Initially, Dr. Rossman's voice was a bit off-putting for me. Kind of slow and lazy-sounding. But the goal is relaxation, so a dynamic high-energy narrator might defeat the purpose. His voice soothes and comforts, engendering feelings of safety and trust. This is especially beneficial for folks just starting out in the world of meditation.
I spent my career as a psychiatric nurse and psychotherapist, and developed a penchant for meditation, relaxation and guided imagery for myself and frequently helped my patients learn how to use this crucial tool for anxiety, depression, stress and a huge panoply of everyday problems.
Dr. Rossman deftly utilizes a progressive relaxation technique including the themes of safety and security and gently guides the listener into relaxation, with no "performance anxiety". Like when you drive yourself NUTS forcing yourself to RELAX!! FYI: This never works. His approach is slow, making the listener feel accepted and encouraged.
This tape is exactly what I was hoping to find. I have MS, and dealing with many symptoms is discouraging. I've purchased a few tapes, but for me, this fits the bill! And you can bet that I'm going to check out Dr. Rossman's other tapes!!
