Battle-stressed warriors try meditation to ease anxiety
At the Warrior Relaxation Response Center, the road to recovery is paved with creature comforts.
Plush couches, soothing green walls and dimmed lights create a welcoming environment. Fountains and top-of-the-line massage chairs further set the conditions for solitary reflection.
In an unconventional approach to the demons of war, the newly established center at 2535 Airport Road encourages combat veterans to confront their battle stress with self-guided meditation and prayer.
“You cannot be relaxed and anxious at the same time,” said Antoine Johnson, summarizing the center’s benefits.
