- Medical conditions (chronic pain, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, cancer, heart disease, asthma, digestive difficulties, headaches, etc.);
- Emotional distress (anxiety, panic, depression, fatigue and insomnia);
- Prevention and wellness (health enhancement, self-care and wellness focused on prevention and learning the “how” of taking good care of yourself while feeling a better sense of balance).
