Subject with reported sleep onset disturbance were given progressive relaxation training, placebo, or no treatment. All these conditions showed significant improvements in daily reported sleep onset over the duration of the study. Between condition effects were limited to relaxation superiority over no treatment on State I sleep, and over placebo on postquestionnaire items and sleep latency reports at 1 yr followup.
