In fact, he said prayer is the same as physical therapy, if done consistently and correctly produce positive effects on the body.
He said more rigorous studies are being conducted to identify the active muscles during prayers.
Ng Siew Chok - Brain Signals
He said the chemical changes occur when the brain is active. Chemical process that causes the movement of ions or atoms carry electric charge can be measured using electrodes placed on the scalp. A device, the EEG (Electroencephalography) used to measure brain signals of electrical activity.
"Brain wave frequency has some rhythm that is influenced by physical and emotional. Types of Alpha brainwaves (8-13 Hz) shows the state of calm, "he said
Although non-Muslims, Siew Chok impressed on the results of a study done to find the person after praying and thinking calmly and reached the state after waking up.
"It's an interesting phenomenon in prayer, the standing time before they bow down as the most quiet during prayer. I am not a Muslim and was told that the situation is tamakninah, "he said.

Dr Fatimah Ibrahim - Body Composition
He said the body composition of four major components, namely an active tissue, bone, fat and water components.
He said there are several methods for measuring body composition, but the study using the Bio-matching analysis which produces accurate results, faster and safer, than taking blood.
"This technique is widely used in the hospital this country, but in the United States, this technique was used to assess the status of diseases such as AIDS, diabetes, dengue fever and various other illnesses, he said.
In this study, he said the model for body composition is best to do five things, namely the five daily prayers, understand the purpose of reading the prayers, congregational prayers, bowing to the right (90 degrees) and melentikkan toes while sitting between the bow and end tahyat .
Dr Fatimah said, people who do not do these five things have a poor body composition.
He said overall the study found that prayers have better health than praying alone.
'Abdullah bin' Umar that the Prophet said: Verily prayers are 27 times more fine than praying alone. (Narrated by Imam Malik, Bukhari and Muslim).
"We found that when the congregation, the person doing the praying shoulder to shoulder contact. The human body is like a battery. When praying, the charge flow of the human body such as the circuit and eventually neutralize the charge of the body.
"Before the prayers, there are those who are tired and there are not tired. When praying, people who are not tired and have a positive charge positive charge will flow to the weak, and has a negative charge, "he said.
He said this caused the congregation to pray with the body more energized and calm.
Dr Fatimah said prayers and fasting are also beneficial as evidenced by the study.
Before Ramadan started, he said, and body composition measured after 21 days of fasting, body composition measured again enjoy good health condition such as low cholesterol levels due to the increased rate of burning fat and low sugar levels.
In addition, he said the position of the body (posture) in prayer to cure back pain. Even if the doctor, the patient was told to do exercises such as standing and bending the body is equal to the prayer movement.
He said the positive results that are based on scientific measures to put some sensors (detectors) in the patient's spine to see signs of muscle.
He said the study found that patients who attend prayers during the month of therapy, ie with a bow 90 degrees, sore waist down.
"This proves that prayer therapy can be used to treat back pain. We will publish the second book of prayer therapy is not only suitable for normal women, but for pregnant women. Non-Muslims also may follow therapy with exercises like prayer movement, "he said.
Do not be surprised that prayers can treat erectile dysfunction (ED) also known as erectile dysfunction, men's health problems are very afraid.
