meditations, visualisations and simple exercises
Body integration exercise : (PDF) An affirmation/meditation process to help integrate the body-mind, and increase body awareness. This is particularly for serious illness, but can be used - and is useful - for anyone.
Positive Body Awareness : An introduction (PDF) A modification of the Body integration exercise, based on a combination of mindfulness (Kabat-Zin), focussing (Gendlin) and PolyVagal Theory (Porges). Eventually these will be combined into one book - but quite a way to go. Feedback and comments about your experiences using this are most welcome.
Notes on Central sensitisation : (PDF) - a specific case application of the Positive Body Awareness information sheet. Feedback and comments about your experiences using this are most welcome.
TMJ stabilisation techniques (PDF) : three simple exercises which take just a few minutes every day, and which might assist in reducing the symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome. Please note that these do not replace treatment, and if they are effective in reducing symptoms, then that is a VERY good indication that treatment is both necessary and potentially highly beneficial.
