The Stress Reliever - Relaxation Therapy

You must trigger your body's natural calming response to combat stress effectively. Relaxation yoga in Tulsa by teaching how to breathe deep, visualization, meditation, and yoga are techniques that can help.

Identifying the most effective relaxation technique for you

Many of us associate relaxation with plopping on the sofa and spacing out in front of the television at the end of a long day, yet this does nothing to mitigate stress’s adverse effects. Instead, you must trigger your body's natural relaxation response, a state of deep rest that reduces tension, slows breathing and heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and restores equilibrium to your body and mind. Relaxation exercises such as deep breathing, meditation, rhythmic movement, yoga, and tai chi will help you achieve this.

While you can pay for a skilled massage or acupuncture session, most relaxation methods can be performed on your own or with the help of a free audio download or a low-cost smartphone app. It's important to note, though, that there is no one-size-fits-all relaxation technique. Each of us is special. The strategy that resonates with you, suits your lifestyle, and can concentrate your mind to evoke the relaxation response is the one to use. That means finding the technique(s) that work best for you can require some trial and error.

Breathing Technique. Deep breathing is a simple but effective relaxation technique that focuses on absolute, cleansing breaths. It's simple to read, can be done almost anywhere, and is an effective way to reduce stress quickly. Deep breathing is also an essential part of many other relaxation techniques, and it can be combined with other calming factors like aromatherapy and music. Those two could be relaxation therapy.

Practicing Deep Breathing

  • Sit back in a comfortable position with your back straight. One hand should be on your chest, while the other should be on your stomach.
  • Inhale deeply through your nose. Your hand should rise from your stomach. Your chest hand can move very little.
  • Breath out as much air as you can through your mouth while squeezing your abdominal muscles. When you exhale, the hand on your stomach should reach in, but the other hand should move very little.
  • Breath in deeply through your nose and exhale deeply through your mouth. Breath in deeply enough to cause your lower belly to rise and fall. When you exhale, count slowly.

If sitting up makes it difficult to breathe from your belly, try lying down. Place a small book on your stomach, and breathe so that the book rises and falls with each inhales and exhalation.

Practicing Muscle Relaxation

If you have a history of muscle spasms, back pain, or other severe injuries that may be exacerbated by tensing muscles, talk to your doctor first.

Begin at your feet and work your way up to your face, concentrating on just tensing the muscles that are supposed to be tension.

  • Remove your shoes and loosen your clothes to get comfortable.
  • Take a few minutes to breathe slowly and deeply in and out. Move your focus to your right foot when you're ready. Take a few moments to notice how it feels.
  • Squeeze the muscles in your right foot as tightly as possible. Keep for a total of ten seconds.
  • Your foot should be at ease. Concentrate on how your foot’s stress is dissipating and how your foot feels when it becomes limp and loose.
  • For a moment, stay in this comfortable state, breath deeply and slowly.
