Mindfulness Meditation.

Mindfulness Meditation can help you to relax quickly and effectively, improve concentration, cope with pain and cultivate a deep sense of well-being and happiness.

About Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness is a stream of meditation at the centre of much academic research and is particularly useful for dealing with pain. It is a technique, or tool for cultivating insight, clarity and understanding.

In a health context, this involves gaining a greater understanding (through direct experience) of your own nature and habitual thoughts, the interplay between your mind and body which can lead to profound changes.

Over two decades of published research indicates that the majority of people who complete Mindfulness based courses report:

  • Lasting decreases in physical and psychological symptoms
  • An increased ability to relax
  • Reductions in pain levels and an enhanced ability to cope with pain that may not go away
  • Greater energy and enthusiasm for life
  • An ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations.

What we Do

Physiotherapist, Marelle Wilson, has undergone extensive training in Mindfulness Meditation, and teaches people in a 1:1 within our treatment rooms and class setting how to incorporate this into their daily lives.

Marelle is an Associate of Openground, which is Australia’s largest Mindfulness training network which is endorsed by:

Mindfulness Mediation can be taught in conjunction with Physiotherapy treatment, as a standalone treatment, or through a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course.

Where to Start

Depending on your individual circumstances, it may be beneficial for you to choose one pathway over another. The main Mindfulness Meditation options are listed below:

  1. Individual Sessions
  2. MBSR Course

Individual Sessions

This pathway is encouraged for those wanting a more flexible option for Mindfulness practice, and the ability to move at their own pace.

We require 60 minutes for your initial Mindfulness Meditation assessment to thoroughly go through your history, goals, and any other questions you may have. This is a fact finding session, and will be integral in determining what follow up sessions are recommended.

Generally, our Physiotherapist takes you through a meditation within the session, and provides you with a recommended treatment plan to guide you through your options. These may include home practice, ongoing 1:1 sessions or the more specific Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course. As every person is different, our treatment plans change depending on what your goals are.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course

This 8 week evidence based course has benefited those with stress, chronic pain, and anxiety – as well as those who simply want to improve their mental well-being.

The course is comprised of eight 2.5 hour classes, plus a full day retreat. You are also supplied with mindfulness recordings and a work book to carry out daily home practice.
