Videos: Relaxation

Quieting the stress response in the body and mind can help decrease pain and improve sleep. This is a useful thing to practice even if you do not see yourself as a highly “stressed” person, because pain and stress work so similarly in the body and brain.

These three videos provide relaxation lessons that last from 5-11 minutes, focusing on breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and body scan.
