Why Use Relaxation?

Without wishing to state the obvious - relaxation is the opposite of stress. What ever causes us stress, we CAN reverse the physical symptoms of stress, and it can be done simply, easily and quickly

The quickest - and you may think surprisingly - the MOST EFFECTIVE way of doing so is through attentional breath work. There is a multitude of breathing exercises easily found online. Of all of them, there is a specific breath work exercise that I have used with the many thousands of people - in particular those with distressing tinnitus - with whom I have worked during my long career as a Hearing Therapist and Psychotherapist in and outside of the NHS.

Feedback from users on the breath work exercise:
After 5 days of use: "This breathing exercise is definitely making me feel calmer"
After a week of use: "I can fall asleep quickly after the breathing"

Here's an animation video that explains how to do it and a little about what it does to our physiology and neurobiology:

The above exercise is the first of the "practicals" presented in Module One and used throughout the course, together with additional guided relaxation
