It will also increase physical flexibility, strength and vitality as well as enhance mental clarity and focus.

Through meditation clients can learn how to shut off noise and redirect thoughts that are no longer serving a purpose. Meditation can assist in controlling one’s mood, increase self-esteem, promote creativity, decrease cravings, and manage discomfort.
