The chronic forms of the hypertension are treated with special antihypertensive medicines, but we can reduce the risk of the development of the disease at an early stage only with the help of dancing. If we talk about dance styles, the Katkhak is the most suitable style for people with the hypertension. This style activates the nervous system all over the body. The Katkhak is a classical dance of the northern India, the basis of which is rhythmic compositions made on the alternation of strokes with left and right feet. The Katkhak gives a pay load to the backbone, as a great number of bendings and half-twists train the cervical spine and the loin. This style is also suitable for those who has problems with coordination of movements or suffers from arthritis. The Katkhak develops hands and wrists, shoulder and hip joints, strengthen the vestibular apparatus and the cardiovascular system.

For those who often have a headache Aacharyaa Pratishtha advise to perform a dance of a snake, which is based on the movement of the neck. For those who suffer from different forms of the arthritis the dances containing the movements of hands and wrists are suitable. It is of course Bharatanatyam - the traditional dance, the main load of which is concentrated on the upper part of body. There are 24 types of movements of one hand, 13 types of movements of two hands, 10 movements of the arms and 5 types of movements for chest, trunk, stomach and hips in the Southern Indian style of Bharatanatyam. Aacharyaa Pratishtha warns that every set of dancing exercises should be worked out individually together with a doctor. Especially, if you want to dance not to prevent but to treat a serious disease.

The performance of hastas and mudras has a great psychophysical effect, connected with the size of projection of the hand to the brain cortex. It is a well known fact for the teachers and logopedists, who use small-button games to develop children's speech and quick-wittedness.
