Many postive changes: There is a large body of research demonstrating multiple benefits of various relaxation techniques. It changes our brainwaves, increases blood flow & activity of certain parts of the brain, improves communication between sides of the brain, enhances immune function, lowers blood pressure, reduces stress etc. A good summary of research is at http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/research_on_meditation.
