A meta-analysis* of all available physiological research on the Transcendental Meditation program found that the practice of this technique produces a state of deep rest compared to control conditions, as measured by:
∙ reduced respiration rate
∙ reduced basal skin conductance (increased skin resistance), and
∙ reduced plasma lactate

Reference: American Psychologist 42: 879–881, 1987.
