  • Edmund Jacobson | Progressive Muscle Relaxation

    This thread is for the purposes of compiling resources, articles, links and other references for Edmund Jacobson, MD, PhD, the founder of Progressive Muscle Relaxation.

    I have posted other links, articles, etc... about his work elsewhere in the forum but this thread is what I'll use as a "master" thread.

    Here are a few links to some relevant sites to learn a bit and I'll post more little by little:
