Aproteem Choudhury – Research, Advocacy, and Delivery of Trauma Informed Mind-Body Medicine

Aproteem Choudhury is passionate about promoting and supporting our innate potential to heal by developing psychological and physiological resilience. Apro received his BSc in Neuroscience from the University of Texas at Dallas, and is currently studying towards a Master’s in Social Work at the University of Houston. Apro has a combined decade of biomedical (chronic pain) and psychiatric clinical research. He has been trained extensively by the Center for Mind-Body Medicine (CMBM), which has taught thousands around the world to touch the lives of millions through an effective evidence-based model of self-awareness, skills, and mutual support that helps individuals and communities face challenges and trauma. Apro is the CMBM’s youngest faculty member, training facilitators in Healthcare, Uvalde, TX, Ukraine, and Poland, a peer supervisor, as well as their Manager of Research and Partnership Development. 

At home in Houston, TX, Apro’s work is anchored in providing Mind-Body Medicine (MBM) to children facing health challenges, and their families, as the Mind Body Interventionist in the Division of Child/Adolescent Psychiatry at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, TX. At TCH, Apro is also responsible for developing interdisciplinary projects that support clinician wellness by researching how MBM can mitigate burnout and educating clinicians throughout the Texas Medical Center and the Greater Houston community. 

Focusing on a collaborative, skills-based approach, Apro gently invites his patients and clients to cultivate a familiarity with themselves, and the wisdom of their body through mind-body practices. Some of these skills are ancient, some are modern, and all have been proven across various disciplines to promote agency and well-being.

Working with Apro, you will become both the scientist and the experiment. By learning about yourself, and how to better deal with the inevitable challenges of life, it will become easier to experience the feeling of being at rest, inside yourself. Through the practice of these self-care and self-regulation skills, you can stabilize this state, (analogous to flow state, or when you’re “at your best”) which in turn will support your overall physical and emotional health, and amplify the potential impact of other therapeutics
