Relaxation Exercises

Here at CAPS, like other counseling centers we offer audio recordings of relaxation exercises on our web site.  The following two exercises are freely available for use by anyone interested. 

You can listen to either exercise directly from this Web site, or you can download the exercises onto your computer. The recordings of these exercises are not copyrighted—they can be used or copied or recorded to a CD freely.

To download the exercises as MP3 files, click here for the Progressive Relaxation Exercise (8MB), or here for the Combination Relaxation Exercise (12MB). To save the file onto your computer right click on the links and select save target as. Here are some suggestions for using these exercises
