Relaxation is the Ultimate Treatment Method and the Key Secret to Biological Regeneration

Practitioners of mental cultivation and the path of Tao consider entering a state of tranquility as a shortcut to reaching the highest state, and the first step to achieving this tranquility is relaxation.

Relaxation is tens of times more certain and excellent than what we commonly know in our daily lives. It's the ultimate key to practice and treatment. Instantly, it slows down breathing, heart rate, and lowers blood pressure, preparing us for high-level concentration along with mental stability. It also improves digestion, reduces stress hormones, relaxes muscles, diminishes long-standing pain, enhances focus, aids in deep sleep, and even reduces anger and despair.

Multiple research studies have proven that relaxation enhances problem-solving abilities and shifts to positive thinking. The benefits and efficacy of relaxation are so numerous that it's impossible to list them all, and fundamentally, it's even better than taking medicine, at least in the short term.

As for the most effective methods of relaxation:

First is breathing. Diaphragmatic breathing involves making the exhale twice as long as the inhale. Danjeon breathing, where the navel serves as the base of a triangle, focuses on a point about three inches below the navel.

This method involves inflating the danjeon like a mountain peak on the inhale and emptying it like the deep sea on the exhale. Breathing deeply and comfortably through the nose, we intake 3-7 times more oxygen than normal breathing, stabilizing the mind and activating the body's immune function, warming the body, and ensuring even blood circulation.

In Taoism, it is said that the great way is not difficult and can be achieved by anyone who knows it. Danjeon relaxation breathing is the first secret to achieving this.

The popular "stop breathing method" is originally a high-level practice in a three-year breathing training course. It temporarily raises blood pressure and requires high concentration, so it's not recommended for beginners, those with chronic diseases, especially patients with high blood pressure.

Other relaxation methods include progressive muscle relaxation, visualization, meditation, emotional regulation techniques, acupuncture, acupressure, massage, Tai Chi, yoga, music therapy, singing, dancing, aroma therapy, hydrotherapy, bathing, tea ceremony, biofeedback, neurofeedback, and more.

Progressive relaxation, also known as body scanning, involves progressively relaxing all tense muscles – a technique where one can prevent pain by becoming aware of muscle tension and directing relaxation through speech.

Relaxation therapy directly affects diseases like depression, anxiety, heart disease, digestive disorders, muscle tension, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, muscle cramps, pain, and insomnia.

It's clear why many martial arts schools emphasize thoughtlessness before and after training, practicing meditation in a seated posture.

Through this session, realizing the importance of relaxation therapy and continuously practicing it in everyday life will soon lead to noticeable physical changes.
