Synopsis

A different and exciting form of self-care in the form of practical mind to body self-regulation.

In the challenging times of the 21st century, looking after oneself and navigating the bumps in the road has become more difficult than ever. However, this fascinating book, written by two psychotherapists with many years of experience, provides a simple and reliable means of restoring the balance which is vital for the robust body mind system we need if we are to be able to bounce back from adverse experiences.

It is this balance (homeostasis) that provides us with the highway to wellbeing and it is our body mind system’s innate capacity to self regulate which is at the core of this book. Using six key Autogenic Training exercises, the authors provide readers with the skillset to self regulate at any time or any place. These exercises can activate the parasympathetic nervous system and involve body scans, breathing and other bodily awareness exercises.
