  • Relaxing!

  • Great app

    By Jenny4692
    Very calming and easy to follow. I struggle to relax and to "get out of my head" and this app really helps. When stressed during the day I think of her voice and words - after listening to her for a while it's easy to do.
  • Lots of options

    By barb360va
    For me this an app I keep coming back to. There are many time options. The guidance is calming and forgiving. I have been using this app off and on for over five years. I have tried other apps but this is my favorite.
  • Great Tool

    Just starting this, but so far, this is a part of my day I look forward to. The voice is perfect. Thumbs up so far.
  • Beyond expectations

    By Wisdom Wizard
    Simply perfect. The meditation brings me to a quiet place quickly. I adjust the time and background to fit my circumstances. I’ve using it for several years. I looked around for more and always come back.
  • Great guided meditation app

  • It's so great

    By MisoCake
    I found myself every night tossing and turning, but then my mom recommended that I use this app. Now I sleep like a baby!
  • Soothing

    It's easy to follow and I love the ability to make adjustments
  • Definitely Recomend

    By AnonymousUntilNow
    I was very young when I discovered this app, around 9 or so, and I have been using it every night for the past 4 years to help me sleep. Now an anxious 13 year-old, this app has helped me relax at night and fall into an oasis of relaxation, taking my mind off school and everything that has happened that day. I don't have the voice on, for I usually turn the voice volume all the way down to just listen to the gentle background music. I prefer "light rain" as my sound, because I love rainy days. Sorry this review is so long, but I definitely recommend this app to people who have stress, anxiety, or even insomnia. So worth the payment. Thank you Meditation Oasis.
  • Best meditation app I’ve found

    By Papiluve
    I have tried a number of different meditation apps, but this is by far my favorite. It is very handy that you can manually control the volume of the voice and the volume of the music separately. I have come to use the app in two different ways: voice-only is for my meditation, and music-only (“Acceptance”) is to help me drift off to sleep, whether for a nap or for the night. That music can knock me out in under five minutes in virtually any circumstances! This app is a great value; I highly recommend it.
