Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program (MBSR) teaches practical meditation tools to help enhance quality of life physically, emotionally and mentally. This 8-week program is designed for individuals both with stress-related conditions, as well as those simply wanting to learn to live more mindfully. Developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, at the Massachusetts University Medical Centre in 1979, it is now taught worldwide. Research shows that regular mindfulness meditation practice brings about measurable lasting changes in health and brain function associated with memory, focus, empathy and stress.

Studies demonstrate that MBSR helps:

  • Stress

  • Psoriasis
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic pain
  • Fibromyalgia
