Get a deep tissue massage at the spaWhy: It's pretty much impossible to do a deep tissue massage on yourself says King. You just won't reap all the benefits of a pro massage, which include, "an increase in blood and lymph circulation, oxygenation of tissues, removal of toxins and lactic acid from tight muscles, improved sleep patterns and digestion, etc. Not to mention the release of endorphins and lowering of stress hormones, so you feel amazing," she says.
