Edinburgh’s West End was abuzz last weekend as people noshed on whole foods at Roots, meditated on the emotional walls in their lives at Calm on Canning, sorted out their spines with White Tree Chiro, flipped through tomes on mindset at The Next Chapter, marveled at the energy of crystals at The Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, and sampled the benefits of aromatherapy, yoga, and pilates at various locations.
