Want to better learn how to relax and find some stress relief? Stress Reduction-Audio contains three guided relaxation techniques to guide you through the process of becoming more fully relaxed. Be sure to try Stress Reduction-Audio-Free first, to see if the techniques help you to become more relaxed. Some people also find these techniques helpful for getting to sleep at night. Additionally, the app includes a number of peaceful nature sounds that may be used to help fall asleep. This full version lets you play these sounds for up to 8 full hours.

The Full version downloads the full audio files to your device rather than streaming them from a remote server each time you run the app, and does not contain ads.

As a clinical psychologist and hobby Android developer, I wanted to combine the two skills to write an app that may be of benefit to many. The world is a stressful place, and one component of coping with that stress is learning how to more fully relax. I have included three relaxation strategies that I frequently use with my psychotherapy clients.

Two relaxation techniques are included along with a peaceful and relaxing background music.

1. Relax and Breathe - Walks you through relaxing all the muscles in your body combined with a deep breathing exercise. (8 minutes)

2. Relax and Visualize - This technique is a mildly self-hypnotic procedure that includes relaxing your muscles, mind, and visualizing a peaceful scene. This is often a favorite. (15 minutes)

3. Contrast Technique - This technique has you tense your muscles first and then relax them. Some people find this technique works when some of the others don't. (15 minutes)

I include three techniques, because some people find they can more effectively utilize one technique over the other. Also, having one with a shorter play time helps when you need to relax, but are under time pressure.

If you have any problems with this app, don't hesitate to contact me at support@mindware.mobi.

Enjoy, and I hope this brings you a little peace in a hectic world.

Note: These techniques are not intended to treat any emotional or physical condition. Rather, this app is intended for people who want to learn one of many techniques for coping with the stress of everyday living. If recommended by a psychotherapist, it may be used as a part of a larger treatment program.

    I used the free version for wks & recently bought the full version so I could change & control length of play. I'd definitely give a higher rating if the timer hadn't quit working. I set it for 1 hr, wake 5 or 6 hrs later & it's still going. The only sound I personally find calming is the ocean waves, but it is a great track.

    Really helps me to fall asleep naturally, would really recommend it. Sometimes doesn't work if my wifi signal isn't good but that's not a fault of the app.

    I suffer from stress-related hypertension and have anger-management issues, both helped by weekly psychotherapy; but these techniques are EXACTLY the types of methods that my therapist has been talking about. This is the best app I've found to use to help me between sessions, and will work for me in the future.
