Mind Body Medicine

Learn how Mind Body Medicine techniques can bring about an improved sense of well being and improve your ability to change how you react to stress in your daily life.

Do you wish to be alert, adaptable, and live in balance through you day?
Do you take the time and space to be fully present in the moment, to enjoy what life has to offer?

Rebel Med NW physicians use a process-oriented, mindfulness-based, natural exploration of how to respond to daily stressors in your life without aggravating your health. Standard medicine practices emphasize the eradication and elimination of disease, while there is a time and place for these approaches, providing your body with space, presence, and materials it is looking for helps build and improve your health naturally.

By examining your thought processes, personal stories, and identifying how your thoughts and feelings are held within the body, you can become more fluid mentally, re-establish focus, understand your body and symptoms, and begin to build and restructure new healthy habits. By re-framing core beliefs that influence and sustain your current habits and behaviors, you can begin to live in a more balanced state. Biofeedback training assists this process by highlighting your normal physiologic symptoms while discussing your health.

During the process, you become more aware of how you inhabit your body, and how your thoughts and emotions live within your breath, mind, and body.

The providers at Rebel Med NW combine the art of naturopathic medicine, breath, and bodywork to restore energetic and autonomic balance, so you can keep your mind and body more resilient to stress.

Visualization

Visualization

Visualization techniques help develop a way to retrace past memories that provided compassion, safety, warmth, and overall sense of well being. Additionally, visualization can provide the opportunity to address fears, worries, difficult emotions, or major events that we don’t feel we are ready to address yet such as public speaking or traveling on a plane. Practicing visualization techniques can be a great way to practice your performance.
