Find Your Mantra

To find your mantra you can go to a peaceful place, sit in a comfortable position, and focus on a word or phrase that you find relaxing.

Autogenic means something that comes from within you. During this type of relaxation, you repeat words or suggestions in your mind to help you relax and reduce the tension in your muscles. Find a peaceful place where you'll be free of interruptions. Then follow these steps:

• Choose a focus word, phrase, or image you find relaxing. Examples of words or phrases include "peace," or "I am peaceful." This is called a mantra.

• Sit quietly in a comfortable position.

• Close your eyes.

• Relax your muscles, starting at your head, working down your body to your feet.

• Breathe slowly and naturally, focusing on your word, phrase, or image.

• Continue for 10 to 20 minutes. If your mind wanders, that's okay. Gently return your focus to your breathing and the word, phrase, or image you selected.

• After time is up, sit quietly for a few minutes with your eyes closed. Open your eyes and sit in silence for a few more minutes.

Testimonial

  • "Just 3 sessions with Dr. Goss accomplished what 5 weeks of physical therapy couldn't--finally a treatment that worked for my neck pain! I've been doing so much better. I've continued to see her for maintenance and the occasional urgently needed adjustment. I've been able to get appointments that work with my schedule and have been able to get in the same day when I need to. I've also been amazed by how quickly I am seen when I'm there for treatment--the longest wait I ever had there was 5 minutes to be seen (and that only happened once in the 2 years I've been going there). Usually, I am seen immediately. I highly recommend Complete Chiropractic of Union!"
