"... science has now reached a stage where 'body-mind' healing should be accepted as the third major treatment and prevention option, standing as an equal alongside drugs and surgery..."
--Herbert Benson, M.D., Harvard Medical School
There is a proven process, a 2-step protocol developed by Dr. Benson, that can prevent disease; reduce chronic pain; and accelerate healing...AT ANY AGE!
Learn how to do two things and you are on your way to enhanced health and wellness in just 8 weeks!
Only when your body is relaxed, may it heal
* When your body is relaxed...you activate your body's healing systems, reduce inflammation, and turn on the genes that promote healing...
* When your body is relaxed...brain activity slows down and your mind becomes receptive, open to more possibilities and innovative thinking...
* When your body is relaxed...your heart softens and you again become "touched" and inspired by life experiences and "moved" to action...
* When your body is relaxed...you experience a free flow of energy or life-force throughout your body. You become receptive to the natural healing vibrations that occur in nature and feel more like your healthy and happy-with-yourself self.
Only when the body is relaxed may it heal.
The fundamental practice is the relaxation response, the exact opposite of the stress (fight-flight-freeze) response.
Learning how to evoke the relaxation response PLUS activating your mind to support positive outcomes is essential to bodymind healing.
Imagine yourself easily entering the restorative and revitalizing state of therapeutic relaxation, a state in which you can quickly recover and rebalance your body from the stresses of the day.
Entering into this state and remaining in it for 12-15 minutes is the foundation for Body-Mind healing and wellness.
Most forms of relaxation make you feel better but you are not getting the micro changes that allow your body to heal. Learning how to evoke the relaxation response PLUS activating your mind to support positive outcomes is essential in body-mind healing.
Attend an Intro to Body-Mind Healing (in-person or ONLINE) to learn the basic 2-part healing protocol and experience the proven THERAPEUTIC relaxation response exercise used in decades of research by Herbert Benson, MD, whose groundbreaking work in the 1970's laid the foundation for the modern field of mind/body medicine.
The REVOLUTION is the discovery that body-mind healing affects the body positively down to the genetic level and can help to prevent and treat a wide variety of conditions. Sign up today!
With the publication of the Relaxation Revolution by Dr. Herbert Benson, we now have the results of over 4 decades of research that prove conclusively that the mind can influence the body down to the genetic level...."switching off" or "switching on" gene activity associated with health and disease.
Welcome to the Relaxation Revolution!
It was over thirty years ago, when as a student in the nursing program at the University of Buffalo, I was introduced to the ground-breaking work of Dr. Benson as he published his initial research on the relaxation response. I remember clearly practicing his techniques to calm and heal the body. We learned that healing can NOT take place when we are in the fight/flight stress response.
Only when the body is relaxed may it heal.
Over the years in my work as a holistic health educator, I have taught 100's of people how to relax...not realizing until Dr. Benson's new book was published in 2010, that we were affecting the body down to the genetic level. We now know, without a doubt, that body-mind healing is an vital component in any comprehensive healing and wellness program, an equal partner to surgery and pharmaceutical treatments.
It won't be long before everyone with any type of illness will know how to include the relaxation response into their self-care routine.
Dr. Judith E. Pearson, Ph.D. combines her experience in Neuro-Linguisitic Programming (NLP) and Hypnosis in this easy-to-understand how-to guide to help you conquer your worst habits, enhance your motivation, manage stress, and improve performance.
In the book readers learn how to apply self-hypnosis and NLP to lose weight, stop smoking, get quality sleep, improve your sport, respond resourcefully to criticism, overcome your fear of public speaking, and mentally prepare for surgery or medical procedures.
Every chapter is filled with sensible advice, helpful tips, and step-by-step self-hypnosis strategies.
The CD in the back of the book contains a 30-minute audio hypnosis session to teach you various methods of trance induction and hypnotic relaxation. This way, you get to learn self-hypnosis through hypnosis, under the guidance of a leading hypnotherapist.
I sincerely encourage you to attend a special introductions to body-mind healing so you may experience the relaxation response and learn how to engage the power of the mind in healing and wellness. You'll be surprised how good you will feel.
