What is Autogenic Training?
Autogenic training is a relaxation technique developed by the German psychiatrist Johannes Heinrich Schultz and first published in 1932. The technique involves the daily practice of around 10 minutes, usually in the morning, lunchtime and evening. During each session, the practitioner will repeat a set of visualisations that induce a state of relaxation. The technique can be used to alleviate many stress-related illnesses and psychosomatic disorders. Autogenic Training is highly effective in both stress management and stress relief.
Stress has been called the ‘health epidemic of the 21st century’ by the World Health Organization.
Stress can be caused by money troubles, job issues, relationship conflicts, health issues, etc. The effect of stress on our emotional and physical health can be devastating, resulting in many illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, headaches and migraine, anxiety and panic-attacks, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, etc.
Autogenic Training effects your Mind & Body and therefore on your Soul, it restores the balance between the sympathetic (flight or fight) and the parasympathetic (rest and digest), both branches of the autonomic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system therefore protects us of any danger, attack, harm or threat to our survival. Whenever we experience excessive stress chemicals such as adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol are released into our bloodstream to prepare the natural automatic fight or flee.
Your body responds by:
• Heavy sweating
• Heart begins to beat faster and faster
• Breathing starts to increase
Normally the parasympathetic nervous system has control for most of our life. It keeps us healthy by actively promotes our digestion and bowel movements, lowers blood pressure, slows the heart rate and strengthen the immune system.
Autogenic Therapy is a powerful mind and body technique involving simple relaxation and body awareness exercises. The verbal suggestion and visualisation focus on various physical manifestations of relaxation in the body:
• Heaviness in the muscular-skeletal system
• Warmth in the circulatory system
• Awareness of the heartbeat, breathing,
• the abdomen and a cool forehead
This process is calming the intensity of the body's stress response, the physiological state and self-healing can occur.
