About the Program

Led by integrative physicians and holistic health providers, One Medical’s stress and anxiety management program consists of four weekly small-group workshop sessions, designed to introduce participants to several highly efficient and effective stress-relief techniques. Each session is 90 minutes. The workshops take place within a supportive and safe atmosphere over four Wednesdays.

Why It’s Unique

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

Now Enrolling

We’re now enrolling participants for our next stress and anxiety management workshop series, to be led by Casey O’Bryan, FNP, a family medicine physician with expertise in mind-body medicine.

Our next series will take place on four Thursdays: November 29th, December 6th, December 13th, and December 20th from 6:30-8:00 pm.

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, depending on your insurance benefits.

Requirements

You’ll need to commit to attending all four 90-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.*

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.
