Your pampering key to total vitality!
Aah… Massage (even the DIY kind!) is so wonderfully soothing because it increases your brain’s production of feel- good serotonin by 28% in just 10 minutes, according to University of Miami researchers. To really boost the bliss, pamper yourself with two 10-minute self-massages a day, rubbing any tender spots with sesame oil. In one study, the oil’s active ingredients (sesamin and sesamol) slowed the production of pain-triggering cytokines, cutting soreness by 60% in 10 days.
