Why choose to incorporate Health and Wellness Therapy into your life?
Dr. Black utilizes a unique "tool box" of therapies to help clients heal and move forward on a path to health and wellness. These tools include counselling, structural alignment of the body, mindful movement, guided meditation, Reiki, infrared sauna use and more.
Dr. Black meets with clients for an extensive initial intake appointment. Following this appointment, a second appointment is booked where Therapy Clients are provided with a full analysis and plan of action incorporating appropriate therapies for their specific situation. The major goal of Heat to Heal Yoga Therapy is to help clients move gently and effectively into a healthy lifestyle and to find relief from pain.
What is the difference between yoga therapy and other types of therapy?
"Yoga Therapy is a subset of Yoga, but represents a different skill set as well as a different set of intentions and goals," Gary Kraftsow explains in Yoga Therapy Today, Vol 7, Issue 3.
Yoga therapy seeks to help clients reduce symptoms of pain or suffering in the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual areas of their life and improve their day to day lifestyle and functionality.
Yoga therapy utilizes not just yoga asana (postures) or pranayama (breathing) or meditation, but looks at the entire person from both an Ayurvedic and Western Medical point of view.
