Everyone is constantly faced with stressful situations everyday, whether they are on deadline, having relationship problems or forced to fix a sudden flat tire. Stress is everywhere. There are many health risks that stress produces such as depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, headaches, heart disease and sleep problems, just to name a few. The real question though, is how to get rid of stress or what can we do to reduce our stress?
One of the best ways to reduce stress is to pamper yourself in a massage. Body massage allows the body and mind to relax thus releasing endorphins, which relieves stress and improves mood. Massage allows the body to maintain a healthy state while easing tight muscles and enabling restorative relaxation. Everyone should try to indulge in massages constantly, however there are other ways to reduce stress. These are a few ways to help you reduce stress:
- Set aside some relaxation time
- Exercise regularly
- Get plenty of sleep
- Eat a healthy diet
- Stay positive
- Develop some hobbies
- Listen to music
- Have a support buddy/group
I challenge you to make a change this month and use these techniques to help reduce the stress that we are faced with everyday.

WE Survived!!! This weekend was quite extraordinary and intense for our sales team. For the 5th year in a row, we attended the Lifestyle Expo at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. This is one of the biggest events in the city of Long Beach and we were thrilled that we were able to participate once again and showcase our ZeroG™ 4.0 chair, our iJoy® 2720 and our best selling Perfect chair.
The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach is a 3-day weekend event. We are there on Thursday prepping and setting up. However, setting up and preparing for the event is only the beginning. Starting Friday our booth was a full house and the crowds just kept coming in to test drive our massage chairs. Who doesn’t want a free massage after a day of walking around in the sun? Imagine having a massage chair in your own home, ahhh a massage every day! Saturday, was no different as all of our Human Touch® chairs were constantly being occupied and our sales reps never had a dull moment. Sunday was still busy, and as the event started coming to end, attendees continued to sit and try out our massage chairs and our zero gravity recliners to recharge and restore their energy. Human Touch® was the ultimate pit stop!
Overall, we got to meet some great people and of course we got to see some awesome cars and races. However, nothing beats sharing our wellness philosophy and being a part of an event that helps out our Long Beach Community. We cannot wait for next year’s Grand Prix and repeat this experience.
