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
blood pressure, menopausal
symptoms, nervousness, premenstrual
syndrome, arthritis and other stress-related disorders.
