St. John's Medical Center announces the next session of the "Mind-Body
Skills" group, a program to help individuals experiencing life changes,
stress, and illness. The group, facilitated by Maureen Molinari, will
introduce Mind-Body Skills, including meditation, guided imagery, self-hypnosis,
biofeedback, breath work, movement, journal writing, and drawing. The
10-week series meets on Mondays from 6 to 8 pm at St. John's Medical
Center, beginning January 27. Classes will not be held over spring break.
Pre-registration is required; please call 307-739-7620. The cost is $80.
Mind-Body Skills Groups offer significant benefits for people with diabetes,
cancer, depression/anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, fertility
issues, arthritis, and post-traumatic stress. In addition, Mind-Body Skills
groups also benefit people dealing with stressful life changes including
separation, divorce, bereavement, and menopause.
“Learning skills and strategies to balance life’s stress, including
managing diabetes, is essential to living well with a chronic health issue,”
said Catherine Cullinane, RN, Certified Diabetes Nurse Educator and Coordinator
of St. John's Diabetes Education. The course is supported in part
by funds raised by the Steve Winograd Memorial Tennis Tournament.
Maureen Molinari, MS, RD, LD, CDE, is currently pursuing a PhD in Mind-Body
Medicine at Saybrook University.
