A growing body of research supports the use of relaxation techniques to aid the management of a number of emotional health concerns. Relaxing the mind and body can improve, anxiety, depression, stress management and sleep problems, just to name a few. “When people are chronically angry and scared, constant muscle tension ultimately leads to spasms, back pain, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, and other forms of chronic pain.” Bessel Van Der Kolk, M.D., The Body Keeps the Score.
Everyone experiences stressful events from time to time, but effectively managing stress can be challenging for some. “Individuals with poorly modulated autonomic nervous systems are easily thrown off balance, both mentally and physically. [This]…not only has negative effects on thinking and feeling, but also on how the body responds to stress.” Bessel Van Der Kolk, M.D., The Body Keeps the Score.
