Mind body therapy practices are techniques to enhance the mind’s positive impact on the body. This means that our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes can positively or negatively affect how we react to the world around us.
Mind-body therapy including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, guided imagery, biofeedback, visual imagery, body awareness, meditation, can create a deep state of understanding of our thoughts, actions, ourselves.
Mind body therapy helps individuals manage stress, anxiety and depression, improve self-esteem, solve conflict, develop self awareness and insight, relieve symptoms of trauma, and develop interpersonal skills.
Have you found yourself repeatedly in relationships and situations that are quite different from what you want? Mind-body therapy will help you understand why you continue to make the choices you make.
Working with our counselors we will help you live a happier, less stressful and more fulfilling life.
Our fast-paced society can cause people to push their minds and bodies to the limit, often at the expense of physical and mental wellbeing. According to the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Harvard University, 60 to 90% of all medical office visits in the United States are for stress related disorders.
Relaxation techniques are helpful tools for coping with stress and promoting long-term health by slowing down the body and quieting the mind. Such techniques generally entail: refocusing attention (for example, noticing areas of tension), increasing body awareness, and exercises (such as meditation) to connect the body and mind together. Used daily, these practices can lead to a healthier perspective on stressful circumstances. In fact, more than 3,000 studies show the beneficial effects of relaxation on health and wellbeing.
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) an agency of the Federal Government and housed within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, defines mind-body interventions and mind body therapy as those practices that “employ a variety of techniques designed to facilitate the mind’s capacity to affect bodily function, our thoughts and actions.”
