Talk Circles: Meet Karen Wrigley
Karen Wrigley believes that the Mind - Body - Spirit combination
is wonderful for today's overly busy, stressed out folk.
Karen has been combining her experience as a licensed psychotherapist
and massage therapist for over 20 years now, and hopes to show others how
important it is, to acknowledge this reciprocal relationship of how our
body affects our mind and our mind affects our body.
When we receive a massage, it gives us endorphins, relieves pain, promotes
feelings of well being, and reduces anxiety.
Conversely, when our lives becomes chaotic and overly stressful,
our immune system becomes inhibited, our bloodpressure rises. We then have
reduced pain fighting mechanisms, blood flow is reduced to our muscles, our
digestion becomes sluggish and ultimately, we can get physically sick
through an emotionally overloaded life.
Karen believes that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure . . .
and that when life gives you lemons, that we should learn how to make lemonade."
This group experience that she is beginning to offer, is her attempt to a
equip others to deal with the many stresses, challenges and expectations
that we all encounter in our roles as parents, partners, employees, co-workers
