Does your better half really 'wish' to open another sweater, tie, pair of earrings, CD, DVD or bottle of cologne under your holiday tree this Christmas? Definitely not! Discovering special, memorable and truly loved gifts is always hard: so why not think outside the Christmas 'box' this season and opt for giving the present of health and wellness instead?
A Gift of Skillful Massage Treatments
There's nothing quite as comforting as lying peacefully in a quiet and serene environment, surrounded by scented candles, comforting music and total refreshment. In fact, it's something you can't really put a figure on! Fortunately, it doesn't have to cost a fortune to buy your better half a series of treatments at your local spa performed by a trained professional massage therapist. Here are some of the many benefits of touch therapy.
Why Massage Therapy is the Gift With Continual Benefits
Regular massage therapy treatments are effective at lowering anxiety and overall stress levels: who couldn't use a little more of that today?
It has been shown to greatly enhance sleep quality: if your sweetie tosses and turns all night long, regular treatments may help!
All that excellent kneading and rubbing enhances overall circulation and thereby helps people concentrate better and self-heal faster following injury.
Studies show that bodywork treatments help alleviate the effects of chronic fatigue
Those who suffer from chronic lower back pain note improved range of motion as well as significant lessening of pain.
It helps to increase joint resilience.
A little time on a massage table helps to release endorphins: the 'feel good' hormones that improve mood.
It's one of the few luxuries in life that are not fattening
You will be giving your partner 'permission' to be completely self-indulgent and enjoy being pampered. Chances are it's not a luxury they would get for themselves!
Massage tables and the talented hands of a therapist are excellent (and legal!) tools that make us feel really, really good!
If you really want to see your partner's face light up this year, forego the enticement to give them the 'same old, same old' and wrap up a gift certificate to your local spa instead. Your consideration at giving a present of health and wellness will be remembered long after the lights come down and the ornaments are stored away.
