This website only covers the open and transparent protocols for the Relaxation Response in detail. You can read the reasons for this on our page Why We Cover Only Open Protocols in Detail.

Open Protocols

Benson-Henry Protocol

The protocol or technique that is now promoted by Dr. Benson (who originally came up with the phrase "Relaxation Response"), is called the Benson-Henry Protocol, which we describe in greater detail.
