When it comes to wellness, there is no right or wrong way to heal oneself. Traditional therapy is very useful and a trained professional is definitely someone worth seeking out when certain issues are just too big to handle alone.

Floatation has certainly made its rounds and its effectiveness has raised many eyebrows but the scientific research backs it up well.

The power of salt isn’t just limited to the kitchen. In the 1800s, a researcher observed that men who worked in the salt mine for years tended to look younger and suffered fewer respiratory diseases. He discovered that by inhaling salt particles, it draws water into the airways and thins the mucus, which helps people feel better quickly. Thus, halotherapy was born and Pablo Bleu has replicated a similar but much more controlled, relaxing environment for those in Singapore to reap its benefits.

Sound therapy works by using sonic vibrations from various instruments like metal bowls, crystal bowls or gongs to create a sound that slows our brain waves and initiates deep sleep where true healing can begin. The relaxing sound bath at Jyan Yoga uses Tibetan bowls during the class as a form of meditation that aims to reduce stress and anxiety, making you feel rejuvenated after the session and ready for bed.
