1. Relaxation techniques for pain management in labour. (PubMed)

Relaxation techniques for pain management in labour. Many women would like to avoid pharmacological or invasive methods of pain management in labour and this may contribute to the popularity of complementary methods of pain management. This review examined currently available evidence on the use of relaxation therapies for pain management in labour. This is an update of a review first published in 2011.To examine the effects of mind-body relaxation techniques for pain management in labour (...) ), and reference lists of retrieved studies.Randomised controlled trials (including quasi randomised and cluster trials) comparing relaxation methods with standard care, no treatment, other non-pharmacological forms of pain management in labour or placebo.Two review authors independently assessed trials for inclusion and risk of bias, extracted data and checked them for accuracy. We attempted to contact study authors for additional information. We assessed evidence quality with GRADE methodology.This review

6. Meditation techniques <i>v</i>. relaxation therapies when treating anxiety: a meta-analytic review. (PubMed)

Meditation techniques v. relaxation therapies when treating anxiety: a meta-analytic review. To what extent meditation techniques (which incorporate practices to regulate attention, construct individual values, or deconstruct self-related assumptions), are more or less effective than relaxation therapy in the treatment of anxiety, is not clear. The aim of this study was to examine the effectiveness of meditation compared to relaxation in reducing anxiety. A systematic review from PubMed (...) spectrum of meditation practices to treat different anxiety disorders, including independent studies to avoid researcher allegiance, is needed if we are to have a precise idea of the potential of these techniques compared to relaxation therapy.

7. The impact of muscle relaxation techniques on the quality of life of cancer patients, as measured by the FACT-G questionnaire. (PubMed)

The impact of muscle relaxation techniques on the quality of life of cancer patients, as measured by the FACT-G questionnaire. Patients with cancer frequently suffer from emotional distress, characterized by psychological symptoms such as anxiety or depression. The presence of psychological symptoms combined with the complex nature of oncology processes can negatively impact patients' quality of life. We aimed to determine the impact of a relaxation protocol on improving quality of life (...) as measured by the FACT-G. Our findings support a previous assumption that complementary techniques (including relaxation techniques) are effective in improving the quality of life of patients with cancer.

8. The Attention Training Technique improves Children's ability to delay gratification: A controlled comparison with progressive relaxation. (PubMed)

The Attention Training Technique improves Children's ability to delay gratification: A controlled comparison with progressive relaxation. The ability to delay gratification at a young age is a predictor of psychological, cognitive, health, and academic later-life outcomes. This study aimed to extend earlier research and explore whether a metacognitive intervention, Wells' (1990) Attention Training Technique (ATT), could improve young children's ability to delay gratification compared (...) to an active-control (Progressive Muscle Relaxation: PMR), and no-intervention group. One hundred and one children aged 5-6 years old were recruited from schools. Classes of children were randomly allocated to receive the ATT, PMR or no-intervention and tested at pre- and post-intervention on measures of delay of gratification (the Marshmallow Test) and verbal inhibition (Day/Night Task). Results showed that, even when covariates were controlled for, following ATT, children delayed gratification

Intraoperative relaxed muscle positioning technique results in a tertiary Center for Thyroid Orbitopathy Related Strabismus. Previous techniques resulted with low rates of successful fusion after the surgeries and high necessity of additional surgeries in the treatment of thyroid orbitopathy related strabismus. In this study, reviewing the results of our patients who had surgical correction with relaxed muscle positioning technique due to thyroid orbitopathy related strabismus to evaluate (...) the effectiveness of the surgery was aimed.The medical records of 8 patients who had surgical correction with intraoperative relaxed muscle positioning (IRMP) technique were studied retrospectively. The extent of strabismus was determined with prism cover test both at near and distance. The extent of recession was determined by marking the natural place of the released tendon during the primary position. The muscle then sutured to the globe at this precise point.Seven eyes (87.5%) of 8 patients had orthophoria

11. Using relaxation techniques to improve sleep during naps (PubMed)

Using relaxation techniques to improve sleep during naps Insufficient sleep is a common occurrence in occupational settings (e.g. doctors, drivers, soldiers). The resulting sleep debt can lead to daytime sleepiness, fatigue, mood disorder, and cognitive deficits as well as altered vascular, immune and inflammatory responses. Short daytime naps have been shown to be effective at counteracting negative outcomes related to sleep debt with positive effects on daytime sleepiness and performance (...) after a normal or restricted night of sleep in laboratory settings. However, the environmental settings in the workplace and the emotional state of workers are generally not conducive to beneficial effects. Here, we tested whether relaxation techniques (RT) involving hypnosis might increase total sleep time (TST) and/or deepen sleep. In this study, eleven volunteers (aged 37-52) took six early-afternoon naps (30 min) in their occupational workplace, under two different conditions: control 'Naps

15. Preference for different relaxation techniques by COPD patients: comparison between six techniques (PubMed)

Preference for different relaxation techniques by COPD patients: comparison between six techniques A review of the effectiveness of relaxation techniques for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients has shown inconsistent results, but studies have varied in terms of technique and outcome measures.To determine patient preference for different relaxation techniques.Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients were presented with six techniques via a DVD and asked to rate the techniques (...) in terms of effectiveness, rank in order of likely use, and comment.Patients differed in the technique preferred and reason for that preference, but the most commonly preferred technique both for effectiveness and ease of use was "thinking of a nice place" followed by progressive relaxation and counting. Familiarity and ease of activity were commonly given reasons for preference.Rather than providing patients with a single technique that they might find difficult to implement, these results suggest
