Finding time for yourself can be a challenge but if you can make a date with yourself regularly and with commitment it does pay off.
Spa Director Lina Lotto, shares her four ideas ranging from 5 minute hacks to a whole day of pampering.
Enjoying 5 minutes of restful darkness does wonders for strained eyes and a tense body. It’s simple to do and perfect anytime but especially after a session on the computer as it relaxes tired eyes and generally relieves tension. If you suffer from dry eyes this may also help. Do it for 5 minutes anytime you’re reminded.
- Sit comfortably in a chair with a straight but relaxed back. Your back, neck and head aligned
- If your hands are cold, rub them to warm them up
- Cover your face with warm, relaxed hands to exclude all light
- Close your eyes
- Take a deep, gentle breath
- Enjoy the restful darkness for 5 minutes
A Sensory Experience
We’re fortunate to have an Alphasphere Deluxe here at SenSpa. I first came across this unique, calming treatment a few years ago and immediately booked a flight to Vienna to experience it for myself and to meet its creator, Austrian artist Sha. It uses sound, vibration, light and colour to take you into a deeply relaxed state between consciousness and sleep. Each programme lasts for 25 minutes. You can also experience it with a friend or partner. It lowers heart rate, blood pressure and evokes a sense of wellbeing and calm so a perfect antidote.
£25 per person or £40 for two.
