TM Practice and Trait Anxiety: A Meta-Analysis    
Effects of TM practice on trait anxiety: A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
A new meta-analysis published today in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found Transcendental Meditation has a large effect on reducing trait anxiety for people with high anxiety. The article covered 16 randomized-controlled trials, which included 1295 subjects from varied populations. TM was compared with various control groups: treatment-as-usual, individual and group psychotherapy, and various relaxation techniques. Studies on high stress groups -- veterans suffering from PTSD and prison inmates -- showed dramatic reductions in anxiety.
