Sitting quiescently is an effective measure for adjusting cerebral function. Ancient Chinese called it "the method of cultivation through sitting quiescently" or "the quiescent method." "Quiescence" is practised on the basis of relaxing and being at ease. It can soothe the cerebrum, make one to be even tempered and good-humoured, give the nerve center an opportunity for rest and reorganization. Sitting quiescently for half hour periods will have therapeutic effect for diseases of the nervous, circulatory and digestive systems and will also achieve unique results for exploiting intelligence and putting off the aging process.
