Humans are made to be touched. Are you getting enough?

Touch improves health and healing. Our bodies are designed with a network of dedicated nerve fibers in our skin that detect and emotionally respond to the touch of another person — affirming our relationships, our social connections and even our sense of self.

And, massage (and rolling and stretching) can make a huge difference in our ability to maintain strong muscles and stay active -- for your young athletes and everyone else. Massages feel good, and actually speed muscle recovery.

Perhaps a gift for someone you love? Even carving out 20 minutes at home will create a sweet moment to connect and relax.
