aaaahhhh … how wonderfully relaxing a good massage feels to our tired aching bodies. But did you know this revitalizing therapy does so much more for our health than just simply relax us? Massage therapy has been shown to slow down the release of stress hormones which are associated with anxiety, such as cortisol. Recent research out of the University of Miami School of Medicine found that as little as 20 minutes of massage per week for as little as one month can significantly reduce stress and anxiety by as much as 31%. Think you can’t afford to get a massage? Think again by checking out SpaFinder Wellness Last Minute (spafinder.com/lastminute) for 30%-80% off original prices on same-day and next-day spa services! Also, day spas found in malls and shopping centers provide massage therapy for approximately $1 per minute and most welcome walk-ins. What a healthy way to pamper yourself or someone you care about.
