July 28, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Louisville, KY - July 28, 2017 - Megan Bayles Bartley, a well-known marriage and family therapist in Louisville, KY, is excited to announce that she has expanded her counseling practice by opening the region's first mindfulness center. After seeing an increase in demand for her therapeutic and meditation services, Megan hired two additional therapists to join her practice and to help establish the Louisville Mindfulness Center.

The Louisville Mindfulness Center's mission is to help participants find peace and joy within themselves, as well as in their relationships with others, through therapy, coaching, and classes. Megan, and her new team of therapists, plans to provide the necessary mental tools available to clients, so that they can more effectively deal with life's stressors in a practical manner.

Some of the therapeutic approaches offered by the Louisville Mindfulness Center include the following:
  • One-on-one sessions that address an individual's specific needs in that moment of time and are used to discuss mindfulness practices that will help relieve stress associated with the life event in question
  • Group classes which are affordable opportunities to be introduced to the practice of mindfulness or to get a "refresher" course for those who need to get back on the right track towards mindfulness
  • One-hour mindfulness meditations that introduce the practice of mindfulness to newcomers while also helping to refocus individuals who have strayed from a personal path towards mindfulness
  • Megan is making it easier to access therapeutic services incorporating a different view of mindfulness in the city of Louisville, KY. She hopes that by doing this individuals will be able to decrease their levels of anxiety, irritability, anger, depression, and fear, in a natural, effective, long-term manner. All of the coping skills taught by Megan and her team are designed to calm a person's body and rewire a person's brain to think in more peaceful and joyful terms.

    In addition to offering one-on-one sessions, group classes, and one-hour mindfulness meditations, the Louisville Mindfulness Center also collaborates with other local therapeutic businesses to bring classes and training sessions to the public. Currently, the Louisville Mindfulness Center is offering Summer Mindfulness Meditations for a special rate of $25 a class. The next 1-hour Summer Mindfulness Meditation is on August 9th from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

    Additionally, on August 31st at 6 p.m., the Louisville Mindfulness Center will provide a speaker session on "Training the Brain" at the Louisville Salt Cave. Research on salt caves and salt therapy, also called "halotherapy," shows that the immune system can truly benefit from meditative sessions in a room that is infused with salt air. Salt air can also help improve respiratory, dermatological, and mental health issues. Join Megan as she closes out Louisville Salt Cave's August Speaker Series and offers helpful bits of wisdom and an experiential practice that can calm mind, body, and soul. You can register online for this mindfulness-centered class by emailing louisvillemindfulnesscenter@gmail.com today.
