Mind-Body Medicine, also known as behavioral medicine, is the field of medicine concerned with the ways that the mind and emotions influence the body and physical health.

What are the benefits of Mind-Body Medicine?

Mind-Body therapies have shown promise in treating cancer, heart disease, hypertension , asthma, and mental illness. They have been used as effective complementary therapies alongside such conventional treatments as surgery and chemotherapy. Mind-body therapies have also been shown to increase quality of life, reduce pain , and improve symptoms for people with chronic diseases and health conditions. They may also help control and reverse certain diseases, particularly those that are stress-related. By reducing stress, mind/body therapies may even prevent many diseases. Another benefit of mind-body therapies is that they pose very little risk. Some are inexpensive, and most have few side effects.
