Be Well's Relaxation Workshop
Be Well’s second patient-centred health seminar was held last week, following on from last month’s Prostate Health seminar.
The topic this time was Relaxation Techniques and was given by Dr. Mallika Meinhold, provider of regular visiting psychology services to Be Well.
Dr. Mallika was assisted by Dr. Eckhard Maskos from Be Well’s own Advisory Committee and together they gave two interesting workshops on relaxation techniques – one in German and one in English.
Dr. Mallika showed how we can all use autogenic training, progressive muscular relaxation and guided imagery techniques to combat anxiety and stress, while Dr. Maskos, a retired anaesthetist/anesthesiologist, explained how these techniques can benefit long-term pain sufferers.
The 60-minute sessions were well attended, with 24 participants in total, all of whom are now chilled and super-relaxed for Christmas!
The next seminar will be in the New Year. Details to be posted on our website and in our membership newsletter.
