The Mind-Body Connection
The mind-body connection is an integral part of our existence. Our every emotion, feeling, thought, or idea has an impact on our physiological functioning. Our body has a specialized chemical language and it has been established that emotions, thoughts, and perceptions are also translated into this language, which then has a strong impact on the biological functions of our body, regulating hormone release and even immunity.
- Brighter Mood
- Mental Clarity and
- Enhanced Focus
- Better Sleep
Establishing Mind-Body Connection
The mind-body connection has been studied extensively, and various neuroscientists have identified very real effects of psychological stress on our body.
George Solomon, who was a psychiatrist, identified in 1964 that patients with rheumatoid arthritis had a much more difficult disease course if they suffered from psychological conditions like anxiety or depression, and also had much more inflammation.
This observation led to the belief that stressors have an impact on immunity and the immune system. Later on the
effects of stressors on blood pressure and other physical conditions were identified, and the belief that the mind
affects our body kept getting stronger.
Professionals at Manhattan Medical Arts strongly believe and advocate the impacts of stress on our health – keeping this in consideration, our specialists are dedicated to help patients strengthen their mind-body connection, which eventually leads to a healthier mind as well as body.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) works especially well for patients suffering from phobias and psychiatric conditions like OCD.
