Autogenic Training for Chronic Pain
This CPI member only event is fully booked out. Dr Shelagh Wright is deliving an Autogenic Training programme for Chronic Pain Ireland. Autogenic Training is a specific technique of deep relaxation which consists of learning a series of simple mental exercises designed to turn off the stressful ‘fight-flight’ mechanism in the body and turn on the restorative rhythms associated with profound relaxation. In general, the effects of AT on the mind and body may be considered as being diametrically opposed to changes brought about by stress (Luthe & Schultz, 1969).
