Lower blood pressure: Breathing and Meditation

The RESPeRATE is an interesting device that seems to be an electronic meditation guide, helping the user peform specific breathing exercises. They claim an average pressure reduction of 14/8, which is about what I need.

Apparently meditation has been clinically proven to lower blood pressure and given that I suspect that my high blood pressure is related to incorrect breathing (because of stress and a half-blocked nasal passage) the idea of breathing/meditation seems quite promising... will try meditation/breathing exercises on my own at first and see what happens.
