"Take a rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. "
Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

There are several techniques and levels of relaxation and many studies documented on the effects of relaxation in the body. Many of us walk around with unconscious stress in our shoulders, belly, back or other part of the body, not aware of the degrees to which these areas are tense.
