Mindfulness based stress reduction techniques have been consistently documented as highly effective in:
  • Decreasing physical and psychological symptoms
  • Increase ability to relax
  • Reduction in pain levels
  • Greater energy and enthusiasm for life
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Ability to cope more effectively
