Meditation: Meditation can help create balance, calm the mind and ease stress, keep you grounded, and connect your mind to your body. Create some time for yourself to meditate everyday, even if only for 5 minutes. If interested in guided meditations, contact Helen Heinmiller (484-459-4425), who sees clients Tuesdays in the office. She uses Solar Color Energy Therapy to help you on your journey to achieving optimum health and wellness. Visit her website www.evolvingtruths.com for more information (link located in blogroll).

Yoga: Yoga is an amazing form of exercise to help with so many different health ailments and issues. Please practice safely, and consult a doctor prior to starting a practice if there is an injury. For Fertility, I recommend “Restoring Fertility: yoga for optimal fertility,” by Brandon Horn and Wendy Yu. They are licensed Acupuncturists and Fertility specialists who created a yoga program based on phases of a woman’s menstrual cycle. It is available for purchase on Amazon, or through their website www.restoringfertility.com

Qi (Chi) Gong: Qi Gong is an ancient form of meditation and exercise that helps qi (energy/life force) flow freely throughout the body, clearing blockages and creating full flow of blood and fluids throughout the body. Qi Gong can enliven and rejuvenate the body, while clearing and brightening the mind.

Massage: Massage therapy is an excellent way to relax the body and mind and release any built up tension in the body. There are certain points that may be contraindicated during specific times of your menstrual cycle, IVF stimulation cycle, or pregnancy, so please ask Kerri if there are any areas of the body that should not be stimulated. For massages in Kerri’s office, please contact Diane Cellini of West Chester Massage & Bodywork – 484-995-7183, www.westchestermassageandbodywork.com. She’s available Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturdays. (link located in blogroll)
