ABOUT PMR & CONTENT OF THE APP
Edward Jacobson's Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) - also called Deep Muscle Relaxation (DMR) - is a scientifically recognized relaxation method that helps to get into a state of deep relaxation through muscle tension and relaxation. PMR is a - scientifically proven - very effective relaxation method. It is recommended by doctors and therapists for many symptoms that are mostly stress-related, such as:

• tensions
• migraine or headache
• inner unrest
• sleep disorders
• back pain / pain
• states of excitement,
• anxiety and panic attacks
• high blood pressure
• psychosomatic complaints
• burnout
• stress and much more

With regular practice, you will always find it easier to get into deeper states of relaxation. Once you have enough practice with the long form of PMR (Basic Form: 17 Muscle Groups), you can switch to the short forms with 7 and 4 muscle groups and finally to the Mental form: Body Scan. Then you can relax your body even mentally.

MUSIC TRACKS & NATURE SOUNDS
For all exercises, you can select among 5 relaxation music tracks and 22 nature sounds. The volume can be adjusted individually. If desired, the music & sounds can also be used alone (without speech) to relax or fall asleep.

FOR SLEEPING OR RELAXING
All exercises can be used to fall asleep or to relax.

DURATION OF TENSION & PAUSES FOR RELAXATION
Set your preferred duration of tension and relaxation between the muscle groups.

TIMER FUNCTION
After the end of the exercise an unlimited time for the music and sounds can be set so that the soft music / sounds will deepen your relaxation.

Note for Android 8 (single devices ≤ Android 7):
