Advice from Doctor Bludau, specialist in internal medicine - Fuerteventura
Stress, worry, nervousness, the pressure of exams, fear... our body often reacts to psychic pressure with tensions and those bring on pain that creates even more pressure for us. It is a vicious circle which we can stop easily. We are talking about therapies such as autogenous training, Jacobsen's progressive muscular relaxation (PMR) or the conscious relaxation through correct breathing. Some people may think that is it hard work, they want to solve the problem in one go and that's why they prefer using medicine. But in the cases explained below, medicine isn't the solution.
With the adequate relaxation method, in a very short time, we achieve surprisingly good results. We can learn this method in a few hours and then use it anytime and anywhere. This means that when we are in a psychologically stressful situation we can imagine that we are in a relaxing situation and therefore avoid pains and states of anxiety. The positive effects long term of the correct method are more efficient mentally and physically, they strengthen the vegetative nervous system and improve the psychic and emotional stability. It is worth investing time to learn those exercises if it will improve your life noticeably. During the months of July / August, the German relaxation therapist and coach, Petra-Fleur Daase, will share information in our surgery about the different therapies available.
