Muscle Relaxation Exercises by Rita Schulte
In this audio exercise I will be teaching you how to do cue-controlled progressive muscle relaxation. It has been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of tension and anxiety. I will be leading you through a series that will teach you to relax voluntary muscles by tensing and then relaxing each one. It will help you to distinguish between a state of tension, and relaxation, while allowing muscle tension to become a cue for you to relax. You can practice this at night while lying in bed along with deep breathing.
