Using Your Mind to Improve Your Health

Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the present moment. A purposeful self-awareness that promotes consciousness of what we are doing, thinking and feeling.

Studies have found that mindfulness causes changes in the brain associated with improved attention, positive emotions, decision making, impulse control, and concentration. Mindfulness has also been shown to improve immune system functioning. It helps to fight disease and illness, as well as aids in healing.

Did you know?

The body knows how to heal itself. We are equipped with natural self-repair mechanisms that are affected by our minds. What we think, feel and believe influences our body’s functioning. The body knows how to kill cancer cells, fix broken proteins, slow aging, eliminate toxins, fight infections, and otherwise keep you healthy. When our natural self-repair mechanisms fail to function properly, disease can establish itself within our bodies.

Only when your body is stress-free or exhibiting the Relaxation Response does your self-repair system function.

The natural, non-invasive treatments for a healthier you!

Many people are unaware of how much influence our thoughts have on our emotional and physical state. Along with our thinking, other functions that we can control, such as our breathing, have a significant impact on our well-being.

I use biofeedback, mindfulness, and relaxation therapy to train you in decreasing the effects of stress on your mind and body. These are all distinctly different and unique treatments.

If you think you cannot afford biofeedback, think about other expenses you have regularly, like the hair salon, gym memberships, and prescription medications…… that biofeedback treatment might help you reduce. Think about the long-term of each of those expenses, then think about your health and well-being. Think about being happier and healthier for the rest of your life. 

 What is that worth to you? Biofeedback, Mindfulness, and Relaxation Therapy are short-term treatments for long-term health enhancement. It is an investment in YOU!


I hope to provide clients with a better understanding of how the mind-body connection influences our physical and emotional health, and how we can learn skills that enhance our overall well-being.

All treatment is individualized and will be tailored to your needs. I am dedicated to providing my clients courteous, compassionate, and professional service.
