Definition

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine defines mind-body medicine as the interactions among the brain, mind, body and behavior, and on the powerful ways in which emotional, mental, social, spiritual and behavioral factors can directly affect health. It regards as fundamental an approach that respects and enhances each person’s capacity for self-knowledge and self-care, and it emphasizes techniques that are grounded in this approach.

We would also like to thank Goldman Sachs Gives at the recommendation of Mark & Mindy Dehnert for your most generous gift to the Children, Families, and Caregivers at Rusk Rehabilitation.
