Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction has been used around the world to improve medical outcomes for people with chronic health conditions. The mind of the client is often underutilized in treatment of health concerns. There is a powerful capacity in the mind of the client to improve their own health, if given the right tools. This group seeks to teach clients what those tools are and how to use them. It is not a replacement for other medical and mental health treatments but rather an adjunct to use alongside your current treatment plan. The group will focus on using four mindful practices to improve overall health. Instructors will seek to coordinate with other providers to ensure the best possible outcomes.
