Review

I almost fell asleep... while trying to review this truly wonderful relaxation aid. One of the best I've come across. -- New Age Retailer Magazine, July, 2005

Product Description

Can’t sleep? Stressed? Nervous? Worried? Anxious? Stress management / sleep CD helps you relax to sleep quickly and naturally. "Just Relax - Relaxing to Sleep" is a spoken word program (not subliminal) and sound therapy (healing tones) that promotes relaxation, self-healing and deep, restful sleep.

"Just Relax..." alleviates the restlessness and sleeplessness commonly associated with insomnia, addiction withdrawal, post-surgical trauma, chronic fatigue and chronic pain, post traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety and worry. "Just Relax..." is so effective that a distinguished teaching university and research hospital in San Francisco, UCSF/Mt. Zion Medical Center, recommends it to their patients with insomnia. If you are among the tens of millions of people worldwide seeking an inexpensive, easy-to-use, portable stress management tool, are nervous or anxious in response to our troubled times, feel distraught over the inability to heal from chronic illness, are in recovery or simply shopping for a natural, less habit-forming way to fall asleep, then "Just Relax..." is for you!

Just Relax... is very repetitive, and for a good reason. By repeating many of the same words and phrases, the brain / mind stops paying attention to the words and tunes out. When that happens, you automatically fall asleep. If you think that might be annoying to you, or if you're looking for a step-by-step 'how to' program, with tips and techniques to prepare you for sleep, but not necessarily put you to sleep, rather than purchasing our CD, we recommend that you to buy a book instead.

Just Relax... is filled with positive affirmations, defined as saying or hearing phrases which are true, in order to make them real for you. They don't have to be true today, however, since most affirmations are not true. But if you say or hear them long enough, and repeat them often enough, eventually you will believe them, and they will be true. It's a way of tricking your mind for the better. One example is 'relaxing, relaxing.' Another is 'I feel wonderful.' By repeating the same phrases at the most important time if the day, which is five minutes before you fall asleep, the mind not only tunes out your negative thoughts, but it sets in motion those health benefits contained in our CD to reprogram your mind while you sleep, change your negative habits to improve your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being. The publisher offers a money back guarantee based on the price that you paid for the CD. Shipping is non-refudable. For details, please contact the publisher, not Amazon.com.

I was given this CD as a gift, and was skeptical after reading the review making fun of it.

I am appalled by this CD. Gail Seymour keeps on repeating "relax, relax, relax", then briefly gives a few pieces of advice on "how" to relax, but this goes much too quickly. The rest of the main part of the CD talks about the benefits of relaxation, which doesn't help you to relax, just makes you wish you could.

I have used Cds that really give you practical methods of relaxation and that is why I bought this CD. It is usually very efficient and I was curious to try something different. When she says "next time I use the word relax, it is as if I had said it ten thousand times", I really feel cheated.

My insomnia comes and goes. Stress, caffeine and depression are all factors. I've tried sleeping pills, and all I got were mornings that felt like I'd been drinking booze the night before. Drugs are never an option for me. No thanks. Although the subliminal CDs I've purchased in the past were nice to listen to, they never seemed to help. I ordered Just Relax at the recommendation of a friend who found it beneficial. The instructions in the beginning of the CD are pretty straight forward. I listened to them once, maybe twice. When I played track 2, it took me a few minutes to adjust to hearing someone's voice, but it became a familiar one (like a good friend) very quickly. The next thing I knew, it was morning, and the alarm clock was going off. It works all right. I got a full 8 hours. Just Relax is probably the best CD I've ever used to help me with insomnia. It usually does the trick. Gail Seymour's voice is soft and gently persuasive, suggesting that I relax, and soon I find myself drifting off to sleep. There's soft music in the background, as well as on track 3, which is very easy to listen to night after night. I never seem to tire of it. I highly recommend this CD for anyone with sleep disruptions who wants safe, drug-free rest. I'm really glad I bought it. It's worth every penny.

I was given this CD as a gift, and was skeptical after reading the review making fun of it. I finally decided to give it a try last night, and it works.

I can understand how the other reviewer said it sounds funny hearing the constant talking, and they are right, it is very repetative. But I think that is the whole goal behind the CD. Monotony will bore you and clear your mind.

I wish I could review the entire CD, however I was asleep before the second track was complete. I popped it in the CD player, listened to the intro which explains how it works, then it went on to the spoken meditation track. I remember listening to it not thinking it was doing any good, then waking up this morning. Supposedly it has a track after the voice which is instrumental only, but I obviously didn't make it that far.

If you need something to clear your mind of all the day to day worries and stresses, this CD is an excellent choice. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Just Relax puts me to sleep before the ending every time. I love this CD. This is the most relaxing and healing meditation cd I have ever bought. One day I will try to listen to the entire cd if I can, but this relaxes me so much I have yet to finish it.

My wife tried it and she is the one who really needed it and now every night she puts this on lays down and clears her thoughts and just listens and it relaxes her (Thankfully)

This CD seems to be based on principles of hypnosis or trance-like relaxation. It begins with a certain pace and tone that is similar to one's presumed present pre-relaxed state. Then the pace and tone subtly change to reflect the relaxation that is occurring. The CD ends with a period of relaxing "hearts of space" type of music that is conducive to "floating off". The spoken part is repetitive and trance-like to achieve its desired effect. It should be useful for those needing assistance falling to sleep.

I just had to write a review and warn people that this is definitely not the greatest choice for relaxation. The woman (...) who is speaking, first of all, has a very callous sound to her voice, in that it sounds "mean" and almost like she doesn't want to be doing this. I felt like it was a bit condescending. Also, throughout her "meditation," she is CONSTANTLY talking, repeating the same lines over and over--I mean, excessively! My husband and I were trying to listen to it when we went to bed one night to help us fall asleep, and we couldn't help but break out laughing a few times because she sounds so ridiculous. We then switched over to the second CD I had purchased at the same time as this one (The Gift of Relaxation by Barry Pitkoff), and it was like a breath of fresh air--it was awesome! We listen to that one every night now, and I sleep like a baby. This "Just Relax" one, however, I just want to stomp on and throw out the window. What a waste of [money].

I have listened to the CD 4 or 5 times now. I have never actually heard the whole CD program through to the end, because I always get relaxed and fall asleep long before that. I originally bought this as a relaxation guide, but I will use it now anytime I have trouble falling asleep at night --it works great!
