Experience the Scent-sational Effects of Flowers
From fragrant roses to aromatic lilacs, flowers not only smell great and add a punch of color to any room, but they may be good for one’s health. How? They can encourage feelings of happiness, perhaps as a result of both their natural beauty and fragrance. Flowers also may foster creativity, boost energy, diminish feelings of depression, and allay anxiety.
You don’t have to spend a fortune either to get the benefits. If you don’t grow your own, your local supermarket is likely to carry affordable arrangements and individual flowers. You also could go to a pick-your-own flower farm. Being outside in the fresh air and plucking your favorite flowers is enjoyable and highly relaxing.

Discover the Marvelous Benefits of Massage
While massage is often associated with a tranquil trip to the spa, it also yields an incredible array of health benefits — not to mention pain relief. These may include:
- Increased circulation
- Decreased stress
- Enhanced sleep
- Lowered blood pressure
- Greater range of motion
- Increased energy
Some studies also suggest that massage may boost individuals’ white blood cell count, which can help the body fend off disease. There are many different types of massage including deep tissue, Swedish, sports, and trigger point. Depending on the type you request, varying degrees of pressure are used.
Massage also serves as an ideal complement to chiropractic care. If a massage is given before an adjustment, it can help to relax tight muscles. Given after an adjustment, massage could help the alignment to hold longer. Consider having a massage both before and after your next adjustment so you can experience the pre and post benefits.
