Meditation, relaxation, managing stress, sleep problems, LifeStyle counselling for busy people. Good health depends on the quantity and quality of sleep that you get each night. Lack of sleep is associated with irritability, impatience, anxiety, and depression. A good night's sleep is a necessity, not a luxury. If you suffer from sleep problems, sleep deprivation or stress, injury or illness, help is at hand in clinical consultations with a sleep and meditation expert.

His work explores the neurophysiological effects of certain yoga breathing and meditation practices on the heart, brain and autonomic nervous system. Understanding how the brain, nervous and hormonal systems work, particularly in terms of balancing autonomic activity of the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic nervous systems allows better understanding of how the practices work and how to get maximum benefits without other problems.

In University and hospital research studies, he has explored the benefits of yoga in terms of effects on the hypothalamus and Pineal. Melatonin, the hormone released by this small gland at night, helps to maintain the sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin enhances and maintains immune system functioning as well as being an anti aging and anti cancer agent.
