Progressive Muscle Relaxation Script

worksheet

Progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) is a powerful technique with long-term benefits for stress and anxiety. When practiced regularly, the positive effects of PMR can become generalized. This means that the reduced levels of stress and anxiety will last well beyond the practice period.

Our Progressive Muscle Relaxation Script can be used to guide clients through the exercise. A single PMR practice session can be relaxing, but to gain long-term benefits, it'll be best to work with your client to plan a practice schedule. Ideally, ask your clients to practice for 10 minutes every day.
