Positive ChangesWellness Center was created to help the community discover new approaches to improved health through the balancing of the mind, body and spirit. The concept that the mind is important in health and illness dates back to ancient times. Today leading hospitals and centers across the United States are including Complementary and Alternative Medicine in their treatment programs.



Recent results from NIH-funded studies on mind-body therapies include:


*  Many studies document that psychological stress is linked to a variety of health problems, such as increased heart disease, compromised immune system functioning. Some evidence suggests that mind-body therapies could reduce psychological stress.
In a study of 60 breast cancer survivors, women who used hypnosis reduced the number and severity of hot flashes and also reported improvements in mood and sleep.

* A study of 63 people with rheumatoid arthritis found that Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction helped to improve quality of life and reduce psychological distress.
