NEW PALTZ, N.Y. - Nov. 12, 2015 - PRLog -- New York, NY - Richard P. Brown, MD, and Patricia Gerbarg, MD, award-winning authors and leaders in Integrative Psychiatry, will teach their evidence-based Breath~Body~Mind workshop “Stay Younger as You Live Longer” November 20-22, 2015 at Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY. The event takes place Friday evening through noon on Sunday and is open to anyone interested in reducing stress and improving emotional and physical health. In addition, optional lectures with 9.0 CME/CEU credits are included for health care professionals, psychologists, psychiatrists, physicians, counselors, and others. Mohonk Mountain House, named no. 1 Resort Spa in the USA (Conde Nast Traveler magazine), is located on a lake overlooking the Schwangunk Mountains of the Hudson Valley.

Drs. Brown and Gerbarg offer refined techniques to reduce physical and psychic pain, and address key components affecting quality of life as we age. They teach three powerful practices: Breath~Body~Mind, Qigong, and Open Focus.

The gentle movement and breathing practices of Breath~Body~Mind activate anti-pain, anti-inflammation, and anti-stress effects of the parasympathetic nervous system. Qigong movements enhance circulation and healing. Through Open Focus Attention Training the mind learns how to dissolve emotional and physical pain. These practices also heighten the ability to experience closeness, empathy, bonding, and love. Close relationships are considered crucial for a long and happy life.

Individuals suffering from stress, back pain, arthritis, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, TMJ (temporomandibular joint pain), inflammatory bowel disease, military combat related injuries, and many other conditions report significant relief after participating in Breath~Body~Mind workshops.
