Quasi experimental (Pretest and posttest control group) design was adopted. Non-probability purposive sampling technique was used to select 60 adolescent girls.30 in experimental group and 30 in control group. Informed verbal consent obtained from the adolescent girls. Structured interview schedule was used to collect the demographic variables and modified premenstrual syndrome rating scale was used to assess the level of premenstrual symptoms among adolescent girls. A pretest was conducted for the adolescent girls who are near to the menstrual cycle in both the groups by using modified premenstrual syndrome rating scale. In experimental group the researcher divided the adolescent girls into three groups and intervention (Jacobson progressive muscle relaxation technique) was provided on 5th day after menstruation for 20 days with the duration of 20mts on daily basis. No intervention given for control group. At the 21st day post test was done in both experimental and control group by using the same scale. The study implies that Jacobson’s progressive muscle relaxation technique is a safe, cost effective, painless and easy to practice.
