Finally, if it helps diminish fatigue, enhance memory, it is also recommended in the case of heart diseases, disorders of the respiratory system, hypertension or circulatory problems. In addition, relaxation therapy provides restoration of the link between the psyche and the body, through the discovery of this body-mind experience.
