Relaxation Techniques

To Smooth and Harmonize Your Energy Field and Promote Wellness on All Levels

Relaxing after dinnerCopyright Dane Gregory Meyer

Relaxation techniques can do wonders for your health. Relaxation promotes balance, flow and harmony in your energy field. It clears your mind, balances your emotions and promotes physical wellness. In fact, de-stressing is one of the best things you can do for your  overall well-being. Learning and regularly practicing some relaxation techniques is a fantastic investment in your quality of life.

How Relaxation Helps

On an energetic level, being relaxed allows our energy to shift more easily to a state of healthy balance and flow. 

On a physical level, it feels great and allows our bodies’ natural self-healing and restoration processes to work like they’re supposed to.

Most of us think of R & R as a luxury. Something for vacation, or that spa visit we’re saving for.

But it’s so much more than a luxury. In fact, I believe that it’s a necessity--so good for you that I wish there were a branch of medicine devoted to it.


It’s not that stress is all bad. A moderate, temporary amount can actually be good for you. And as we all know, at least some stress is involved in almost all good outcomes. Think of having children; getting a new job; starting something new. It seems almost necessary for growth and change.

Good stress like this is temporary and manageable.

The bad kind of stress feels overwhelming, and it doesn’t let up for days, weeks, months, even years. This ongoing, heavy tension is a contributor to many kinds of illness and disease, not to mention mental suffering.

The Relaxation Response: a Prescription for Health & Wellness

Relaxing, on the other hand, turns off our body’s response to stress — with remarkable benefits for our physical, mental, emotional, and energetic health. Here are some of the good things that it does for you:

  • Slows your heart rate
  • Normalizes blood pressure
  • Slows your breathing rate
  • Reduces the need for oxygen/allows oxygen to be used more efficiently
  • Decreases adrenal glands production of stress hormones
  • Increases production of growth and sex hormones
  • Improves immune system health
  • Increases blood flow to major muscles
  • Reduces muscle tension
  • Helps relieve aches and pains such as headaches and back pain
  • Helps you handle negative emotions such as anger and frustration
  • Gives you more energy
  • Improves concentration and creativity
  • Improves ability to handle problems

See what I mean? It sounds like the secret key to health nirvana, a veritable fountain of youth.

What? It’s not that easy?

Well, of course not, with all those stress hormones pumping through your system.

But there are ways to learn to dial down tension and anxiety and become calmer and more peaceful. Some of these relaxation techniques are incredibly simple.
