Chronic fatigue syndrome is an enemy within our journey to good health. In today’s culture, the desire for more energy ranks high on our wish list. The top reasons why we suffer from fatigue is due to lifestyle factors, psychological, and medical conditions.
Why do some of us feel as though we can do it all? Sadly, it is because we are expected to. We have the responsibility to be both caregivers and breadwinners.There is always a need to prove ourselves. Between work, school, personal and family obligations, these demands can take a physical and emotional toll on us. It affects our ability to enjoy life to its fullest. In the long run, we lose track of what we believe in, what we stand for, what’s important to us, and what makes us happy.

This is done in a series of poses that purifies and tones the body and calms the mind. Tapping into our “inner being” decreases mental stress, increasing physical energy.
Your body’s natural energy flows in channels. Every organ falls along one of these channels ending at the tip of our hands and feet. The act of applying pressure on the hands and feet sends energy signals stimulating the brain. This process unblocks our pathways into the brain, increasing the body’s energy. You can practice this technique on yourself at any time and in any setting whenever you’re feeling sluggish.
