how to help our teens, part 1

For your growing teens, both male and female, the process of puberty can be quite a tricky time. With all of the hormonal levels changing, your young teen will be moody, uncomfortable and not easy to talk with. Additionally, the level of growing stress with transitioning to high school, academic pressures, and social comparisons can set a foundation for anxiety, depression, panic attacks, disordered eating, and sleep issues.

In this Part 1 of helping our teens, we’re talking about something a bit alternative, but effective. When talking is not an option, we try to take different routes to provide treatment and healing for our teens. Yoga, meditation, mindfulness are all powerful tools to help our teens develop more emotional awareness and control. Additionally, using these practices to build confidence, focus, and resiliency.

Building on that, the use of aromatherapy has also been proven as highly effective. In a recent study by the National Institute of Health, research showed that “aromatherapy showed potential to be used as an effective therapeutic option for the relief of depressive symptoms in a wide variety of subjects”.

At reset brain + body, we have team experts on the use of essential oils to meet your teen’s needs - from calm, focus, mood boost, sleep, even hormonal disturbances. Our yoga therapy, psychotherapy and yoga classes all incorporate the mindful use of aroma to help elevate the experience.

When talking is a challenge, we come in with alternative ways to generate positive outcomes.
