Yoga is a form of exercise which involved stretching the body in various poses. These poses are designed by alternative medicine experts as a way of helping the body become more flexible over time.
Finding out how this can help the body is what researchers have been focusing on for a number of years. While the benefits to the muscles are obvious, benefits to other body systems can still occur. Those with chronic headaches often find that such stretching techniques have limited or even eliminated their pain symptoms. People with lower back pain often claim that certain stretches and poses are the best ways to relive their aching back muscles.
The bottom line is that you should never dismiss a therapy just because it is considered "alternative medicine." Doing your research on any type of new therapy is always important, but you might want to give some yoga classes a chance before simply assuming that it will not work for you. If you are suffering from chronic pain, an alternative therapy just might be your cure. You can take advantage of our FREE 3 Day Pass and experience the difference before any commitments are made. Healing Energy Techniques in Yoga There are some theories surrounding yoga and its connection to "healing energy." While there is no definitive research on the topic, the theory is that some yoga poses help the body's various "energy fields" remain in a straight line, which is supposedly beneficial to a person's overall well-being. If such exercises are practiced daily, a person's health can sometimes begin to benefit as a result of these energy fields being kept aligned for a specific period of time. This is often why you may see people practicing particular poses and holding them in place for a minute or so. The theory is that this helps the energy fields stay in alignment, as well as keeps the muscles stretching for a beneficial time frame. In order for muscles to acclimate to being stretched, they need to stay stretched for a decent amount of time.
Otherwise, the muscle fibers won't gain flexibility quickly. Any type of stretching exercise can be beneficial to the body.
