"Anxiety can be a debilitating and frightening condition. It can interfere with your everyday life and leave you feeling trapped, overwhelmed and fearful. ."
What is anxiety?
Anxiety is a feeling of unease and can be a debilitating and sometimes frightening condition.
Everybody experiences it when faced with a stressful situation, for example before an exam or an interview, or during a worrying time such as illness. It is normal to feel anxious when facing something difficult or dangerous, and mild anxiety can be a positive and useful experience.
However, for one in ten people in the UK, anxiety interferes with normal life. Excessive anxiety is often associated with other psychiatric conditions, such as depression.
"I have been using the MindSpa for only a dew days and have benefited already.
THANK YOU. I have been struggling with anxiety and stress for a year and I'm delighted how relaxed and calm I feel after just a few days of using the MindSpa. I feel so good! Which is wonderful.

Symptoms of anxiety
The physical symptoms of anxiety are caused by the brain sending messages to parts of the body to prepare for the "fight or flight" response. The heart, lungs and other parts of the body work faster. The brain also releases stress hormones, including adrenaline. The following symptoms can occur as a result:
- abdominal discomfort
- dry mouth
- rapid heartbeat or palpitations
- tightness or pain in chest
- shortness of breath
- irritability or anger
- inability to concentrate
- fear of madness
"I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for several years and my MindSpa has been a great help to me.
I feel relaxed and calm whilst using my MindSpa. I am definitely more laid back about life. I find myself reacting less to events. More chilled I guess.
I would recommend a MindSpa to anyone suffering from anxiety."

How much better would you feel if you could reduce anxiety, panic attacks and stress by using the natural power of your mind ?
Spending some time each day in deep relaxation or meditation cultivates a calmness that eases anxious feelings and offers a sense of control. A study at the University of Massachusetts found that volunteers who took an eight-week meditation course were considerably less anxious afterward. People who are highly-strung find that they are dramatically calmer if they meditate for 15 or 20 minutes in the morning or evening.
Regular meditation has the following benefits :
- You feel less anxious

Using a Meditation Machine to reduce and manage anxiety
Simply sit or lay down in a comfortable position, put on the headphones and light-stimulation glasses and select a relaxation or meditation programme .
After a few seconds, you'll hear soothing pulses through the headphones and at the same time, through your closed eyelids, you'll see the softly flickering lights produced by the glasses. The sounds and the lights start to slow down in synchrony and, without any effort, your mind and body will automatically start to slow down and relax. Your mental activity will decrease in a natural way leading to a feeling of being at ease with the world. Your feelings of anxiety will reduce and at the end of the session you’ll feel mentally refreshed, calmer, more relaxed and have a greater sense of well-being.
With regular use of your Meditation Machine, your general state of mind will improve and you’ll find that you’ll feel less anxious about issues that previously caused you stress. The calmness and tranquility that using your Meditation Machine brings will give you greater emotional stability and the ability to handle stressful situations in a controlled way.
"I purchased my MindSpa to alleviate anxiety and undo the damage caused by stress.
I find it wonderfully relaxing both during and after use. I'm now getting better at noticing when negative thoughts and physical tension arise during the day and I'm able to relax to prevent myself becoming anxious."
