The GSR2 sits in the palm of the hand. Feedback includes variable pitch tone. As tension increases, tone increases, as tension decreases, tone decreases. The goal, when using the GSR2 for relaxation, is to focus on the feedback tone and try to get it lower and lower, or just listen to it in the background as you focus on your breathing.
The GSR2 provides a relative measure of skin conductance, as opposed to an absolute measure. For relaxation purposes, one only needs an indication of whether a physiological signal is going up or down.

Could the GSR2 be placed on the skin over a muscle group such as the external obliques, to assist a person in recreating an awareness of the muscle location as well as strengthening/ relaxing the muscle?

The GSR2 cannot be used for EMG training. You may be interested in the Myotrac Electromyograph. It is designed specifically for this purpose.
