"I have conducted case studies of dozens of patients who have been able to get rid of depression, anxiety, and rage very easily with The Release Technique." Dr. Raul Rodriguez, Medical Director of Rivercrest Hospital, San Angelo, TX.

For decades, thousands of people around the world have claimed a technique called "Releasing," quiets their minds. Now scientists at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania are confirming that the fMRI scans of participants taken while "Releasing" are proof individuals are more peaceful, and the technique seems to have lasting effects.
For over fifty years, the Release Technique has proven to be a powerful, unique, simple, and very practical tool that dramatically improves the quality of life of individuals by teaching them how to eliminate any and all negativity instantly by using a method called releasing, or letting go. By releasing, practitioners learn to let go of negative thoughts, which helps them to create positive results in all areas including, health, finances, and relationships.
According to the Release Technique website, the method was developed in 1952 by Lester Levenson, a physicist from New Jersey, who had life threatening illnesses and doctors sent him home to die. While lying in his bed, he discovered the ultimate secret to achieving and maintaining perfect health, effortless wealth, deeply satisfying relationships, as well as a profound sense of peace, happiness and freedom—independent of outer circumstances by developing a method to release all of his negative feelings. When he did, his health miraculously healed and he lived 45 years after the doctors predicted he would live only a few weeks.
The Release Technique research was done by Dr. Andrew Newberg and Therapist Mark Robert Waldman, who head the research activities at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Spirituality and the Mind.
The team's ongoing research with various spiritual and meditation practices is to understand how intense prayer and meditation permanently change numerous structures and functions in the brain which alters one's values and the way reality is perceived. Their research proving spiritual and meditative practices quiet the mind, can be found in their ground-breaking book, “How God Changes Your Brain.”
"Both the training and practice of the Release Technique is very different than the training and practice of other meditation techniques we have studied," says Waldman. "We find it particularly interesting that the areas affected by the Release Technique are similar to the areas affected by meditators engaged in Buddhist practice, Christian Centering Prayer, and cognitively impaired individuals practicing an Asian chanting ritual. Substantial research from meditation practices have shown that stimulation in the above neural areas may have a wide range of benefits, including memory and cognitive enhancement, introception, improved decision-making, and better control in regulating emotions such as anxiety, depression, and irritability."
Larry Crane, Director of the Release Technique and best-selling author of “The Abundance Book,” and "Love Yourself and Let the Other Person Have it Your Way," says releasing can make your mind quieter than the monks in monasteries. Crane is a personal growth expert who has helped thousands of people around the world go free from emotional, physical and financial disorders by releasing.
“ Using the Release Technique, you’ll easily be able to “let go” of any “charged” feelings “on the spot," says Crane. "This includes fears, phobias, anxiety, stress and panic attacks.Life does not have to be a struggle. With the Release Technique, you will naturally enter into the flow state. All resistance and self-doubt will melt away like butter in a microwave! You can easily discharge any emotional agony including anger and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD)."
