Mindful-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an integrative neurobiological approach designed to improve overall coping strategies. Mindfulness assists in the reduction of stress, anxiety, addictive behavior, depression and inflammation. At Nature’s Oak Wellness Center our eight week course offers participants the ability to explore brain training techniques for improved physical and emotional well-being.
