4 reasons why this is so effective. It increases your sleep quality and focus. You’ll sleep like the nice little kitten. The result is increased productivity.

By the way, do you know why they actually encourage 8 hours of sleep? Has anybody ever wondered why the experts say you need 8 hours of sleep? I couldn’t believe this, the first 4 hours the brain repairs the body. The second four hours, the brain repairs itself. That’s the reason why if you don’t get enough sleep, you feel groggy. You’re not all there. That’s half the people in Dallas actually. Do you see the way they drive?

This is Betty, she’s awesome, she’s not here this morning, but man, she’s incredible. She’s been in massage longer than I’ve been alive. That’s 25 years y’all.

It’s less knots, less tension, and less headaches. It’s unbelievable.

But, here’s what’s really amazing. Remember, the study from 3M and UT department of kinesiology also uncovered, this is what they weren’t expecting. It actually reduces cold and flu symptoms. Why? Think about it. If you have a knot in your shoulders or in your neck, those are toxins in your muscles that are building up, and when you massage that, when you push and put pressure on that, it’s squeezing the toxins out.

It’s similar to, raise your hand if you’ve ever done the dishes. Ok, so you have a sponge, and you’re scrubbing, and then you take the sponge and you squeeze it and all the water and soap drips down your forearm and all over your clothes and everything else, and then somebody asks: “Hey, did you have an accident?” All that water and soap that you’re squeezing out is similar to your muscles squeezing out those toxins every rub. That’s the reason why massage is so effective. And so it actually reduces cold and flu symptoms. Why do I have a picture of the United airplane? Because less sick days equals more vacation days. You know, Whoohoo!
