New York, NY (PRWEB) March 12, 2011
While science has proven that new love feels like being high on a potent drug, Imago Relationship International teaches couples how to keep those feelings of new love alive.
The same “feel good” hormones that couples experience with new love are also released with exercise (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/10/14/health/main6957274.shtml?source=related_story&tag=related ). While scientists are working on harnessing this “rush” for relief of chronic pain, Imago Relationship International focuses on teaching couples how to progress to the next stages in their relationships, to create and ensure emotional intimacy—the next phase of connected love.
“The centers of the brain that bring pleasure or pain relief are triggered when people fall in love. When the newness of first love wears off, couples invariably become disappointed. This is where Imago therapy comes in," explains Tim Atkinson, Executive Director, who adds that Imago therapists train couples how to develop communication techniques, which leads to that deep connection people want.
“Let's face it. A relationship is work. But it doesn’t have to be grueling or painful. Once couples learn the steps necessary to find bliss and longevity in relationships, the payoff is worth the time investment. Because these are skills not taught in school, nor usually within ones family of origin, we will bridge that gap by offering couples a free teleconference, which will be presented by Imago therapists Donna and David Bowman on March 16th , 8-9pm EST."
Attendees will learn compassion, empathy, and how to connect with their partners through inspiring, humorous, and personal stories by these presenters. To register for this free teleconference, visit http://tinyurl.com/imago16march, and Imago will send you the call in phone number.
Imago Relationships International helps couples restore connection. Weekend couples workshops are available worldwide. Imago has certified over 2000 couples therapists to guide couples through a process which was developed by co-founders Harville Hendrix, PhD and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD. Imago first came to public attention through the New York Times best seller, “Getting the Love You Want,” Oprah Winfrey dubbed Hendrix “The Marriage Whisperer.” Calling him “her favorite therapist” Oprah has invited him on her show 17 times. Couples can start learning how Imago creates a better relationship for free, by visiting http://www.GettingTheLoveYouWant.com and test-driving some online tools and learning experiences.
