This article provides a brief description of several relaxation techniques and their effects on physiological, emotional, cognitive and motor processes. Literature concerned with relaxation in sports is reviewed. On the basis of this review it is concluded that relaxation has some potential, both in helping athletes to cope successfully with stress, and in enhancing self-regulation. However, empirical findings and theoretical explanations are all but complete and some reservedness in the application of relaxation in sport is proposed. Verf.-Referat
