Bath Benefits

It's no secret that a soothing soak calms the mind. But according to Keith Stiles, a massage therapist for performers in Cirque du Soleil, a quick dip also offers physical benefits, and bath products containing rosemary or eucalyptus may be particularly helpful. 

"Strenuous work can lead to microscopic tears in the muscles that cause stiffness and aches," Stiles says. "A warm bath with eucalyptus and rosemary oils can increase circulation and decrease inflammation." 

He recommends a 15- to 20-minute soak to reduce soreness and improve movement.
