Stress can really take its toll on your physical, emotional and spiritual health.
At Aveda, we turn to Ayurveda, a 5,000 year-old healing tradition from India, and western science to find 21st century solutions for the stress we experience every day.
Both teach us that the power of touch, breath and aromaology can be combined to create quick and easy wellness rituals you can do at home to give yourself the mental, physical and emotional break your body needs.
BODY LOTION RITUALS
Perfect for people who type or have other repetitive hand movements during the day.
Apply stress-fixTM body lotion to your hands, hold under your nose and take a deep breath. With your arms in a neutral position, rotate your wrists several times in both directions. Use the thumb of your left hand to massage the palm of your right in strong, circular motions. Repeat for your left palm. Turn your hands over and use the thumb of your left hand to massage the back of your right hand stroking from knuckle to wrist. Finish by using a pinch and release motion to massage each finger. Repeat for opposite hand.
After showering, massage stress-fixTM body lotion into your hands, hold them under your nose and take a deep breath. Then massage onto tense areas such as the neck, shoulders and forearms using the Ayurvedic technique of moving in circular motions at the joints and back-and-forth motions between joints. Apply to your abdomen using clockwise circular motions.
