|What is Autogenic Training|
Autogenic Therapy (AT) is a powerful mind and body technique involving simple relaxation and body awareness exercises. These reduce the intensity of the body's stress response, and replace it with a calmer physiological state in which self-healing naturally begins to occur.
(*)When we are in a stressful situation, we react bodily and emotionally. Our whole body and all of our cells store information, and we can also integrate the general state of tension within our muscles. Heaviness and warmth focus on the musculo-skeletal system. The first two exercises give us an opportunity to access this hidden information and begin to process it. The reduction of muscular tension sends a powerful message to the body's network: it transmits the information through the brain stem to all areas of the brain that the body and muscles are resting, and so the mind can relax.
