If thinking about something tastes sour makes your mouth water, then you may understand how Autogenics works. Autogenics is a technique that uses mental commands to reverse physical symptoms such as cold or clammy hands. By telling yourself you feel warm and heavy your body begins to relax; your body learns to follow your thoughts.
1. Sit comfortably, loosen any tight clothing, close your eyes and clear your mind.
2. Mentally focus on your right arm, repeating to yourself, “My right arm feels warm and heavy,” until it feels warmer and heavier.
3. Repeat the same command with the rest of your body until you feel completely relaxed.
