8 Tips Why Belly Dancing is Great for your Health by “Dr. Gorjis”

Belly Dancing is an Ancient Art Form and Dance Practice beginning centuries and many moons ago. How I came into Belly Dancing is from my clients. I started doing makeup for Belly Dancers and began learning more about what they do. Soon thereafter, I began massaging in my Spa, a lot of Men Doctors that are surgeons; and were doing Belly Dancing to protect and support their spine from long hours of surgery. I began to ask the question, why am I not doing this? I’m a massage therapist and I use by body greatly. This will be a great way to strengthen and support my body in addition to Yoga. The first time I tried it, I fell in Love with it. The rest is history. I like to share…

Client question, why is it difficult losing weight?

Speaking of [Beauty, Health & Wellness]: Inspiration is all around us!
Emailed Client Question that I like to share: [Great read]

One of my clients asked me after attending a women’s conference:
“I was at an event out-of-town and there were over 2,000 women there, and “the hot topic”, a large number of them suffering from not being able to lose weight. I could not believe how many were clearly suffering for this, why is that?”

Respectfully & with great intention here is my response: There are a myriad of health factors, (genetics, immune function, environment, gene expression, etc.), to consider and health reasons why some people are challenged with being overweight, but I will mention a few. Firsthand, when the body is overweight it is an inflammatory response of the body that something is out-of-order.

Here’s a few eye-opening reasons:
#1 Inflammation,
Hormonal imbalances,
High saturated fatty diet,
Lack of physical exercise,
Lack of self-care & nourishment,
Loss sense of your center,
Stress hormone cortisol, (causes fat around the belly),
Metabolic syndrome X,
Too much darn life stress.

Are just a few reasons why the inches will not move away
Why diets don’t work!
Are you listening? Do you suffering from any of these?

She was blown away: After I just hinted a few (of many) reasons, her response was okay,… “Create a Webinar” with solutions to this issue.  I said, you are right and you just inspired me to create it!

Look out for the details of my August “Beauty, Health & Wellness” Webinar, about cortisol & managed stress, how to stay healthy, in my next post. Inspiration is all around us all the time, so be inspired to change the world!
