What is the Therapeutic Day Protocol?
A therapeutic day is a 9-14 hour program of hands on SomaVeda® Thai Yoga therapy over a series of seven sessions. For the highest benefits, it is recommended the sessions be done in as close succession as possible.
A program begins with an Ayurvedic medical assessment, including discussion over physical and emotional issues as well as diet and lifestyle choices. With this information, we are better able to customize the sessions to meet each client’s unique and individual needs. This introduction between client and therapist is followed by a general whole-body balancing session for the purpose of basic 'house cleaning' and a hands on assessment.
The remaining sessions focus intensely on various parts of the body and mind. According to the client's needs, they are introduced to SomaVeda® BET/ Bio-Tapping (an assessment based system similar to EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique), a healing modality that uses acupressure points and specific phrasing to address unresolved negative emotions. The client, once introduced to this simple method can then practice it on their own.
A traditional therapeutic day consists of 9-14 hours of therapy and is carried out over 7 sessions. More sessions may be added when adjunct therapies are deemed appropriate. Some adjunct therapies that may be used are: Herbal remedies, Homeopathic remedies, Complex Decongestive Therapy, Aromatherapy, SomaVeda® BET/Bio-tapping, Cranio-Sacral therapy, Ayurvedic Pancha Karma (detoxifying and stress reducing herbal oil treatments,) Reiki, Reflexology and even personalized cooking and meal plan strategies. This can be decided at the start of a program or discussed as concerns come to the surface during the series.
How is it done?
SomaVeda® Thai Yoga is performed in loose comfortable garments, like those you wear to exercise or practice any form of yoga. However, during a session you aren’t exerting. You simply lay back, breathe and relax. The therapist supports and moves your body through various co-facilitated yoga postures, gentle rocking, deep stretching and rhythmic compressions encouraging your body back to it’s healthy natural state in a mindful way.
SomaVeda® Thai Yoga creates a singular healing experience, bringing fundamental elements and energy into harmony. It creates wholeness of mind, body, and spirit in both the client and the therapist, and is wonderful for rehabilitation, pain relief, and stress reduction. Experience the nurturing, calming, and enlivening effects of this wonderful therapy.
Do I have to be flexible to do this?
A great thing about receiving Thai Yoga Therapy is that you do not have to be flexible, strong or even mobile. This therapy works on every body type at any stage in life and at any stage of illness, disease or health. Don't let the photos fool you, movements are applied only to the extent of the clients' capabilities. We will only move you through positions appropriate for you!
Do I have to commit to a program, or can I come just once?
Of course you may schedule a single visit. If after that visit you choose to participate in a program designed specifically for your current health concerns, simply ask and it can be arranged. A specific Therapeutic Day protocol will then be designed for you.
