San Antonio, TX - February 09, 2014 - (PR.com) - Many Americans juggle work, family and home, often leaving very little time to connect with their partner; all that anxiety and stress can start to build, putting a toll on a relationship and hinder their well-being. This Valentine's Day forget the traditional gifts of chocolate and flowers; a Couple's Massage at Massage Heights, a leader of professional, affordable and convenient therapeutic massage and facial services, is the perfect way to reconnect with the one you love.
Well-being is more than just physical health; it can be mind, body and spirit. Cortisol is a hormone produced by stress and has been shown to increase blood sugar and suppress the immune system; studies show that massage decreases cortisol levels and increases serotonin and dopamine levels. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that assists with the brains reward and pleasure centers, and serotonin is a contributing neurotransmitter of happiness.

"Coincidently, love has similar effects on the mind-body connection through the release of dopamine and serotonin, the connection of love and massage suggest that experiencing them together is the perfect combination for overcoming stress and connecting with your loved one on another level," said Daniel Jaramillo, LMT and Director of Industry Relations for Massage Heights.
