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.

We are located off of 436 close to Ronald Reagan.

“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.


We look forward to relaxing with you!407-300-5364or send us an email at info@heal407.com

Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you a special announcement of what we will now be offering at Heal. in Altamonte Springs!

4 words: Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. Yes, it is as heavenly as it sounds!

The benefits are amazing. You can literally see and feel the effects of the salt after one session. Your skin, body and mind will thank you! So how does it work?

The purpose of Himalayan Salt Stone Massage is to assist in bringing balance to the autonomic nervous system by strengthening the parasympathetic nervous system! Let’s break down those big words: your nervous system has two “settings”. 1) Fight or Flight and 2) Rest and Digest. In our day to day lives we spend a majority of the time in the “fight or flight” response through heightened stress, traffic, deadlines, obligations, and more. Your body is then not able to heal properly while in this state, which is why Himalayan Salt Stone Massages are here to save the day.

You see, the warmth of the Salt Stones activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System (rest and digest) where the environment for healing in your body is at it’s most optimal state. The human body is made primarily of water and salt and because Himalayan Crystal salt contains all 84 trace minerals and trace elements of which the body is made, it’s no surprise that our bodies respond so well to the powerful effects of a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage.

What makes Himalayan Salt Stone Massage so therapeutic are the negative ions that are produced to create a sense of peace and relaxation. What do negative ions do? Well, when there are too many positive ions in the body it leads to inflammation. Therefore, being massaged with the stones helps balance the positive ions with negative ions. This can help reduce inflammation. On top of the decrease of inflammation, the heat of the salt melts the tense and tight fascia to allow your massage therapist to go deeper into the muscles throughout your massage. Talk about deep, deep relaxation!

The salt stones used during your Himalayan Salt Stone Massage are smooth and will easily glide across your back. Some of the stones are shaped like hearts which definitely adds a loving essence to your massage, at least I think so!

Your skin will be left feeling refreshed and renewed. I can also guarantee you’ll have the best sleep of your life the night of your Himalayan Salt Stone Massage! Profound healing, unwinding and toxin release. Speaking of toxin release, did you know that the salt rocks placed on the soles of your feet during your Himalayan Salt Stone Massage can actually pull up toxins through sweat? Perfect for hangovers and jet-lag!

Click here to order your own Himalayan Salt Stones and Salt Lamps to either place in your bath to draw out toxins or to place inside your home to aid in detoxifying your living space with the same benefits that you’d experience during a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage: better sleep, improve mood, ease coughing, reduce allergies and inflammation!

If you’re ready to relieve stress, reduce your blood pressure, dive into serenity and improve overall well-being – don’t hesitate in reaching out to us to schedule your Himalayan Salt Stone Massage at Heal. in Altamonte Springs! We’re here for you!

You are worthy of the ultimate happiness. You deserve it and should accept it. Promise me that you won’t feel guilty about it when you get it. Guilt is not invited to your happiness party – you won’t even tell him where it is. If he asks about it, you should be like “No, I think you’re thinking of something else…” and then run away very quickly.

We’ve been programmed to feel as though we don’t deserve what it is that we truly desire. Aside from wanting to manifest material things such as the latest car or a big home – when was the last time you sat down with yourself and asked “What do I want?”

Perhaps this question comes to you with some hesitance. Our subconscious mind is linked to referring back to past thought patterns and beliefs that we have grown up with, some being “I’m not good enough” or “this is too good to be true”, yet the reality of this is that these limiting beliefs about yourself and what your life CAN look like, are all here to show you where you have poured your energy out into other places, people or things that are no longer serving your highest good.

At times we feel as though if we just had that one last piece of the puzzle brought into our lives – whether it’s a relationship, a job, a vacation destination, a raise or promotion – we’d be at our ultimate happiness! Yet, when those things don’t manifest in your timing… or at all even, it can be frustrating, disappointing and even discouraging in some aspects.

So as you sit there – pouting and grumpy over the fact that the last piece of the puzzle was just out of arms reach – ask yourself, “what joy and bliss could have (insert said thing here) brought into my life that I’m apparently not experiencing right now?”

Yes, this is deep. Yes, this exercise will help you get to the bottom of it. Yes, this can bring up a ton of other questions but you have all the answers within.

At some point or another you’ll begin to realize that whether or not you have x,y or z in your life – you’ll always have yourself. You’ll always be able to rely on yourself for everything and anything! You are worthy of the life you desire only after you take back your power from expectations, toxic situations and anything else that is standing in the way between you and yourself.

At this point, you’re hopefully able to connect the dots and see that suddenly when you align with your truest nature… the things meant for you will always find you because it is your divine birth right to be happy! It is in your life blueprint, so to speak, to work towards becoming the healthiest and happiest YOU there there is.

Remember, there is only one You, and only You hold the power to make this life your best life. You are worthy because you are You. Your happiness and health is found inside of yourself above anything else. So next time you make a wish and it doesn’t come true according to your expectations – take a step back and see it as a gift. Perhaps something greater, something more aligned with who you are becoming or something that is going to sweep you off your feet is going to replace whatever it was that you had originally hoped for.

When you are in this place of finding your worth and joy within while sprinkling in some gratitude into the equation, you’ll begin to see that no matter what, life is always happening for you… not to you. So as your deepest wishes begin to come true, emotional fulfillment will reign through all aspects of your life and you’ll thank yourself for putting in the work to clear away the need to rely on external circumstances to bring you happiness.

Like a smart person once said… “the happiness you feel within is the icecream… and all the outer manifestations that you cultivate through positive thinking and gratitude are just the cherries on top,” – or maybe I just made that up. Either way, it’s true!

Happy healing!
until next week,
-Heal.

Stress, we all feel it- we all have bills to pay, deadlines to meet, and relationships to navigate. The stressors of our everyday life, no matter how mundane and normalized they might seem, trigger our bodies “flight or fight response.”

When we are overexposed to these stressors like high stress jobs, interpersonal drama, financial worries, our bodies may get stuck in the flight or fight mode causing chronic stress.

The longer we experience chronic stress the worse it is for our bodies and minds. 43% of all adults suffer adverse health effects from stress and over half of all doctors visits are for stress related complaints or aliments.

Chronic stress can cause high blood pressure, fatigue, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, tense muscles, sleep problems and more, it starts to take over our lives mentally and physically speaking.

Here at Heal. We address the mental and physical sides of your health, you cannot treat one without the other. That’s how our medicine cabinets fill up with anti-inflammatory meds, antidepressants, high blood pressure medication, etc.

We often only go seek remedies for our physical ailments while neglecting the mental aspects of what might be causing our pain. If you only treat physical ailments then you’ll end up in a never ending cycle of seeking treatments for temporary relief of pain. All of Heal.’s services offer both pain relief and relaxation to help maximize your time spent on self- care.

Give us call or text at 407.300.5364 or send us a Facebook message to request a free consultation to help personalize your self-care treatment.
