"To the extent that one's medical condition and/or symptoms are caused or made worse by stress, we can help."Herbert Benson, MD
M/BMI Founding President
STRESS-RELATED ILLNESS
The Mind/Body Medical Institute has a long history of improving the lives of thousands of people whose conditions are caused or made worse by stress. The programs offered at our Health and Wellness Center are based on published scientific and clinical research that shows the effectiveness of the relaxation response and a mind/body approach. Our programs are meant to complement whatever conventional medicine treatment a patient may be receiving.

The Health and Wellness Center offers the weekly medical programs listed below as well as individual therapy, and both are generally covered by most insurance providers.

Cardiac Wellness Program - to improve heart health of patients with hypertension, lipid disorders, diabetes, arrhythmias, and/or heart disease
Medical Symptom Reduction Program - to help people manage general stress-related conditions, including pain, insomnia, asthma, allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune diseases, anxiety, and depression
Mind/Body Program for Infertility - to relieve distress and enhance conception, for woman and their partners
Mind/Body Program for Perimenopause/Menopause - to lessen hot flashes, insomnia, and other symptoms and improve overall mid-life health
Mind/Body Program for Cancer - to manage side effects of chemotherapy and radiation and to reduce physical symptoms associated with cancer
Mind/Body Chronic Pain Service - to increase coping and well-being of people living with CFS, fibromyalgia and other pain conditions
Each multi-week program meets in two - three hour sessions that blend lecture, hands-on experience, and group support. With the guidance of an M/BMI clinician, you will acquire skills and strategies to help you feel better now and to set you on a course of lifelong health.
