Nothing is more taxing than tax day. The day we all dread each year. The tax deadline this year was extended because of Emancipation Day but the deadline is today, April 18, 2016 at midnight. No one has ever enjoyed paying taxes and our history has shown that. In this modern age, things are no different. Tax anxiety is a real condition that many suffer from. 40 million Americans or 18 percent of the population suffer from anxiety every day, but that number increases dramatically when it’s time to file taxes. Experts believe that anxiety comes from our relationship with money, but whatever the reason people get very stressed in regards to tax day. Paying your taxes is inevitable, but once its done there are ways you can relieve the anxiety and stress.
Planet Fitness has stepped up to help relieve some of our tax stress. From April 18th through April 22, Planet Fitness has announced Free Hydro Massage Days. On these days you can print out the coupon on their website and enjoy a relaxing hydro massage in one of their many hydro massage beds or chairs for free. We all love free especially after tax day.
The HydroMassage hydrotherapy bed is one of the forms of hydrotherapy that uses the combination of water, heat and massage to provide a comforting and relaxing experience for the user. The HydroMassage bed allows the user to lay comfortably on a rubber barrier while water jets move up and down the body.
Hydrotherapy is a form of therapy that applies the use of water as a curative and preventive form of therapy. According to Holistic Online.com, “Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of disease. Hydrothermal therapy additionally uses its temperature effects, as in hot baths, saunas, wraps, etc.” (http://www.holistic-online.com/hydrotherapy.htm). Hydrothermal is another name for hydrotherapy with the additional element of heat.
Massage is an ancient form of healing for both the mind and the body. Its benefits are both tangible and intrinsic. It helps relieve muscle soreness and stiffness, relieves tension, and improves circulation. Hydrotherapy can deliver deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and sense of well being; as well as decreased stress and tension with each use. In addition, Hydrotherapy has been known to aid in the remedy of anxiety, migraines, digestion, circulation, high blood pressure, flexibility, and more.
Hydrotherapy massages typically last from 12-15 minutes, so even if your busy back at work to pay next years taxes, your massage won’t take much time. Planet Fitness sources have asked that you allow extra time during peak gym times. They also reserve the right to limit massages to only 10 minutes to allow all their customers a chance to relax. While you’re there ask about gym membership. Exercise is also a great way to reduce stress and relieve tension.
Tax day will come and go but stress and anxiety will not. A regular exercise routine can help you reduce life’s everyday stress helping you lead a happier and healthier lifestyle.
