EXERCISE


RAPID EYE MOVEMENT (REM)



This exercise was first developed by Jack Schwarz in the late 50's to help students reduce stress and for relief of Post Traumatic Stress. It increases Body-Mind harmony and/or Non-REM sleep. Jack based it on the Tibetan Eye Chart. More information on the benefits of this exercise can be found in "How to Master the Art of Personal Health", by Jack Schwarz.
