Ease your mind
The sound of the ocean has a measurable effect on your mental wellbeing, helping to hit 'pause' on racing thoughts and reduce stress levels. The ebb and flow of waves that you hear as you lie on your sunlounger de-stimulates the brain, and for some has a more relaxing effect than even music.
Activating the parasympathetic nervous system, scientists have shown that the sound of water also helps to lower the concentration levels of cortisol in your bloodstream, slowing your heart rate, reducing blood pressure and relaxing the body’s muscles.
Recent years have seen a demand for the yachting experience to take more of a holistic approach, with health and wellbeing as a priority of most guests. When it comes to the ultimate relaxation, many of the superyachts have their own spas and treatment rooms, along with Hammams, saunas and jacuzzis. Some of the larger yachts even have entire decks devoted to wellness, with dedicated beauty and massage therapists.
