Self guided relaxation may sometimes be difficult because we often become easily distracted and sidetracked. Guided relaxation can be a wonderful solution because your relaxation experience is led by a guide. Allow Joanne D'amico's gentle guidance and calming voice help you remain focused on easing tension from your body and quieting your mind.
Description of the relaxation techniques featured in this CD Album:
Calming Breath: This exercise begins with simply observing the flow of the breath. It then gently moves into slow deeper breathing. The deep breathing is very gentle and very calming. This exercise is accompanied by a lovely piece of music composed by Kevin Macleod which enhances this relaxation technique.
Progressive Muscle Relaxation: This is a muscle relaxation exercise that involves gently tensing and releasing the various muscles of the body in a sequential way. Research shows that physical relaxation is always accompanied by mental calmness. This is a wonderful relaxation technique that allows you to enter a very deep state of relaxation.
Guided Imagery: Guided imagery works on the premise that the body and mind are connected. When the imagination is guided through suggestions towards a relaxed state, the body and mind respond as though what you are imagining is real. This can help shift a stressed mood to one of peace and calm. This particular exercise will guide you through a beautiful secluded forest. The recording is also accompanied by forest sounds and soothing music composed by Kevin Macleod that will help enhance your imagination and relaxation experience.
Meditation: The exercise featured on this album is a meditation on gratitude. Feeling grateful on a regular basis can help cultivate feelings of happiness and appreciation. Despite any challenges you may be experiencing, taking time to notice what you are grateful for can help foster a positive outlook. It is impossible to feel stressed and fearful when we feel grateful.
Joanne D'Amico's soothing voice will guide you through these relaxation techniques while the beautiful music of composer Kevin Macleod will provide a peaceful backdrop that will help enhance your relaxation experience.

Here is what one of Joanne's clients had to say about her relaxation audios:
“I was excited to learn that Joanne has undertaken the challenge to produce some relaxation recordings. Her caring, pleasant voice is a perfect complement with the background sounds such as the forest and ocean. She really takes you to these places and it produces a profound relaxation. My 10 year old daughter also loves to listen to them as she drifts off at the end of the day (I don’t think she has been able to get to the end yet without drifting off). Keep them coming!”
