The deadline for filing your federal income taxes is fast approaching but you can rest easy if you haven’t done so yet. While April 15 is the official Tax Day but this year, you actually have until April 17 to file. And since tax-time stress is real, we’ll tell you 5 reasons why an in-home massage is a perfect way to deal with it.
1. Lower your stress levels
Let’s face it, not only is tax season stressful but by default, life takes a toll on you mentally and physically. The culprit of the majority of diseases is often brought on by anxiety and stress. Massage has been proven to lower cortisol levels while increasing levels of serotonin and dopamine, which are important chemicals the body often doesn’t produce enough of.
2. Sleep better at night
In today’s day and age, it’s often hard to get a good night’s rest when you check your email first thing in the morning and last thing at night. A recent study links extended work availability with decreased calmness, mood, and energy levels.
With 1 out of 3 adults not getting enough sleep, treating yourself to something like a sleep massage can significantly help you recharge. The massage was specially-designed to help treat insomnia by using a combination of gentle pressure, rocking, and other massage techniques. The best part? Being able to roll straight into bed right after your massage and knowing tax season is over.
3. Combat desk syndrome
You work hard, and sometimes that’ll mean spending long hours sitting at your desk. This can cause tension in your shoulders and back, as well as a decrease in blood circulation. It can also lead to sedentary death syndrome, which is the third-leading cause of death worldwide. Combat these symptoms by choosing which massage technique fits your needs best. Whether it’s sedentary or active, your job may be affecting your body posture.
4. Give your health a boost
Massages don’t only ease muscle tension and strain but are also the perfect method to detoxify your body and help prevent fluid retention and naturally relieve allergies.
You can even customize your Zeel massage with some extra techniques like lymphatic drainage and foot reflexology at no extra cost (just put your request in the notes when booking). They’ll jumpstart your immune and autonomic nervous system – an extra advantage this allergy season.
5. Be part of the trend
With self-care being on trend in 2018, what doesn’t sound more relaxing than massages? Self-care doesn’t have to be an indulgence with a massage membership – members are offered 20 percent off monthly in-home massages. No one likes commuting anymore than they have to, so let the spa come to you and still reap the massage benefits – without the five-star price. All the benefits of the spa-experience without any of the hassle.
Although you may not be able to deduct massages on your taxes, with Tax Day approaching you can use the code “TAXDAY2018” to receive $20 off your first in-home massage. You deserve it!
