Mind-Body Connection

The mind-body connection is the link between our non-physical thoughts, attitudes, and patterns of behavior and our physical body and physical health. It’s a cornerstone of holistic medicine that treats the whole person in mind, body, and spirit, not just individual symptoms. There is solid scientific evidence—as well as many long-standing traditional philosophies—that our thoughts have powerful effects on our bodies, and our bodies can in turn influence our patterns of thought. This connection allows us to be conscious partners in our own systems of healing, performance, and overall wellness.
