Asthma, headaches, hypertension, acute and chronic pain, postpartum stress, postoperative stress and the side effects of chemotherapy for cancer, are some of the physical problems that can be greatly enhanced through deep-muscle relaxation. Psychological problems that will definitely benefit from relaxation are anxiety disorders, depression, sleeping problems, nightmares, post-traumatic stress disorder and temper tantrums.
Progressive relaxation and body scanning are techniques that could be used by anybody interested in enhancing their overall well being. Medical practitioners and therapist, to help patients teach themselves deep muscle relaxation at home, can also use it.
