Traditional East Asian healthcare has always included an emphasis on self treatment as well as interventions such as herbs or acupuncture or massage. Specific exercises could be prescribed therapeutically for specific conditions, but there was also a culture of self cultivation that stressed the use of exercises to strengthen the body and mind. In keeping with this tradition we wanted to offer classes in systems that promoted health and vitality such as taichi, chi gong, yoga, breathing exercises, meditation etc. Regular practice of any of these can substantially improve one’s well being and complement any of the treatments described on this site.
We offer a range of therapeutic exercises such as:
Combinations of static and moving postures for body alignment and circulation of blood and breath.
Simple slow and coordinated movements for posture and relaxation.
Hatha Yoga is taught with an emphasis on back care and for the calming of the nervous system to help conditions related to anxiety.
