Integrative Spirituality and Science

Many of the mind-body techniques Dr. McSweeney uses in her practice, such as meditation, biofeedback, and Energy Psychology, have their roots in ancient spiritual traditions.  These techniques are also currently being studied and validated by the scientific community for their ability to positively alter brain activity.

   Today, with the use of brain scans, science has been able to observe the effects of trauma, depression, and other emotional states on brain activity.  Likewise, there is now scientific evidence that regular meditation practice does enhance brain functioning, such as promoting frontal lobe activity which controls motivation.  Energy Psychology techniques have been found to "re-balance" the brain by reversing the effects of traumatic experiences.  Biofeedback, which relies on the mental focusing component of meditation, has been demonstrated to lower heart rate, blood pressure, and improve circulation.  In these techniques, Western science and Eastern spiritual practice come together to offer powerful tools for healing and self-awareness.
