“Yoga Therapy-Yoga as medicine: Unlocking the Hidden Vitality”
Who Can Benefit from Yoga Therapy? Medical research shows that Yoga therapy is among the most effective complementary therapies for several common ailments such as;
- Heart disease
- Depression or anxiety
- Coping with the effects of cancer treatments
- Musculoskeletal issues like lower back pain, sciatica, and shoulder, neck and hip pain
Yoga therapy is particularly appropriate for many chronic conditions that persist despite conventional medical treatment. One way to think yoga therapy is as replacement therapy – replacing old bad habits which create pain with better new ones.
By combining different techniques such as Yoga, Pilates, Fitness, Meditation, Visualization, Thai Yoga Massage, Tai Chi, Chi Gung, Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais, Gyrotonics and Continuum Movement, yoga therapy promotes specific changes in muscles, joints, organs and eventually cells altering the vital functions of the body.
