Autogenic training.

Abstract

Westernized medicine has conditioned us to rely on the outer physician; Autogenic Training (AT) enables us to find and develop an intimate relationship with our own inner physician and healer. This article outlines the historical and theoretical background to AT. The training process is described and reference is made to research literature which illustrates those individuals, illnesses, and conditions which respond favourably to AT. Drawing on the current mind-body science of Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), AT is seen as a significant member of the growing body of PNI techniques, research, and complementary therapies in the UK.
