Aesthetic And Anti-Aging Medicine
Based on Maslow’s beliefs, it is stated in the hierarchy that humans need beautiful imagery or something new and pleasing on an aesthetic level to continue up toward self-actualization. Humans need to refresh themselves in the presence and peace of nature, while carefully absorbing and observing their surroundings, to extract the beauty that the world has to offer. This higher-level need relates in a beautiful way with the environment, and leads to the feeling of intimacy with nature and everything beautiful. Click on the link to find out more.
