The original RelaxNow program, where it all started. This program is optimized for children ages 3 to 12. It is a short 12 min program with simple clear language to better facilitate the shorter attention spans of younger children. While aimed at the child, for many if our clients it has become a welcomed quite family time where parents and children share the experience.
All the RelaxNow programs are fundamentally “brain training.” A major league baseball pitcher doesn’t have to “think” about how to throw a fastball. These professional athletes develop “muscle memory” until that action becomes an unconscious habit. RelaxNow is a short, easily downloadable audio program designed to create what could be called “Mental Muscle Memory” in that it teaches a mind how to self-regulate its response to stress, anxiety or unwanted emotional levels.
RelaxNow for Older Children
While sharing much of the content and all of the technology of the original program, RelaxNow for Older Children is, as its name implies, optimized for adolescents ages 12 to 18. It differs in that it is a little over 17 Min. long. This is for several reasons; one being, as a mind matures it takes a little longer to develop the new neural pathways and habits that are at the core of the RelaxNow program. Another way in which it is different is the childlike language of the original program has been aged up so as to not be distracting to older kids.
The RelaxNow Atmospheres programs work for anyone. They are highly effective for users of the other RelaxNow programs or are great as a stand-alone product. They consist of the high resolution background nature sounds and all the tones and subliminal tools of the other programs but leave out the audible voice. This allows it to be played quietly and unobtrusively in the background while doing any number of actives, such as: working on projects, doing homework or winding down to sleep.
