Progressive Muscle Relaxation

Learning how to relax your body not only feels good, but it can help promote health also. Using progressive muscle relaxation techniques can train your body to reduce pain sensations and to reduce anxiety levels. If you are having a rough day then using these techniques can assist you tremendously.
When you learn these techniques, you start slowly. The goal is to start by isolating each specific muscle group in your body, so you can tense it, then relax it and breathe. This process is repeated throughout the entire body including small muscle groups to help promote soothing feelings and stress relieving mannerisms. By the end of the first session your body already feels a difference. Learn how to do this so you can apply this to your everyday life and reduce your pain and stress levels.
