Ahhhhh… now take a big exhale. You’ve made it to our relaxation page. At The Zensory, we are big believers in the importance of relaxation. Why? Because a peaceful mind is a happy mind. There is a correlation between being in a relaxed mood state and high-level performance. Not only that but you will find that a relaxed mind will help you be far more productive.
At The Zensory we recognise a growing problem. The problem of more and more of us living life on a treadmill, never taking a second to breathe and relax. At The Zensory, we strive to create solutions to your problems. So… we have been working with leading neuroscientists, technologists and composers to really break down how you can tap into our senses to achieve your desired mood states.
“The Zensory soundscapes are terrific. A great way to naturally clear your mind and help focus. I used this as the background for my daily meditation and saw a marked difference.”
Sarah Davies, Marketing Executive
“I have been to zoom meetings back to back without a moment to breathe. Just being able to zone out, doodle, listen to the decompression soundscapes and have some time to myself was the perfect remedy to help me unwind after hours of meetings”
Paula Richie, Chief Marketing Officer
Scents for Relaxation

Studies show that the strength of different smells significantly change our resting-state and the connectivity between several brain regions which result in influencing our mood states and improving our memory (Carlson et al., 2020).

We have created a library of soundscapes
including a medley of naturescapes from around the world (tropical rainforests, beaches, forests, waterfalls, rain - the list is endless). Designed to transport you into a deep flow state, these nature sounds have been mixed with binaural beats. Binaural beats are scientifically proven to promote a shift to your ideal state, whether that be relaxation, creativity or focus.

Conscious breathing allows you to shift and release negative energy by manipulating the nervous systems fight or flight reflex.
Doing so allows for deep relaxation and a release in muscle tension enabling you to recharge, refocus and smash your targets for the day! Below is a breathing technique for relaxation…
How? Inhale through your nose, then as you exhale, make a humming or buzzing sound (like a bumblebee) through closed lips. The humming will last as long as your exhale lasts; when you need to inhale again, inhale silently through your nose, then continue humming again as you exhale.
