Learn about Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

The Center for Integrative Medicine is offering a free introduction to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction on Thursday, September 1, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm at 607-B Dutchman’s Lane in Easton.

The session will be led by Larissa Kitenko, PharmD. A clinical pharmacist for Shore Health System, Dr. Kitenko is an experienced meditation practitioner. She completed the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teacher training program at the University of Massachusetts.

Research on mindfulness-based stress reduction has shown that this practice can bring about tranquility, mental clarity and the ability to reduce stress. Results have been particularly effective for people experiencing chronic pain, heart problems, high blood pressure, headaches and fatigue.

The lecture will include the opportunity to learn and practice mindfulness-based stress reduction meditation. Participants will also receive information about the next eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 20.

For more information and to register for the free lecture, call 410-770-9400.

The Center for Integrative Medicine is an affiliate of Shore Health System. The center offers acupuncture, massage, psychotherapy and reflexology. To learn more, visit
