Relaxation refers to the state of body and mind that is free from tension, stress and anxiety. Stress affects us in different ways and we often don’t realise how stressed we actually are. This is because we get used to living in a tense state, with elevated levels of stress hormones that are harmful to our emotional and physical well being.
Relaxation is key to maintaining a healthy body and mind. Eastern cultures and religions have long promoted meditative practices to calm the mind and body. Research from around the world has studied how stress not only affects our moods but also leads to health problems such as poor digestion, bowel conditions and high blood pressure. It is also thought to lower our immunity.
In the early 1970s, Dr Herbert Benson, a cardiologist and professor from Harvard University, coined the term ‘relaxation response.’ He used it to describe how meditative practices create a physiologic reaction that is the opposite to stress. He also explored the scientific benefits of relaxation, and how the regular practice of relaxation can be an effective treatment for a wide range of stress-related disorders.
Hypnotherapy is an increasingly popular tool for reducing worry and helping people to gain control. It is designed to help slow down your breathing and heart rate, while lessening muscle tension and blood pressure. Hypnosis for relaxation is very effective for reaching a calm and deeply relaxed state and in restoring a sense of harmony between the mind and body.
