Meditation Therapy

What is Reflective Meditation Therapy?

Reflective meditation therapy is defined as the tranquil period in which the body is at rest and the mind is still highly alert. This ancient practice of meditation has extensive benefits for healing, trauma treatment and drug rehab and can be an important supplement to successful pain recovery. Meditation techniques are non-religious and do not require any specific beliefs or special clothes and do not necessitate the adoption of a particular lifestyle. Because meditation therapy does not require effort but rather encourages effortlessness, it can be a powerful tool for providing the relaxation needed for effective psychological therapy and anorexia, binge eating or bulimia treatment.

To practice meditation, whether daily in your own home or in a clinical setting like that of anorexia treatment or bulimia help, all you need to do is be present and focus on what you are doing in the current moment. Meditation supplies your entire body/mind/spirit system with an extremely deep state of rest and relaxation, which is much deeper than is possible by other means. Meanwhile the truly profound underlying benefits occur naturally.

The results from nearly 40 years of well-documented scientific research studies and thousands of years of Eastern practice validate the amazing benefits of meditation. One study proved that meditation can improve immune system functioning and produce significant increases in left-sided anterior brain activity, which is associated with positive emotional states. It has also been said that meditation therapy has a profound impact on those in eating disorder treatment and on anyone attending a drug and alchol rehab center. This therapy also relaxes the body and produces a tranquil state of mind that is not infiltrated by distracting and unimportant thoughts.
