SOME people like to unwind with a nice, long bubble bath. Others prefer a sound bath.

Older folk in Moray are now being invited to experience the meditation method for free this week.

The session is taking place at Hanover Housing in Elgin this Wednesday afternoon.

Facilitator Jen Law said: "Thoughts of our past and worries for our future create a very busy mind. Sound therapy helps us to be present in the moment, to listen to the beautiful relaxing sounds and feel the vibrations of the minute we are in.

"It’s like experiencing a magical bubble of altered reality and escaping the world outside even for just a short while. We all need to make time to just stop, relax and just BE.”

The free sound bath session is part of First Time for Everything, a programme designed by Royal Voluntary Service and Prudential to give older people in the Moray area an opportunity to try something new for free in their local community.

All equipment will be provided on the day. It is worth noting however that this session is unsuitable for people who have had a pacemakers fitted.

Light refreshments will be served and there will also be an opportunity to hear about other local Royal Voluntary Service activities.

The session takes place at 2pm at Hannovoer Housing, Linkwood View, Thornhill Drive, Elgin, IV30 6GQ.

To book a place contact Ian Menzies, Royal Voluntary Service Activity co-ordinator on 07342 052420 or email ian.menzies@royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk.
