To gain most benefit from this Tape, it is advisable to practice it once a day. The relaxation techniques can be easily adapted for use in other situations. Side 1 of the Tape will lead you through an Autogenic Relaxation. This is a very simple technique that involves you focusing your mind on your body and initiating changes that effect the Autonomic nervous system leading to feelings such as increased warmth heaviness and relaxation. Many users have found the exercise beneficial in helping to alleviate migraine’s, high blood pressure and other vascular complaints.

Side 2 of the Tape goes through a series of exercises to help you relax. As with any exercise programme if you have physical problems or any doubts about the suitability of the exercise you are strongly advised to consult your G.P. or medical advisor.

When you are exercising you are aiming to stretch the muscles and to loosen the joints.These exercises need to be undertaken slowly and smoothly and should not cause pain although some stiffness may be expected if you do not exercise regularly. It is also a useful type of relaxation if you suffer with arthritis as no stress is put on the joints, providing you follow the instructions.

VOICE: Tania Tulloch Head Occupational Therapist DIP COT Harrogate Health Care NHS Trust

Side one not to be played whilst driving or during any activity which requires considerable attention.

TANIA TULLOCH Since qualifying as an Occupational Therapist, Tania has worked almost exclusively in the Mental Health field. She has developed a special interest in Stress management and has identified key components in Relaxation Therapy.

On this Tape Tania has adapted her own experience using physiological methods and including positive imaging techniques. These techniques can be transferred into all aspects of daily life. Relaxation is a result of carefully selected orders.

DIRECTIONS We recommend that to get maximum benefit from the relaxation Tape, try to identify a 20 minute period daily, preferably not straight after meals. We suggest that you lie down in a comfortable position with a pillow under your head. All the directions are transferable into other situations and help to continue to promote an easing of tension.

This Tape enables the listener to be talked through the stages of relaxation whilst the music plays in the background. Side 2 on the tape plays the music alone enabling the listener to play the music in any situation whilst promoting the feeling of relaxation through association.
