Genesys presents relaxation techniques for seniors

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Did you know people in pain are more tense, which increases pain and leads to more tenseness?
Relaxation techniques can counteract pain, lower blood pressure and heart rate, and produce a greater sense of wellbeing.

When practiced regularly, relaxation techniques can strengthen the body's immune system, help control blood pressure, improve the body's ability to manage glucose, reduce stress and reduce pain.

Genesys Athletic Club presents a Lunch and Learn demonstration Tuesday, April 23 at noon.

Seniors will have an opportunity to practice simple and easy relaxation techniques to manage stress and tension. These techniques also will help those who have trouble falling asleep at night.

Ruth Anne Harmes, a senior population expert at Genesys Athletic Club, will conduct the hands on demonstration.

Cost of the Lunch and Learn is $15 and includes lunch.

For more information, call Genesys Athletic Club at 810-606-7509.

Genesys Athletic Club offers Lunch and Learn for seniors twice a month on a variety of topics to help seniors live a healthy and productive lifestyle.

Genesys Athletic Club is located on the Genesys Regional Medical Center - Health Park campus in Grand Blanc Township.
