Are you looking for a simple stress reduction activity you can give to your clients that incorporates physical movements? Exercise has a profound impact on cognitive abilities and mental health. It is simply one of the best treatments we have for most psychiatric problems. Now add spoken positive affirmations and your clients have an unparalleled healthy activity that can release trauma while building up their physical, mental and emotional resilience.
Meditative Movements™ is a low cost, adaptable solution that may be effective in reducing anxiety, depression, and fatigue, while improving emotional and functional well-being for persons with chronic health conditions per the 2016 University of Minnesota feasibility research study. You can use this technique one-on-one and in group settings.
As a mental health practitioner, you strive to give your clients tailored resources that fit their individual needs. As SAMHSA reports, an effective approach often involves a combination of treatments and support services. Because people with mental and substance use disorders often have more physical health problems than the general population, they need easy ways to move their physical body while retraining their minds.
Teaching certificates are available for professionals who want to share this technique with their patients and clients.
The 2016 University of Minnesota feasibility research study concluded that Meditative Movements™ may be effective in reducing anxiety, depression, and fatigue, while improving emotional well-being and functional well-being for persons with chronic health conditions. The findings suggest that Meditative Movements™ may be used as an alternative and complementary therapy or rehabilitation program for persons with chronic health conditions.
