Other things to note
HIVE ROOM FOR REST or SLEEPING
Our Hive ROOM is based on a popular form of apitherapy (no stinging involved!) from the Ukraine. The emotional, psychological, and physical stresses of modern, fast paced life are all said to be countered by the unique healing effects of bees. Restful sleep in a space over bee hives may have powerful preventative and healing effects and at the very least allows for deep rest and rejuvenation.
Many factors seem to be at play in creating these beneficial effects. A person in such a space inhales the air coming from the bee colonies which is filled with the aromas of honey, beeswax, propolis, and Royal Jelly. Properties of these substances range from antimicrobial and stimulating to ionizing, and are credited with improving pulmonary function, enhancing the body’s immunity, and improving blood composition. These are just some of the noted benefits. Additional factors involved are the micro vibrations and regulated temperature coming from the hive colonies as a whole. And lastly, the steady buzzing sound of the bees is comparable to the sound of the soothing and relaxing tide,.
So just how does one enjoy the Hive House? While a short stay sitting in a comfortable chair, enjoying the sound and aromas coming from the hives is certainly relaxing and beneficial, it is with sleep that the most powerful effects can be had.
Very few of these apitherapy houses seem to exist outside of the Ukraine, this one one is probably the only one in Italy. There is one that we know of in Canada but we cannot currently find record of any in the United States. But we'd love to hear from you if you know of one. Curiosity, after learning of their existence at a Michigan Bee Conference from Anne Marie Fauvel and Therese McCarthy, and a love of bees propelled us on this journey. Our plan is to thoroughly enjoy this new adventure that allows us to delve further into the world of bees and vibrant health. Family and friends may join us along the way and we welcome them, hoping that their lives will be bettered by it. We look forward to sharing our experiences with you here!
