Omkar is the primordial sound that created the universe. It consists of 4 sounds: A and U contracts that give O, O nasal, and M. This therapy is widely used for stress management. There are several advantages of omkar therapy such as it helps in cleansing the mind, controlling emotions, and improving concentration, memory, and understanding. Besides all these, it also relaxes oneself physically, mentally, and emotionally. It brings positivity to the surroundings.
Chanting “OM” produces a vibratory sensation in the ears, which spreads through the auricular branch of the vagus nerve, stimulating the vagal centers and producing an effect similar to that of the technique of vagal stimulation. Modern technology and brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have made it possible to look at the physiological responses produced by the recitation of OM.
More advanced studies using functional near-infrared spectroscopy showed that the vibrations produced during chanting deactivate the prefrontal cortices, suggesting that it has a stimulating effect on the auricular branch of the vagus nerve in the ear canal. Suggesting Om chanting could be an added therapy for depression and epilepsy.
Chanting OM at six breaths per minute had shown a robust and synchronous increase in cardiovascular rhythms, with enhanced Baroreflex sensitivity. These six breaths per minute showed increased mental alertness, even while being physiologically relaxed (shown by the reduced heart rate).
