Achieving optimum wellness is as important to your daily routine as your practice of yoga. Bodywork, private classes, and coaching can support your emotional and physical wellness.
Naturopathic medicine seeks to address the root cause of illness or disease, using a scientific approach which draws upon the healing powers of nature. Natural techniques and therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, and lifestyle counseling can be used to treat both acute and chronic conditions.
Naturopathic medicine plays an important role in integrative health care, and can be used in conjunction with conventional medical care. It is covered by most comprehensive health insurance plans and may include any or all of the following components depending on the needs of the client.
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Julie Thorpe to PranaShanti yoga Centre to assist you in your health and wellness journey.
Acupuncture is an element of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has been practiced for thousands of years. Acupuncture may be used to relieve pain, to boost immune function, or to help facilitate the mind/body connection. Very thin needles are placed at various points of the body to help regulate energy flow, or Qi. When Qi is well-balanced and flowing smoothly, the body is better able to adapt to mental, physical, and emotional stressors.
Herbal medicine is a time honoured healing practice which uses the flowers, roots, leaves, or oils of a plant for their powerful nutritional and medicinal properties. This tradition is becoming more commonly used as advances in clinical research continue to show the value of herbal medicine in treating and preventing disease.
Healthy food is the cornerstone of wellness and affects the way the body functions. An individualized approach to the diet will help ensure that the right foods are emphasized more often, helping the body resist illness and become more resilient.
Learning about the elements of a healthy lifestyle can help assist in identifying and adjusting life patterns that contribute to illness. Understanding and practicing the principles of whole person wellness contribute to achieving the best results from naturopathic treatments and maintain wellness over the long term.
