Mindfulness is a conscious meditative practice involving awareness of one’s body, mind and spirit. A famous example of mindfulness is of the Buddha eating an orange. If you don’t think much about eating an orange, it is gone before you know it.
Instead, if you involve all five senses (smell, taste, vision, hearing, and touch) as you peel, taste, observe and feel the orange, it becomes a whole new experience of recognizing the present moment completely and fully. Quiet mindfulness practices may involve sitting and breathing; active mindfulness may be done while walking, talking, or even laughing.
Mindfulness begins with embracing your current state of being, living in the moment. Using the 5 senses (touch, sound, taste, sight, smell), we guide you through the practice of being in the present in your daily life, really appreciating the world around you and how the senses can ground you.
Instilling breathing techniques in your daily activities has been known to reduce stress, recenter ourselves and create a sense of peace. We help build these practices so that you can use these techniques to provide a sense of calm and peace in your daily life.
Love can do wonders for our overall health and well being. Clearing your mind and surrounding yourself with love can clear your mind from negative thoughts and distractions, leading to a peaceful, happier state of mind.
I loved the bodywork component that went into the Japanese style of acupuncture that Dr. Trowbridge practices.
Dr. Trowbridge is a great balance of integrative medicine, with her MD education and holistic care background and personal lifestyle.
Highly recommend! Very knowledgeable and intuitive in offering acupuncture. Cozy and inviting space.
After just a few visits my arthritis pain has become manageable. I am very pleased.
