Muscle Relaxation Training

English version
Ever since the Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) technique was developed, in the first half of the last century, it has become a scientific proven standard method in therapeutic, clinical and health care environments. Progressive Muscle Relaxation has been taught and applied all over Europe and the US and strongly aims at health maintenance and disease prevention. It supports the immune system and reduces health related bodily problems as a consequence of physical or mental strain.
The exercise units are easily understood and carried out by everyone, whilst requiring a qualified instructor to guide the learner. During practice the learners focus their attention on certain muscle groups which are repeatedly contracted and loosened. After one exercise is applied to a group of muscles, the learner continues with the next group until the whole body is deeply relaxed. The sequence of the applied muscles is set and mostly standardized. The responsibility of the instructor is inherent only in telling the learner which muscles to focus on, when to contract and when to loosen them. In comparison with other methods like Autogenic Training or Hypnosis, Progressive Muscle Relaxation is completely abstained from suggestion. One major aim lies in the experience of a deep relaxation while being awake.
