AbstractThe Eastern stress management techniques derived from the Body-Mind-Spirit (BMS) model by Chan (2001) have been applied to interventions for a variety of clienteles and the effectiveness has been supported by positive psychological outcomes. This study aims to complement these studies by evaluating the efficacy of a one-hour Eastern stress management session in reducing salivary cortisol levels in working adults in Hong Kong. Pre- and post-test salivary cortisol levels were measured and a significant drop after the session when compared with local normative data was evident. The efficacy of the stress management session, limitations of this study suggestions for further research are discussed. Copyright © 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
