What is Hayou Method? - Transform Stress in One Minute

Undo the damaging effects of stress

Hayo'u teaches you to master your health. The method begins with learning to undo the damaging effects of daily stress.

Created by practitioner Katie Brindle and rooted in the ancient but largely untapped wealth of knowledge offered by Chinese Medicine, Hayo’u is an effective technique comprising daily one-minute self-care rituals with the support of heavenly products.

Stress has a huge impact on our health and the way we look. It is at the root of so many conditions including pain, anxiety and depression, poor skin, low fertility, digestion and many sleep issues. Longer term, prolonged stress is contributing to myriad illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, cancer and auto immune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.

Most current advice is limited to “create some me time”, learn meditation, and try not to get stressed….

Hayo’u offers a much more practical, yet profound solution. It is enjoyable and easy. The techniques have been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation and boost immunity, preventing health problems and thereby improving both physical and mental wellbeing.

Given the relentless nature of modern life, Hayo’u has been devised to work throughout your day.

The Rituals

Click here to find full explanations and tutorials for all our techniques.

1. Beauty restorer ritual

Our simple self-massage technique draws out accumulated facial tension and leaves you with radiantly healthy skin. It relieves congestion, headaches, soothes sore eyes and unlocks aching jaws and brow to make you look and feel more refreshed.

The Beauty Restorer soothes facial tension and encourages a radiant complexion – after just one minute of use. This tool has been designed to use with water in your morning shower and at night with our specially formulated oil, ideally after a Hayo’u bath.

2. Reset ritual

When we get stressed, blood flow is diverted from our gut and skin to the skeletal muscles, in preparation for flight or flight. This disrupts the flow of circulation around the body making us feel at first anxious and then often tired and lethargic. Based on the healing benefits of Qi Gong, a Chinese martial art - the Reset ritual invigorates circulation, releases stored tension, loosens the spine and stimulates your digestive function.

3. Body restorer ritual

Gua sha is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation. Our one-minute self-massage technique targets the chest, neck, shoulders and lower back to disperse body tension accumulated through physical and mental pressure.

Consumer testing agreed that the Body Restorer relieved aches, pains and tension and improved quality of sleep after just one use – in 9 out of 10 cases. This tool has been designed to use by day through clothing and by night with our specially formulated oil, ideally after a Hayo’u bath or shower.

4. Rescue breath ritual

Deep abdominal breathing is our most immediate defence against stress. Chinese medicine teaches you how the ‘smile’ deep in the energetic centre of the body is drawn out by a rescue breath. The parasympathetic nervous system is immediately engaged, your heart rate is calmed and blood oxygenated – all reversing the stress response as soon as it happens. In just one-minute, our Rescue breath ritual disperses the negative emotional impact of stress and can create a deeply restorative meditative state.

Stay stress free all day…..
