How Sports Thai Yoga Therapy Works for Athletes
America’s top athletes are using Thai Yoga Therapy on its own and in conjunction with other modalities and Western medicine as a part of their regular practice and treatment regimes. SomaVeda® Thai Yoga helps the body to heal and balance itself by allowing energy to properly flow from the points along the meridians, the energy pathways defined by Traditional Indian and Thai Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Energy needs to flow freely without blockages in order for the body to function at an optimal level.
In the West, Ayurveda, Yoga, Yoga Therapy and indigenous oriental healing practices have become a fairly well recognized if alternative method of treating maladies nausea, pregnancy sickness, and pain, which are the maladies that are most often covered by insurance. While Asian and Oriental Medicine has always closely been linked with sports, martial arts (May Thai- Thai Boxing as a good example), and healing all things in nature from nature, Western medicine has only recently become more accepting of the practical application of Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy in sports settings.
SomaVeda® for sports is becoming a recognized treatment for frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, back pain, pulled tendons, torn ligaments, tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis, sciatica, tight hamstrings, muscle/tendon strain, golfer’s shoulder, tennis elbow, weak back, stiff neck, and other ailments athletes may incur.
Sports SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Practitioners and Therapist aim to bring the body back to balance by understanding the compensation patterns presenting with each sports-specific movement and injury. This allows them to help with injury prevention, optimal performance, and faster recovery.
When athletes are prescribed rest for an injury, they use SomaVeda® Thai Yoga for Sports, sometimes along with Western medicine, to speed up the healing process. The benefit of acupuncture is that it works without side effects from pharmaceuticals.
SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy for Muscle Relief
When athletes perform, they put stress on their muscles and often incur injuries. Injuries affect the body’s ability to sense where it exists in space, creating an imbalance in the body’s proprioceptive system. The proprioceptive system allows the muscles to communicate with the nervous system. SomaVeda® Thai Yoga can balance and reset the muscles by restoring their proper energy flow and tone so they can better communicate with the nervous system, creating a more accurate sense of where one is in space.
Specific Benefits of Thai Yoga Therapy for Athletes
Improved Blood Flow and Circulation: When the pressure is applied to specific points while positioned in Yoga Therapeutic Postures or “Asana”, they create an increase of nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to relax and to widen, opening up the arteries. The process allows for more blood flow to the heart and to the other organs improving blood circulation and cardiovascular health.
Muscle Relaxation and Reduction of Antagonistic Muscle Tension: As the blood, lymph and interstitial fluids flow is increased through the body, tight muscles relax and inflammation reduces. Metabolic waste such as Lactic and Uric Acid is reduced and oxygen saturation of tissues increases. Therefore, by relieving fatigue and strain, muscle soreness is alleviated.
Injury Prevention and Treatment: SomaVeda® Thai Yoga promotes neurological and cardiovascular balance, which supports homeostasis in the body—therefore preventing injury. Should injury arise, the treatments regulate nerve conduction and microcirculation in the area of inflammation to speed up the healing process.
Energy and Endurance Enhancement: SOmaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy can be used to regulate the nervous system, which helps to improve energy and endurance allowing for enhanced athletic performance. Also, by addressing the superficial points and energy lines- sites related to the liver and lung function along with the digestive systems, a boost in energy and endurance can occur by removing blockages and increasing the flow of Prana or Qi.
Rapid Recovery: Having regular treatments in between training sessions and after a race minimizes muscle fatigue and pain, enhances energy, and facilitates rapid recovery. It also promotes a deeper, more restful sleep allowing the muscle tissue to rebuild and for energy to be restored. Rapid recovery means more frequent and more quality practice time.
