Yoga therapy clinics now offering emergency sessions for pain relief and natural healing

Emergency yoga

(NaturalNews) It seems that people suffering with minor aches and pains have recently started to opt for Yoga Emergency Therapy over a visit to the urgent care clinic or hospital emergency room. Yoga Therapy Clinics specialize in problems relating to pain or anxiety, and have become increasingly popular as an alternative treatment for those who don't want to visit an urgent care center or wait until their next yoga class.

A Yoga Therapy Clinic offers a fast way of getting relief for pain or anxiety, without the need for a prescription. Using these specialized breathing and relaxation techniques to calm your mind and relax your body, yoga therapists hope to relieve some of the pain and help the patient feel stronger both emotionally and physically.

Yoga for pain relief

Yoga has long been considered a good way to treat many aches and pains, from simple joint pain to other common aches. In fact, 20 years of studies by researchers at Duke University Medical Center have found that yoga is "effective in the treatment of chronic pain, including osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia," as reported by Prevention.

If performed correctly, yoga helps fluid movements and improves joint movement in swollen or otherwise painful areas, increasing overall mobility and also strength.

Yoga for anxiety

Meanwhile, yoga is also thought to be a successful tool for managing anxiety and panic attacks, with asanas and careful breathing acting to calm the mind and smooth out stress. A 2011 study from Harvard showed that 3 percent of people across the U.S. have been advised by their health care practitioners to use mind-body therapies like yoga and meditation to treat anxiety.

On a basic level, meditative practices can help calm an overactive brain, keeping you focused on the moment and the feeling of the breath moving in and out of your body. A single session of yoga or meditation can lower your anxiety, however, if you want to reduce your tendency to worry, consider taking up yoga on a daily basis.

Meditation teaches people mind skills that counteract the tendency to get carried away with worrying about things that may or may not happen, allowing you to stay in the moment and recognize worried thoughts when they're happening.

Experts agree that a combination of asana, pranayama (specialized breathing) and mindfulness or meditation is likely to be the "most effective at quelling apprehension," as reported by Yoga Journal. "Meditative yoga programs have been found to alleviate anxiety in women with depression," and are fantastic for pregnant women who are suffering with anxiety but don't want to take medication.

Emergency Yoga Clinics

According to Dr. Tsao-Wei Liang from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, "any person could benefit from yoga. Joint issues, knee, and shoulder issues can be improved by yoga." One of the most common complaints relieved at yoga clinics is text neck – the straining of your neck from always looking down at your phone or spending your day in front of a computer.

While Emergency Yoga Clinics are probably not where you should go in case of real emergencies, it is worth considering a visit to one if you are looking for some immediate relief from joint pain, and don't have time to go to the doctor to find out the cause.

Yoga, in combination with medication for an illness, has proven to provide greater relief from aches and pains than medication alone – and it is a great way to take some time out of your busy life and focus on yourself.
