Ms. Hopps has produced one of the best relaxation tapes available for use with patients suffering from PTSD symptomatology [anger, anxiety, depression, insomnia]. Her rich voice, the timing of her suggestions, and the minimal use of music make Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques a classic among stress-management materials.

These are wonderful techniques… You’re giving information that’s been around and that’s been used by a lot of people, but you have a wonderful way of simplifying it, directing it, and taking the pretension out of it so it’s very accessible to the user. The imagery on these relaxation tapes is very powerful.

… at the Society of Technical Communicators meeting …the night’s topic was Stress Management for Stressed-Out Professionals…The speaker, Nancy Hopps, is a seasoned professional, having spent the last twenty years developing her techniques and guiding thousands of students, clients and workshop participants. Her presentation was simple, yet quite effective.

Let it go. Since stress is a huge trigger for cravings, learning to deal with it could potentially save you hundreds of calories a day. This will take some practice. You can try deep breathing or visualizing a serene scene on your own, or you can speed things up by buying one of the many CDs that teach progressive muscle relaxation. A good one is Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques, by Nancy Hopps

Nancy’s beautiful CDs [Surgery: Mindful Mending and Healing Affirmations & Harp] were a godsend for me during surgery and treatment.
Mary Buss, Professional Actor/Director, Oklahoma City, OK
Dear Nancy, I am recovering from total hip replacement surgery at an accelerated rate which my surgeon and physical therapist consider amazing. I know a big part of the reason for my healing so quickly was the use your Relax into Healing CD for Surgery. Relaxing and using my energy where it was needed during this potentially stressful experience was imperative. This was my first ever surgery and actually my first stay in a hospital… I’d been plenty apprehensive about it, until I start…

Dear Nancy – I am sending you this check… because a neighbor shared two of your CDs with me recently, as I am going through treatment for breast cancer. I have put them into my iPod, and realize that you won’t receive any income for this use, and so I wanted to reimburse you for your work. I listened to your Radiation CD before I began that treatment, and it allowed me to undertake this process with a much more positive attitude about it than I probably would have otherwise. I am very grateful …

You’ve totally transformed my sleeping! You have a real gift…something about your voice and your words…You’ve made a phenomenal difference in my life!

You have the MOST effective line of soothing tapes/CDs I’ve ever used, and I’ve tried a lot of ’em… The reason I wanted to order the Relaxation/Affirmation CD is because a friend of mine sent me the cassette tape quite a few years ago and it is almost worn out!! It is my favorite relaxation method of all. It always relaxes me into a restful sleep. Keep up the good work.
