"What a lovely program. As you know, much of my work focuses on reducing stress and anxiety. I am using The Relaxation Station to supplement the work that I do in relaxation and self-control with children and adults. It can be used in classrooms, at home, and in treatment programs for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. It’s so soothing and beautiful. Many, many thanks."
— Dr. June Groden, Director, Groden Center, Providence, R.I.

"I found it absolutely invaluable in working with one of my students who has several anxiety-related issues including school phobia. Although he was well versed in how to use breathing techniques to calm himself, he found it difficult to do at school until he watched and listened to the Relaxation Station. We have a number of challenging cases, including students who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders who will benefit from this film. The beautiful images, calming music and soothing voice helps young people to remember the process of physical relaxation. You have given me a most valuable tool to use to help my students to improve the quality of their lives."
— Susan J. Hopkins, M.A., LLP, School Psychologist, Redner Elementary School, Ypsilanti, MI
