Mindfulness and guided relaxation are important tools for experiencing the mind-body connection. This one hour, one-on-one session will help you build skills to manage stress and explore ways to deal with physical pain, emotions, and side effects of medical treatment. During this session, you will:
• Experience conscious awareness using your breath to relax
• Form mental images of relaxing places and situations using guided relaxation
• Explore acceptance of living in the present with life as it is without judgment
• Enhance your capacity to cope with life’s challenges on a moment to moment basis
Mindfulness meditation and guided relaxation are powerful tools that help manage stress, find inner peace, and improve mental function. In addition, they help cultivate self-awareness, compassion, and empathy. Regular practice can improve both mental and physical health.
In each session, you will learn and practice skills to calm the body and mind through guided relaxation techniques and breathing exercises. Each session will focus on a specific area of health and wellness, such as strengthening the immune system, cardiac health, stress reduction, pain management, restful sleep, and deep relaxation.
Guided relaxation is a powerful tool that helps manage stress, find inner peace, and improve mental function. It can also cultivate self-awareness, compassion, and empathy.
