Demystifying Technology Assisted Relaxation Training
Did you know that biofeedback machines and relaxation-focused computer programs have been around since the 1970s? A quick search on Google will locate more than 14 pages of websites and articles where you can read up on how technology is used for problems such as:
- Brain injury
- Fear of flying
- and many other ailments
The beauty of the interactive computer program designed to track certain physiological levels related to stress and relaxation is that you get immediate, objective feedback on how thoughts and feelings are producing responses moment by moment in your own body. No abstract theory. No agenda-laden judgmentalism. Just pure measureable data.
For clients who like empirical evidence that mind and body are connected — that what you think has a direct and instantaneous effect on muscle tension and the release of stress hormones — this technology gives indisputable proof.
But beyond just having that knowledge, using a technology supported relaxation training program also literally teaches the mind and body to work more in harmony to increase physical performance, and to be less reactive to emotional stress. It’s a tool that enhances counseling and hypnosis, and speeds lasting change.
This is a fast-paced and high pressure world. We all struggle at times to cope with stress. Often the coping methods we choose aren’t really good for long term health, or for relationships, or on-the-job productivity. Computer assisted relaxation training can give the techniques you want for coping that don’t end up disrupting your life.
A technology assisted relaxation program is available at Waves of Change. You can add it to your counseling or hypnosis sessions, or take it as the Waves of Relaxation package.
Make an appointment today to come see this technology for yourself, and learn more about what it can do for you. You’ll be glad you did.
