It can help relieve physical, emotional, and psychological ailments as well – especially combined with affirmations, visualizations, meditation, prayer, mantras, mudras and/or specific postures.
Your body is the temple that holds & protects your inner holy grail: your soul. Honoring the body is much more than honoring the self: it’s honoring your divinity and the blood of your ancestors running through your veins (their lives, their beliefs, their knowledge & wisdom, what they held dear).
