Let Byron Heal You
Byron Bay is known as a happy place and there is a good reason why.
“We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.” – Mother Teresa
Ever heard a surfer refer to the ocean as their medicine? Turns out, there’s a little truth to this statement.
Read on to find out why jumping in the ocean makes you feel so damn fine!…
– Swimming in the ocean pumps blood from our lower limbs to the abdominal region and brings more oxygen to the brain making us more alert and active.
– The sound of waves alters neural patterns in the brain, lulling you into a deep relaxation, rejuvenating both mind and body
– Seawater increases the skins elasticity and improves its outer appearance. Regularly swimming in salt water will aid in treatment of skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis and acne.
– The natural ingredients harvested beneath the waves – sea salts, algae and seaweed – are packed full of nourishing minerals. These minerals help in relieving muscle pains and soreness. Their healing qualities detoxify, feed the nervous system and have effective antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
If you don’t enjoy getting wet, fear not, just breathing the sea air (charged with negative ions) will accelerate your ability to absorb oxygen and balance levels of serotonin which in turn will improve mood, reduce stress and will help you to sleep more soundly. As we step into spring there has never been a better time to pack away the winter woollies and jump in the big blue sea.
