Zen originated in China and then migrated to Japan around the 14th century where it evolved into an influential spiritual practice. Historically Japan is the heartland of Zen.Three main schools of Zen evolved in Japan using somewhat varying methods for obtaining enlightenment. It is said that the practice of Zen meditation has been around for thousands of years. Relatively recently it has made its way to the West where it has gained more popularity and acceptance. Many people in the West have traveled to Asia to learn the art of meditation after which they return and introduce the art to others.

Problems that can be treated by Zen healing:

Below are some of the problems listed that can be treated by zen healing:

Anxiety : Meditation can produce a deep state of relaxation in mind. Practicing meditation on a daily basis makes our mind habitual to staying calm and stops worrying.

Depression : It also heals depression problems as you stop worrying about problems and things that depress you and attain a positive outlook towards life.
