Mind/Body Medicine is a commonly used category of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). Mind/Body techniques use the mind, thoughts, and emotions to influence physical health. The mind and body are profoundly interconnected and are perhaps indistinguishable. Whereas the mind can make the body sick and create dis-ease, it can also trigger the body’s innate healing capabilities. Research supports the use of Mind/Body techniques to improve numerous conditions including immune function, stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, migraines, headaches, digestive issues, chronic pain, heart disease, high blood pressure, and cancer. Anyone and everyone can benefit from Mind/Body techniques.

The Classes

 

Class 1: Mind/Body Theory and Psychoneuroimmunology

Class 2: Meditation Part 1
Meditation is the best known and most researched form of Mind/Body Medicine. Some have argued there is enough research to move meditation from alternative medicine into to the mainstream. There are numerous forms of meditation. The focus of this class is non-moving, seated meditations such as mantra and mindfulness.

Class 3: Meditation Part 2
This class focuses on the other main category of meditations known as moving meditations. Moving meditations include yoga, Tai Chi, and Qi Gong.

Class 4: Hypnosis and Guided Imagery
Hypnosis and guided imagery are closely related as both use the power of visualization and suggestion to exert influence over health. The body cannot tell the difference between what the mind really sees and what it creates through imagination, thus these techniques are an incredibly powerful tool in facilitating holistic healing.
