meditation-image-53A recent study conducted by researchers from Miami and Ohio State universities suggests that Tibetan meditation could prove to be a new option for treating victims of PTSD. Participants in the study were women diagnosed with PTSD who were being trained in Tibetan meditation as part of a six-week program. The study marks an important shift in PTSD-related research by considering a more holistic approach to treatment of this disorder. Researchers see the empowering nature of Tibetan meditation as a promising alternative form of treatment that is both less invasive and also allows PTSD victims to participate more actively in their own healing.
