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. 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 therapies 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 some touch therapies can alter the autonomic nervous system profoundly (regulating fight and flight mechanisms), influence hormonal production and stability and even change mood and negative thinking.  
Therapeutic approaches for stress, anxiety and PTSD/Trauma at Lucia's Light are offered individually (recommended intially) and in small specialised classes. Treatment programmes often include: ◆ Trauma sensitive Yoga Therapy (including adapted yoga poses and practices, relaxation, sound therapy)  
◆ Marma Acupoint Massage  
◆ Ayurvedic nutritional approaches  
◆ Mindfulness based approaches  
Lucia's Light, based in Colchester, Essex can assist with your physical and mental recovery. Why not get in contact for more information or request an appointment? 

The Process... 

Louise Fortunato 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 some cases, longer-term support can also be offered.
