Yoga as a Complimentary Therapy

During my 20 years as a Paramedic I have witnessed some of the amazing effects of life saving drugs and surgery, I also witnessed a growing population becoming more dependant on pharmaceuticals. Many patients had been prescribed drugs without the opportunity to talk to their General Practitioner about lifestyle habits that could be changed to improve their general health or illness. Over the years I've seen a growing problem of poor mental health, I was exposed to the growing mental health crisis first hand working as part of a Mental Health team within the NHS.

 

As I noticed the benefits Yoga was giving to people I began study the Science behind Yoga and a healthy lifestyle to improve health conditions, for example, did you know that Type 2 diabetes can be reversed by an extremely low-calorie diet rather than regular medication?  I soon learned that although medication is an option, there is an integrative approach that can lead patients towards recovery with particular focus on the four core pillars for health, "movement, mindfulness, diet and sleep".

Through studying Yoga Therapy it became apparent that Yoga was not just a series of movements for physical strength and balance, but a way of life that lead to strong mental wellbeing, emotional balance, and a way of releasing any mental and physical tensions that can hold us back from optimal health.

I draw knowledge from my Yoga teachings, my medical degree, my Paramedic role, my Counselling training and my personal healing journey.  My therapeutic approach empowers you to find the strength within yourself to get the most out of your life using Yoga Therapy as a complimentary therapy.
