Track 1- Introduction
Track 2 - Progressive Muscle Relaxation : Taking time to bring awareness to all areas of the body can help release muscular tension and so ease stress and physical discomfort. It can also help the body calm down, unwind and rest which can be helpful if you are very tired or finding it difficult to sleep.
Track 3 - Guided Journey to the Sea: Guided imagery uses your creative imagination to help ease anxiety, stress and physical discomfort. This guided journey will encourage you to use all your senses, not just visual images, to help create a safe and unique experience to help you heal, relax and improve your sense of wellbeing
Track 4 - White Light Relaxation: This guided imagery focuses on white light moving through your body to help ease, calm and balance your mind and body. The white light can help clear your energy leaving you feeling refreshed and relaxed.
Track 5 - Breath exercise: In this breath exercise we focus on the journey of the breath as it enters and leaves your body. The breath is a great way to bring your attention to your body and away from distracting thoughts, so helping to bring you to a calmer state, alleviate anxiety and balance your emotions.
