For Weight Loss

Osteopathy for Weight Loss

We all know that no single diet is right for everyone. Each of us is biochemically unique, based on genetics and life habits. The very same foods that will keep you slim, healthy and energized can cause someone else to be overweight, unhealthy, and fatigued. Why does this happen? Because everyone’s metabolism is unique. The key is to keeping your personal metabolic rate functioning at its optimum.  Keeping your joints mobile and allowing a free flow of the fluids in your body is a great way to achieve this. In stagnant fluid we find disease and illness.  At Mind, Matter & Motion our Osteopaths DO(MP) work to create fluidity and allow your body to function at its full capacity.  Our Osteopaths DO(MP) are well versed in Nutrition and are happy to share their knowledge. Private meetings with a Registered Nutritionists are also available.

Yoga for Weight Loss

Our Weight Loss Classes focus on different aspects of Weight Loss every week. Sometimes we focus on reducing cortisol levels (stress hormone), sometimes digestion and elimination, strengthening the 'trouble' spots, or listening to what your body is telling you. Yoga is a phenomenal way to put you in touch with your body the way nothing else can, and it can help you lose weight.These classes are often designed to get your heart rate up, then back down. They are gentle yet strengthening, and perfect for any level of Yogi to attend. Not interested in Weight Loss? That's ok! Many do attend this class who do not specifically have Weight Loss in mind. They just enjoy the sequence provided on these evenings.  In 2005, medical researcher and practicing yogi Alan Kristal, DPH, MPH, set out to do a medical study on the weight-loss effects of yoga. With funding from the National Cancer Institute, Kristal and colleagues at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle led a trial involving 15,500 healthy, middle-aged men and women. All completed a survey recalling their physical activity (including yoga) and their weight between the ages of 45 and 55. Researchers then analyzed the data, teasing out other factors that could influence weight change – such as diet or other forms of exercise. The end result: They found yoga did indeed help people shed pounds. Not only is Yoga a gentle, empowering and strength building form of exercise, it also creates Mindfulness, the ability to observe what is happening internally in a non-reactive fashion. That is what helps change the relationship of mind to body, and eventually to food and eating. Mind, Matter & Motion has specifically designed Yoga classes involving poses designed to stimulate and normalize your metabolism.

Mind, Matter & Motion is offering a 12 week program to help you achieve balance, symmetry and a regulated metabolism. This program will consist of three Osteopathic treatments with one of our Registered DO(MP)'s, as well as twelve specifically designed Yoga classes with weight loss in mind.
