All of us have heard stories of people who have healed themselves with the power of positive thinking. There is also often a misconception that if we can think positively, ALL illness and pain can be cured.

Learn strategies that will help the mind be more peaceful and positive during the healing process. Our presenter this month is Merrillyn Hener. Merrillyn has a master’s degree in physical therapy from Boston University.
