Mother Nature is blessed with an abundance of living creatures that can be found in every corner of the earth. It is in the depths of the ocean and even in the air. The human species, taken as the most intelligent of all life on earth; has time and time again worked to improve the quality of life. These efforts based on trial and error; and on research supported by advanced technology have propelled the human civilization forward. The medical field has jumped by leaps and bounds in the ground breaking medical treatments. However, while our faith in the medical profession is strong, we still have a tendency to fall back on the old fashioned Grandma’s “chicken soup” remedy.
Yoga therapy is in essence a system of self healing. The practice of Yoga has clearly shown to work silently on the human body, thus restoring it to its original state. While Yoga therapy is not an independent substitute for medical treatment, its practice will remove ailments and aches or at times it prevents them from deteriorating.
