It seems that autogenic relaxation is also often referred to as autogenic therapy or autogenic training, which may help you find more information on techniques. 

You can look up any of these terms in Rasmussen's reference database Credo Reference - Credo lets you search 100 reference books (subject dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc) at the same time. 

Gale Virtual Reference Library also lets you search several reference books at the same time, and you will find great information on autogenic therapy/training there.

In addition, look at the fact sheet "Relaxation Techniques for Health: An Introduction" from the National Institutes of Health site, Medline:

Finally, have a look in the Consumer Health Complete [Graphical] database (from the eResources), a section from a book on Asthma gives a nice description of autogenic training.
