Relaxation therapy is a scientific, clinically proven method to reduce anxiety without drugs by stimulating your body's own built-in stress-fighting biochemistry.

The scientific relaxation method was developed in the 1920s by Dr Edmund Jacobson at Harvard University. Since then, it has been used by countless hospitals and health clinics all over the world to give people relief from the sickening epidemic of stress.

The relaxation centre in Halifax was designed by Colin Stone, an internationally accredited Professional Relaxation Therapist with an intricate understanding of the science of stress and relaxation. In a private setting, you'll be gently soothed into a state of calm and tranquility. A projection system fills the “night sky” with stars and northern lights, while soothing music eases your mind. You'll breathe purified air with a hint of Japanese aromatherapy. Colin's voice will guide you as you let go of tension, and use your deeply-relaxed state to make powerful life changes.

This touchless therapy is perfect for busy people on the go. You stay fully clothed and a session takes as little as 15 minutes. It's neuroscience, not pseudoscience. Relaxation therapy is so effective for relieving stress that you'll feel incredible results on your very first session! Learn more about how relaxation therapy works and how it relieves your stress.

Relaxation therapy is powerful, scientific stress relief

“Retained stress shows up in our body as physical disease.”

Emmett E. Miller, M.D.

Is stress making you sick?

Our bodies are amazingly made to respond to stressful situations. Increased blood pressure, heart rate and muscle tension can help us react quickly in a life-threatening situation such as jumping out of the way of a falling tree. But most of the things that cause us stress these days are not life-threatening. What gives you stress? Work deadlines? Being cut off in traffic? Money worries? Waiting in a slow-moving line at the supermarket? Uncontrolled stress can affect your memory, emotions and physical well-being. When stress builds up over the long term it can literally make you sick!

The good news is that the harmful effects of stress can be reversed.

Scientific relaxation therapy can empower you to conquer stress and all of its ugly effects. It triggers your body's parasympathetic nervous system (sometimes called the relaxation response) to make you feel wonderfully relaxed. There are no special skills that you need or anything to learn. Some people even fall asleep while lying on the therapy table, letting the effects of the purified air, aroma and vibroacoustic sound therapy work on them while they sleep peacefully for a few minutes.
