Abstract: 

The effectiveness of progressive relaxation training in reducing Chronic Tension Headache (CTH) was assessed in the present research. A sample of 37 CTH patients who had been referred to psychiatric or neurology clinics in Kashan randomly selected through 3 mounts and were put into an experimental group (n=17) and a control group (n=20). The experimental group received medication and progressive relaxation training. The control group received only medication. All participants for one week prior to intervention and one week after intervention completed the headache diary including its frequency, rate of intensity and duration. An analysis of covariance showed that medication accompanied by progressive relaxation training led to a lower frequency, intensity, and duration of headaches than did the use of medication alone.
