Energy anatomy encompasses the integrative physical therapy practices of yogic meditation, light and chromotherapy, Ayurvedic and yoga “lock” practices. Women’s health and orthopaedic function, specifically lumbopelvic, shoulder complex, hip, and cervical spine yoga postures will be taught for improving musculoskeletal function. Meditation, light and chromotherapy, and Ayurvedic practices will be taught in order to influence neuroendocrine, cardiopulmonary, and neurovascular function.
Evidence supports cardiovascular, psycho-emotional, neuroendocrine, and neurophysiological benefits from the practice of meditation alone, citing improved cellular and adrenal regulation which affects overall systemic health. Additional evidence based energy anatomy practices included in this course also directly affect orthopaedic and women’s health through recalibration of ancient yoga postures for safety and clinical efficacy.
Adding energy anatomy methods to your toolbox can help improve patient outcomes, lower practitioner burnout, and manage stress in both patient and clinician.
