Progressive Muscle Relaxation
ACT Therapist & Spiritual Life Coach
Progressive muscle relaxation is an exercise that relaxes your mind and body, as well as soothes your nervous system. We will do this by progressively working through certain muscle groups of the body, by tensing and relaxing these muscles. We will tense each muscle, but without too much of a strain, for around 5 seconds. We then release that tension, appreciating what it feels like to relax. Please be mindful of any injuries or parts of your body that are in pain, or susceptible to pain.
