Stressing & Relaxing
What To Do Before
Starting A Relaxation Program
Relaxation Techniques Are Generally
Considered Safe For Healthy People
According to National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health NCCAM, if you have a medical condition, talk to your health professional before starting a technique that involves more than deep breathing.
If you have heart disease, epilepsy, a psychiatric condition or a history of abuse or trauma, talk to your health professional before starting any approach.
Relaxation techniques are often used as part of a treatment plan and not as the only approach for potentially serious health conditions. Never use a relaxation technique to replace conventional medical care or to postpone seeing your healthcare professional about pain or any other medical condition.
