Join us as we open the Mind Body Institute with a lecture by Dr. Ellen Slawsby of the Bensen Henry Institute to learn more about Mind Body Spirit Wellness on March 29th from 12-1:30 The Benson-Henry Institute is a scientific and educational organization dedicated to research, teaching, and clinical application of mind body medicine and its integration into all areas of health.  For the past 35 years, Dr. Herbert Benson and his colleagues have treated thousands of patients with stress-related illnesses using the relaxation response – a physical state of deep rest that changes the physical and emotional responses to stress.  For the past fifteen years, Dr. Ellen Slawsby has served the Institute as a staff psychotherapist.  As Director of the Chronic Pain Service, she will describe her groundbreaking work to Lunch and Learn participants, and share some of the tools and techniques she uses for pain management.   Targeted to both laypeople and clinicians, this program promises to be one of our most popular this year! Stress and anxiety in today's world has reached epidemic proportions-negatively affecting people's ability to cope effectively at work, home, and in school.  MHA is working to improve well-being along with its partners - in particular, the Bensen Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Mass General in Boston. Come and learn more about Mind Body Medicine and enjoy lunch too!  Members $25 Nonmembers $30
