Autogenic training is a relaxation technique developed by the German psychiatrist Johannes Heinrich, which involves repetitions of a set of visualizations that induce a state of relaxation.
Is based on passive concentration of bodily perceptions like as heaviness and warmth of arms, legs.
The technique is used to alleviate many stress-induced psychosomatic disorders.
After the 8 week program participants will be able to execute the autogenic training all by themselves, anytime and anywhere, where they can find some quiet space, in the office, in the train or at home.
With only 5 minutes of using the technique, a deep relaxation will take place, which is comparable with a 30 minutes nap.
