Fortunately, our local community of experts know how to provide individualized holistic care and mental health support, no matter where you are on your wellness journey. Whether you’re looking to incorporate more movement, connect with nature, or relax with a massage in Cochrane, we’ve got a plethora of wellness techniques to help you unwind.
Here are 3 ideas to add to your self care plan so you can show up as your best self.
1. Explore Maliya Wellness Centre for Women
Mental and physical wellness is not like Fight Club—we can, and should, talk about it!
Your highly customized experience at Maliya Wellness Centre for Women starts by booking your one-on-one appointment with a wellness practitioner, or a 30-minute consultation with your personal Wellness Specialist. The specialist acts as your guide to help you determine which practitioners and offerings will provide you with the right care on your wellness journey.
Maliya aims to bridge the gap between eastern and western medicine by offering a wide range of treatments. You’ll find your new favourite relaxing experience through acupuncture or massage in Cochrane, or you can explore energetic shifts through craniosacral therapy, reiki, yoga, and more to help improve overall health and happiness.
2. Peruse the plants at Anything Grows
Pot it like it’s hot and cultivate your green thumb self care plan year-round at Anything Grows! Incorporating more nature into your life like plants and trees are proven to provide mental health support through reduced stress and strengthened memory. Whether you’re a gardening expert or just want to spruce up your space with some green, the shop has everything you need to say hello to your new soil mate.
Finding the perfect plants, perennials, shrubs, and trees that can thrive in Alberta’s planting zones will save you a lot of effort. Pair them with the right pot, planter, or basket, and give your furry and feathered friends the gift of a feeder or bird bath so they can enjoy your flora, too. Don’t forget to pick up unique indoor decor to wow your guests at your next dinner party—it’s mint to be!
