Mind-Body Medicine

 

Much research evidence supports the importance of the mind-body connection and the benefits of mindfulness practices on physical and mental well-being. Mind-body medicine is often an inherent component of a holistic approach to health.

 

As part of their care, patients in our practice are offered the opportunity to receive guidance on how mind-body therapies can influence their health, if so desired, and receive referrals to coaches as indicated. 

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program that incorporates mindfulness meditation, body awareness, and yoga to help people become more mindful. It was originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where certified MBSR teachers continue to complete their training. Jon Kabt-Zinn defines mindfulness as "awareness that arises through paying attention, in the present moment, non-judgmentally."

The traditional MBSR program is an eight-week workshop that includes weekly sessions (2 hours) and a day-long retreat between the sixth and seventh sessions, though variations of the program are available.
