Testimonials and Case Studies

Mental Disorders

Please note: The results described herein are particular to the individuals who experienced them. There can be no assurance that other participants in the Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology programme will obtain the same results.

Anxiety and Depression

"I've had symptoms of chronic anxiety, low self esteem, lethargy and lack of enthusiasm for day to day life. My experiences with the Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology consultation have been very good. It seems to get to the root of the problem, rather than just providing some temporary alleviation of the symptoms. For example, I was hoping that after the consultation I would feel happier or more enthusiastic during the day. While I have experienced some of this, the effects seem to be much more profound. Instead of just some elevation of mood, which is a surface level phenomenon, the real result has been a very deep feeling of security and stability.

"What is amazing to me is that I have lived for so long being overshadowed by these symptoms. I did not remember what feeling good was like. This is the tragedy of any chronic symptom. The mind becomes so used to being overshadowed that one forgets the experience of sunshine. One comes to feel that life in the shadows is all that there is, and this feeling can run deep in the mind and influence one's behavior. I feel now as though I am waking up from a bad dream and remembering what normal life is like. This is a very profound and unexpected gift." — Male, early 30s


"For the last 27 years it's taken me a minimum of an hour, usually closer to an hour and a half or two hours to fall asleep. I've tried numerous different therapies and none of them have worked. It's been debilitating because I don't get up early enough, or when I do get up at the right time, I'm tired. The night of my first Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology session I fell asleep within five minutes. Since then it's taken only fifteen minutes at the most to fall asleep each night. It definitely is instant relief from something I considered to be a major problem." — Pat Yankaus

Daughter's Anxiety Improves Dramatically

"My 7-year-old daughter has a lot of anxiety-some of it from childbirth and some from when my wife and I divorced. After my daughter took the programme, I noticed she had more willingness to try new things. Everything from food to friends to activity improved dramatically."

Depression, Anxiety and Insomnia

"I had consultations for three disorders: anxiety, insomnia, and depression. These were long-standing problems which interfered greatly with my quality of life.

"After the first session, I felt about 80 percent relief. I felt a profound change taking place in my body and mind, including a very clear experience of healing in my brain physiology. Since my consultation I have continued to enjoy relief of perhaps 60 to 70 percent. I am sleeping better, am far less anxious and depressed and, for the first time in a very long time, am experiencing happiness, peace and hope." — Female, mid 40s

Anxiety and Insomnia

"Life-long anxiety was greatly reduced after just one Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology session. Also, my sleep has taken on a deep, rejuvenating quality that has not been there for at least 25 years, if ever. No other programme has been nearly as effective." — Female, mid 40s


"Within the first minute of the session for insomnia, I felt a huge flood of fatigue and tension leaving my body. I could feel muscles physically unwinding. Suddenly my head felt free from a heaviness that I hadn't been fully aware of before. I felt peaceful, relaxed and contented-much more like myself. After suffering from long-term insomnia, now I can fall asleep within 15 minutes, and stay asleep. What a difference proper sleep makes for a dynamic, creative, and happy day!" — Jan Shaw

Peaceful Household Restored

"Anger had been building up in our 8-year-old son. It really got bad after a hospital stay for asthma seven months earlier. From the first session the changes were phenomenal. That entire day he was so kind and sweet, which is basically his real nature. After the next two sessions-each a week apart-it seemed to really stabilize. I would say it improved by about 75 to 80 percent overall. This has totally changed our lives and allowed us to have a peaceful household again."

Son's Anger Improves

"We've noticed that our son is much more settled inside since his consultation, and he has less anger. Sometimes he still feels frustrated or disappointed and other negative emotions, but instead of them turning immediately into anger he's able to feel what is going on and deal with it. He is having fewer incidents and problems at school, and is getting along better with other kids. When he has a problem with another kid, he can apologize instead of insisting he is right."


"I am very lucky to have had the best Dad life could possibly offer! He was the greatest in every way-strong, intelligent, multi-talented, successful, funny, kind, generous, and always there for us. Losing him was the greatest loss I've ever known. Before this I did not truly know the meaning of a broken heart. When I started the session for grief, within the first second, a smile came upon my face! I felt extremely peaceful and happy. It used to be when I thought of my father, I would instantly feel like crying. Now, memories make me happy instead of sad." — Jan Shaw

Child's Grief Alleviated

"My 8 ½-year-old son has gone through many changes in his short life. His older sister passed away when he was five, and my husband and I were recently divorced. His grief had recently begun to manifest as anger. Since his consultation, he has become much more himself again-happier and more caring of others."
