Would you like to be able to control your reaction to stress, reduce
pain, improve your health and performance, and feel great?
Reflexercise™ was created by physical therapist, Scott Musgrave, MSPT. His powerful combination of techniques provides astounding results, enabling you to consistently balance your nervous system, and in the process, train your brain to be less reactive to stress, trauma, physical and emotional pain!
When you balance your nervous system, you give your body a method to discharge your brain’s reactions to stress, anxiety, trauma and pain. Reflexercise™ actually produces a brain chemistry change toward balance, and when your brain is balanced, so is your body!
With a little practice, you will be able to quickly (in less than 30 seconds!) and effectively perform these techniques in any setting, even in a crowded room.
Over the course of your life, like most people, you have learned to over react to stressful situations and hold onto the physiological effects (anxiety, depression, tension, shortness of breath…to name a few).
Reflexercise™ is an active process that allows you to retrain your brain (and body) to react appropriately relative to stressful situations, recover quickly, and be calm and balanced the rest of the time.
Reflexercise™ is the first step in a 6 part treatment approach called, Associative Awareness Technique™, or AAT™. AAT™ is a revolutionary new treatment approach designed specifically for complex, chronic conditions. One of the most important components of AAT™ is that the entire treatment program can be successfully performed at home, independently (just like Reflexercise™).

Reflexercise™ may well be one of the most important steps in the entire AAT™ treatment approach, because it is simple, effective and self applied in any position, anywhere. Whether you are starting this process on your own or under the care of a trained practitioner, your consistency with Reflexercise™ will dramatically influence your end result.
When Your Brain is Balanced, So is Your Body!
Reflexercise™ is a powerful practice. It’s like rebooting your hard drive and establishing a life habit that allows your nervous system to be less reactive and more effective.
Habits don’t change easily. Successful change requires repetition and time. Retraining your nervous system to be less reactive to stress is no different. With each repetition of Reflexercise™, you actively train your brain to remain calm and relaxed during life’s stressful situations. With enough repetitions, your nervous system’s habitual reactions will change with dramatic results!
Like any habit change, this life change requires an average of 21-28 days of consistent performance to be fully accepted within your nervous system. Some of you will require additional time based on your current stress levels and accumulated habits, while others may experience more rapid results. Consistent practice, however, is the key to positive outcomes in life, and it is CRITICAL to your success with the Reflexercise™ (and the AAT™) program.
The process of Reflexercise™ is very simple, and you can perform the exercise anytime, anywhere. I will describe each of the individual steps of Reflexercise™ below. Once you understand the recipe of what to do, I will teach you how to combine these powerful steps into the full exercise format. There are two main steps that you will learn to combine, resulting in a simple, fast, and very effective method of rebalancing your Autonomic Nervous System (re-booting your hard drive!).
First Step: Grateful Heart Breathing Technique
The first step is the “Grateful Heart Breathing Technique.” This simple and effective breathing and visualization exercise is designed to access your heart’s intuition and rebalance your emotions. Below are 3 options for doing this. Try all three at various times, and stick with the one that works best for you.
Completely fill your chest (and heart) with air during each inhalation, and slowly and gently empty your heart and chest of that air as you exhale. Breathe this way for a few moments.
Choose one of the following 3 Grateful Heart Breathing Technique options:
1. White light
As you inhale, visualize a white, calm healing light entering your body and gently filling your chest and heart. Allow this calm, healing light to illuminate your chest more brightly with each inhalation. You may wish to visualize “grabbing” the dark tension from any painful or traumatized areas of your body, and expelling it with your air as you exhale. Thus, you are visualizing that a white, calm healing light is entering your chest and heart during each inhalation, while dark tension is being eliminated from your body during your exhalation.
Focus your thoughts on something special that brings you a sense of joy, love, or happiness that you are grateful to have in your life. As you inhale into your chest, allow the joy, love, and happiness of your gratitude for that special something or someone to touch your heart. In essence, allow your heart to feel the warmth and connection to that special gratitude for a few moments.
Go back through your collection of memories, and focus on one of the most joyous, happy, and loving ones. Now, allow your mind to revisit that time or event in your life, and with each breath into your heart, allow your heart to FEEL the positive emotion of that memory.
Note: Some folks have difficulty actually allowing their hearts to feel this connection, especially when just starting the Reflexercise™ process. If you have difficulty feeling the warm, happy feelings in your heart, don’t dismay. Repetition is the key to success! Once you identify the approach that produces the best results for you, focus on your Grateful Heart Breathing Technique frequently. Desired results can often be achieved in as little as 5 – 10 seconds with practice!
Second Step: Reflexercise™ Core Practice
Read the following instructions in their entirety, and then put down this manual and perform the technique. You will be given access to a FREE Bonus Audio and Video designed to help you get the most out of Reflexercise™ below:
1. Choose a position of comfort, whether standing, sitting or lying on your back. (Practice this process in all 3 positions so you can perform Reflexercise™ in any setting)
2. Perform the Grateful Heart Breathing Technique as described above.
3. Place your hands down at your sides, with your palms facing forward and your fingers long and straight. Don’t strain your arms, hands or fingers, but do keep your fingers straight, long and slightly spread out.
4. Turn your head very slightly, within a comfortable range, toward one side. Most folks find that turning toward their dominant arm produces the best results.
5. Gently bite the tip of your tongue between your top and bottom teeth. Not too hard, but not too softly either. Bite your tongue with medium pressure, but make sure your bite is within your comfort zone.
6. Gently curl your toes into the soles of your shoes or the floor, or simply curl them comfortably downward if you are lying on your back with no shoes. You may experience cramping in your lower legs, feet or toes if you curl your toes aggressively. Be gentle and make the experience comfortable for you.
7. Now, close your eyes and take four deep, slow, cleansing breaths.
8. Put down this manual now, and perform the steps above simultaneously. Many of you reading this will feel an immediate wash of relaxation, peace and calmness as you complete Reflexercise™.
The results of this powerful routine are achieved by sending a multi-layered message to your Autonomic Nervous System that you are NOT in danger and that promotes balance within your neurological and physiological systems (and, therefore, your very life). The relaxation response is a good indicator that you have effectively rebooted your hard drive. Some of you may not immediately feel this relaxation response. Don’t worry! With adequate repetition of Reflexercise™, you will become more in tune with living in balance, and will develop the ability to feel true inner peace and relaxation. Some folks have become acclimated to living so far out of balance that they may take some time to identify what true relaxation actually feels like!
