Research Backed, Complementary Therapy

Shown to be as much as 5X MORE EFFECTIVE than traditional treatments alone*

Sukshma Therapy assists you in integrating a daily yogic practice into your self care routine. Throughout your journey with us, you will be introduced to two complementary techniques: Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY), a powerful yogic breathing practice, and Sahaj Samadhi, which is Sanskrit for “effortless meditation.” Both of these techniques connect you to an ancient and timeless way of relaxing the mind and becoming free of stress and tension.

These techniques are paired with insight-oriented therapy, which also has been shown to be generally as effective or more effective than medications in treating depression, especially when consumer satisfaction and long-term follow-up are considered.

Research on Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY)

Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY) is a set of evidence-based practices that can lower stress from the very first session, and have been shown to be as effective as antidepressant drug therapy, yet free of unwanted side effects.

Depression
Anxiety
PTSD
Stress
Deep Sleep
Antioxidant
Life Satisfaction

From reducing stress to getting better rest, these techniques have demonstrated a measurable impact on quality of life.

Over 100 independent studies conducted on four continents and published in peer review journals, have demonstrated a comprehensive range of benefits from practicing the Sudarshan Kriya breathing exercises as taught in the Sukshma Therapy Phase 1 Experience.

5x MORE EFFECTIVE

THAN TRADITIONAL TREATMENTS ALONE

*Adding Sahaj Samadhi Meditation to traditional treatments (drugs and/or psychotherapy) was five times more effective than traditional treatments alone (9% vs 50% remission rate from depression).

Also, these benefits persisted for 6 months, even though there only follow-up Sahaj practice sessions for 3 months.

Research on Psychotherapy

3,000 scientific studies and 300 summaries of studies underscore the consistent and positive effects of psychotherapy. Psychological therapies are effective across all ages, ranging from children to adults to older adults, and across settings ranging from independent practices to community centers to day hospitals. Psychotherapy clearly works with different people in many different settings.

The average client receiving psychotherapy is better off than 79% of clients who do not seek treatment. By comparing the effects of psychotherapy with the effects of medication, Dr. Robert Rosenthal, Harvard University psychologist, convincingly demonstrated that the typical effects of psychotherapy often exceed the degree of effect found in biomedical breakthroughs. Simply put, psychotherapy is quite effective.

Popular belief holds that antidepressant medications are plainly the most powerful treatment for depression. But, in fact, there is no stronger medicine for depression than psychotherapy. Scientific evidence shows that psychotherapy is generally as effective or more effective than medications in treating depression, especially when consumer satisfaction and long-term follow-up are considered. Research shows that psychotherapy for depression is at least as effective as antidepressant medications during the treatment period and more effective in preventing a return of the symptoms after the treatment is stopped. This is not to devalue the positive impact of antidepressants; rather, it is to underscore the reliable strength of psychotherapy.

Studies also consistently find that most people prefer psychotherapy over taking medications. What’s more, using a preferred treatment (regardless of the particular treatment) also seems to produce better results.

In summary, the scientific research supports the value of psychotherapy, even brief therapy, as an effective treatment for common mental health problems. Effective psychotherapy translates into happier and healthier people.

Research on Online Therapy

Wondering if online therapy is effective? A study has shown that online therapy can feel more personal than traditional therapy. Ninety-six percent of people using online therapy reported feeling a personal connection with their online therapists as opposed to 91 percent who saw face-to-face therapists. They were also more invested in completing homework the therapists assigned them and occasionally reviewed correspondence between them and their therapists, leading them to move forward with their lives.
