The link between our physical health and emotional health is both strong
and direct. Symptoms of medical illness such as migraine headache,
irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia and chronic pain can be exacerbated
by how we feel emotionally, while they can also make everyday life more
difficult to manage. In my practice, I use behavioral medicine techniques such as
mindfulness, relaxation, hypnosis and cognitive-behavioral therapy to
help alleviate physical and emotional symptoms by reducing stress and
tension within the body.
