Smertehåndtering via yoga
"The best techniques for pain management are Yoga breathing, relaxation, and meditation. These three aspects of Yoga act to distract your mind from pain, reduce your body’s tension in reaction to pain, and provide an opportunity to "move through" the pain instead of resisting it so it loses its full impact...Yoga techniques can make the difference between a life ruled by pain and one in which pain plays only a "bit part" in day-to-day life"

Yoga som medicin
“I’m asking you to think of yoga as medicine – a concept which is perhaps new and quite foreign to you. Because it is a kind of medicine that can benefit the healthy as well as the sick, I’m going to suggest that you consider starting a regular practice, no matter what your current state of health… anyone can do yoga, including those who start out with little strength, energy, or flexibility, and those who are ill or injured”
Dr. Timothy McCall - Yoga As Medicine
