Lecture Overview

While the mechanics of mind-body links are still being unravelled, your brain, and consequently, your thoughts and emotions, do play a role in how we experience physical pain. Optimal healing is hindered if the body is in a state of stress, pain, or anxiety. This session provides a light-hearted exploration at the phenomenon of the mind-body relationship.
