Researchers in Cedars-Sinai’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences have reported people who undergo massage experience measureable changes in their body’s immune and endocrine response.
Although there have been previous, smaller studies about the health benefits of massage, the Cedars-Sinai study is widely believed to be the first systematic study of a larger group of healthy adults.
The study is published online at http://www.liebertonline.com/loi/acm. It also will be published in the October printed edition of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. “Massage is popular in America, with almost 9 percent of adults receiving at least one massage within the past year,” said Mark Rapaport, MD, chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences. “People often seek out massage as part of a healthy lifestyle but there hasn’t been much physiological proof of the body’s heightened immune response following massage until now.” In the study, 29 subjects received 45 minutes of Swedish massage and 24 received 45 minutes of light touch massage. Each participant underwent informed consent, a physical and mental evaluation and was deemed to be physically healthy and free of any mental disorder. Massage therapists were trained in how to deliver both Swedish and light touch using specific and identical protocols. “This research indicates that massage doesn’t only feel good, it also may be good for you,” said Rapaport, the principal investigator of the study and the Polier Family Chair in Schizophrenia and Related Disorders. “More research is ahead of us but it appears that a single massage may deliver a measurable benefit. 💝Whatsapp or email for info or bookings💝

Good morning!!! Time to rise and shine!!.
Alright, we’ve accomplished a lot so far but waking up feeling rested and with the right mindset is not enough to make the most of the morning. You need a plan! Without a plan, you may find yourself awake but wasting time doing things like scrolling social media or wandering aimlessly.
Knowing exactly what you’re aiming to achieve is going to help you get things checked off the list and give you a way to track your progress. It’s important to not only include the obvious to dos on the list (laundry, dishes, appointments, phone calls).
For more on this, and making the most of your mornings, check out my Facebook Community, That Vibrant Mom Life (link in profile).

Flight was delayed on my way back to NYC 😢. So since I've been sitting at a conference allll weekend, I decided to squeeze in a little workout.
2 rules for working out "in public": 1. Think out of the box. Use the natural terrain of what you have around you and reinterpret and innovate and adapt. At the very least, use only your bodyweight, stretch, or just walk!
2. Do not worry about what other people will think! My whole gate was watching me do this. They were either cheering me on or letting me know that I inspired them.
DO IT LIKE THIS: 20 seconds of each exercise, 20 second rest in between. Repeat the list 3 times. I boarded the flight feeling refreshed, focused, and better able to sit for 5+ hours. ⚡️⚡️
