We are excited to announce that we will now be offering therapeutic yoga as a service to help improve how the body moves and feels!
Here’s a quick refresher on yoga! Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in ancient India. In North America we mainly practice yoga to improve our bodies and minds. It involves a series of poses and deep breathing to promote endurance, flexibility, strength, balance and overall well-being. One of the main benefits of yoga is improved mobility in the body, and the alleviation of stiffness and tension.
In addition to being a fully licensed chiropractor, Dr. Elisa Petricca is also a certified Yoga Instructor. She truly believes that movement is medicine, and that yoga can help to facilitate healing. She is excited to bring in a therapeutic style of yoga to the practice to help support her patients. This may be helpful for patients recovering from injuries, can create active routines for people as a form of rehabilitation, as well as help in the prevention of future injuries.
Yoga therapy is specific to each patient, and as such, is only open to patients who have had an initial chiropractic examination at the clinic. Since yoga can be modified to accommodate for limitations, this therapy is suitable for people who are hesitant about beginning movement classes, as well as for all age groups.
We are excited to offer this movement based therapy here at Danforth East Wellness! Email Dr. Elisa today if you have questions, or book yourself in online!
See you soon!
