Guided Relaxation Exercises

Having a child in the hospital can be a very stressful and emotional time. Stress creates tension in the body. Relaxation provides a peaceful, pleasant and refreshing time to restore a state of well-being to your body.

These video and audio recordings are focused on helping parents and caregivers relax so that you can take care of yourself as well.

You’ll listen to a psychologist guide you through simple relaxation exercises to use your mind and imagination to create a more peaceful and restful state of mind, taking you away from the stress and tension of your day.

Watch or listen at your child’s bedside, at home, or wherever you can find a quiet moment for yourself.
