Unleash the Power of Mind-Healing

Vibrant health requires perfect harmony between the mind and body. Holistic healers have understood and honored the concept of healing with the mind for centuries.

Modern medicine was slower to adapt but convincing scientific evidence has emerged in recent years that solidifies the importance of the mind/body connection. In fact, many major medical centers incorporate meditation and other relaxation techniques into overall treatment plans for illness, injury and pain management.

“It’s all in your mind” 


The National Center for Complimentary Health and Alternative Medicine continues to work with the National Institutes of Health to study meditation’s effects, how it works and the types of illnesses and health maladies that can be treated with it.

Tapping into the subconscious mind to boost the body’s natural ability to repair and adjust can garner amazing results. When your conscious mind steps aside and your body begins to relax, the corresponding physical responses accelerate the healing process.

Meditation has been scientifically proven to:

        Decrease respiratory rates
        Increase blood flow
        Regulate heart rates
        Lower blood pressure
        Speed healing
        Boost the immune system
        Reduce post-operative pain

Meditation improves overall health

A relaxed mind and positive attitude are just as essential to health as a proper diet, exercise, hygiene and rest. When our minds are at ease, the quality of life is enhanced and our immune systems respond by becoming stronger in their ability to fight diseases.

Medical research has determined that any weak link in communication between the brain and body affects the neurotransmitters that regulate a wide range of bodily functions. That is why any disease that is caused or worsened by stress can be improved with meditation. (And studies show that almost all illnesses are directly or indirectly related to stress.)

Studies show that meditation decreases the body’s levels of cortisol, an age-accelerating hormone that is associated with decreased bone density, elevated blood pressure, suppressed thyroid function, blood sugar imbalances, heart attack and stroke. Meditation boosts the body’s supply of HGH (human growth hormone) that is essential to good health and diminishes with age.
