Progressive Muscle Relaxation or 'PMR' is a deep relaxation method that can be traced back to the 1930's. It will most certainly be used in at least one of your sessions with me and is also great to practice at home as part of your 'self-hypnosis' routine.
It's a simple as it is effective and involves slowly and methodically relaxing each part of your body in turn to bring on a deep sense of relaxation and calm. This method can be practiced for 10-20 minutes each day and is very beneficial if you have problems falling asleep.
You can start by tensing each muscle group on the inhale and letting go on the exhale, it also helps to start either with your head or your toes so you work either up or down the body.
