A massage gift certificate nestled into a card may seem like an unassuming gift. But, the effects of this present are powerful. In addition to being pampered, the recipient of a massage receives relief from pain, stress, anxiety and more.
Here are just a few reasons why a massage is the best gift for the holidays:
- You’re giving the gift of stress relief
The holidays are almost always a frenzy. From shopping, traveling and overeating to friends, family, food and fun - stress is an all too common side effect. Massage works to calm down the nervous system and provide a welcome respite from the holiday frenzy. Whether you gift a Swedish, Ayurvedic, or Stone massage, your gift recipient will surely thank you for the relief.
- You’re giving the gift of pain relief
From hanging up Christmas lights to digging Hanukkah candles out of the garage, the holidays’ activities can create strain, sprain, and pain. Massage is the best holiday gift because it addresses pain and stiffness by increasing circulation, improving flexibility, and releasing tight spots from muscles.
- You’re giving the gift of escape
Massage can transport the recipient to a place of tranquility, calm and well-being. The worries and the stresses of the world melt away as they focus on the serenity, peace and bliss massage brings.
- You’re giving the gift of better posture
Poor posture can lead to musculoskeletal issues in addition to digestion and respiratory problems. Massage relaxes and loosens the sore muscles caused by bad posture, allowing the body to reposition itself in its natural pain-free-posture. Massage loosens the muscles and relaxes the joints for greater freedom and pressure points relief.
- You’re giving the gift of headache relief
Tension headaches are by far the most common type of headaches caused by stress and improper posture. People who suffer tension headaches may also feel overly sensitive to light and sound. Massage can help instantly realign the body for tension and stress relief.
