MILTON KEYNES, England, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ —

New Milton Keynes business promotes role of regular meditation and massage in increasing individual wellbeing, business performance and economic growth.

Up to 90% of all illness is stress related. Inspired by this shocking statistic, Reiki With Ria, a holistic therapy practice based at Bletchley Park, Milton Keynes, is on a much overdue mission to change the way we think about our health and to place wellbeing at the heart of our daily lives. Bolstered by the government’s recent commitment to engage people for success in the working world while increasing wellbeing, Reiki With Ria is now expanding to provide wellbeing solutions for business.

Ria, the founder of the company explains: ‘The business was set up to help people improve the quality of their lives, by offering relaxation practices that have been scientifically proven to both counteract the negative effects of the stress response and to enhance physical and psychological health. To begin with, we sought to empower individuals: encouraging ownership of one’s own health and re-establishing it as a priority at all times – not just during times of ill health, is essential. Now, we feel it is time for a two-tiered approach, whereby businesses make a commitment to encourage and enhance their staff’s wellbeing recognising the correlation between employee wellbeing and increased profitability’.

Reiki With Ria offers Reiki, Massage Therapy, Stress Reduction and Meditation. Massage therapy, has for a long time been a firm favourite with the public, ‘people often perceive massage as a luxury- it can be, however this widely held belief restricts people from utilising the full extent of its health enhancing abilities’.

Meditation has gained much popularity of late, but as Ria points out, ‘many people have misconceptions about what meditation actually is. We believe that everybody can, and should, meditate and we always seek to demystify, simplify and make the practice relevant to ordinary people with ordinary concerns’.

If recent research is anything to go by, the case for developing a regular meditation practice is compelling. Benefits of meditation include stress reduction, pain management, improvement of immune function, regulation of emotion, improvements of focus and memory and anti ageing properties. For businesses and individuals it seems the research is clear – ‘Let’s all meditate’.

Reiki With Ria offers high quality massage and reiki treatments from their base at BletchleyPark. They hold regular meditation workshops and courses for complete beginners and more experienced mediators. From August 1(st) 2013 they will officially open their Wellness @ Work division,offering on-site massage,meditation instruction and support in developing workplace wellbeing programs.
