The lifestyle we’re used to nowadays is way too dangerous for our health. We work more, eat less and sleep even lesser. This kind of schedule, though we don’t feel it instantly, keeps piling up a layer of stress over another and as the burden keeps getting heavier and heavier, one day it all bursts out together and leaves us damaged, not physically but mentally. To avoid such a situation, we may start doing meditation and Yoga is quite on a roll nowadays with everybody joining the initiative. But for a person who rarely finds an opportunity to watch his favourite TV show, it’d be asking too much of him to take out time for practicing meditation. We need something that can fit in his schedule, something that can adapt as per the requirements of each and every person. That’s how the conept of “The Relaxation Experience” was conceived!


I’m talking about the latest iOS app called The Relaxation Experience that has been developed by Joseph Gill. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The Relaxation Experience is a combination of visuals and sounds and they’re combined under the expert supervision to guide you to the path of ease. When you first open the app, you can see five different exercises named as Progressive Relaxation, Descending Relaxation, Returning Home, The Relaxation Journey and Serenity. However, only the first exercise is open for your access and the rest are locked. You can unlock them separately via in-app purchases or buy them all together. But first of all, what is this exercise?


An exercise, unlike the title makes you think of, isn’t a physical workout, but a mental therapy. Each such exercise consists of stunning landscape visuals and other natural imagery combined with soothing sounds. These sounds are motivated from nature and are designed to un-tangle the nerves of your brain that are lying dead under the enormous pressure of your routine. The visuals are stunning, beautiful and engaging and they need to be so. The app is designed for “mobile” purposes. So you don’t necessarily need to stay enclosed in your four-walled house but you can use this app on a journey, while returning home from your office or anywhere else. So the graphics help you concentrate your attention which otherwise would be distracted by the surrounding sounds.

It’s no doubt that this app has been designed to perfection. You’d wait for the moment when you turn it on and immerse yourself deep down the pool of melody and peace.

The app is available for $2.99 in the App Store. Each new exercise costs you $1.99 or you can buy them all for $7.99. So what are you waiting for?

Pros: soothing sounds; compelling visuals; use app anywhere on-the-go; beautifully designed.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
