Meditation Classes in Horsham helps us reach our potential to be the best version of ourself possible helping to reduce stress such as anxiety and depression as it aids in secretion of natural feel good hormones.
Endorphins are produced by the central nervous system to help us deal with physical pain
Serotonin regulates mood, social behavior, appetite, digestion, sleep, memory. It calms the nervous system and relaxes muscles to increase resilience to improve body and brain health.
Dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter—a chemical released by nerve cells to send signals to other nerve cells. The brain includes several distinct dopamine pathways, one of which plays a major role in the motivational component of reward-motivated behaviour
Oxytocin acts as a chemical messenger and has been shown to be important in human behaviours including sexual arousal, recognition, trust, anxiety and mother/infant bonding. As a result, oxytocin has been called the ‘love hormone’ or ‘cuddle chemical’.
