Measuring the effectiveness of the intervention (using WHO-5 Wellbeing index)

At Wellness Space, we make an attempt to quantify the effect of the intervention. One such example is the use of WHO-5 Wellbeing Index (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25831962), a commonly used and simple tool. Our data (of 11 individuals who completed 4 sessions and also completed the WHO-5 survey before the first and after the fourth session) is captured in the visual. Score below 52% shows "poor wellbeing" (ideally requiring an evaluation for depression). The average score moved up from 32% (Before) to 63% (After) showing significant enhancement in the individuals' wellbeing. In 10 out of 11 individuals the score went up (the

Managing Insomnia using a combination of Singing Bowls, Chanting & Breathing Techniques

Sleep Disorder or Insomnia: This is a very common problem of the modern world.  Constant thinking and anxiety, coupled with the use of modern gadgets and 24x7 lifestyle, our ability to slow down and unwind at the night is often impacted.  The studies have shown correlation between chronic stress, disrupted sleep (e.g. call centre workers who work at night) and imbalance in key hormones (e.g. cortisol and melatonin levels) resulting in sleep impairment.  Sleep is an important aspect of our autonomic nervous system recovery and must not be compromised.
