Lowering Blood Pressure using Mind–Body practices

The Relaxation Response (RR) concept was introduced by Dr. Herbert Benson, founder of the Benson-Henry Institute at the Massachusetts General Hospital. RR is produced during practices such as yoga, meditation, Tai Chi, Qi Gong or mild exercises. While at the Harvard School of Medicine in the 60s, Dr Benson discovered that mental stress can affect blood pressure.

Scientific evidence proves that using Mind-Body practice not only reduce the Blood Pressure but affect the molecular structure of our blood cells responsible for this mechanism.
