Progressive Muscle Relaxation

Progressive Muscle Relaxation
by Dr. Kimberly Vay, LPC, Intensively-Trained Adult/Adolescent DBT Therapist
“Progressive muscle relaxation is a great skill to use when you are experiencing a sense of anxiety, distress, or uncertainty. Imagine continuously squeezing all the juice out of a lemon…by tightening this muscle group, you’ll be able to identify the difference between tension and relaxation. These homemade stress balls are a rather straightforward mechanism that can be used to ‘squeeze’ the tension away.”
