Get a Regular and Inexpensive Massage
Massage has been around for thousands of years. It is perhaps the oldest therapy in the world. Experts estimate that about 90 percent of illnesses are stress related, and massage can help, as it is known to significantly reduce stress and relax the mind. The latest medical research shows that massage creates chemical changes that reduce pain and stress throughout the body.
