Creativity- The Magic Elixir

We all have creativity within us.  We believe that creativity helps us become unstuck and starts us moving forward again.  It sparks curiosity, soothes the mind, broadens horizons and reconnects us with the world.  From lowering blood pressure to releasing ‘feel good’ chemicals in the brain, there is strong evidence today that being creative is great for your health!
