    What is the mind-body connection?

    According to, the mind-body connection describes how our bodies respond to the way we think, feel and act. When we?re stressed, anxious or upset, our bodies often try to tell us that something isn?t right. For example, high blood pressure or a stomach ulcer might develop after a particularly stressful event, such as the death of a loved one. Although this may seem logical, the mind-body connection has emerged as one of the fastest growing areas in health research today. David Felton, a neurobiologist with the University of Rochester earned a MacArthur ?genius grant? for exploring the relationship between our emotions and our physical health, and Newsweek recently devoted its entire ?Health for Life? report to this growing field. According to a recent government poll, almost half of all Americans use mind-body techniques. The respondents embrace practices ranging from deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation to meditation, and guided imagery and hypnosis. One of the most exciting applications for establishing good health is therapeutic hypnosis.
