Progressive muscle relaxation

This tool will show you how to release the tension in your body that can build up when you're stressed. It will help relax your body and mind.

With regular practice, you will become more aware of muscle tension and know how to use it to become relaxed.

Note: Progressive Muscle Relaxation is safe for most people, however if you have a serious physical health problem (e.g. high blood pressure) you should seek medical advice first. If you are carrying an injury or have a history of physical pain in a particular part of your body, it is important to avoid straining that area. The most common mistake is to tense too quickly or too much.
