There are two types of visualization which will both help you be able to relax more easily. The first type is where you concentrate on pleasant scenes. They can be scenes from your past or you can just make them up. Try to remember every little detail about a past vacation and it will possibly let you relive it or just create your own. The second type is where you try to imagine your pain. An example is you might imagine that your swollen knee is bright red and, after you create this, you try to change it.
