Taking a relaxing bath immediately engages your parasympathetic nervous system, which is the system required for our bodies to switch into the rest phase.
It puts your body into a state of relaxation as the muscles send a signal to your brain that you’re relaxed and that there’s no threat.
The Chinese have understood for thousands of years that if you combine warm water, minerals, essences with breathing techniques that you have an incredibly effective destress technique.
Hayo’u Bath Ritual
Bathing is crucially important to health in Chinese Medicine. This simple form of hydrotherapy is one of the easiest ways to boost immunity and rectify your health.
Water clears spiritual, energetic, emotional and physical aspects of stress. Bathing is used the world over to relieve stress, simply because hot water relaxes your muscles. Relaxed muscles send a message to the alarm centres in the brain that there’s no threat, thus immediately engaging your parasympathetic nervous system (PNS).
Get in the bath when it is a quarter full. Then bring the temperature up whilst the water is running. As the water temperature rises the sympathetic nerve becomes predominant, blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar levels all rise. Then, to correct this condition, the parasympathetic nerve becomes predominant, blood pressure decreases, heart rate goes down, and blood sugar also comes down, allowing the body to repair itself.
When combined with the the Hayo’u Mineral Bath, the ingredients are absorbed into the skin, each offering powerful benefits.
