Several kinds of mind-body practices may relieve stress, pain, anxiety and depression, and promote healing. We use different approaches that are closely related. They have been described as "different doors that lead to the same room." One of these may appeal to you more than another.
Meditation is an ancient concentration practice that develops calmness and insight.
Biofeedback uses electronic monitors to help you learn how to use your mind to affect and change specific body functions.
Stress reduction and relaxation programs combine many of these techniques along with movement meditations such as yoga, tai chi and qi gong.
Yoga, tai chi and qi gong use gentle, precise movements coupled with breathing and concentration to exercise the body and calm and energize the mind.
Maybe meditation isn't so mysterious after all. Neuroscientists have found that meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, recorded the brain waves of stressed-out employees of a high-tech firm in Madison, Wisconsin. The subjects were split randomly into two groups, 25 people were asked to learn meditation over eight weeks, and the remaining 16 were left alone as a control group.
All participants had their brain waves scanned three times during the study: at the beginning of the experiment, when meditation lessons were completed eight weeks later and four months after that. The researchers found that the meditators showed a pronounced shift in activity to the left frontal lobe. In other words, they were calmer and happier than before.
