We are offering classes to teach how the mind and body interact to influence health. You will learn how to apply these ideas to stress-related symptoms and chronic illnesses. We will use lectures, small group discussion and skills training to help you improve your health in many ways. The mind-body model of health focuses on your heredity, health habits, lifestyle, emotional states, social supports and environment. Skills such as stress management, relaxation, environmental modification and biofeedback will be used.
Examples of conditions appropriate for the use of mind-body treatment along with conventional medical treatment include: asthma, cancer, insomnia, chronic pain, heart disease, depression, fatigue, headaches, high blood pressure, menopausal symptoms, nervousness, premenstrual syndrome, arthritis and other stress-related disorders.
