Improving Medical Outcomes with Mindfulness Techniques

Menla invites you to a weekend discussion about our developing Mindfulness program.  With a strong framework already in place, this cutting-edge Mindfulness program is geared toward improving patient outcomes and is in the research and development phase. We are currently looking for input from doctors to improve our offering, which is why we are hosting this one-time weekend retreat at a highly discounted rate that simply covers Menla's cost.We will demonstrate the tremendous potential for tailoring mindfulness practices towards the needs of those with a specific diagnosis, such as Parkinson’s, cancer, or diabetes.  We will present a few sample workshops, case studies, workshops on food, and our world-class spa treatments.  It will also briefly  take you through the envisioned program which currently includes a high degree of customization for patients, including culinary expertise with wholefood artisanal touch specific to diagnosis, individual sleep consultation with natural teas at night, immersion in natural surroundings to lower stress, mindfulness practices for better living and behavioral treatment planning that allows these teachings to extend into daily life. Most importantly, this retreat will have a heavy focus open discussion and encourage dialogue to improve the program. It will also present possible ways to be covered by insurance.
