Hundreds of published research studies on the TM technique have documented its effectiveness on stress and anxiety, brain function, cardiovascular health and more.
A meta-analysis of all available physiological research on the Transcendental Meditation Programme found that the practice of this technique produces a state of deep rest compared to eyes-closed control conditions, as measured by reduced respiration rate, reduced basal skin conductance (increased skin resistance), and reduced plasma lactate.
Maximum security prison inmates who learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme displayed increased self-development (ego development) in comparison to controls.

A study conducted at Sumitomo Heavy Industries by the Japanese National Institute of Industrial Health found that workers who learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme fell asleep more easily at night, in comparison to control workers.
University students who learned the Transcendental Meditation Technique reported significantly reduced sleepiness throughout the day after 10 weeks, in contrast to students randomly assigned to a delayed-start condition. Students learning the Transcendental Meditation Technique also showed increased integration of brain functioning and faster habituation to stressful stimuli in comparison to controls.
A study of executives and workers in the automotive industry found that after three months of regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, participants showed improved sleep quality, in comparison to controls from the same work sites.
