Mind-Body Medicine

What is Mind-Body Medicine?
  • Mind-Body Medicine is an approach that sees the mind (our thoughts and emotions) as having a central impact on the health of our body.
  • Mind-body skills taught here include mindfulness, yoga, relaxation, and positive psychology techniques. These skills have no negative side-effects and are an excellent complement to traditional medical care.
  • Some of the proven benefits of practicing mind-body skills on a regular basis include:
    • Nervous system balance and resiliency
    • Anger management
    • Improved focus and attention
    • Enhanced positive emotions, mood, perception of life
    • Improved immunity
    • Lower blood pressure
    • And the list goes on…
The Mind-Body Medicine Program is a part of the Integrated Health Service in the General Internal Medicine Department / Warrior Clinic at WRNMMC Bethesda.
