For over 40 years, Dr. Rudy Kachmann has been a highly-regarded neurosurgeon. He founded the Kachmann Mind Body Institute with a firm belief that participation in the arts, yoga, meditation, and maintaining a positive attitude are keys to a long and happy life.

Dr. Kachmann observes that the typical approach to medicine today is centered on technology, with x-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs serving as the primary basis for diagnoses that often lead to surgical solutions. Dr. Kachmann believes that the missing element in this technology-focused approach is the failure to account for the incredible power the mind has over a person’s well-being.

 “We are dedicated to bringing wellness to the community,” states Dr. Kachmann. “I believe that the vast majority of people who go to a doctor are actually in need of a coach. It is interesting that the Latin origin of the word “doctor” means “teacher,” and that is what we strive to do; teach people how to be healthy.”
