The Apothecary Spa's curator insight, December 5, 2014 4:18 PM

a little meditation goes a long way

Guido's comment, December 7, 2014 6:31 PM
This technique talks about a type of mindfulness which helps people to suppress their Anxiety Attacks. This technique focuses on the present and not on the past. Anxiety is something rooted in the brain which is caused by a fear full event in the past (Myers, 2014). This unpleasant memory is something we can either remember or we cannot. In that case it is stored in the brain without us knowing about it and be the cause for the Anxiety Attacks (Janov, 2013). With this therapy, people will never deal with their unpleasant memories or find the root causes for their Anxiety Attacks. It therefore only may help at the moment to suppress an Anxiety Attack but it will never prevent/cure it for coming back in the future.
