How Yoga and body based techniques can help....
Stress, anxiety, PTSD and traumatic experiences affect both mind and body....
For many people, the physical effects of severe stress, anxiety, trauma and PTSD are as distressing and difficult to manage as the mental and emotional effects of these conditions. These can range from sleep distubances, digestive disorders, pain and inflammation as well as the sheer physical discomfort of fight & flight / high anxiety states. Some treatment approaches can neglect the fact that the body is in as much distress as the mind at times and that one certainly affects the other. While counselling and other talking therapies are so often transforming and necessary, working directly with the body in addition could lead to a greater level of recovery. Indeed, leading neuroscientists and psychologists now recognise that calming practices such as restorative yoga, mindfulness, relaxation and some massage/touch therapies can calm down both the body as well as the mind on multiple levels. At Lucia's Light, a skilful blend of these approaches is tailor made to suit your specific needs.

◆ Trauma sensitive Yoga Therapy (may include adapted yoga poses, breathwork, meditation, relaxation, sound therapy)
◆ Thai and Indian (Ayurvedic) massage therapy
