Today is National Relaxation Day

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash.-- It might just be any other Saturday, but today is actually National Relaxation Day.

The holiday is meant to bring awareness about relaxing and reducing job stress. Local massage therapists told us stress accumulates in the feet and stomach and simple massages can help reduce overall stress, but the key is listening to your body.

The American Physchological Association says nearly half of all Americans suffer effects from stress and nearly all doctor visits are related to some sort of stress.
