Martial Arts Therapy Methodology

Method of therapy

Martial arts can help reduce stress and anxiety by encouraging the practice of deep breathing, meditation, and mindfulness. It helps in training the mind to keep the attention focused while remaining calm and alert. Through constant meditation and mental exercise, practitioners are given the ability to clear their mind as they reach a zen-like state required for maximizing performance.


Training martial arts is an excellent full-body workout that triggers the release of endorphins in the body. Endorphin (feel good hormone) helps regulate emotions and is responsible for the 'Zen' feeling after an intense workout. Training also improves blood flow throughout the body, meaning the organs and tissues get all the oxygen and nutrients they need to stay in an optimal state. It strengthens both muscles and cardiovascular system that allows enhancing physical performance capacity.

Furthermore, martial arts therapy combats stress, giving participants a safe space to express intense emotions in a controlled way. This allows the brain to respond more cognitively in times of stress (fight, flight, freeze). Mind-body techniques can be helpful for many physical conditions as they encourage relaxation, improve coping skills, and reduce tension and pain.
