Stress relief that’s proven effective

Reduced psychological stress

The TM® technique is twice as effective
for stress and anxiety as other

Reference: Journal of Clinical Psychology

Gary Kaplan, M.D.
NYU Medical School

“People who come to me
for relief from stress and
stress-related disorders

need an effective meditation that’s quickly mastered and produces consistent results.

“Though TM is a mental technique, due to the mind-body relationship the practice has extensive physiological effects. TM allows the mind to settle very deeply inward—in a natural way. TM teachers call this ‘effortless transcending.’ It’s what sets TM apart and why the technique is so beneficial for mind and body, right from the start.” 

Rosenthal, M.D.
Medical School

 No other ‘stress management technique’ has
anywhere close to this amount of hard data in
support of its claims to reduce stress.

The deep state of rest attained during the TM technique is easily reached and experienced by both new and long-term meditators. The experience is confirmed by research studies which found reductions in heart rate, breath rate, and stress hormone levels during TM practice. Repeated experience of deep rest through the TM technique normalizes the stress response and restores wellness. Meditators find that TM practice leads to less stress and increased inner happiness.

Stress affects mind and body

  • Stress can take the joy out of life
  • Stress shouldn’t be accepted as the norm
  • An effective stress management
    technique helps prevent health problems
  • Reducing stress enhances wellness

“Before TM, I felt a lot of anxiety about the future. I was restless and didn’t sleep well. Since starting TM, I’m much calmer and don’t concern myself as much with what is going to happen tomorrow. There’s an ease that wasn’t there before, and I sleep much better.”

“I tried different meditation techniques. Meditating was difficult until I learned TM. I like the ease of it. It’s such a stress release. No matter how frustrating the day, I meditate and then feel refreshed, ready to go.”
Erika Budson

Farmington Hills, MI

“Transcendental Meditation cured me of a 12-year sleeping disorder, and that was just the beginning. I now have endless amounts of energy and I feel such happiness. TM has been the most amazing thing.”

“TM has brought me a calmness, peacefulness, and energy that is priceless. I experience inner quietness in all aspects of my life, a sense of harmony inside. My life is fulfilled in ways I never knew it could be.”

“I'm a special ed teacher—the most stressful job in education. TM recharges and nourishes me physically, spiritually, and mentally. I end the day feeling as good as I started—enthusiastic, positive, and committed to what I do. TM allows me to fully engage.”
Robert Steve Martin
Wilmington, NC

“I was interested in the TM program but I was skeptical at the same time. The power of the TM meditation—it really came out fast, and it was surprising to me. Having that inner peace after meditation really emboldened me to deal with things that I’d been just kind of stuffing away. To be able to have relief from agitation, have relief from anger, frustration, sleeplessness, alcoholism, drug addiction… that’s huge.”
Sgt. James Thrasher
U.S. Marine Corps

“A year and a half ago my anxiety was so great, I barely felt like showing my face in public. Since I learned TM, anytime I leave the house, I feel a fearless sense of mastery of any social situation. TM has helped my self confidence by putting into perspective that all beings are worthwhile, including myself.”
Alex Ledford
College student
Greensboro, NC

“TM allows me to start the day fresh, on the right side of the bed. After a long workday it’s the ultimate refreshment. It abolishes stress and I’m able to totally rejuvenate. I’m more friendly, outgoing, and confident. Social anxiety is a thing of the past. TM is an absolute game changer.”
