Although the association between ongoing life stress and hypertension is complex and somewhat controversial, many believe that relaxation techniques may be helpful in alleviating feelings of stress, which is often a contributing factor to hypertension. While the results of studies investigating this relationship have been mixed, one study of older African Americans living in an urban setting found that those who participated in a transcendental meditation (TM) or progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) program had a significant reduction in blood pressure compared to those who participated in a lifestyle education program. While both techniques were beneficial, TM was twice as effective as PMR.
