Mind-Body Healing and Meditation
At Maryland Holistics, we care for individuals who have a wide range of
illnesses, injuries, and conditions. Some conditions we treat require
only attention to the physical body. Examples of these may include
reducing the inflammation in a joint or helping a particular nerve to
heal. Other conditions or situations such as multiple sclerosis,
depression, carpal tunnel syndrome, or cancer care may benefit from a
mind-body approach to healing.
For conditions which are likely to benefit from a mind-body approach to healing, Dr. Windsor
includes these approaches into the treatment plan. Typically these are
provided in a format which is integrated along with acupuncture therapy
because this is a well established method of harmonizing the emotions.
In addition to acupuncture, Dr. Windsor also provides some instruction
in meditation. Meditation is a discipline that anyone can practice to
enhance wellbeing, healing, and performance. Although books, apps, and
videos can sometimes help along our journey, there may also be times
when interactive instruction is beneficial for starting or rejuvenating a
meditation practice. This may be especially true when dealing with a
significant health concern which needs a more specialized approach to
During meditation practice our thoughts and feelings can become more
fluid and open to change. This can assist us in letting go of pain
associated with various internal states of the energetic body. By
gaining more freedom around our habitual thoughts and feelings, we gain
more freedom with other aspects of our being as well.
From a peaceful and lively state of being, the energetic and chemical
signals of the body are less likely to promote disease and more likely
to promote healing. For those of us who value inner peace, the body will
function more optimally when every minute of the day is infused with
serenity, vitality, and a sense of connectedness.
If we can achieve this through the development of internal skills, or
through other methods such as physical exercise, then the inflammatory
signals of the body will be regulated more effectively. This enables
physical maintenance to proceed without blockages. Evidence indicates
that these sorts of processes can affect the expression of DNA through
the modification of proteins bound to DNA. In biomedical research, this
is known as the field of epigenetics.
