Massages go hand-in-hand with resorts and fancy hotels and that's why there's a reason — they just ooze relaxation. While this may be partially because you're on holiday, there's also scientific evidence showing that massage therapy will enhance your mental wellness.

This relaxing effect may result from the pressure massage that places pain receptors under the skin, which can stimulate the vagus nerve — a central nervous system component. A healthy nervous system will slow down the heart rate, lower blood pressure and affect stress-related hormones.
