Some people think they have to spend hours at the gym sweating on the treadmill or elliptical trainer in order to burn calories and lose weight. As it turns out, the things you do every single day could be burning more calories than you realized. Some discipline with your diet and certain healthy habits can make the difference for those attempt- ing to lose weight.
Getting eight hours of sleep can burn more than 300 calories for the average person. But there’s a good chance you are interested in what activities you can do while awake to help burn calories. Courtesy of Discovery Health and Harvard Medical School, here are common everyday
Men and Women Are Turning to
Maya Abdominal Therapy for Relief
submitted by Northeast Rehab The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage (ATMAM) are founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage. Maya abdominal massage is an external non-invasive manipulation that repositions internal organs that have shifted, thereby restricting the flow of blood. Mayan therapy is an alternative natural treatment that has been known and practiced by midwives and healers for thousands of years. Abdominal and reproductive displacement can be the primary cause of most common female and male complaints including the correction of the prolapsed, fallen or tilted uterus, prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men and for relief of many common digestive disorders and as a treatment for infertility. The massage is performed on the abdomen and lower back in a slow, deep, penetrating manner which helps to guide internal reproductive organs into their proper position. By softening deep muscle tissue spasms, it also helps to release muscular armoring in the trunk and tension in the diaphragm. These ancient massage techniques correct poor hemodynamics of the abdomen and the many organs so vital to digestion, assimilation, elimination, secretions, and reproduction in men and women. Both men and women benefit greatly from these techniques especially when combined with a holistic approach to health, including bodywork, exercise, education and nutrition. Northeast Rehab Outpatient Centers in Haverhill, MA and Windham, currently offer a wide variety of programming which emphasize fitness. Our therapists have specialized training and evaluate and treat clients with the goal of promoting and enhancing health throughout life. We are excited to enhance our programming with the addition of therapists trained in the ancient techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy.
