Autogenic training is a relaxation method based on autosuggestion. You use the power of thought for more calmness and relaxation.
Stress is caused by an imbalance between tension and relaxation. In phases of tension, our sympathetic nervous system is active, which increases our heart and breathing rate, supplies our muscles with blood and inhibits digestion.
Usually after a while the parasympathetic nervous system sets in automatically, which is responsible for the regeneration of the body, the build-up of the body's own reserves and digestion.
However, this balance is disturbed by constant stress. Whether it is due to the double burden of family and job or a particularly high performance demand on oneself.
As a result, on a physical level, high blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, chest pain, heartburn, chronic digestive problems, fatigue, a weakened immune system, headaches, back pain, skin diseases and much more can occur.
The psychological consequences are similarly serious. Those affected often complain of inner tension and restlessness, difficulty concentrating, fear and anger, irritability and dissatisfacti
Autogenic training therefore directly targets the autonomic nervous system with its formulas. In this way, many involuntary bodily functions such as heartbeat, breathing and digestion can be influenced at will.
Through regular practice, this method can lower high blood pressure and relieve physical tension. In general, stress resistance improves, as does physical performance, self-esteem and problem-solving skills.
This method has been empirically proven and is a legally recognized psychotherapy method.
