GO FOR A MASSAGE!

spa.jpg
A 60 minute massage is about the same as 7-8 hours of sleep to your body. A growing body of research suggests that a good massage is even better for you than you think. For the same reasons that a massage is relaxing, it boosts neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. Massage helps improve circulation and aids in the elimination of toxins. It is one of the most effective treatments in reducing stress and relief from aches and pains. Most importantly massage is a tremendously effective method of reducing the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. It lowers your heart rate and blood pressure, releases endorphins and boosts your immune system. Massage is an integral part of maintaining your energy balance and physical dynamics. Benefits are multi-dimensional affecting physical, emotional, and psychological optimization.
