Everyday stress and tension
are part of our modern lifestyle and can affect almost everyone at some
time in their life. During times of increased mental demands, the brain
sends signals to various body systems to leap into action. When the psychological and physical factors of tension are felt, the body increases its release of certain stress hormones through the adrenal glands.
A prolonged increase in these hormones is not ideal and can result in compromised vitality and may influence emotional, cognitive and physical health. In order to ensure that stress does not build up and have an adverse effect on your health, it is important to find stress management techniques that will work for you.
The natural way
sounds have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to
support the healthy functioning of the brain and nervous system,
helping to encourage healthy stress management and inner peace.
more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom.
There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability
of soothing deep relaxation music therapy to
effectively reduce stress and maintain a sense of peace and inner calm.
Natures soothing sounds in the form of soothing music can also aid in recovery from a number of ailments.
(Mockel M, Stork T, Vollert J, et al. Stress
reduction through listening to music: effects on stress hormones,
hemodynamics and mental state in patients with arterial hypertension
and in healthy persons. Dtsch Med Wochenschr 1995; 120: 745–52).
Studies also overwhelmingly support the use of progressive relaxation exercises, guided imagery, meditation and self hypnosis
techniques to alleviating anxiety and depression - resulting in a
greater sense of self esteem, emotional and physical well-being.
Following these practices on a regular basis has also been shown to support cardiovascular as well as systemic health.
What is The Calm Within CD?
‘Close your eyes, take a deep, deep breath... and relax’
begins The Calm Within CD, composed and recorded by our Clinical
Psychologist. Based on actual therapeutic sessions used in her private
practice, The Calm Within combines peaceful soothing music with
progressive relaxation exercises, guided imagery and positive self
scripting to provide you with an hour of therapeutic bliss whenever you need it.
This combination of therapeutic techniques and soothing deep relaxation music has been especially designed to induce a state of deep relaxation,
similar to what would be achieved in therapy, effectively relieving
tension and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal.
The CD is approximately one hour in length and is created to help provide all the benefits of an hour of relaxation therapy with a trained counselor - in the comfort of your own home!

How has The Calm Within CD helped others?
all have the ability to calm ourselves and to create a sense of
stillness and peace within us. However, many of us have lost touch with
that quiet and peaceful space deep inside us and instead have learned
to react to perceived stress with symptoms of panic and anxiety,
feeling out of control and afraid. The Calm Within CD
has been created to provide immediate relief from the symptoms of
stress and everyday worries, but also to teach you how to access your
own inner peace whenever you need it, putting you back in control
feeling less stressed and more confident. I have helped many many
clients using exactly the same techniques as you will find on the CD.
Experience for yourself what it feels like to get in touch with your
own inner calm.”
