Relaxation Techniques

Relaxation techniques include a number of practices such as progressive relaxation, guided imagery, self-hypnosis and deep breathing exercises. The goal is similar in all, to produce the body’s natural relaxation response, characterized by slower breathing, lower blood pressure and a feeling of increased well-being.

 

Learning and practicing a relaxation technique can help you to control anxiety and breathe more easily. Relaxation can be helpful in managing a variety of health conditions, including anxiety associated with illnesses or medical procedures, insomnia and chemotherapy induced nausea.
