National Relaxation Day

Elements Massage®, is encouraging all Americans to sit back, relax, and take a much-needed break on August 15 in celebration of National Relaxation Day. From pressures at work to family demand or health issues, stress comes at all of us from many directions. Beyond the mental drain, stress can also produce physical symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and muscle tension, which makes taking the time to relax even more important.

“According to a study by the American Institute of Stress, 77 percent of adults regularly suffer from the physical symptoms of stress, while 48 percent of people report that stress keeps them up at night,” said Eric Stephenson, Elements Massage’s Chief Wellness Officer. “In our increasingly fast-paced society where we are all connected to digital devices, it is vital that you disconnect regularly to re-center yourself.”

While most of us wish that we could escape to a tropical island and relax on a quiet and secluded beach, getting away from the daily grind is easier said than done.
