This unique and dynamic course introduces the evidence and clinical practice of Relaxation Therapy. It offers an introduction into the why, what and how of Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing (DDB) as an evidence-based intervention for stress-related chronic conditions.
Participants explore the wonderful world of Psychoneuroimmunology research and its' relevance to Relaxation Therapy. The course includes both theoretical and practical components so participants develop proficiency in using relaxation clinically.
Relaxation Therapy is evidence-based, non-pharmacological, non-invasive and cost-efficient. Relaxation Therapy can decrease anxiety, depression, pain, sleep disorders, inflammation and trauma.
Session one is online to deliver theory, evidence and mechanisms of relaxation in healthcare. Session two is also online but will cover practical, experiential components of DDB to ensure best practice. Participants learn via PowerPoint presentations, group discussions, videos and practical experience, during both sessions.
Important note: Due to the current NSW lockdown, both sessions will now be delivered online via Zoom.
