The present study aimed at comparing the efficacy of two relaxation techniques on stressed females.30 highly stressed female subjects were selected and randomly assigned to three groups (N=10 each) (a) group 1 receiving galvanic skin resistance biofeedback, (b) group 2 receiving progressive muscle relaxation training, (c) group 3 control.
