dc.description.abstract Harmonization is a prctice whereby the harmoniser who is centered in silent prayer, opens and nourishes the subjects' chakrasm using touch. This technique has been widely used since 1983, with substantial anecdotal evidence wbout its benefits, but no published peer-reviewed data. This preliminary study aimed to discover if standard physiological measuring techniques can detect any significant changes in the central and autonomic nervous system and the cardiopulmonary system during harmonisation. A simple, comparative design was used, with one experimental group of 20 self-selecting, healthy women, naive to harmonisation. The results were compared with reference data, matched for age and gender, from non-intervention control studies conducted by the same experimeners in the same neurophysiological laboratory. An 80-minute recording session determined baseline, intervention and stabilisation measurements on electroencephalographic, electrocardiographic and respiratory data. A significant lowering of brain activity was found during theopening phase of harmonisation, implying a state of increased mental focus coupled with a sense of calmness and relaxation, while significant changes to heartbeat/respiration ratios were observed during the nourishing phase. This suggests that different physiological processes affecting the central and autonomic nervous system and the cardiopulmonary system may occur during different phases of harmonisation. en_US
