The Rub Down

The Rub Down

A CubeSapien Experiment to examine the effects of a 15min Daily Massage for 30 days.

Often the work place is an environment rife with stress and chronically tensed muscles. Massage is well known to be relaxing and an enjoyable experience. Athletes will often receive myofascial release, a massage used to release the toxins and unwanted chemicals that build up after intense physical efforts.

The hypothesis of this experiment is that a daily professional massage will allow a more relaxed and by extension more productive work environment. Also, through a relaxed attitude the body should see a decrease in cortisol. And a decrease in cortisol is supposed to have a positive influence on athletic performance.

Stay tuned as The Rub Down begins on April 16th.
