Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has been instructed to unwind by "barking like a dog in the mornings", courtesy of advice from rocker Sting.

Paltrow has been conferring notes with the EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE singer about their love for holistic therapy - which includes the bizarre canine method for "getting in touch with your inner voice".

A source tells Britain's DAILY MAIL newspaper, "She has all sorts of healings and balancings done on her body.

"The worst person for her to get talking to is Sting because he is insanely alternative, too.

"Gwyneth was fascinated by some discipline he tried which involved getting in touch with your inner voice by barking like a dog in the mornings."
