It’s no secret that moms (and dads) lead very busy lives. Not only are we juggling a career to support our families, we are also enduring the daily grind of taking care of our children. Everything from doctor visits, daycare, school and sports activities… sitting/cheering on the sidelines, driving back and forth, repeat, rewind, repeat! It is obvious that being a parent is an exhausting job, but one with so many rewards as well.
With all of the action, it is so easy to forget to take care of ourselves, personally. It is something I have dealt with over the last few years of motherhood. Whether it was stress, exhaustion or chronic back pain I would let it go so long that I would feel immobilized.
Maintaining optimal wellness ensures that we are healthy enough to make the best decision for ourselves and our kids… the ones who need us the most. Many of us have a gym membership and make our best efforts to exercise or eat right. However, an annual physical or even booking an occasional massage, may not completely improve our health. Whether its stress, fatigue, chronic pain or weight loss goals, ignoring our body’s ailments and needs can have a greater negative impact as we grow older.
We recently discovered Defy Cryotherapy and Float, which brings the best of med-spas and rehab centers into one convenient studio right in our backyard! They help each individual develop an optimal wellness plan that is specifically tailored to their personal needs.
If you are looking to relax, recover and elevate your mood, a sensory deprived float room can be just the right thing. Sensory deprivation float rooms are offered at Defy Studios. Lack of sound and light and the ability to float effortlessly as if in space, means the body can fully relax and is able to focus completely on restoring itself during a float session. Float rooms are perfect for those that would like to reduce their blood pressure, improve circulation in the body, reduce any pain and soreness, and relieve stress and anxiety. Defy offers the most luxurious float suites around.
Cryotherapy is a service that is offered at Defy Studios that can be done by itself or paired up with other services. Cryotherapy helps individuals recover faster from injuries, relieves muscle and joint pain, helps with fibromyalgia, improves sleep and circulation, and reduces stress, anxiety and fatigue. What mom couldn’t use improved sleep and reduced stress and anxiety?!
The session is a quick 2-3 minutes and exposes the body to the coldest temperatures to help diminish negative symptoms a person may be experiencing. Cyro Lift is also offered as a service, which compliments whole-body Cryotherapy. Cryo Lift rejuvenates the face, helping to maintain a healthy and youthful appearance. Many people are turning to this rather than taking the injectable route.
Another therapeutic service they offer is BEMER Vascular Physical Therapy which improves sleep and increases focus and mental acuity. This relaxing treatment is done by laying on a pad to stimulate the body’s natural blood flow, while the organs, as well as the muscles in the body, receive energy, nutrients and oxygen to promote ultimate performance.
Air Relax is another great service offered at Defy, which applies pneumatic compression to the legs while in a relaxed ambiance. Air Relax improves leg circulation reducing pain and swelling, rejuvenating your legs through an amazing massage.
The 3D Zero gravity massage system is incredible. Once you get into the system, it pivots to move your center of gravity into your chest and you start feeling very light. In this position, you get a whole body massage. This is a real whole body massage from the back of your head down to your hands and fingers all the way down to your legs and feet.
A Far Infrared Sauna is also offered at Defy Studios. FIR Sauna is a great way to detox the body, releasing harmful toxins that the body builds up. FIR saunas allow the body to eliminate up to 7 times more toxins than the standard sauna. They are a wonderful way to relax and relieve joint/muscle pain and an added benefit is that it promotes weight loss. While sitting in the sauna, the heart rate rises, similar to exercise and naturally burns calories. Simply relaxing in a Far Infrared sauna for 20 minutes can burn up to 300 calories. Skin also benefits from far infrared saunas, as toxins can be eliminated resulting in softer and clearer pores!
Creating a wellness plan is an essential task that parents and busy professionals can greatly benefit from. The healthier we are, the more we are able to spend quality time with our children, juggle our careers and also have a personal life. Defy Studios offers convenient treatments for parents who have very busy lifestyles. These treatments are quick and can be done all by themselves or combined, can be done on lunch breaks so minimal time is taken away from family or work… they understand how hectic life can be.
