While this represents a considerable saving of time, the procedures outlined in this section are not designed simply to allow relaxation to occur more quickly.

RELAXATION THROUGH RECALL The recall procedure differs markedly from all of the preceding procedures, because it does not require the client to create muscle tension. It does require full use of the client’s increased ability to focus on tension and relaxation, however. Before beginning the initial recall session, the client should be fully informed about the procedures to come. The therapist should be certain that the client understands these procedures and is ready to attempt them. Relaxation with recall employs the same four muscle groups used in the previous procedure: both arms as the first group; face and neck as the second; chest, shoulders, back, and stomach as the third; and legs and feet as the fourth.

Whether problems are brought up by the client spontaneously or uncovered by the therapist through this questioning, it is important that some resolution of the problems is agreed on. If an alternative tensing strategy is required, this should be determined. If at some point the therapist did not communicate adequately to the client, this should be clarified. The point of delineating these concerns is to create a list of problems to be eliminated so that the relaxation procedure can become routine and trouble-free.
