Relaxation therapy is a set of techniques and practices designed to help individuals reduce stress, manage anxiety, and improve overall well-being. The goal of relaxation therapy is to help individuals develop the skills and habits necessary to manage physical and emotional tension, and to promote a state of calm and relaxation.
Relaxation therapy may include a variety of techniques, including deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, and mindfulness meditation, among others. These techniques aim to help individuals become more aware of physical sensations and to release physical and emotional tension, promoting a state of calm and relaxation.
Relaxation therapy can be performed in a variety of settings, including in individual or group therapy sessions, or as self-practice at home. It is often used in combination with other forms of therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, to help individuals manage stress and anxiety and to improve their overall well-being.
