Heal: The healing art of Yoga Therapy

[vc_row full_width=”” css=”.vc_custom_1457063834351{padding-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1457064161918{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Heal: The healing art of Yoga Therapy

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Wellness-yoga
It is well known that yoga benefits the mind, body and soul, improving one’s strength, flexibility, tone and peace of mind. But, there’s a common misconception that yoga is only for the fit and able. The fact is that absolutely anyone can practice yoga and benefit from its therapeutic aspects – even someone with severe physical restrictions.
What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy encompasses a lot more than the postures and common sequences offered at gyms and yoga studios. In fact, it has been used for centuries for the recovery and healing of a variety of ailments and conditions.
How does Yoga Therapy differ from yoga?
Yoga Therapy is typically conducted one-on-one and more closely resembles an appointment with a physiotherapist or rehabilitation therapist than a typical yoga class. The yoga therapist will holistically assess the health and needs of the client and then prescribe a practice that takes into account the client’s condition, strengths, weaknesses, personality and goals.
This practice will be personally tailored to assist the individual in managing their condition, reducing their symptoms, restoring balance, increasing vitality and improving their outlook. It will incorporate a unique combination of yogic tools, such as postures or movements (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), meditation (including visualisation or yoga nidra), chanting, mudras and self-reflection. In addition to yogic practices, the Yoga Therapy session may also include lifestyle counselling and dietary advice.
Where can Yoga Therapy help?
Yoga Therapy can help with a wide range of conditions from chronic fatigue to hormone imbalances, obesity related problems and fertility.
It provides integrated recovery from common muscular-skeletal ailments and conditions such as chronic back pain (including bulging, herniated, slipped or prolapsed discs), joint injuries, scoliosis, arthritis, osteoporosis and more.
It also offers comfort to people with acute debilitating or terminal diseases. Cancer patients suffering from ongoing nausea, weakness and severe fatigue as a result of chemotherapy or radiation have found that a gentle set of therapeutic yoga poses geared for their condition has helped provide relief. Not only does Yoga Therapy help remove toxins, it can also can help dissipate tension and anxiety, enabling patients to enjoy a greater sense of ease and wellbeing.
People with mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and agoraphobia, have also found Yoga Therapy helpful in alleviating symptoms and restoring balance, harmony and joy to everyday life. Yoga Therapy is able to increase alpha brain wave activity, lower blood pressure, pulse, respiration rate, metabolic rate, oxygen consumption and anxiety, and produce a greater sense of wellbeing. Over time, practitioners develop an ability to shift into a more relaxed state in the midst of stressful situations.

Why choose Yoga Therapy over other physical therapies?
There are three key aspects of Yoga Therapy that set it apart from many other physical therapies:

  • Its holistic approach
  • Its focus on linking breath-work and mindfulness in each moment, or movement, encouraging peace and equanimity
  • The way in which it releases and liberates the mind and emotional state while restoring the physical body

In certain situations, for example when a client is undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment, the therapist may suggest that the entire practice consist only of breath awareness and visualisation. Such work has shown remarkable results in allowing the body’s innate intelligence to shift and release the stagnant blockages.

Yvonne Culhane, Advanced Dermal therapist suggests this product to be used once a day, in the morning for those who have rough and dry skin, men usually fall into this category. Those with normal to sensitive skin should use the product every second day, once a day in the morning. “Exfoliating more than recommended will push immature skin cells up to the top if the epidermis, making the skin fragile and more susceptible to UV and UVB damage. It can also strip excess oil out of the skin, results in causing the sebaceous glands to be hyperactive, to compensate for the lack of hydration” says Yvonne.

Loose skin occurs due to aging, loss of fullness and weight in various areas of the body. Loose skin on the face is a difficult area to correct even with surgery.
If you’re in search of a non-surgical solution to turn back the clock, we’ve got just the treatment for you.  Titan Laser is a skin tightening treatment that works by introducing infrared light to aging, sagging skin, it penetrates the epidermis and boosts the collagen production.

TitanSkinLaserBandAFACE
Titan Laser usually requires little to no healing time and does not carry the same kind of side effects that are common with other types of cosmetic surgery.
Unlike radiofrequency (Thermage) treatments, the infrared light that is dispensed during a Titan treatment does not penetrate the skin at the same depth. The infrared light stimulates new collagen growth deep beneath your skin’s surface. The heat from the laser caused immediate collagen contraction resulting in tighter skin.
Loose skin along the jawline, doubles chins; abdomen and arms are the most successful areas to treat. All skin types, all ages, men and women can all be candidates for this treatment.
As the Titan Laser pulses the patient will feel a brief heating sensation. Some patients choose to take a mild pain reliever prior to the treatment. Following the treatment there may be some redness and swelling in the treated area. Both symptoms will disappear within a few hours.
Depending on the area of treatment and skin some patients will see results immediately following one treatment. Most patients will see gradual results following three treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart, as new collagen is formed and the skin tightens.
