Nurse Your Way Back to Health with a Plant

Taking care of plants can be very therapeutic. I can personally verify this. After my miscarriage, I was drawn to plants. Taking care of plants helped to redirect my focus during a difficult time. Appreciating the simple beauty of these unique floral arrangements then allowed me to experience gratitude in other areas of my life. Because they helped me to relax and bring me peace of mind, I started to feel better. That is why I have assembled these unique and beautiful plant terrariums. My hope is that they will help bring relaxation and peace of mind to anyone who needs this. Or maybe you know someone who could benefit from a gift like this?

I’m not the only one who feels that plants can benefit your health. Take a look at what is being said about the health benefits of plants:

“Researchers…found that plants in the office significantly increased workplace satisfaction, self-reported levels of concentration, and perceived air quality.”…“A study by Ulrich and Simons found that being exposed to natural settings and plants can reduce stress levels within a five-minute period.” http://www.urbanplanters.co.uk/benefits-of-plants-article/increase-workplace-productivity/

Plants in offices increase happiness and productivity – What was important was that everybody could see a plant from their desk. If you are working in an environment where there’s something to get you psychologically engaged you are happier and you work better,” Knight said. https://www.theguardian.com/money/2014/aug/31/plants-offices-workers-productive-minimalist-employees

The Healing Hand designs both Air Plant Terrariums and Tropical Plant Terrariums. Scroll down to learn more.

Tropical Plants Terrarium

Terrariums were popular during the Victorian Age and are making a comeback.  Gazing IMG_0567into a terrarium can have a very calming effect and be a good source of relaxation.

It could be a unique gift for that hard to buy for person, (or, better yet, treat yourself!)

This is a special and unique floral arrangement that is pretty easy to take care of.  Because a terrarium is somewhat enclosed, it helps to keep in moisture that tropical plants need.  A few sprays of room temperature water a couple of times a week should do the trick.  See how here.

And just so you’re all set, I’m including a spray bottle with the terrarium.

To give you an idea of the size – this terrarium is about 11 inches in height and the diameter is approximately 4 ¾ inches.

The Healing Hand’s Philosophy

TODAY’S MEDITATION | THE HEALING HAND

Here you will find a Collection of Ideas, Images, Meditations, Reflections, and Thoughts – These items resonate with me. I hope they will inspire you. Passion is the path to health. If you find your passion, you find your vitality and you revitalize. Stay on the path!

THE HEALING HAND’S PHILOSOPHY

RELAX – MAKE OR BECOME LESS TENSE OR ANXIOUS

REFRESH – GIVE NEW STRENGTH OR ENERGY TO

REVITALIZE – IMBUE (SOMETHING) WITH NEW LIFE

FROM MERRIAM-WEBSTER.COM

I believe that health is maintained by an integrative approach with balance in mind – Everything in moderation.  In my opinion, stress is the root of many health issues.  In order to cultivate health, we need to “Relax, Refresh, and Revitalize”.  These are the seeds of health.

Relaxation is one of the first seeds of health.  It is important to “slow it down” sometimes.  In the stress and chaos of everyday life, people often forget to be good to themselves.  Make the time to do something for “you” everyday. Take a walk, soak in the tub, meditate.  Use your senses and hear, feel, taste, smell, and see your way back to life. Notice and appreciate the beauty around you. In other words, take the time to smell the roses. Often this is overlooked but has so much value.  Once you are less tense, you will have more energy to be able to do the things that you like.  This will help you to Refresh and be happy.  At this point, the seeds of health are growing, and everything is working better in your life.  If you find your passion, you find your vitality, and you Revitalize.

The Healing Hand does not diagnose, prescribe, or treat for a specific condition. However, the goal of The Healing Hand is to help improve and maintain your overall wellness. With this in mind, The Healing Hand offers Healing Services and Healing Products to help you “Relax, Refresh, and Revitalize”. Together, we can strive towards your health goals.  One of the aims of Reflexology and Hot Stone Massage is to help you relieve stress and help anxiety by Relaxing both your mind and body.  I am currently offering Reflexology treatments, and I will be expanding to other health modalities including Acupressure and Reiki.  The Healing Hand also offers Healing Products that have a therapeutic objective.  I design Tropical Plant and Air Plant Terrariums and Zen Gardens.  Looking at and taking care of plants, and tending a garden help you develop peace of mind, focus, and balance.  I also design Bath Salts to help you relax both your mind and body.
