Massage Therapy to Relieve Tired Eyes: This technique is great for tired eyes from staring at the computer — it brings circulation to the area and relieves sinus pressure, eye strain, and headaches.
Close your eyes. Place your thumbs under your eyebrows, starting at the inside corner of each eye socket. Press and gently move the thumbs in tiny circles, working slowly towards the outsides of your eyebrows and continuing this movement all around your eyes, ending back at the bridge of your nose.
Repeat this several times, spending a little extra time at the indentation of the inner eye socket, where the bridge of the nose meets the ridge of the eyebrows – an especially tender point on many people
Take Epson salt baths: An Epsom salt bath is known to relieve inflammation and pain, making it beneficial in the treatment of sore muscles and migraines.
It is made of two components: Magnesium and Sulphate.
Stress drains the body of magnesium, when dissolved in warm water magnesium sulphate is absorbed through the skin and replenishes the levels of magnesium in the body.
The magnesium helps to produce serotonin, a mood elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of calm and relaxation.
In addition research shows that magnesium also increases energy and stamina by encouraging the production of ATP (the energy packets made in cells).
Experts believe bathing in Epsom salts at least three times a week, helps you to feel better, look better, and gain more energy

As important is strengthening as stretching: Knowing which muscles are not working that should be, and giving a break to those that are over working would aid for posture, thus overall general muscle tension.
Get massage at regular basis: It not only helps you to cope with stress and related muscle tension, massage maintains your body, preventing it from potential injuries or flirt ups.
