Defend Against Stress
Combining meditation and ancient Chinese rituals to help keep the mind and body relaxed in a ever busy modern world, Hayou have created quick and easy one minute breathing rituals that can be incorporated into your everyday routine.
Team the use of the Hayou Mineral Shower Wash with ‘The Rescue Bath Ritual’. An active mediation of the Rescue Breath, it’s an instant way to defend your body against stress.
Start by breathing in through the nose and out of the mouth three times. This actively clears the stagnation that accumulates overnight and during stressful periods.
Slowly take five deep breaths. On each exhale, allow your mental energy to descend through the centre of the body, leaving you calm, centred and relaxed. Whilst exhaling, direct a smile into the lower abdomen. This helps to send positive metal signals to the energetic centre of the body.
Hayo’u Shower Ritual
Chinese Medicine believes that mind and body are connected. A simple shower, if practised correctly, provides the perfect opportunity to de-stress the body in a profound way.
The morning shower gives you time to breathe and set yourself up for the day. Feel sluggish in the morning? On waking, we are stagnant from sleep. In Chinese Medicine stagnation is bad – you need to get the circulation moving as soon as possible.
There is an alchemy between water, air and ingredients that can have a powerful effect on the body. Water constitutes 70% of all living organisms. Firstly, combine the dynamic of running water with our anti-inflammatory ingredients - then use the deep breathing technique of the Rescue Breath Ritual to inhale the essential oils of Hayo’u Mineral Wash into the bloodstream. For example, when inhaled, Frankincense has been shown to reduce heart rate and high blood pressure.
