Abstract

Beyond the target of scientific researches, meditation is now one of the main tools for palliative and integrative medicine in Western society. Despite theof valuable heritages of meditation in Korea, meditation is not considered to have clinical implications as in Western medical society. It is partly due to the fact that while the mysterious aspect of meditation has been emphasized, a large number of scientific researches on meditation had not been known to Korean medical society. The authors reviewed several studies that examined the clinical effect of meditation and speculated its possibility as a method of clinical intervention.
