About the Program

Led by integrative physicians and holistic health providers, One Medical’s stress and anxiety management program consists of four weekly group sessions. It’s an introductory course designed to acquaint participants with several highly efficient and effective stress relief techniques, all within a supportive and safe community atmosphere.

Why It’s Unique

In this program, we focus on experiential skill training, so you’ll learn highly practical tools in each session that you can practice immediately. One Medical health coaches will also participate to help guide you in how to incorporate these tools into your busy life.

Now Enrolling

We’re now enrolling participants for the following Shift series:

Wednesdays, October 30th, November 6th, 13th, and 20th, from 6:30-8:15pm.

Workshop Location

One Medical – Dupont Circle Office
1350 Connecticut Ave NW, Suite 1250
Washington, DC 20036

Program Cost

Each session is billed to your insurance as a medical visit, so you will simply have to pay your regular copay, co-insurance, or deductible owed, depending on your insurance benefits.


You’ll need to commit to attending all four 105-minute group meetings, on the consecutive Wednesdays listed above. We also ask that you practice your new skills for 10 minutes a day during the course of the workshop series.

What to Expect

Shift is a skills-based approach to stress and anxiety management. It is most beneficial for individuals struggling with stress management, generalized anxiety, and insomnia.* Shift is not group therapy, but does leverage the group format to facilitate a shared learning experience, and can be very effective when done in conjunction with therapy.

You’ll learn seven highly effective skills that can be easily incorporated into a busy and stressful life. These include:

  • Breath work
  • Posturing
  • Visualization
  • Healthy self-talk
  • Progressive muscle relaxation
  • Metta meditation
  • Mindfulness

The program is educational, fun, experiential, and transformative. We’ll provide healthy snacks after each session.
