With smooth and comforting music in the background, a healing and relaxation expert gives us exercises to release stress in a gradual and systematic way. The techniques are straightforward suggestions that rely heavily on visual cues to empty the mind of troubling thoughts and focus it on relaxing all parts of the body. Cogent affirmations strengthen the listener's commitment to the calming process, support good health habits, and reinforce broad areas of self-esteem. Though not overtly meditative or hypnotic, the smooth guidance takes the listener to a rare otherworldly kind of place. Listening to the program daily, as the author recommends, most listeners will find this a balanced and easy-to-use antidote for the noisy treadmill most of us call our lives. T.W.
