Mindfulness is an ancient practice based in Buddhist traditional meditation that has been adapted for the West and popularised since the 1970s.
Far from being feel-good mumbo jumbo, scientists and researchers globally can attest to the effectiveness of mindfulness practices to work with a variety of conditions from post traumatic stress disorder and chronic anxiety through to depression and debilitating pain.
More recently a variety of studies have conclusively proven that mindfulness is also especially effective in working with problems of sex and intimacy. Research has shown that low sexual desire is experienced by the majority (75%) of older women, 39% of women aged 45-64, and 22% of younger women and been effectively treated with the application of sex-specific mindfulness programs. Beyond this mindfulness practices have also been helpful in working with symptoms of genital / sexual pain, gynecological cancer and distress from a history of sexual abuse.
