Recent research has shown that their is evidence that slow breathing meditation has benefits for mental health such as in this case for trauma related symptoms.

A new randomised controlled trial led by investigators from Stanford University and the University of Wisconsin Madison examined the effects of a breathing based yoga meditation among war veterans.  The research states that conventional therapy for psychological trauma has limited sucess in terms of treatment outcomes and as a result there is a need to search for other effective treatment modalities.
