Benefits of Meditation
According to researchers at Harvard Medical School, long-term practitioners of relaxation methods such as yoga and meditation had more ''disease-fighting genes'', compared to those who practiced no form of relaxation.In a state of deep relaxation, the tension gets released from the body and the physical level and thoughts seize to exist.
''The effect won't be achieved by lounging round in an everyday way, nor can you force yourself to relax. You can only really achieve it by learning a specific technique such as self-hypnosis, guided imagery or meditation'' says Jake Toby, hypnotherapist from London.
On the biological level, the cells and various organs enjoy a state of rest, enjoyment and physical renewal. The heart slows down, blood circulation flows freely.
