Abstract: This paper describes the use of a simple and effective relaxation method by patients with serious medical problems. The method consists of muscular relaxation followed by the use of a pleasant, relaxing memory as a center on which attention may be focused with minimal effort, in a meditation-like manner. This method appears to be a useful adjunct to the management of patients with serious medical problems.
