Are you feeling stuck in an endless loop? not yourself or disconnected? or feel like something’s broken?
You are not alone my friend.
Did you know that 60-80% of all visits to Primary Care Providers are for stress-related conditions?
We usually think of stress as negatively impacting our lives. Something we need to fix.
What if you learned that there is nothing more natural than stress? That stress is the reason we’ve evolved to be the human beings we are today. That stress is predictable. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end and we can feel more balanced if we are taught to notice and manage these stages all day long. The first step in taking care of ourselves and finding balance starts with noticing that our bodies are constantly sending us signals that something is either good for us or that something needs to change. If we’re spinning, feeling stuck, or disconnected — something needs to change. But what?!?
During this hour together, an Introduction to Mind-Body Medicine will help explain why certain strategies designed to help us feel better, work better for some and not others. We are all unique! Does meditation make you more anxious? Do you want to know why? We will use some simple tests designed to help figure out what strategies might work best for you and why. During this time together, you can start designing a plan for what next step could help head you in the direction towards feeling better.
Do join us!
