During a PMR session, you systematically relax different muscle groups in your body. This process helps release stress you are holding onto as physical and mental tension, allowing your body to enter a state of deep relaxation. When guided through a session by your therapist, it’s just a case of understanding what being said to you and following along to get the best out of the treatment. Once you have learned the technique, you can easily do this by yourself or purchase a recording of it to do before you sleep. By incorporating PMR into your bedtime routine, you can signal to your body and mind that it’s time to unwind and prepare for sleep. Waters W et al (2010) offers evidence of this in a study of people with insomnia. If it works on insomniacs, it might well work for you too.
