Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness in the present moment. It is a powerful tool that can offset the constant distractions of our multimedia society. The quality of mindfulness can be developed through the practice of meditation. Regular practice has been associated with an enhanced feeling of well-being.

There is a mountain of research that demonstrates that having a mindfulness practice provides health benefits for a wide range of conditions including anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, chronic pain and more. In fact, these benefits can be detected through positive changes on MRI scans of the brain after only 8 weeks of meditation training and a daily practice.

Dr. Michael Torreiter, Naturopathic Doctor at Healing Path, offers training in meditation techniques in his naturopathic visits. After an in-office mindfulness exercise, he provides a plan to help you incorporate mindfulness into your daily life. Dr. Michael is certified in Applied Mindfulness Meditation from the University of Toronto.
