Mind Body Medicine: Healthy Weight Loss Solution
Lighten Up is a two-track comprehensive lifestyle program based on the principles and practices of mind body medicine. These outpatient treatments are designed to correct and maximize metabolism through changes in lifestyle behaviors and attitudes that build resiliency and allow the body to move toward its healthy weight.
To help you reach your goals, we offer the following groups that emphasize the different aspects of weight loss:
I. Relaxation Response Resiliency Program. This eight-week program focuses on practicing meditation techniques and positive coping strategies that use the mind’s ability to reduce stress and improve symptoms. The program meets at the following times and locations:
The cost is $400 -- $360 if prepaid.
II. Food and Fitness. This eight-week program focuses on the body’s ability to decrease stress through aerobic and strength training activities, yoga, making healthy food choices, and mindful eating. The program will meet Thursday evenings from 5:30 - 7:30 pm at MGH West, Waltham.
The cost is $500 -- $450 if prepaid.
Program Goals Include
