After practicing in an armchair, the same procedure is repeated while the patient is sitting in an ordinary chair. Then you can let the patient sit in an office chair by a desk and perform various activities that are natural to that situation, such as writing, typing, and making phone calls. These three components usually cover one session and during the next session you proceed by teaching the patient to relax while standing, and doing the same activities as while sitting, except for the use of their legs. Finally, the patient should practice being relaxed while walking. In this situation it is an advantage to have a fairly long corridor to practice in.
