The Mail on Sunday - You - - Beauty Know How -

I re­cently had a mad week of late nights, early starts and rush­ing around. I was ex­hausted, but I’d heard that a crys­tal sound bath could help. This is where a ‘sound spe­cial­ist’ plays a series of quartz crys­tal bowls – hit­ting them gen­tly with a mal­let or run­ning a wand around the rim – un­til the sound reaches 528 mega­hertz. It sounds odd, but the fre­quency af­fects your brain­waves, pro­mot­ing calm. It’s a great al­ter­na­tive to med­i­tat­ing as the vol­ume blocks out the white noise in your head. My 45-minute ses­sion be­gan with a guided med­i­ta­tion and then the bowls got louder un­til I al­most started to vi­brate. It was quite over­whelm­ing, but I felt a to­tal re­lease of stress, and was left look­ing as though I’d had a facelift. crys­tal­sound­lounge.com. By day I wear this with a straw hat. In the evening, I turn it round and tie a belt through the arm holes, fas­ten­ing it at my waist. Sud­denly it’s a dress! Around £75, pi­tusa.co.
