Relaxation for cancer patients
Relaxation loosens, calms and gives peace, so that the body's vital energy can flow freely. It means the letting go of effort and stilling the mind and body as a form of release.
There is no correct response to a relaxation session; the mind and body will react in an individual way, but patience and persistence are needed to let the senses and the body experience the relaxation. It must be a passive, gentle exercise, not forced. It is not a test to be passed or failed.
Gradually, the interruptions will get fewer, and relaxation will deepen as the chosen exercises and techniques become part of the daily routine, so that in stressful situations relaxation not tension will occur.
