About the mind-body connection: Research continues to show that the mind influences the body in profound ways. The mechanisms of these pathways are not completely understood, but the process of mind-body connection can be used to positively enhance the healing process.

So….how do we achieve a mind-body connection? There are many answers to this question, mostly because this is such an individualized and personal process. In my experience, I find that we achieve a mind-body connection through gentle awareness of our surroundings, positive intentions from our heart, and a deep commitment to bring our best self forward. How do you find your mind-body connection?
From Dr. Farr:
Thank you for your curiosity in this aspect of health and well-being. If you are new to mindfulness practices, or if you are experienced with mindfulness and meditation, or if you need some extra vitality for your current mindfulness routine, I’d love to talk with you. I’m sure that we can both learn from each other. Schedule an appointment, and we can start the conversation!
