iRest combines Eastern and Western practices into a practical and secular program for healing. It is derived from an ancient yogic meditation practice and has been developed over 45 years by clinical psychologist Richard Miller, PhD.-A simple self-paced program offered in a group which focuses on physical, psychological, and spiritual health.
Over 25 research studies have been completed utilising iRest for healing PTSD, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, sleep issues, and for enhancing resiliency and well-being. iRest is also being studied as a non-pharmacological alternative to drugs that are used to treat PTSD, anxiety, multiple sclerosis, and sleep-related issues.
“Will definitely return to this course, for in-depth understanding, I took from it what I needed and I can’t put into words the change I feel. It goes beyond better sleep, positive thinking etc, it’s far more than that only it didn’t involve that much work which is odd, I just showed up to class and listened to the audios regularly. An almost sub conscious change within me without really doing anything. Intriguing!”
“You helped me taking steps in dealing with my terrible loss, I really thank you for that”
“ When I practice iRest I notice that I have a sharper mental clarity and am able to relax faster to relieve both the mental and physical stress I’m under.”’
“I truly believe that iRest helps to save my life every day. It has given me the hope and strength I needed to reconnect myself to the world again”.
