Advice & Tips: I am a massage therapist. Massages are great for people that suffer from depression or mood disorder. A massage is very relaxing and relieves the tension you carry in your shoulder and neck area. Also, massages relieve headaches as well. Most of massages increase the hormone of Cortisol which is a stress reduction hormone.
Cost: < $25 monthly
