This book can be your key to a happier and longer life. Laura Mitchell avoids complicated exercises or mediation and teaches you to recognise the pattern of stress all over your body. She equips you with a series of precise orders to give yourself to change tension to ease. You don’t have to stop whatever you are doing before carrying the orders out – they fit in with housework, office routine, meetings, driving, telephoning – in fact just those times and places when tension most often grips you and when you want to get free from it fast. Equally you can use the method for resting or to help you get to sleep. The book has become recognised as a classic guide that puts you back in control of your own body.
