Most meditation techniques have been around in one form or another for centuries. Progressive Muscle Relaxation is the exception to this rule. It was developed by modern psychologists to induce the deeply relaxed state that has been shown to undue the negative effects of stress on our bodies and minds. This basic relaxation exercise has been scientifically proven to effectively reduce anxiety and is used in modern clinical settings to treat a variety of common medical conditions ranging from chronic pain to heart disease.  You may also discover it makes a great natural sleep aid!  You can learn a lot more about how to relax by taking our Online Mindfulness Course.
