How can Yoga Therapy address such a wide range of health conditions?

 

If properly guided, traditional yogic techniques can be used to balance the body’s Central Nervous System. This often regulates all the other systems of the body including the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, immune/lymphatic, and endocrine systems, etc. Because of the chronic stress we place on our systems due to modern lifestyle choices and conditions, we can achieve improved health when we use yoga to activate the Parasympathetic Nervous System (“rest and digest” response) and calm the Sympathetic Nervous System (“fight or flight” response). In other words, our aim is to help you achieve a more holistic approach to recovery, and we have witnessed amazing results! Our clients often experience relief in at least one or more symptoms from our Yoga Therapy sessions. In many incidences, an effective yoga therapy program can even aid to reduce or prevent the dependency of drugs and invasive procedures.

It can also serve as a great complement to pre- or post-treatment plans. Those who may have not been cleared by doctors to begin a physical practice are guided with breathing and meditation practices. Countless research has shown these techniques are extremely effective in affecting the nervous system.There is a reason why these techniques are still practiced after thousands of years – because they work! And most importantly, even those without ailments benefit by strengthening their body’s systems to combat potential health risks as we age.

 

Depending on your needs, we may also incorporate components of modern techniques (such as personal training, pilates, physical therapy, chiropratic, psychology, etc.) so that you benefit from modern science and studies as well. Most importantly, yoga therapy addresses mental, emotional, and behavioral components – factors often neglected in today’s health care system.
