This total relaxation is based on what I taught in prenatal classes with some additions of neurobiology I learned along the way and from my friend and colleague, clinical hypnotist, Joy Borthwick.
This is the first of three recordings. This one is very detailed, relaxing your body in tiny sections. During the second you will relax your body in larger sections and in the last you will learn to achieve total body relaxation in 1 to 3 breaths
Find a comfortable place to lay down and cover yourself with a blanket, as you will become cool as you relax.
You may want to listen with earphones to achieve a comfortable sound level
Practice this daily for the coming week. On day 5 -7 when I instruct you to tense and area, merely think of the area as you breathe in and relax it as you breathe out. If you are unable to achieve as deep a relaxation go back to tensing as you breathe in and relaxing as you breathe out.
