Mind and body medicine

A central element of algarveda is ordinal therapy. A balanced lifestyle with sufficient exercise, healthy food and stress management is not the only thing that contributes to this. Also important are thoughts and feelings, because there is a close connection between psyche, body and behaviour.

Help for self-help

Mind-body medicine is a self-help approach. MBM helps our participants to increase mindfulness in everyday life and focuses on the interactions between mind, body and behaviour. In doing so, patients are made aware of emotional, mental, social, spiritual and behavioural factors, among others, that can directly influence health. It respects and promotes each person’s capacity for self-knowledge and self-care. In summary, various techniques are used to promote this approach. Their healing effect is scientifically proven and established nationwide.

Getting self-awareness

As part of our retreat programme, you will have the opportunity to learn various techniques, have one-to-one psychological sessions and enter into the exciting self-awareness of Mind Body Medicine.
