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. Yoga therapy assists the systems of the body to function as efficiently, effectively and naturally as possible which is why it may be an appropriate treatment to consider for insomnia. The aim is not simply to help heal the specific symptoms but to target the cause and therefore help to stop the ailment or injury returning. Therapists experienced in yoga techniques are located in Billericay, Hayling Island and Mum And Stratford.
If you have ever suffered with the frustrating effects of never being able to get off to sleep, or sleeping for only a short while and then waking only to find returning to sleep is elusive, then you will have experienced insomnia. With yoga, our bodies relax and they can then recharge on a mental and physical level. Meditation techniques turn our focus inwards to a quiet space of stillness, helping one cultivate an inner happiness and calm in everyday life. Yoga therapists who are able to discuss your concerns regarding sleep issues are available in Aberdeen, Beginners and Oxford.
During yoga, particular emphasis is placed on breathing techniques as these 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, which in turn may help to re-establish correct sleep patterns. If you would like to find out more about this relaxing treatment we have yoga therapists in Reigate, Liverpool and Grazalema.
Anyone can practice yoga – any age, any level of fitness and any range of flexibility. Other benefits of yoga include allowing mood to stabilise and improve, self-acceptance increases, anxiety decreases, energy increases and as a result of all these improvements sleep cycles tend to improve also. Yoga therapists who are sympathetic and available to talk through and make a plan for treatment you both feel is appropriate are located in Martial Woking, Canary Wharf and Southampton.
Yoga is about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. Yoga creates a feeling of relaxation and helps us cope better with situations that put our body and mind under strain making it a good choice for those wishing to address insomnia.
