Stress reduction

Autogenic training is a method of reversing the fight-or-flight response by achieving a meditative state and becoming aware of specific body sensations with the goal of relaxation.

As it reverses the stress response, it’s been shown to be effective in relieving many stress-related conditions including tension and anxiety in the short term and chronic stress-related conditions like high blood pressure and irritable bowel syndrome in the long term.
