During tax season, along with any other time of the year that we have to deal with income, expenses, budget or taxes, people have a tendency to be more stressed. We wonder if we budgeted right and did we set enough aside to pay the taxes? The stress can interrupt our sleep since we clench our teeth more and sit in front of the computer longer. This contributes to more headaches. Regular massage, especially during these times, helps get the aches and pains out of the shoulders and neck. This calms the system and in turn helps with sleep, decreases headaches, and helps to keep us from feeling so overwhelmed.
