Mother’s Day is celebrated every year on the second Sunday of May.
A Mother’s Day massage session provides relaxation, pain relief and deep nurturance: Studies show massage therapy boosts the release of the feel-good hormones oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine, all of which increase feelings of contentment.

According to the Gregorian or “New Style” calendar that is most commonly used today, George Washington was born on February 22, 1732. But according to the Julian or “Old Style” calendar that was used in England until 1752, his birth date was February 11th. Back in the 1790s, Americans were split – some celebrated his birthday on February 11th and some on February 22nd.
