Origin of MINDFULGym
What is MINDFULGym?
MINDFULGym is a stress reduction and wellness program developed by the consultant psychiatrist and mindfulness-based therapist Dr. Phang Cheng Kar (M.D.). It's based on ancient spiritual wisdom and state-of-the-art scientific research in mindfulness, cognitive behavior therapy, and positive psychology.
MINDFULGym is similar to the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) programs developed in the United States and the United Kingdom respectively.
Customized for the multiethnic Malaysian community and supported by 12 local scientific research, MINDFULGym is the most evidence-based and leading mindfulness program in Malaysia.
The program has been shown to reduce psychological distress and improve emotional well-being among medical students, nurses, school teachers, patients with anxiety and/or depressive disorders, cancer patients, parents of children with autism, and general adults in the community.
