As a society, we have become much more open to talking about stress and overall mental health, a topic that perhaps 50 or 70 years ago may have been taboo or considered a condition to hide. Clinical Hypnotherapist Nancy Rothner, founder and CEO of Pinch Me Therapy Dough has devoted her life-work to stress reduction, an epidemic she has witnessed first-hand. Meeting with Clients daily on coping mechanisms, Nancy wanted to develop a simple, holistic, stress reduction technique that could be used anytime, anywhere. A non-prescription, drug-free, “as-needed” relief supplement that stressed-out souls could use “in a pinch”.
Since so much of our brain is connected by what we do with our hands, we need to become a little more proactive about what we choose to allow into our lives. Taking the time to put our phones and tablets down to get a handle on our stress and sink into a form of relaxation is critical in this day-in-age.
Take notice the next time you feel stress creeping in, you will likely feel your breath become shallow and tight. Alternatively, the moment you are around a scent or a colour that your body perceives positively, whether it is through an associated memory or just an enjoyable aroma that appeals to your senses- your body will allow you to take a full open breath, your heart rate will slow and tension will begin to ease.
Allow Pinch Me Therapy Dough, soft, pliable dough infused with calming aromatherapy to bring you back to those pleasant moments you never wanted to end; basking in the sunlight by the ocean, walking in the quiet forest amongst the cedars- whatever it is for you!
