Summary: Of 58 patients with far-advanced cancer who were referred for relaxation therapy, 36 were responsive. A state of psychophysical relaxation which resulted in greater tranquility and decreased pain was induced and, with practice, the patients were able to reestablish a state of relaxation independent of the therapist.
