Istituto Scientia - Natural Stress Relief technique
You compare - You decide

Only two techniques seem to be as effective as Transcendental Meditation®:
Chopra's Primordial Sound® meditation and our Natural Stress Relief© technique.
All three are simple mantra meditation methods with no breath-control. (Trademarks).

  • Scientific research has shown that the most beneficial meditation is Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation® (TM®). The striking reduction of stress and anxiety caused by TM is 3 to 4 times greater than that achieved by most meditation or relaxation methods (trademark disclaimer).

  • The first articles about the good effects of TM were published around 1970 in important magazines and scientific journals, including Science, American Journal of Physiology, Scientific American (read more).

  • In 1995 Dr. Deepak Chopra created the Primordial Sound® meditation, that is similar to Maharishi's TM.

  • Unfortunately Chopra's technique is quite expensive ($375.00) and the cost of TM is prohibitive ($1500.00).
  • In 2003 a former TM teacher created the inexpensive Natural Stress Relief© home-course ($25.00) that is available on this website.

  • The Natural Stress Relief technique (NSR) is based on a single basic syllable or "mantra", that is suitable for anybody.

  • (By the way, the original TM, that was taught from 1958 to 1968, was also based on a single mantra: read more).

  • How effective is the Natural Stress Relief technique?

  • Several testimonials show that NSR is very effective and beneficial: practitioners report a remarkable reduction of stress and anxiety.
NSR: sharp increase in skin electrical resistance due to anxiety reduction (Istituto Scientia, 2005)

Reduction of anxiety shown by a sharp increase in skin resistance (NSR - Istituto Scientia 2005)
  • Some scientific research suggests that NSR may be as effective as Maharishi's TM® (of course, research on NSR is still very small if compared to that on TM®: consider that NSR was created on 2003).

  • The Natural Stress Relief technique can be learned at home for $25: instant download (text file + audio file).

  • Since 2006: Natural Stress Relief on Hardcopy Manual + CD at $47 (with email support) by NSR/USA.
