The yoga therapist at Fitness Canada Physio and Massage Centre is a clinician who combines sound knowledge in these principles of yoga therapy with a background in modern medicine. There is lots of research available to support the clinical benefits of Yoga therapy. While yoga by itself can alleviate a number of problems, it is particularly effective as a complement to other forms of healthcare, both alternative and conventional. Studies suggest, for example, that yoga therapy can lessen the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments for people with cancer and facilitate faster recovery after bypass surgery. In clinical trials, many patients with asthma, type 2 diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes), or high blood pressure, began a regular practice of yoga was able to either lower their drug dosage or eliminate some pills entirely. Less medication means fewer side effects, and, sometimes, very substantial cost savings.
