Back pain and sciatica are very common complaints seen in our office and back pain ...read more

Guided meditations are a supportive and great way to begin a daily practice and there are many great cd's or support groups to get you started, but meditation can also be a very personal journey, and while guided meditations will get you well and truly on your way, sitting in contemplation with only the self can be a positive and deeply transformative experience.
