Mindfulness Meditation is practice that has been scientifically shown to be of benefit to people confronting a variety of physical and psychological issues, such as high blood pressure, chronic pain, anxiety, depression and stress. Decreased pain and an increased sense of well-being are two of the many gifts that may be experienced as a result of practicing Mindfulness Meditation’s simple yet powerful techniques.
