Mayo Clinic Meditation is a clinically validated method of meditation you can easily practice using your iPhone or iPod. Developed by Mayo Clinic, this meditation program will help you feel more focused and relaxed throughout your day.
Start Mayo Clinic Meditation with a short training video that introduces the key concepts of the application. Mayo Clinic Meditation uses musical chords and circles to teach you slow, paced breathing which can help clear your mind of daily distractions, leaving you feeling calm, refreshed and at peace. You can choose either the 5 or 15 minute meditation program for your relaxation and enjoyment. The 5 minute program is perfect when you have just a few minutes to unwind. For maximum benefit, make time for the 15 minute program, which guides you through three cycles of paced breathing and silent meditation.
Begin and end your meditation experience with Healing Thoughts, gentle reminders that help you stay focused on the bright spots in everyday life. Healing Thoughts appear on the main screen every time you open Mayo Clinic Meditation. Share Healing Thoughts with friends and family via email, text, Facebook or Twitter.
Mayo Clinic Meditation is based upon the research of Amit Sood, M.D., a consultant in the Complementary and Integrative Medicine program at Mayo Clinic. Complimentary and integrative medicine aims to promote wellness by strengthening the communication between your mind and your body. Dr. Sood has published an initial clinical study showing the benefits of Mayo Clinic Meditation. The pilot study indicates that this simple paced-breathing meditation program can reduce stress and improve overall quality of life.
