Feeling better already? There's a reason for that.
BITE-Jude Henderson, Ed.D. "As you're soaking in the tub, you can use a lot of imagery to really relax yourself. Blood pressure lowers. Pulse rate lowers."
There's more to this luxury than lower stress. Baths actually lift your spirits by raising those natural "feel good" chemicals, endorphins.
BITE - Jude Henderson, Ed.D. "There's just that sense of ease. That sense of relaxation that going back literally to the womb. And I think people get a lot of comfort from that "
Yep, a bath can get down right primal.
