About

Quality of life of people living with HIV is strongly affected by the presence of one or more symptoms, such as sleep problems, fatigue, muscle pain, anxiety and depressive symptoms. Autogenic training has shown positive effects on these symptoms in different populations, but there is very little evidence on the effects of this relaxation technique in people living with HIV.

Full description

The aim of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of a relaxation technique, autogenic training, on the quality of life and the physical and psychological symptoms in people living with HIV.
