Zero Gravity Massage Chair
 

Stress is a physiological response to anything our bodies or minds perceive as a threat, and often that physiological response leads to tension in our muscles. Massage, stretching, and exercise can help relieve muscle tension caused by stress that we may not be aware of day-to-day.

Audio-Video Library:

The stress management audio-video library contains recordings for yoga nidra, breathing exercises, guided imagery, affirmations, and meditation. The library also includes relaxing music and sounds such as singing bowls, ocean waves, and rain. 

Yoga Mats and Zafu and Sabuton sets:

The MINDSPA has plenty of space to roll out a yoga mat and practice moving meditation, gentle physical exercise, or somatic mind-body exercises. You can follow a video guide from one of our mind-body exercise DVDs, use the computer to find a guided exercise online, or practice independently. 

The Zafu and Sabuton sets available are cushions that allow for comfortable sitting positions for sitting meditation and reflection. 

Bio-feedback:

Equipped with sensors that read bio-metric data such as respiration and heart rate, the MINDSPA offers software that coaches stress reduction strategies while seeing the real-time impact on your physiology.
