It absolutely works!,
This review is from: Total Relaxation (Audio CD)
I have tried various relaxation techniques and found them all to be a bit silly and not very useful. This one really works! I have been really stressed recently and at times find it difficult to sleep as my mind is buzzing with all the things that have happened through the day. This CD really helps me clear my mind and drift off.
The meditations consist of background music and sound effects and a calming voice which talks you through some sort of relaxing scenario. It starts of with breathing and relaxing and then she leads you on a little journey in your mind. Each track is about 20 minutes long.
Track one is set around a desert Oasis, it's my least favourite track as the lead up to the actual relaxation takes quite a long time. I don't find it especially relaxing though it still works, I end up asleep half way through.
Track two is a journey through a valley to a secluded woodland where there is a wood cabin and a fire. It's very calming and peaceful and very easy to imagine.
Track 3 is a walk around a secret garden, she describes various parts of the garden and leaves it up to your imagination to creat the image. There is a relaxing stage in a hammock which is just perfect. You can try most of this track online for free at their website which would give you a really good idea if this would work for you.
I have bought another of the CDs in the range and can't wait to try it out. Nothing has ever worked like this for me. It helps me sleep and instantly relaxes if I do it through the day as well. Just perfect!
