SBV has been providing complementary medicine services since 2007 in the form of music therapy interventions and yoga to target specific diseases, and in combination with modern medicine.
Both these services were subsequently established as centres – the Centre for Music Therapy Education & Research and the Centre for Yoga Therapy Education and Research.
