Mind-Body Therapies for Stress

This video briefly suggests several mind-body therapies, including aromatherapy, touch therapy, mindfulness meditation, music therapy, and visual art therapy, to help individuals counter and perhaps even prevent stress.

While stress is acknowledged by conventional medicine as detrimental to health, not much is done to promote patient-centered healing. This video briefly suggests several mind-body therapies, including aromatherapy, touch therapy, mindfulness meditation, music therapy, and visual art therapy, to help individuals counter and perhaps even prevent stress.
