Gift a Massage for a Happy Holiday

by Dec 7, 2020

The holidays are coming!  While holidays are often described as warm and merry, the weeks leading up to them can be tense and stressful.  And as if there weren’t enough causes for holiday stress, we can now add covid and canceled flights to the list.

Ok, so now you need to go gift shopping.  And, in case I forgot to mention it, everyone is stressed out.  Seeing as everyone could use a bit of relaxation this time of year, how about gifting a massage?  Even for your own peace of mind, just think about it.  You don’t have to worry about stores being sold out of massages.  You don’t have to wrap massages.  And you definitely needn’t worry about a massage ending up in a thrift store for unwanted Christmas gifts.  We can’t say the same for all the hideous sweaters our aunts gifted us.  The ones that weren’t meant to be hideous, I mean.

Are you familiar with the benefits of massage?  If not, read on to learn all the other reasons why massage makes the perfect gift!

The Benefits of Gifting Massage

  • Reduces stress
  • Relieves pain
  • Improves circulation
  • Promotes restful sleep
  • Enhances physical performance
  • Boosts immunity

Wow!  That’s a lot of benefits!  But I think there needs to be a little extra emphasis on the immunity boost.  Massage, which improves lymph flow, neutralizes toxins, and makes the body less susceptible to infection.  During this crazy 2020, taking care of our immunity is more important than ever.  So when you give the gift of bodywork, you’re doing more than just giving a 1-hour escape from hectic reality.

Also, keep in mind, we take our sanitary precautions seriously.  Here is a list of everything we do to keep our clients and therapists safe.

How To Give the Gift of Massage

You can purchase a gift certificate at the office, over the phone, or through our online store.

We can email the gift certificate, or mail it directly to the recipient. Give the gift of wellness this holiday season!

Again, happiest of happy holidays!  Stay happy and healthy!
