TM's Scientifically Proven Health Benefits

Hundreds of published research studies on the TM technique have documented its effectiveness on stress and anxiety, brain function, cardiovascular health and more.

  • TM is the only meditation practice that has been shown to reduce blood pressure…all other meditation techniques, including Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction are not recommended in clinical practice to lower blood pressure.

  • Perhaps its greatest benefit is that it's relatively quick to learn and easy to master. No waiting weeks or months of practice before you see results"

  • According to both the Australian CSIRO and American Heart Association (AHA), the TM technique is the only meditation technique that has been shown to effectively reduce high blood pressure.

  • A 2009 study found Transcendental Meditation helped alleviate stress in college students, while another found it helped reduce blood pressure, anxiety, depression and anger.

Meet the Teacher

Karen House, TM Teacher

Karen House

I learned Transcendental Meditation more than 35 years ago and I have enjoyed the benefits ever since. Along with raising a family in Leicester, I have also enjoyed two careers, first in Education and then more recently in Public Health, as a specialist in prevention, education and training around substance misuse.
I have found Transcendental Meditation to be an essential tool to build my resilience and not just ‘manage' the stress, but actually get rid of it on a daily basis, allowing me to enjoy the challenges of work and also balance this with the rest of my life with friends and family.

What is
Transcendental Meditation?

Transcendental Meditation is a simple technique practised 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably.

It is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over ten million people of all ages, cultures and religions have learned TM.

"It is our birth right to be happy, to be alert ..."

Hugh Jackman talks about TM

What happens when you meditate?

The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness. It is completely different as it involves no concentrating or focusing, no trying to "empty the mind".
