Hallmark cards aside, when February 14th approaches, we tend to lead with our hearts. For some, that means making special plans with loved ones; for others, it’s about taking time to do what you love.
At Backfire Chiropractic, we think that Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate health and well-being–what’s not to love about that?
Here are 6 ideas for celebrating a healthy Valentine’s Day in Seattle:
1. Give (or receive) the gift of a relaxing massage.
Say goodbye to stress and sore muscles, and hello (finally!) to relaxation. With three amazing in-house massage therapists, Backfire Chiropractic knows how great the gift of massage can be.
2. Take a friend or loved one to yoga class (or try partner yoga).
If you love your yoga class, why not invite a loved one or friend to join you this week? Or try out a partner yoga workshop, such as the one being offered at 8 Limbs Phinney Ridge this Sunday, February 12, 2 – 4:00pm.
3. Sign up for a cooking class.
Put a little love into your food, and share it with others. A cooking class is a fun way to bond with your favorite people. Hipcooks in Seattle offers “A Romantic Dinner for 2” class on Sunday, February 12, 1-4pm. Or sign up for one of their other cuisine-themed classes, from the likes of “Ragin’ Cajun” to “Dim Sum and Then Some.”
4. Join the Valentine Day’s Dash (5K run or walk).
Bring love to the streets of Seattle. The fourth-annual Valentine’s Day Dash through Green Lake Park will get your heart racing and your legs pumping. The race starts at the Green Lake Crew House on Saturday, February 11, 9:30am.
5. For the more adventurous runners: Cupid’s Undie Run.
It may be too late to sign up for 1.5-mile Cupid’s Undie Run through the heart of Seattle’s Fremont district (since the race has already sold out), but it’s sure to be a thrilling spectacle. And, more importantly, it benefits the Children’s Tumor Foundation. The run begins at 2pm, with pre- and post-run festivities held at the Ballroom.
6. And for overall balance and good health…
…a spinal adjustment by your neighborhood chiropractor is always a great way to love your body.
Have a fun, healthy Valentine’s Day!
