What is Lake Superior Therapy
Lake Superior Therapy is the utilization of the healing powers of the largest freshwater lake in the world. The natural freshwater of Lake Superior relieves stress, soothes aching muscles, and clears your mind. The lake, the indigenous habitants of Northern Ontario name Gitchee Gumme, is believed to have healing powers for centuries. The sheer power of the Lake Superior waves has capsized ships, reshaped landscapes and provides sanctity to thousand who benefit from the lake. Your worries are nothing for this lake to overcome. It is a force within itself.
Lake Superior has claimed many lives but has given strength to countless more. The healing powers come from the sound of the crashing waves, the warm beaches or the uninterrupted views. There is a healing power that will help you escape the stress that weighs on your soul. This is Lake Superior Therapy.
Studies have shown that the soothing sounds of birds or the running of water provides relaxation for the body. Meditation and Yoga studios will have nature and water sounds playing in the background. The sound of nature provides your body with a relaxation mechanism that triggers your brain to go to that place you hear on the audio. This is why Lake Superior Therapy is so effective. Meditation and Yoga classes cost of hundreds or sometimes thousands of dollars, sitting on the shores of Lake Superior is free.
The Tranquility of Lake Superior Therapy
Are you ready to go on a Northern Ontario adventure?
Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Let your imagination soar.
Picture yourself standing on a rock rising 10 feet above Lake Superior. The air is silent, all you can hear is the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below. The blue water stretches far beyond what the eyes can see. As the waves crash against the rocks, water sprays above your head. It comes from nowhere but it doesn’t scare you. You don’t blink, you get lost in the white and blue wall. As the mist from the Lake Superior waves overtakes your body, the stress begins to melt away. The stress of work, of family, of friends and of home disappears as fast as the next crash comes. This is Lake Superior Therapy.
Lake Superior has infinite healing powers. People pay thousands of dollars for Hot Stone Massages. A Hot Stone Massage is the placement of warm smooth rocks along pressure points in the back that releases tension. The warm feeling of the rocks immediately releases stress from the body. The rocks trigger points of pressure so that the tension eases, the stress melts and the frustration subsides.
Why pay hundreds or even thousands for a Hot Stone Massage when the rocky beach in Agawa Bay Campground in Lake Superior Provincial Park provides the same life easing benefits. The beach in Agawa Bay Provincial Park stretches for miles and consists of smooth rocks. Rocks that have had the powerful waters of Lake Superior crash on them for thousands of years. As the heat from the rocks releases the stress from the body, the only explanation is Lake Superior Therapy.
The Tropical Paradise of Northern Ontario
The Caribbean is known for their fine white sand beaches, for their mist from the ocean that surrounds, and for their ease of life that stress is an impossible thought. The beaches provide a stress relieving method as all cares fall by the way side. The Caribbean doesn’t compare to the tropical paradise that is Northern Ontario.
The same can be said about the beach at Pancake Bay Provincial Park.
Pancake Bay has a sand beach that stretches as far as the eye can see. Even on the clearest of days, a person with the strongest eyes must squint to have any hopes of seeing the other end. As your toes dig into the sand, your eyes close and a gentle breeze off Gitchee Gumme surrounds you. Time stops. You could be on a remote tropical island, a Caribbean paradise but you are not there, you are in Northern Ontario. You are under the spell of Lake Superior Therapy.
Are you ready for another Northern Ontario adventure?
Close your eyes as you are taken to the warm sandy because on the shores of Lake Superior. A warm breeze rises from the waters of Pancake Bay. Your feet dig into the beach further, the sand separates your toes. As your body releases tension from the warm sand, you stand up and begin to run towards the water. As you enter Lake Superior, the water splashes beside you each time your foot penetrates the water. The water is cool, Lake Superior is always cool, but it has no effect on you. You take your sixth step then jump forward, your hands joining outstretched above your head, and Lake Superior swallows you whole. You succumb to the cool waters of Lake Superior. Your body no longer aches underwater, headaches are gone, tensions relapses and your worries are no longer. The therapy solves all of life’s problems.
