Active Rest Procedure

The Active Rest Procedure 

This is another name given to the Lying Down Procedure and is practised in the semi-supine position as below.  People are encouraged to use this on a daily basis, throughout our lives. It is also known as the Constructive Rest Procedure.

By using this procedure regularly we can reduce back pain and fatigue and calm our nervous systems. We learn more about how our mind influences our body, so we are better able to let go of old habits.
