Yoga Therapy

Yoga Therapy
Yoga Therapy has been used in India for thousands of years to help heal many illnesses and physical injuries. It uses a combination of yoga practices to help restore the body and emotions to full health when illness is present. It is much more specialist than yoga with all sessions tailored to a specific ailment or injury. Yoga Therapy assists the systems of the body to function as efficiently, effectively and naturally as possible. The aim is not simply to help heal the specifc symptoms but to target the cause and therefore help to stop the ailment or injury reoccuring.

Much medical research is now available showing that Yoga Therapy is very effective in treating many conditions.

Yoga Therapy is complimentary to western medicine and should not be viewed as a substitute for a medical diagnosis or the services of a physician. Yoga Therapy can be practised in conjunction with medical treatments being received and also in tandem with other complementary therapies.

What Practices Does Yoga Therapy Use?
Depending on the client’s condition a combination of the following treatments and techniques will be recommended

Yoga Postures
Yoga postures not only work the physical structure of the body, increasing strength, flexibility and mobility; they rejuvenate and rebalance the internal systems of the body helping return them to full health.

Breathing Techniques
Yogic breathing techniques have many therapeutic benefits. The exercises will improve overall health, strengthen the respiratory and digestive systems, calm the nervous system, relieve stress and reduce cravings.
The techniques increase the intake of oxygen into the body. The increased oxygen flow permeates deep into every cell of the body, regenerating the cells, enhancing well being and aiding healing.

Relaxation Methods
When our bodies relax they recharge on a mental and physical level. Relaxation creates a feeling of well being and helps us cope better with situations that put our body and mind under strain. Meditation techniques turn our focus inwards to a quiet space of stillness, helping one cultivate an inner happiness and calm in everyday life.

    Not only is Veronique a great teacher, she is first and foremost a therapist. She can and does detect an injury or ailment and treat it through yoga while also giving you the tools to treat yourself. Veronique was recommended to me by an osteopath about a year ago when I was having severe lower back problems. I had three sessions with the osteopath, but still wasn't properly cured. He told me Veronique would help, and she did. I'm cured. Now I'm recommending Veronique to you. She is brilliant." Brendan Murphy

    "'After months of depression I booked a number of yoga therapy sessions with Veronique. Veronique gave me a number of simple but effective yoga techniques, which I can practise on my own at home. After just a few weeks I started to feel better and now 3 months after starting my Doctor is able to start to reduce my medication. I cant thank Veronique enough" Claire

    "Veroniques' Yoga Therapy Sessions are amazing. She designed a programme which has returned my high blood pressure to normal. I’m now able to practice at home on my own. I highly recommend Veronique to anyone with health problems." Andrea Peterson
