Recovery from anxiety, PTSD & trauma through yoga, bodywork and marma therapy    


Are you struggling with extreme stress, panic attacks, anxiety or PTSD? 

Lucia's Light offers therapeutic yoga, relaxation, mindfulness (where appropriate) and a type of acupressure massage known as marma therapy to assist with the symptoms and side effects of stress, anxiety based conditions and PTSD. Run by experienced yoga therapist and mindfulness teacher Louise Fortunato, Lucia's Light offers both 1:1 treatment, as well as specialist classes and courses.  
Health in mind through the body? How? 

Stress, anxiety, PTSD and traumatic experiences affect both mind and body.... 

For many people, the physical effects of stress, anxiety, trauma and PTSD are as distressing and difficult to manage as the mental and emotional effects of these conditions. However, treatment approaches often 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 treatments are so often transforming and necessary, working directly with the body in addition could lead to a greater level of recovery. Indeed some neuroscientists and psychologists now recognise that calming practices such as yoga, grounding body work, relaxation and mindfulness techniques and some touch therapy can alter the autonomic nervous system profoundly (regulating fight and flight mechanisms), influence hormonal production and stability and even change mood and negative thinking.  
Lucia's Light has been set up to teach and deliver highly adapted body based approaches that are calming (or enlivening if necessary), restorative, easy to practice and tailored both to specific conditions and you as an individual.  
Lucia's Light, based in Colchester, Essex can assist with your recovery. Why not get in contact for more information or request an appointment? 

The Process... 

Louise offers an initial consultation and 1:1 tailored treatment for those seeking respite from the symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression or trauma 

Treatment programmes are tailor made to the individual allowing for a recovery plan that avoids a one size fits all approach. A session is likely to last a maximum of 1.5 hours and costs £50. Usually a minimum of six sessions is necessary in order for the treatment to be implemented effectively and for the client to be able to practice at home safely and appropriately. However, in severe cases, the treatment may be ongoing for some time.
