University of Minnesota Research Project

The University of Minnesota Occupational Therapy Department conducted Effects of Meditative Movements™ for Persons with Chronic Health Conditions research study from June to Sept, 2016 at Pathways, Mpls.

Chronic diseases and conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems.

The prevention and management of chronic health conditions is a major challenge for the current health care system. There is growing evidence that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) have beneficial effects for managing the many symptoms of chronic health conditions. Use of CAM to improve health and well-being has increased over the years (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2007). American adults are most likely to use CAM for problems such as stress, fatigue, and pain.

The feasibility research study concluded that Meditative Movements may be effective in reducing anxiety, depression, and fatigue, while improving emotional well-being and functional well-being for persons with chronic health conditions. The findings suggest that Meditative Movements may be used as an alternative and complementary therapy or rehabilitation program for persons with chronic health conditions. Another research study is planned for spring of 2017 to offer more conclusive evidence.

When asked what was most beneficial, participants responded.

  • More calm
  • Better sleep
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Feel more positive about self, less negative attitude
  • Affirmations are meaningful and valuable
  • Feel more centered
  • More confidence and faith in the future
  • Breathing more correctly, more energy
  • Improved self esteem, more courageous
  • Less tired
  • Affirmations helped improve self-acceptance
  • Movements have reduced chronic pain

This is the full presented public project research findings.
