Muscle relaxation and breathing techniques are a simple way for your child to get in touch with their body and gently release tension from their muscles and mind. These include meditation, biofeedback and progressive muscle relaxation, which can help your child reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and tension, activate relaxation response and enhance their sense of well-being.

These are easy techniques that, once learned, can be used by your child on their own to reduce their reactions to stressful situations and help calm themselves. This self-regulation is a great boost to self esteem and is a lifelong skill. Feel free to contact us and learn how to help your child through these techniques.
