Cancer Services will host a relaxation techniques session on Monday, February 11, and Thursday, February 21, at our Healing Arts Center. The sessions will walk participants through guided imagery, gentle chair yoga, and an introduction to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, presented by Richard Johnson, PhD and Jack Dyer, MD. Both sessions are open to anyone interested in learning more about relaxation techniques as it relates to illness.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was introduced by cellular biologist Jon Kabat Zinn PhD in 1979. It provides a modality to help patients control pain and stress arising from serious illness and has been shown to improve the immune system and promote wellness. Kabat Zinn defined mindfulness as “paying attention in the present moment, on purpose without judgement.” Drs. Johnson and Dyer were trained at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.
