Did you know that mindful body scanning practices help aid in bringing awareness to specific areas of your body, thus creating a deeper connection to your whole self... body mind and spirit? When your awareness of your body is enhanced, you actually may find that tension is more easily released.
By checking in with your body and allowing it to speak to you, you can acknowledge areas that may have been neglected, aches and pains, tension, and stagnation. Once you acknowledge those spaces, you can give yourself permission to release, melt, heal, love, and breathe into your body. It deserves all that it needs.
