GSR during Natural Stress Relief meditation.
During the practice of the Natural Stress Relief
technique, beyond its effect on brain waves (the
strengthening of alpha waves), there is a strong
increase in the electrical resistance of the skin
(this is known as "Galvanic Skin Response", or GSR),
due to decreased perspiration, which in turn results
from a lessening of anxiety.
The effect of the Natural Stress Relief Technique on
GSR is rapid and very consistent. Electrical
resistance is measured in thousands of Ohms (kOhms)
using electrodes placed on the index and
middle fingers of the left hand. The resistance
increases in only a few minutes, beginning with a
value of less than 100 kOhms and ending with a value
in excess of 300 kOhms.
In the tests we carried out, the subjects rest for
approximately 20 minutes, not practicing NSR. Then
they practice NSR for approximately 20 minutes
(instead of the usual 15 minutes), during which the
GSR increases quickly. Finally, they rest for another
20 minutes without practicing NSR.
Here is typical data measured minute by minute on a
single subject (on another page we present
data on five other subjects).

These tests show substantially the same results as
those carried out in the 1970s on the Transcendental
Meditation (TM) technique, today so much more costly
than NSR. References:

Our results obtained with NSR are thus virtually
identical with those obtained back in the 1970s with
TM, which were thought so exceptional at the time.
All of this happens voluntarily and systematically and
demonstrates a remarkable relaxation and reduction in
anxiety. Click for
