Meditation is the practice of centering one’s self to a higher consciousness of their minds and bodies through breathing, concentration and relaxation. It is often misconstrued as being exclusively used in tandem with the practice of various religions. In reality, many people use it to build internal energy and to be more aware of their bodies and clearing their hectic minds, without connecting the practice to any form of religion. Although it is interconnected to spirituality, it is mainly the practice of quiet contemplation and has many health benefits. Historically, meditation has been used to help with blood pressure, heart conditions, anxiety and depression.
At TJF we believe that meditation helps our patients in their endeavour to health and wellness as the practice has a calming and soothing effect. Many accounts from people that choose to practice meditation confirm results in joy, peace, calmness and positivity.
