What is Yoga Therapy?

 

Yoga Therapy is a discipline created by the coming together of traditional yoga and modern science. It is the ‘specialisation ‘of yoga which tailors yoga practices to the individual needs of people with health problems.

 

Yoga Therapy, as we know it relies on medical diagnostic information. It then works alongside medical treatment and complements it. Yoga Therapy works holistically on the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual levels to help relieve illness, restore and promote health and wellbeing.

 

Many controlled trials have indicated that Yoga Therapy can help in the management of Asthma, Diabetes and Heart Disease. Also case studies have shown that back pain can be relieved through Yoga Therapy.

 

I have added 16 months of training with Yoga Therapy Ireland to my 500 hour Yoga teacher Training. This training has provided me with a deeper grounding in anatomy, physiology, pathology and the application of yoga practices to a range of medical conditions.

 

I can work one to one with you and give you a program that is specifically for you.

Aromatherapy oils are naturally fragrant oils that come from a variety of plants, flowers and fruit and contain many therapeutic properties that have been known for centuries, originating in ancient Egyptian, Chinese and Middle Eastern cultures. Combining essential oils with Reflexology has many health benefits as together they can stimulate and enhance the body’s ability to rebalance itself and heal. When inhaled the aroma of the essential oils is processed by the brain producing strong physiological and psychological effects.

Reflexology is a natural, gentle healing therapy dating back to ancient Egypt and China. It uses specific techniques and pressures on the feet and hands to clear congested energy pathways within the body, activating the body to heal itself and regain its natural state of wellness and balance. The anatomy of the body is understood to be mapped out in reflex zones on the feet and by stimulating a reflex it can have a positive effect on the corresponding organ or body system. A treatment can therefore benefit the whole body and help to maintain or restore good health.

Essential Oils are massaged into the feet using reflexology techniques increasing heat and circulation and the absorption of the oils (containing specific healing properties) into the skin and blood stream. Different oils are chosen and blended depending on the health and healing needs of a client to create a desired effect such as enhancing mood, relaxation, mental/physical invigoration, pain relief. Incorporating Aromatherapy into reflexology treatments offers a wonderful sensory journey to wellbeing and can be used effectively to treat a wide variety of common complaints including:

Reducing stress related disorders, alleviate anxiety & depression, enhance mood,  Improve sleep and reduce fatigue, Relieve headaches, arthritis, Help to improve respiratory problems such as asthma, sinuses, hay fever, Pain relief, Ease tension & aching muscles, Relief of painful menstruation, symptoms of PMS/menopause, Relief of digestive problems, Strengthening the immune and nervous system.
