Relief Treatment

A Brief Look at the Philosophy Behind Yoga Yoga is a holistic therapy that attempts to redirect stress and negative energy and helps to diffuse it so it will not lead to a buildup of stress, which can then cause sickness in the body. That is the goal of most holistic approaches- to stop health problems before they start. In this way they are an effective form of preventative medicine that have been shown to have amazing results. The yogis (or yoga practitioners) believe that as human beings what we seek most is happiness and joy and that most people settle for less than they deserve in terms of happiness. The yogis believe that most people settle for very brief and temporary life pleasures but feel that at some point in most people's lives they long for more and thus begin a quest of sorts for happiness and bliss that is not fleeting. relief treatment
