In this session we will learn, discuss and experience mind body techniques that can be used to encourage relaxation in our patients and ourselves. These techniques can be used for overall well-being as well as acute and chronic medical conditions to promote reflection and self-awareness. Although the addition of these techniques into your own life or into your clinical practice can feel daunting, one can see personal benefit in even a brief relaxation practice and the techniques can easily be taught to patients within the context of a 15-20 minute visit. Examples of techniques that we will cover are: relaxation breathing, progressive relaxation, mindful eating and gratitude journaling.
