Get A Massage!

There is scientific proof now that a good massage does more than just relax your muscles. Volunteers who received Swedish massage experienced significant decreases in levels of the stress hormone cortisol in blood and saliva, and in arginine vasopressin, a hormone that can lead to increases in cortisol. They also had increases in the number of lymphocytes, white blood cells that are part of the immune system. 


  1. Get a massage, because it´s comfortable. Get a massage by somebody you like, then it´s helpful (due to the hormons and this stuff). Get a massage by you lover, this is superb. You got the message?

  2. I firmly believe in the results of such research. Massage helps the nerves relax, which in turn allows for healthy blood circulation. Good blood circulation means oxygenated blood flows regularly, keeping the body in perfect working condition.
