ABSTRACT
"Shavasan," a yogic exercise, was given to 47 patients with hypertension of various etiologies. A significant response was obtained in about 52 per cent of the patients. There was no response in patients with arteriosclerotic hypertension. The exercise is easy to perform, has no side effects and requires no equipment. There was symptomatic relief and a sense of "well being"' in the vast majority of the patients. This therapy opens a new avenue in the management of hypertension.
