Medical Yoga  Self-care 

Being a healthcare professional/therapist is associated with special requirements and challenges. This involves working days where you are a helper in a meeting with people who are in pain. The role of therapist means that you get close to suffering. It turns out that to be in contact with

people with mental and/or physical difficulties can be a burden for the therapist. Complex cases, lack of recovery and sad fates can be thought to constitute a burden


Terms such as vicarious traumatisation, secondary traumatisation and care fatigue have been introduced since the 1990s to describe the burdens people in helping professions may experience as a result of their profession.

Even after these concepts were launched, within today's health and care professions there is still a one-sided focus on the work you have to do, and a particularly insufficient (or no) focus on what the job can do to you and how to prevent and deal with it the burdens associated with the work one performs.



There is a humility and a respect for the complexity involved in working with things that have to do with the human. In this module we take a closer look

how healthcare personnel/therapists best

possible can provide health care without it being at their own expense. 

The purpose of the module is to prevent and relieve stress.
