Breathe Easy With HydraSenseMonday, July 06, 2015
Several weeks ago, I had an opportunity to join Melissa Grelo, co-host of CTV’s The Social, at an exclusive event at the Spa My Blend by Clarins at the Ritz-Carlton in Toronto. During this "Breathe Easy" spa retreat hosted by hydraSense, we discussed the importance of better breathing and its impact on your health and your mind. Then we enjoyed a special yoga class led by Kathy Parsons, a yoga instructor with a speciality in staying connected to the breath. The yoga room was beautiful as we were able to bask in natural light and learn simple breathing techniques that can be easily incorporated into our daily routine.
Then, while we waited to be called for a massage, I joined my friend Deborah in the green-tea infused vitality pool for some relaxing hydrotherapy. It was just what I needed after a long day at work.
Following our heavenly afternoon of luxurious pampering, we made sure to rehydrate and replenish with some delicious food.
Overall, it was an insightful afternoon and I thoroughly enjoyed the Spa My Blend experience. It was neat to learn how Melissa Grelo has been using hydraSense for several years, something that has come in handy while living on a farm and working with horses where she is constantly inhaling dander, dust and other debris. It was also great to further fine tune my yoga breathing technique with Kathy Parsons. For those of you who may be interested, hydraSense has shared the following guide on Better Breathing.

We each left with a lovely bag of goodies, including bottles of hydraSense Nasal Care and a Nasal Aspirator Starter Kit. I tried the Daily Nasal Care Medium stream a few weeks later when I was coming down with a cold since it works by flushing out excessive mucus accumulation and helps to relieve nasal congestion. I like that it comes from a 100% natural-source of sterile, undiluted, desalinated seawater, and is non-medicated, preservative and additive free. Children over 2 years of age and adults can use hydraSense Medium Stream at least twice a day (morning and evening) and 4 to 6 times a day when cold or allergy symptoms are present. Initially, the sensation was unusual and slightly unpleasant but I found it did help to somewhat ease nasal congestion and I was more used to it after a few days.
