Become Empowered – Become a Mind-Body-Movement Specialist!

The time is NOW!

  • If you are concerned about pain and stress - the time is now to learn how you can make a difference in this global epidemic.  
  • Chronic pain costs the U.S. over 635 billion dollars a year.[i]
  • According to the International Association for the Study of  Pain:  “Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage.”[ii]
  • In addition, seven out of ten Americans complain of suffering from emotional stress.[iii]

From these sobering facts it is quite clear that the time is now for a paradigm shift away from how we are currently treating these conditions to evidence-based strategies that have origins in ancient history. This is because yesterday’s art has become today’s science.

From recent studies on chronic pain it seems to me that what has been missing, or should I say dismissed, for too many years is that we have marginalized the importance of the mind-body connection and have therefore done a disservice to patients dealing with these chronic conditions. Research reveals that ancient and modern day, mind-body-movement interventions are viable modalities for treating both physical pain and emotional stress.

As stated above, the time is now to recognize the mind-body connection, or  biopsychosocial model of healing.

  • The science of the mind-body connection and the importance of embracing the biopsychosocial model of health care.
