Everyone can benefit from the wonderful effects gained from using relaxation techniques. The special relaxation techniques in these recordings are a great way to relax and cope with the stress and strains of modern life.
During a relaxation session it is well proven that as your body relaxes and softens endorphins, your body's own natural feelgood agents, are released - and stress and tension melt away.
Jan Sadler's techniques will take your mind away from everyday problems and stresses and bring peace of mind, better health and well-being.
Many of the tracks include an enjoyable and relaxing visualisation, where you are led, in your imagination, to a scene where you will find peace, comfort and deep relaxation - allowing the tension and stress to float free.
For the sessions you will need to find somewhere where you won't be disturbed, to sit or lie down as comfortably as you can - so you can just listen to the words. You don't have to do anything - except focus on the words - and then allow your body to respond. For the best results, use relaxation techniques on a regular basis.
