We liked this Casey Health Insti­tute arti­cle on WTOP, which high­lights and pro­motes com­ple­men­tary ther­a­pies in pri­ma­ry med­ical care. Excerpt:

Research is increas­ing­ly show­ing yoga can help with “back pain, anx­i­ety, depres­sion and insom­nia,” and it can “help reduce risk fac­tors for car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease and hyper­ten­sion,” accord­ing to Yoga Jour­nal. It’s also been shown to help with the side effects of can­cer treat­ment.

There are a num­ber of ways health care providers are incor­po­rat­ing yoga ther­a­py into their prac­tices…

Exam­ples include rehab set­tings, can­cer clin­ics and med­ical cen­ters. Check out the arti­cle for some inter­est­ing exam­ples here.
