San Antonio, TX - November 12, 2014 - (PR.com) - Work-life balance is something everybody struggles with, yet it's important for everyone to achieve. This is made even more difficult during the holidays as pressure mounts to find the perfect gifts and prepare for family gatherings all while coping with end of the year deadlines.

When stressed, our nervous and endocrine systems release adrenaline and cortisol, also known as the stress hormone, causing the heart to beat faster, blood pressure to rise and changes in the digestive process. Additionally, this added stress can, can cause migraines and tension headaches due to muscle tension. Studies have shown that regular massage therapy can reduce the levels of cortisol as well as increase the blood cell count, which helps the body's immune system in fighting off infection.* "Massage Therapy is extremely effective at combating stress. Massage signals the brain to produce endorphins to calm the peripheral nervous system. Endorphins tend to lead to feelings of euphoria, which is why you feel so good after a massage. When we have high levels of endorphins we can feel less pain and a definite decrease in stress," said Daniel Jaramillo, LMT and Director of Industry Relations for Massage Heights.
"Our skin is our largest living organ and as such, it is purposed to protect us; we owe it to ourselves to keep this vital organ as healthy as possible. Receiving professional treatments from a licensed Skin Therapist and following a customized home care prescription is the first step in taking care of your skin's health. Professional Facial treatments help to improve and restore circulation to facial skin layers and increase the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to skin cells. This gives you a healthy glow and plumps skin cells with vital nutrients and water, which reduce the appearance of wrinkled and dry skin. Nutrients like vitamins and minerals found in the blood, along with adequate hydration, help develop and maintain new skin cells essential for a youthful, healthy appearance. Facial massage treatments increase circulation and blood flow, relieve stress and also encourage peace of mind and contentment," Katherine Palmer, LST/Licensed Instructor, Skin Therapy Operations Specialist for Massage Heights.
