Steven Pratscher received his Ph.D. in social-personality psychology from the University of Missouri where he conducted research on interpersonal and relational effects of mindfulness and meditation. He is now a postdoctoral fellow in an integrative and multidisciplinary pain and aging research training program at the University of Florida. He’s interested in examining the effectiveness and mechanisms of action of various mind-body, complementary, and integrative interventions to improve chronic pain, as well as overall health, energy, and well-being. He’s particularly drawn to breathing and how modulating breathing influences consciousness, stress, health, pain, aging, and the body’s natural ability to heal.
