Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Enjoy the deep relaxation, stress relief and benefits of meditation with the Meditation Oasis® Relax & Rest app. Three meditations of varying lengths allow you to relax deeply regardless of how much time you have available. Written Meditation Tips help support your experience with the guided meditations. No previous meditation experience is required.
-- Breath Awareness Guided Meditation (5 min) - to get centered and relaxed when you only have time for a short break.
-- Deep Rest Guided Meditation (13 min) - allows you to sink into a deeply restful state. Many people use this meditation for falling asleep.
-- Whole Body Guided Relaxation (24 min) - Relax totally and completely with this meditation which helps you locate tension in every part of the body, and let it go.
Each meditation can be listened to with or without music or nature sounds, and you can choose how long to listen to the music or nature sounds after the guided meditation finishes. Separate volume controls not only allow you to adjust the mix of voice and music to suit your preference, but give you the added option of listening to the music or nature sounds alone.

What's New in Version 6.0
IOS6 optimized. Now airplay enabled. New feature allows choice of music duration at end of audios. Now plays in background.
This is my second favorite guided meditation/relaxation app.
(I won't mention the first so as to not detract from the beautiful nature of this one.)
All I know is there are only this one and the other that actually help me relax instead of driving me nuts. Never thought I could fall asleep in the middle of anything, let alone somebody talking, but the narrator's voice and simple approach just works for me.
If you're hesitating to get the inner peace at night you'd like, have insomnia or just need a quick relaxation in the middle of the day,
this will help.
I know, I know, you think you can't, "Let It Go," but I am living proof that even after 52 years of stubborn poo-pooing of this kind of guided help, I actually can find, even when not listening to it, that, well, ya can!
Wish I has done it sooner. Sleep tight!!!!
Great relaxation app
This is one of my most used meditation apps. The leader's voice is soothing. I like the option to play only music. The ability to control volume separately for voice and background is great. I wish there was a graduated rewind control for those times I am distracted but don't want to start over. I also wish it fully played in the background. It does play behind the lock screen, but if another app is opened or a text comes, it breaks the session and one must start over. I like the new ability to continue to play music after the voice session has ended, but wish it could last longer than 2 hours. I also would like an alarm.
I started off using this app to sleep so I used the 15 minute option. Now, I made it my resolution to meditate for 5 min every morning and I use the 5 minute option. The nature sounds are fabulous and I like that you have options. The stream sounds so real, and so does the ocean etc. I also like the fact that you can increase the the volume of the voice or the sound and the fact that the nature sounds continues after the voice is finished. Again, this gives you the 'option' to continue w/ your own state of just being.
