These days, we tend to move at a faster pace than ever before (even in the South,) which means that we need to learn how to unwind and relax more than ever. Part of the chiropractic experience helps you unwind, but we have a few suggestions to help you relax when you are at home as well.

Here are a few tips for helping you relax, naturally, in your own home.
Relaxation tips:

Stretch: Stretching not only helps you elongate your body, increase blood flow, and it improves the overall function of your body. Stretching is also extremely relaxing. Find a clear, open area in your home, and enjoy 15 to 30 minutes of stretching. It’s a great way to begin and end your hectic day.
Massage: Enjoy a massage. Whether you come in once a week for professional massage therapy, or enjoy a shoulder massage while watching your favorite TV show at home with someone special, massages are great for unwinding after a long day.
Aromatherapy: One of the many uses for aromatherapy is for relaxation. Whether you are trying to prevent anxiety or just relax, aromatherapy may be for you. A few relaxing scents include Bergamot, Chamomile, Lavender, Lemon, Orange, Patchouli, and Vanilla.
