A body scan is a practice that involves breathing into the various parts of the body and paying attention to any sensations you are experiencing. The mental scan allows you to bring awareness to the various parts of body and identify any aches, tension or discomfort you might feel. It allows you to become in tune with your body and bring yourself to into the present moment. It’s a technique that can be used as a holistic method of pain management, as well as management of anxiety and depression.
