Sleep treatment review: Margaret Dabbs Peace and Calm Reflexology
"The lead up to the big day can make even the deepest of sleepers feel like an insomniac. Focusing specifically on complete stress reduction and soothing away tension, this relaxing treatment is like magic. <br /><br />After a 50-minute heavenly foot massage, during which my therapist honedin on the areas associated with relaxation, I was as chilled out as if I’d spent a week on a tropical island. That night I enjoyed a dreamless, deep eight-hoursleep, and woke up feeling fresh as a daisy. To have this sort of sleep everynight my therapist advised that I come back every week for a month. Justtry and stop me!"<br /><br />Hollie Bond, lifestyle editor<br /><br /><a href="http://www.margaretdabbs.co.uk/reflexology-treatment/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Margaret Dabbs Peace and Calm Reflexology</a>, £70 for 50 mins

Sleep app review: Pzizz
<strong>Pzizz, free, App Store and Google Play</strong><br /><br />"For a couple of months, I started waking up at 4am, unable to get back to sleep. During the day, I was dizzy with tiredness, but no matter how exhausted I got, I was still jolting awake like clockwork in the early hours. That was until I tried Pzizz. <br /><br />Now, each night, the app lulls me to sleep through a different combination of words, music and sounds – it feels like a massage for the mind. Amazingly, to me at least, it then keeps me slumbering until the alarm goes off. <br /><br />You might even <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/planning/essentials/9-ways-to-become-a-morning-person/19628.html" target="_self">become a morning person</a>!"<br /><br />Hannah Davies, features editor Rating: 10/10

Sleep treatment: Mindful Sleep at Espa Life at Corinthia
"Walking into Espa at Corinthia was like being transported to another planet; one that I never wanted to leave. <br /><br />Wellness guru Angel took me on a mindfulness journey, encompassing a personalised hot-stone massage, a therapeutic scalp massage, a yoga nidra session and even took the time to coach me on mindful breathing techniques. <br /><br />I left the treatment feeling ready to take on the world, or at least my to-do list! And, most importantly, I slept like a baby that night."<br /><br /><a href="https://www.espalifeatcorinthia.com/mindfulness/mindful-sleep" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Mindful Sleep at Espa Life at Corinthia</a>, £280 for two hours<br />Melanie Macleod, content writer
Sleep app review: Sleep Time+
<strong>Sleep Time+, £1.99, App Store and Google Play<br /></strong><br />"This app monitors the quality and depth of your sleep based on your movement levels during the night. I was comforted to see my bouts of awake time are at least followed by a deep slumber. <br /><br />I found the integral alarm clock useful; it finds the optimum moment to wake you, instead of startling you from a deep sleep. The app’s format did take a little getting used to, but I am starting my days with more energy."<br /><br />Laura Dean-Osgood, sub editor Rating: 6/10
