Find Your Mantra

To find your mantra you can go to a peaceful place, sit in a comfortable position, and focus on a word or phrase that you find relaxing.

Autogenic means something that comes from within you. During this type of relaxation, you repeat words or suggestions in your mind to help you relax and reduce the tension in your muscles. Find a peaceful place where you'll be free of interruptions. Then follow these steps:

• Choose a focus word, phrase, or image you find relaxing. Examples of words or phrases include "peace," or "I am peaceful." This is called a mantra.

• Sit quietly in a comfortable position.

• Close your eyes.

• Relax your muscles, starting at your head, working down your body to your feet.

• Breathe slowly and naturally, focusing on your word, phrase, or image.

• Continue for 10 to 20 minutes. If your mind wanders, that's okay. Gently return your focus to your breathing and the word, phrase, or image you selected.

• After time is up, sit quietly for a few minutes with your eyes closed. Open your eyes and sit in silence for a few more minutes.

Testimonial

  • "Dr. Ron is a colleague and I hold him in high regard! As a specialist he has a broader understanding of health than most traditional chiropractors. Being able to help people get well using chiropractic care, nutrition, and function diagnostic medicine is an area I would recommend any patient to try first, regardless of their current diagnosis."

  • "My wife and I were visiting from out of town. And my neck and back were achy from all the hours stuck in the car. Dr. Bouffard was very accommodating and his staff were pleasant and helpful! I walked out of his office feeling like a million bucks. I highly recommend his services. Thank you, Dr B!!"
