Hot yoga is a great alternative therapy for numerous injuries and pains. It applies a technique to correct the pain-causing condition called "tourniquet effect". Tourniquet effect is a condition where the blood flow in a specific area of the body is temporarily impeded. When eliminated it promotes healing as oxygenated blood flows through the body. It enhances the development of healthy cells, hydrating scar tissue, and calcifying the joints. Old injuries and pain gradually heals and diminishes as flexibility and strength is increased. This minimizes the need to take oral pain relievers and you may eventually, ditch them totally.
The heat applied in Hot Yoga Studios aids in expanding the blood vessels for normal circulation and delivery of oxygen and other nutrients to the body organs. This process promotes slow aging process and better overall health. Other benefits of the heat includes:
- improving muscle flexibility
- flushes toxins through sweat
- workouts the heart and burns calories
- boosts the immune system
