Sometimes the hustle and bustle of daily life can catch up with us. When it comes to settling down in the evenings, despite the body’s desire for rest, the mind may continue to race with thoughts accumulated throughout the day. We can become easily overwhelmed and distracted without relaxation to give us moments of peace in between life’s demands. In today’s fast-paced world, it can be difficult to gift yourself with time to restore the mind. However, with natural, simple relaxation techniques, prioritising time to unwind can become second nature.
Discover ESPA’s 6 relaxation techniques to soothe the body and mind.
Relaxing herbal tea
The first relaxation technique is the aromatic pleasure that comes from a warm herbal tea. The delicate blend of herbs, spices and fruits is a caffeine-free way to satisfy the taste buds and senses, instantly lulling the mind. A relaxing herbal tea is also a calming alternative to the stimulating cups of coffee that may no longer be necessary once the afternoon passes.
Try a relaxing massage
Whether it is in a spa or at home, a relaxing massage is another natural technique that can restore the body and mind. Gently rub away areas of tension with a light pressure combined with a Restorative Bath and Body Oil. Designed to re-balance the mind and thoughts, this oil can be used as a calming massage oil or applied to pulse points, allowing the essential oils to help promote a sense of comfort and stillness to the mind while soothing the body.
What’s more, while treating yourself to a relaxing massage, you can also nourish the skin. Our formula features a rich melange of Avocado, Sweet Almond, and Soybean Oils to support the natural moisture barrier, leaving the skin soft and supple. Featuring Omegas 6 and 9, these botanical lipids coat the skin and nourish the body.
