  2. Relieves headaches
  3. Increases circulation (especially good for people with diabetes)
  4. Reduces inflammation
  5. Decreases stress (can also help with weight loss due to reducing stress hormones!)
  6. Reduces high blood pressure
  7. Reduces muscle tension
  8. Improves sleep
  9. Helps fibromyalgia pain
