Proven Success with Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program
Aug 01, 2016 04:07PM
Beginning September 3, Al Rapaport, Certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program Teacher, will begin an eight-week course that will meet on Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.
Two decades of published research indicates that the majority of people who complete the MBSR Program report lasting decreases in physical and psychological symptoms. The studies show dramatic reductions in pain levels and an enhanced ability to cope with persistent pain; dramatic decreases of anxiety, depression and hostility; more effective skills in managing stress; an increased ability to relax; greater energy and enthusiasm for life; improved self-esteem; and an ability to cope more effectively with both short- and long-term stressful situations.
In the pain studies, people with chronic pain such as headaches, back pain, neck pain and fibromyalgia who participated in MBSR reported a dramatic reduction in the average level of pain for at least four years following the treatment.
