Reasons Why Yoga and Reiki are Great for Physical Therapy

If you’re recovering from surgery, suffering from an illness, or have a chronic condition then you should give some serious consideration to incorporating Yoga into your treatment plan because it offers many benefits for patients of any age. Many patients are unaware of the fact that Yoga works well in conjunction with other physical therapies. In essence, Yoga not only can help you deal with your symptoms with a lot less stress, but also supports the process of healing. For example, Yoga can greatly improve your balance, flexibility and overall strength.

The deep breathing and slow movements of Yoga warm up your muscles. In addition, holding poses is great for building up strength. Yoga also goes a long way in easing the symptoms of arthritis. In essence, it tends to lessen the discomfort that patients have when their joints are swollen. Yoga is also known to significantly reduce stress levels, lower high blood pressure, and reduce weight. These are all factors that have tremendous benefits for your heart, so when all is said and done, Yoga is a great heart healthy activity.

Since Yoga can be so relaxing, it can actually help you sleep better. In essence, it can help you prepare your body to not only fall asleep better, but to stay asleep throughout the night or day depending on your schedule. Yoga can also provide you with more positive energy on both a physical and mental basis. The bottom line is that patients who participate in Yoga sessions tend to be more alert, enthusiastic, and feel better overall. Last but certainly not least, Yoga is known to reduce back pain. That is due to the fact that Yoga can be used to stretch the back muscles, which in turn tends to improve mobility, and ease the pain levels for patients who suffer from lower back pain.
