Moving Meditation for Stress
Reduction

The movements, breathing, sound healing, focus, and visualizations associated with Qigong and other moving meditation practices help tone the vagus nerve. Because this nerve is part of the autonomic nervous system, it contributes to parasympathetic response or "rest and digest" mode. A well-toned vagus nerve helps prevent inflammation and reduces levels of stress.
