Default Engine Braking

Hi all,
Wanted to know if engine braking (moving to lower gears while on higher speed to brake the car) is healthy for the engine and gears?

I heard about engine braking recently and tried it out couple of times.
I felt it really helpful on slopes and also city driving, rather than pushing the brakes its very effective to stall the car.
Although I understand that using the brakes are must for my/others safety.

Just wanted some knowledge about this. I'm concerned about causing damage to engine/gears in the long run by frequent practice.

Please advice.
