What is mind/body medicine?
Mind/Body Medicine is a non medical approach to health and healing that honors the connection between the mind, brain and body.

Mind/body medicine is based on the recognition of the body's innate healing potential, and the partnership of patient and facilitator in restoring the body to health.
