Autogenic Training developed by Dr. J. H. Schultz and Progressive Muscle Relaxation developed by Edmund Jacobson
Two paths to Relaxation
Autogenic Training developed by Dr. Schultz, J. H.
A gentle way to relax
I have compiled a very brief guide of autogenic training for you, based on my experience as a relaxation coach in a rehabilitation clinic. I hope that with these instructions you will easily learn autogenic training.
For a long time now, stress research has proved that thoughts and feelings, whether positive or negative, affect the specific reactions of the body.
Thoughts of fear trigger anxiety and respective responses in the body. Thoughts of joy trigger happy feelings and reactions in the body. Thoughts of autogenic training trigger relaxation reactions.
This is exactly what you will learn with this manual. Thought formulas with which you trigger relaxation reactions in your body.
Progressive Muscle Relaxation According to Edmund Jacobson
A breath of fresh air for the soul
During my time as a clinical psychologist in a rehabilitation clinic, I was able to give the short guide on progressive muscle relaxation, found in this book, to more than 5,000 clients.
They all confirmed to me that progressive muscle relaxation is a powerful exercise form that shows its positive effect in the relief and strengthening of the mind, body and soul.
We live in an age where people have to process lots of information. Therefore, I have deliberately created a short, effective guide to progressive muscle relaxation that you can learn quite easily and implement for your own relaxation.
I am sure you will love the relaxation exercises described here and gainfully integrate them into your daily routine.
