WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
The basic aim of mindfulness is to develop an awareness and non-judgmental acceptance of the present moment; to live in the now rather that worry obsessively about the past or future. The mindful meditation practice not only helps reduce depression and anxiety but also re-balances the mind and body.
Beginning with a mindful stance intensifies a typical spa experience, which is why we are now offering wellness specific treatments including, Inner Calm Massages and Mindful Massages to escape the stressful pace of everyday life and renew your mind and body's positivity.
At the Spa at the Grand we are now offering wellness specific treatment Inner Calm Massage and Mindful Massage to unwind a busy mind and escape the pace of everyday life to renew your positivity.

DID YOU KNOW?
Love makes you look younger
The endorphins released by being in love increase blood flow to the skin, keeping it soft and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Also because stress levels are lower, there is less cortisol in the body - high levels cause stress-related acne, pimples and breakouts. So bring out your romantic side as the nights draw and you will not only feel happier but look younger!
You can exercise away tension
When your body feels stressed it floods your brain with adrenaline and cortisol the fight or flight hormones. Exercise uses these hormones positively and eases muscle tension.
Singing can help brain fog
Brain fog disengages the prefrontal cortex, making it harder to think rationally. Meditation doesn’t come easily to everyone so another technique is to distract your brain. You can train your attention like a muscle. Try focusing on the lyrics of your favourite song to take your mind off things.
Breathing techniques can calm your nerves
When you feel nervous, you may feel a tightening in your chest.This is adrenaline raises your blood pressure.To reset your adrenaline levels focus on your breathing for a minute or so every two hours. This technique is often used by Team GB athletes before an event to help them relax and go for gold!
