Yoga Therapy Now Offers Relief for Clients at Maryland University of Integrative Health

Dec 04, 2014 07:33PM
The first yoga therapy student interns at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) are now scheduling appointments to see clients at the college’s Natural Care Center. Yoga therapy is a rapidly growing healing discipline that is effective for a wide range of physical and emotional challenges. You likely know how effective a yoga practice can be—imagine the possibilities of using yoga therapy to heal.

Yoga therapists use the tools and practices of yoga to empower clients toward improved health and well-being through the use of postures, breathing practices, meditation and lifestyle. Yoga therapists understand the multidimensional nature of the individual and work from the premise that the physical, energy, emotional, and spiritual levels are fully integrated and inter-related.

In yoga therapy the ancient wisdom, tools and techniques of yoga combined with traditional and contemporary best practices are adapted to each individual’s unique situation and health challenge with the goal of helping clients improve, maintain and optimize health.

Because this service is part of a university clinical rotation, MUIH is able to offer care at very affordable rates. They use a team care approach in which one or two student interns and a faculty supervisor tend every client—a model that has been tremendously successful for their other clinical disciplines.

Noted by Marlysa Sullivan, the clinical supervisor, “I’m thrilled to report that every client seen by our yoga therapy student interns, with absolutely no exceptions, reported immediate and meaningful relief from myriad acute and chronic symptoms. These results demonstrate the exceptional skill of our graduate students and the power of this discipline.” Come for care and share the news about all of MUIH’s natural medicine services with your colleagues, family and friends.
