Envisage yourself burying the feet in soft coral sand, warm waves gently crashing against your skin, feeling the caresses of a healing breeze on a body full of vitality. Visualize yourself with eyes closed, drinking in the smell of ginger flower and ylang ylang tree, while your ears take in the symphony of parrots, howler monkeys and the slow rush of a sleepy sea.
