Mind Body Medicine
Mind Body Medicine is based in the understanding that there is an intrinsic connection between our mind, body, and spirit.
By cultivating and noticing this connection we can then modulate our thoughts, sensations, and feelings. Mental or emotional stress leads to physical changes in the body, and physical sensations lead to mental or emotional changes.
The goal of Mind Body Medicine is to create balance in the nervous system so you can cultivate a sense of resiliency and peace in any situation. We all have a set of hard wired responses to our experience of the world and by finding your inner strengths, understanding your values, and with daily practice, these responses may be rewired. Some tools used to gain this self-awareness are biofeedback, mindfulness meditation, and guided imagery.
The first step of Mind Body Medicine involves self-awareness, you will be invited to monitor your physical sensations, mood, emotions, thought patterns, and habitual behaviors. You will be asked to engage in daily home practice that mirrors the in-office training. Mind Body Medicine will help to train you to live in a way that would most benefit your well being as a whole-person.
