Dry Salt Therapy promotes better physical and MENTAL health!

The dry salt particles in a dry salt therapy booth act as the “bronchial brush” which help to clear out the micro-organisms from the bronchi.

Recent studies show that America is sleep-deprived, to say the least! Around 40 million people per year suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders and an additional 20 million experience occasional sleep issues.

Poor sleeping habits lead to mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, memory loss, reduced immune system functionality and even weight gain. Not to mention, reduced sense of overall well-being and even loss of productivity.

Why is Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep so important?

REM fosters positive emotions.

A 2009 study reported that taking a nap that includes a period of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep refreshes the brain’s ability and sensitivity to process human emotions by decreasing a negative outlook to occurring emotions while amplifying the recognition of positive emotions. 

The researchers believe that the importance of rapid eye movement sleep is part of a process that increases positive emotions while maintaining high levels of social and professional mental health.

A 2011 study from University of California, Berkeley found that time spent in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep can help people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) minimize painful memories. Researches found that during REM sleep, stress chemistry shuts down and the brain processes emotional experiences in a way that can take the edge off painful memories.

Sleep deprivation also impairs our ability to think clearly!

REM (rapid eye movement) is the deepest stage of the sleep cycle that stimulates the brain regions used in learning. So many studies have been done on REM! When sleep is disrupted it literally wreaks havoc in the nervous system and inhibits our ability to receive clarity.

Sleep concerns may be more likely to affect those with existing mental health conditions!

Once upon a time, sleep problems were thought of as just symptoms of mental health conditions, but now research tells us they may contribute to or even be a cause of them. This also means that treating the sleep disorder may help alleviate the symptoms associated with a mental health condition and vice versa.

Scientists still don’t know why dream activity is so critical to healthy brains, but they do agree that having adequate amounts of REM is vital.

REM is the sleep stage associated with the feeling of refreshment the moment you wake up after a good night’s sleep. But it’s more than that: when sleep stages are interrupted, REM sleep is often sacrificed, as it is the last sleep in the cycle to occur before the sleep cycle repeats itself. From there on out you can see how disrupted REM sleep can literally cause just a myriad of health issues both physically and mentally.

Some tips to combat poor sleep are:

-De-stress! Following a regular bedtime routine and wake up time is essential in building consistency in the body’s sleep cycles

-Say NO to caffeine, alcohol and nicotine close to bedtime

-Exercise or move your body any which way during the day. Could be yoga, pilates, gym or even just light stretching before bed.

-Get adequate sunlight if you can during the day. The more exposure to natural light the better!

-Meditate! That’s right, whip out your INSIGHT timer App and meditate away. Slow down those brain waves with Yoga Nidra at Heal. in Altamonte Springs every Monday night from 7:30pm-8:30pm.

-Put away the electronics an hour before bed. No phone, no tv, just you and your breath.

-Adapt a routine using the LAXMAN light and sound therapy machine at Heal. in Altamonte Springs. LAXMAN light and sound machine uses gentle chromatic lights in goggles that stimulate spontaneous bursts of meditation as well as Rapid Eye Movement… all of this synced to Binaural Beats to help the body relax and the mind settle into stillness.

Until next time,

Peace and Wellness.

We all experience anxiety, there’s no doubt about that. At some point in life there comes a time where stress grows, life happens and our self-maintenance takes the back seat.

Anxiety can creep up on you without a warning and today we would like to share with you 3 ways in which you can naturally treat anxiety whenever it does arise.

Yoga, meditation and gut health.

They all play a powerful role in helping to ease the intensity of stress, anxiety, doubt, fear, restless, etc.

Yoga is a gentle practice of being able to press pause and let go of what no longer serves you. At Heal. in Altamonte Springs all of the yoga that is offered here consists of mindful movement, breath work and meditation.

If you or somebody you know experience high stress levels, trying out a yin yoga class for stress relief is exactly what you need to counter balance being in a constant fight or flight mode throughout the majority of your day.

Yoga uses the breath and specific movements throughout the body to open, release and let go of stored stagnant energy. When energy cannot flow freely through the body it is when we are likely to experience a deeper resistance. With this resistance comes the inability to recharge, renew and restore the body… mind and soul!

Going with the practice of yoga, meditation also plays a big part in reducing stress and anxiety symptoms. So many studies have shown how meditation literally turns off the part of your brain that is always scanning for threats in it’s environment and with gentle awareness, so can you enjoy the benefits of meditation.

Meditation opens the gateway to higher resolve where you not only connect to your best, loving self – you also gain the ability to connect to others on a greater, higher level! Meditation practice should be considered to be just as important as flossing your teeth, but through meditation you floss the conscious and subconscious mind.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs we offer Yoga Nidra every Monday from 730-830pm. Yoga Nidra is also translated to be called yogic sleep. In the practice of Yoga Nidra, the intention is to slow down the brain waves so much that you are in a deeply meditative yet aware state of being where true deep change and healing can occur.

The benefits of this practice are endless. Increased wellbeing, decreased anxiety, better sleep and overall an improvement in VIGOR! You receive the same benefits of an 8 hour sleep in this 1 hour class.

Last but not least, gut health plays a direct role in our mental wellbeing. What you put into your body, whether it’s food, thoughts, substances etc all create an effect within the gut. Studies show that maintaining a healthy gut through probiotics, stress reduction and through eating whole foods can signficantly decrease anxiety and dperession symptoms.

At Heal., we have found that specific probiotic strains through Amare supplements is key in targeting the specific neuropathways and vagus nerve that connects gut to brain. Not only do our thoughts and emotions and feelings live in the brain space, but also in the gut! No wonder they call our gut the second brain, science has proved that there is a strong connection between the two.

If you are interested in learning more about Amare, we have monthly Heal Your Gut Improve Your Mental Health classes at Heal. for you to learn more information. Sometimes all we need to do to heal is try out new things. Some might work better for you than others but the end result is all the same – a sense of coming back home to who you truly are, without the layers of stress, worry, doubt, fear…etc…

We hope this article has helped you out today in thinking about how you can maintain your anxiety levels to a minimum through the practice of yoga, meditation and through gut healing.

Let us know if you have any questions at all.

407-300-5364

Your mood can be affected by a variety of factors, including thought patterns, chemical imbalances, and sleep quality. But what about your gut?

Research has shown that our gut literally functions as our second brain. Since 2013, the US National Institute of Mental Health has funded several studies to better understand how the gut microbiome (made up of bacteria, fungi, viruses) influences your thoughts and feelings.

It’s well known that stress can influence mood, and that may be partly due to the role stress plays in gut function. According to an article published in Harvard Health Publications, psycho social factors such as stress can directly influence your gut’s physiology, affecting the balance of bacteria and thereby impacting your immune system and mood. If you want the gut and brain working together in favor of more positive emotions (in addition to overall health), it’s vital that you keep your stress levels in check.

Thankfully, lifestyle changes can be made to help bring gut bacteria closer towards homeostasis, which will then influence your emotional health. Following these four tips may help restore your gut health: 


1. Take a probiotic.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs, we carry a specific probiotic gut-brain axis supplement line called Amare. Amare means “to love”. Amare has created the first award winning gut-brain axis system. The specific strains of probiotics in their supplements play a huge role in improving overall physical vigor as well as mental health! Click here to learn more about them. Most probiotics you receive off of the counter do not hold the required amount needed to target the gut in a way that helps to increase the good bacteria in the gut microbiome. With Amare, studies have shown that depression and anxiety symptoms significantly decrease within 30 days of consistently taking the Fundamentals Pack of probiotics and other Ayurvedic supplements paired together in a cohesive pack.

2. Eat Whole Foods

Whole foods provide us with the needed nutrients that our bodies best thrive off of. Nutrient dense foods are key in helping us to feel better not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. The quote that states “eat the rainbow” is one to live by! The more colors in our diet, the better the variety of whole foods we are allowing our bodies to enjoy. Whole foods not only provide nourishment to the body, but they can also help maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut. Try replacing processed foods with foods that benefit the gut, such as asparagus, broccoli, carrots and more.

3. Stress Less!

Stress plays a big role in gut health as it has the power to actually change the gut balance of bacteria. Reduce your body’s stress levels by practicing relaxation techniques such as gentle yoga for stress relief, relaxation massages, guided meditations, float therapy and more!

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs we are the only center in Central Florida that is a one stop shop for all that you may need to de-stress! Come check us out off of 436 for a quick tour or consultation to better reduce pain and stress in your life. We have everything that you could possibly need, all in one place!

4. Be mindful of sugar intake.

High consumption of sugar can also lead to an imbalance of gut bacteria, affecting your gut and immune system. Try to limit your intake of refined sugar and instead stick with natural sources of sugar found in organic fruits or raw organic honey.

And that’s all folks!

While there are many habits that can negatively impact your emotions and moods, there are many ways to positively impact your emotional and mental states as well. Take these healthy eating habits and steps that are well within your control to further increase your overall wellness and happiness.

Give us a call at 407-300-5364 for more information about Amare or to schedule a stress management consultation to compose a plan targeted towards your specific mood balancing needs.

In this day in age with the access we have to all platforms of Social Media, it’s easy to come across yoga influencers/students/teachers in vibrant yoga pants contouring their bodies in ways that aren’t necessary to receive the healing benefits of yoga.


Try this out, if you are on Instagram search “yoga” or “daily yoga” in the search bar and what do you see? People doing handstands, putting their feet behind their head, and more.

We aren’t here to say that that is wrong or incorrect, but more so that no matter what, it’s going to give off the vibe that in order to be a practitioner of yoga you must be able to meet these standards.

We are here to tell you, that is completely false.

You see, yoga in itself is derived from the Eastern world where the literal meaning behind yoga is “union”. Union of what? Of mind, body and soul.

The intention behind coming to your yoga mat is to shift. Whether you are coming to your yoga mat with previous stress or anxiousness from the day, perhaps you are looking to build strength and endurance not only physically but also mentally – you arrive to the mat with the expectation that you will shift… from one state of being to another.

Yoga is meant to be practiced by everyone. Every body type, every human has the right and ability to practice yoga safely.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs we only offer accessible yoga to the students that walk through our doors. We won’t turn you away if you’ve never stepped foot into a yoga class, in fact, we will invite you with open arms.

We provide you a safe place to explore your body, tune in to your feelings and with the help and guidance of your yoga teacher – stress and pain relief will also follow.

So the next time that you come across a famous yoga teacher or influencer on social media, do not assume that that is all there is to yoga!

Let go of the expectations you might already have put on yourself… minimize the negative self talk or doubt that “yoga is too hard” “I’m not flexible enough” “my mind never stops working” “I don’t know if I am ready for yoga” so on and so forth, and begin to replace all of those internal sentences with the words “I am enough.”, “I am complete.”, “I am perfect as I am.” because this is the truth.

If you are ready to incorporate compassionate, accepting, accessible yoga into your life… you have come to the right place.

Check out our website to learn more about the different, gentle and restorative yoga options that we offer! We have everything ranging from Gentle Yoga to Yoga Basics for Beginners, Yin Yoga for Stress Relief and even Yoga Nidra (aka yogic sleep!).

You never regret taking a yoga class, for it is on your mat that you can learn how to integrate all of the lessons into your daily life through breathwork, meditation and mindfulness.

We hope to see you here at Heal. in Altamonte Springs for your first yoga class!

The light in us sees, loves and supports that light you have within you.

Namaste!

Do you toss and turn at night wondering why you can’t just turn off your restless mind and ease your restless body?

Do you wake up halfway through the night with anxious thoughts racing through your mind?

Are there days where although you slept 8+ hours, you feel like you only slept for 2?

If you answered “yes” to any or all of the questions above, we are here to let you know that your sleep does not have to suffer anymore.

Sleep is so important as it is where our body heals, restores and digests.

We are here to share with you 3 ways in which you can improve sleep naturally!

At Heal. we love to hear when people tell us that they had restful sleep after taking a yoga class or having a massage! It’s like music to our ears.

Our intention is simple – Heal.

Let’s start by talking about Yoga.

How can yoga correlate with better sleep?

In yoga, we work directly with our breath to facilitate energetic flow throughout our bodies, also known as Prana.

Pranayama, or the conscious awareness of breath, is what separates yoga from any other type of physical exercise.

This breath paired with gentle movements to allow energy to flow freely through the body is what will help dissolve stress or tension hidden in your body that you may not even know you had. Releasing excess energy in this healthy and mindful way is what can help alleviate insomnia, and aid in deeper sleep.

You’ll notice after performing even just a 10 to 15 minute yoga sequence that focuses on hips, low back and the upper chest and heart area – that your sleep will be much more sound, deep and restorative.

At Heal. we offer Yin Yoga classes as well as Yoga Nidra classes which help aid in grounding the nervous system to help flow into that “rest and digest” mode as opposed to being in “fight or flight” mode. These are gentle forms of yoga that bring true relaxation to the mind and body that can in return lead to plentiful sleep.

How does massage help with better sleep?

Aside from feeling your very best after a deep relaxation massage, you can also expect your night’s sleep to be sound and still.

Massage is an all-natural and soothing healing treatment that helps the body fall asleep and stay asleep for longer periods of time. If the reason in which you have trouble sleeping is pain related – massage is a great therapy to help relieve pain in the body.

Getting a massage booked in the evening is a great way to allow the relaxing and peaceful feelings to be carried over into bed time.

Massage therapy boosts serotonin levels which means that as the precursor to melatonin, this “happy hormone” increase will play a direct role in your sleep cycles. More serotonin, better sleepy!

Whats the hype about Essential Oils? Can they truly help with sleep?

Our answer is YES.

Essential oils are very powerful in helping to soothe and ground the central nervous system. Click here to read more about Essential Oils and emotions!

Lavender, clary sage, frankincense, roman chamomile and more are great essential oil’s to use at bedtime. These oils have been proven to slow down the heart rate, lower blood pressure and put the nervous system into a parasympathetic state aka “rest and digest” mode, where true healing from the inside out can occur.

At Heal. we have the ability to incorporate CBD Cream into your massage that helps to reduce inflammation in the body, soothing to the skin and pain relieving! Sustainably harvested Lavender, Frankincense and Lemongrass essential oils all play a part in this organic CBD cream.

This blend of oils accompanied by arnica oil and CBD… it’s a great excuse to rub yourself down with some oil before bedtime! You’ll be lulled into a deep restorative sleep, allowing the body and mind to become so still that you’re able to hit and stay in REM throughout the night.

If this seems like something you would be interested in, let us know for your next massage at Heal. that you would like to incorporate some CBD goodness!

There you have it folks, 3 ways to naturally improve sleep.

Yoga, massage and essential oils.

If you are interested in learning more about either healing therapy – please don’t hesitate to reach us at Heal. in Altamonte Springs.

We are located off of 436 close to Ronald Reagan.

Or give us a call at 407-300-5364 for any questions.

We wish you soothing sleep and restful days.

Yoga Nidra is also known as yogic sleep!

There are so many endless benefits to Yoga Nidra!

It is proven that Yoga Nidra minimizes tension, trains the mind, clears up the unconscious, awakens creativity, enhances memory and learning capacity and counteracts stress!

Yoga nidra acts both as a preventive and curative therapy. When we are stressed the sympathetic nervous system becomes activated and adopts the ‘fight or flight’ mechanism. In normal circumstances, the parasympathetic system takes over after the emergency goes. But mostly it has been seen that the sympathetic system remains active most of the time resulting in the experience of distress. In Yoga nidra an attempt is made to activate the parasympathetic system, and slowly a balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems is achieved by inducing complete physical, emotional and mental relaxation. In this way the practice of Yoga Nidra counteracts stress.

At the start of Yoga Nidra, the teacher will guide you through an energetic release to release tension through the body followed by setting an intention for your practice or also called a resolve.

With Yoga Nidra, you work into the subconscious mind and so if there is a belief system or thought that you want to let go of – during your Yoga Nidra practice is when you are able to rewire and rewrite this toxic belief system.

By stating the intention at the beginning of your practice such as “I am __________” and then filling in the blank with affirmations such as I am whole, I am complete, I am loved, I have clarity, I am trusting, etc.. this is where true healing can happen.

Now onto the 5 reasons why you should try out a Yoga Nidra class!

1)Anyone Can Practice Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a practice that is so gentle, healing and relaxing that people of every age can participate. It’s easy enough to follow and all you need to do is to lay down comfortably on the floor. At Heal. with the use of props, bolsters, blankets and eye pillows you are able to experience maximum comfort during your practice.

2)You Cannot Fail at Yoga Nidra

As you lie down, supported in savasana, all you have to do is follow the voice that is guiding you. It’s likely that you will remember certain parts of the meditation and not others. Every time you come to the practice you encounter a new experience—none of which is wrong. Falling asleep is okay too, as you will still receive benefits while the unconscious mind is absorbing the practice. Your body and mind will receive the healing it needs. Each time you practice it can be a little different, but always rejuvenating.

3)You Can Practice Yoga Nidra Easily Day to Day

We get it, seated meditations are frustrating – when you’re trying to clear your mind, bring your awareness to your breath or come back to the intention. The great part about Yoga Nidra is that it is always guided and so you don’t have to worry about overthinking about your to-do-lists. There are plenty of guided Yoga Nidra classes on Youtube and Insight Timer that can be easily accessed through your phone or computer. You choose the length and you choose when in your day is easiest for you to practice. Some people prefer practicing during the middle of the day instead of grabbing that extra cup of coffee, other’s prefer practicing at night before bed. Put on your headphones, lay down and then drift off into well deserved rest.

4)Two Words: Stress Reduction

Yoga nidra promotes deep rest and relaxation that isn’t found in your average meditation practice. The stages of body scan and breath awareness alone can be practiced to calm the nervous system, leading to less stress and better health!

5)You Get To Learn More About Yourself with Yoga Nidra

During yoga nidra you are able to experience an emotion and come “face to face” with what you want to overcome, without “diving into it” completely—meaning without feeling the emotion so completely that you become overwhelmed. Over time you continue to experience the emotion and associated feelings, moving deeper into the practice. You will notice where in your life you may have felt held back or unable to let go of things that no longer served you and with this practice, you will notice a shift in your mind, beliefs and perceptions – all leading you to your greatest good.

If you would like to try out a yoga nidra class, check out Heal. in Altamonte Springs on Monday nights at 7:30.

Once you go nidra you don’t go back!

Namaste.

At one point or another in life we start to disconnect from ourselves and end up feeling lost or unsure of what our next steps in life are. Sometimes.. most times.. the best thing someone can do during these points in life is to completely press pause, slow down and go on a vacation or retreat as a way to reset life. Retreats are relaxing and rejuvenating not only to the mind but the body as well. You begin to come out of your day to day schedule and through a yoga retreat — begin to incorporate more self-care into your life.

Look, you can only go at 100 miles an hour/ 7 days a week/ with little to no rest in between your responsibilities for so long before coming to a complete stop and burn out. A soulful getaway is the perfect way to re-energize your body, mind and soul while connecting back to your inner self.

Yoga retreats take you away from the hustle and bustle of life and give you the opportunity to spend time with YOU! You never regret going on a yoga retreat – I can tell you that much… which is why we want to share with you FIVE reasons why you deserve to go on a yoga retreat as soon as possible!

1.You get to JUST BE.

When we are faced with having to put on different hats for prolonged periods of time we tend to lose who we are at our core. Taking care of yourself is so important in life as is the ability to love yourself unconditionally throughout highs and lows, ups and downs. As we get caught up in the life around us we often times forget to take out time for Self Care. With the help of a yoga retreat you can finally devote time to yourself, your needs, your mental and physical health. You can finally let go and be the You you always craved to be!

A nourishing escape from the outside world, a relaxing yoga retreat or getaway is a sure way to bring all of your attention towards self-discovery, self-acceptance, self-exploration and most importantly self-compassion!

No family obligations to tend to, no work, noTHING to do… nowhere to go… no one to be but just YOU.

2. You grow into your self-care practice.

Let’s face it, we were never taught how to take care of ourselves. We were never taught how to put ourselves first. We’ve always put others before us and in return we are left feeling empty, tired, maybe even resentful at times. You’ll notice right away that when you embark on a yoga retreat of any kind that the intention behind coming together for a weekend getaway is so that we can learn how to take care of ourselves! It’ll become such a routine and habit to wake up, move your body, eat nourishing meals throughout the day, rest as needed, meditate and breathe, that you’ll begin to wonder why you never implemented this into your daily life before!

3. You make new friends and enjoy new experiences.

A yoga retreat is packed with a lot of fun as well. It gives you a chance to meet new like-minded people and explore new places. We all have an inner wanderer within us and going on a yoga retreat adventure will be an all encompassing exploration of cultivating friendships, connection, serenity and bliss!

4. You adapt into a Healthier Lifestyle!

Yoga is a disciplinary practice and at a yoga retreat or at yoga teacher training, the practitioners learn to live a disciplined and a better quality life. At yoga retreat, you do all the work on time and as per schedule from eating meals to sleeping to exercising, to relaxing, or to doing other activities. These good habits we tend to indulge in our normal lives and make our lifestyle and living better and healthier.

In today’s time, most of the health issues we face are lifestyle-based. On a yoga retreat you change your lifestyle for those days or weeks you are on a goodness getaway as you learn to eat mindfully, while indulging in eating a vegetarian, vegan and overall high nutrition diet for better health. Not only that, but you’ll also detox from social media, your electronic devices and dive deeper into mindful living – day after day.

5. You can let go and start anew.

A yoga retreat is not only about rejuvenation, it is also the opportunity to have a soulful get away from your daily life, work, family, deadlines, and responsibilities. During yoga retreats you will notice a clearer mind, balanced emotions, and overall improved wellbeing!

You learn the art of living in the present moment. When you unwind and reset, by staying away from your home, you start appreciating and embracing your relationships. Not only this, yoga retreats give you a new perspective on life and new eyes to see the world. You gain a more positive outlook and start seeing the good in people and surroundings. With this awareness and realization, you develop the ability to let go of the past and kick-start your life!

Experience the inner-tranquility that you deserve. It’s time you take your wellbeing and health back into your own hands and we believe a yoga retreat can be that positive reset you have been looking for!

We would love to invite you to a Beach Relaxation Retreat at the healing beach of Siesta Key coming this July. From the 12th to the 15th experience all of the greatness touched on above and so much more.

Namaste.

Ever struggled in choosing between chiropractic care and massage therapy? Well, you don’t have to choose just one anymore! Chiropractic care and massage can help speed up the recovery process from sore muscles to other, more drastic medical issues. There have been studies shown that people have found relief from insomnia, back pain, arthritis, anxiety, soreness, fatigue and more just from combining these two powerful treatments.

Chiropractors are a specialized medical professional that use hands-on therapy to align the musculoskeletal system of the body to promote pain relief, healing, and overall wellness.

Chiropractors pay particular attention to the proper alignment of the vertebrae of the spine, though the bones, muscles, and connective tissues of other areas are also important to their practice.

Massage therapy is one of the most popular therapies as it not only feels amazing, it works wonders!

Traditionally, massage has been used to treat muscular pain and injuries, strain or injury to the soft tissues, such as those that arise from repetitive strain or spending too much time sitting in an office.

However, the benefits of massage therapy have become increasingly recognized for a wide range of other conditions as well. Studies have shown that massage therapy has been able to treat health conditions such as anxiety, high blood pressure, insomnia, and digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome.

Both chiropractic care and massage therapy have excellent outcomes for wellness when it comes to both mental health and wellbeing as well as pain and stress relief.

However, the aims of the therapies are different. While chiropractic seeks to promote and maintain proper alignment of the bones of the spine and surrounding tissues as well as other areas of the body, massage therapy focuses on releasing tension from the muscles and encouraging deep relaxation. It really is the best of both worlds!

There are a couple of ways that massage therapy and chiropractic care can be used together.

Here in Altamonte Springs, we have two great places for you to receive both chiropractic care AND massage! At Heal. we have highly trained massage therapists that will cater to your specific and individual needs on a case by case basis. We refer many of our clients to Dr. Christina Cuellar over at Revival Chiropractic in Altamonte Springs as well!

Dr. Cuellar uses a gentle approach to chiropractic care where you won’t experience your neck being turned forcefully or any cracking of bones. She uses a specific approach that provides such great results to not only your physical health… but also your mental and emotional health.

The biggest reason in why we believe chiropractic care and massage therapy work so powerfully together is due to the effect it has on the nervous system. Studies have shown that your body must be in the right environment for healing, meaning that if you are constantly in “fight or flight” mode – your body cannot heal in this state.

Massage and chiropractic will help to ground your nervous system into the parasympathetic nervous system also known as the “rest and digest” mode.

This is where healing can take place.

If you’re ready to take your life back into your own hands and feel your best – because you deserve to live a healthy life – then don’t hesitate to call Heal. at 407-300-5364 or Revival Chiropractic at 407.403.5567 to start your healing journey.


We are here for you!

“Once you truly understand that you are just beautiful energy wrapped in human form, your fear and “otherness” will disappear and you will experience deep belonging and fellowship.” – Radha Agrawal

If you feel as though your energy has been muted or your fire is dimmed, know that you don’t have to feel this way forever.

You see, our energy defines us and the people we surround ourselves with help shape our energy! Yes, everyone and anyone who you spend a lot of time with shapes your energy. Think about it, when you’re around that one friend that constantly is complaining about her job, relationship or other melodrama, don’t you sometimes go home completely depleted and lacking any energy?

Now on the other side of this, think about a friend that completely lights you up! They ooze positivity amidst the chaos of life, always emitting radiance and happiness because they’ve found that within themselves. Your conversations with each other bring you life – literally! The cloud that was once over your head following you around is now replaced by the sun as it beams down on you.

This is the feeling and type of energy you should actively surround yourself with.

It’s either energizing or completely depleting – you choose!

Our bodies are incredible. How we choose to take care of them is so important. Your “diet” is not just the foods you eat but also how much you sleep, how often you move your body and also who you allow into your energetic bubble.

You can think of energy through these different words – maybe they resonate with you better, maybe they don’t!

Vibration. Spark. Spirit. Attitude. Presence.

All of this to say that ENERGY is the most potent human attribute available to us and we need to pay closer attention to it.

“Energy is a great equalizer in life. It doesn’t matter what you do for a living or how much money you have – the energy YOU put out is the energy YOU get back! Negative energy breeds negative community. Positive energy breeds positive community. It is that simple”

Energy is the invisible backbone of our lives. It controls the way in which we perceive the world and how others perceive us! It quietly shapes our daily existence and it also controls our physical health! When we are stressed, hurt, angry or sad, we often become physically rigid. Our breath isn’t as slow and fluid and our bodies don’t heal as rapidly as normal because we are in this suffocating fight or flight response.

In order for our bodies to heal – physical, mental and even emotional bodies – we must do our best to stay energy positive in order to maintain relaxed muscles, easy breath, and calmer, happier lives.

Take a moment right here to gently tune in to your “Energetic Meter”.

Are you feeling as though your energy gas tank is on E? When was the last time you filled up your tank with nourishing, positive, healthy energy? When was the last time you relaxed? Are you eating well? What are you doing right now to energize yourself?

If you’re mind had a difficult time answering these questions or you feel as though you’re constantly giving and giving without receiving anything in return – it could mean that you’re due for an energetic reset.

Here at Heal. in Altamonte Springs we believe that you, yes you, are so capable of living your best life – day in and day out. When the weight of the world is on your shoulders however, that statement seems a little far fetched.


Just as your car needs frequent maintenance to keep on going and running smoothly, as do you!
You can’t expect to be living your life walking around on Empty! Why would you want to?


On the other side of stress there is a luscious green patch of self-care and self-kindness grass that is waiting for you. This radiant, abundant, joyful, open and healthy YOU that deserves to shine in the spotlight will finally be able to bloom and blossom.


If you’re looking to dive head first into your Energetic Reset journey, we’re here for you.


Know that we are always just one call away. If your body and mind are tired – yoga, massage, light and sound therapy, salt booth, CBD and meditation are all great tools that will assist in peeling away the layers of stress.
