There’s something about a good massage. It can bring WITs back to life and, I truly believe, has the power to restore balance and bring relief to your body & soul.

I suffer from chronic headaches and was rather crippled yesterday so I decided to go to my favorite San Francisco spa, International Orange. My massage was the perfect balance between really working my back muscles that I needed for relief and a calming and relaxing experience to help my stress and pain levels. The hot stones, scents, heated pillows and warm cloths all made for such a great time that I walked out feeling much better and was so grateful. This is why I believe in the power of massage and some good pampering.

Research has shown that massages can be beneficial for so many reasons and can create relief for a variety of ailments. The spa we all know and love, Bliss, even offers a special treatment for cancer patients now.

I actually know a lot of people that have never been to get a professional massage and I cannot recommend them enough. If you are wondering what to expect, check out this article here on Glamour. SpaFinder is also a great resource also if you want to find a spa near you.
