Guided Meditation Sessions

These calming sessions alleviate stress and anxiety introducing participants to relaxation practices that promote wellbeing and clarity. Through skillful self observation these embodying sessions can be tailored to follow the sensory component as a supplement to pain management. Meditation can be as effective as antidepressant drugs in treating anxiety or depression, but without the side effects, according to a study conducted by researchers from Johns Hopkins University and published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.
