Allow me to share with you a simple relaxation technique to reduce stress which has scientifcally been proven to reduce stress on a physical, mental and emotional level – Progressive Muscle Relaxation.
By going through groups of muscles in turn, tensing them for a few seconds and very gradually releasing the tension, deeper than normal levels of muscle relaxation can be attained. As well as deepening physical relaxation and heightening our awareness of areas and levels of tension, this technique reliably effects a more general state of mental and emotional calm. It is a technique I often use in my hypnosis sessions with clients, especially with “Type A” personalities, because they are actively involved in the process of becoming relaxed.
Get ready to become more relaxed than you thought possible!

Your natural way of being or birthright is to be calm, confident and at peace. But “the ways of the world” bombard us with information that perpetuate everything but that.
May we take personal responsbility and embark upon practices that take us back to our center, our calm, our personal power that promotes well-being.
