Is Happiness Just A Massage Away?

A monthly massage is one of the best ways to decrease the stress hormone cortisol and increase your feel–good neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin.

Visiting a Day Spa with experienced therapists will allow complete focus on your comfort and relaxation. Treatment beds should include warmers, extra soft padding, memory foam face cradles, making your atmosphere an oasis of tranquility. Bonus points for spa’s like this one that offer heated herbal pads to ease tense muscles, and a premium massage cream with shea butter and vitamin E used to hydrate the skin.

This will lead to increased immune system activity, improved mood and overall happiness, a win-win!

The AMTA found that 62% of doctors or health care providers strongly recommended a monthly rub down. These recommendations came from 53% of physicians, 42% of Chiropractors, and 41% of physical therapist. Whether you’re looking for mental or therapeutic relief, many day spas offer a variety of services to meet your needs.
