The Book on Relaxation

In Sweden as in the rest of the western world we have developed a lifestyle that we find increasingly difficult to manage. We seem to have lost the natural rhythm of pauses and breaks in our eagerness to perform better and better. Every day our ability is put to the test: how strong are we physically and mentally? The fact that there are so many relaxation techniques and that interest in them is constantly increasing underscores our immense need to recover from the stress and over-stimulation – or monotony – that are part and parcel pf our technological society. “The Book on Relaxation” helps you understand what relaxation is – an unconscious ability that we all have; we just have to use it correctly. The various approaches and methods that Michael Ben-Menachem describes here have evolved in different cultures and at different times but have a lot in common. Based on all of them he builds up a new, simple relaxation model. “The Book on Relaxation” is the first comprehensive book on the topic in Swedish. It has been written both for interested laymen and professionals. Michael Ben-Menachem PhD lives in Göteborg.
