Healing in Ancient Greece
This 1:34 video explains the Greek sanctuaries that
honor Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and how

This would make a good video for explaining how that being able to express yourself is believed to be helpful as well as a good video to show how health was a such concern to the Greeks. Would be a nice contrast/compare to television commercials for health products.
