Holidays are a time to do both – give and receive massage

Give and Receive Massage During the Holidays

Holidays can be an intensely hectic period for most. People may be busy shopping, cooking, entertaining and traveling or trying to balance work and family obligations. Massage can help ease stress. And giving a loved one a gift certificate for massage may encourage them to take better care of themselves during this busy holiday season.

Give a Massage

Holidays are a time for spreading love and exchanging presents, and giving someone massage can make the perfect present. Massage not only feels wonderful, but it promotes both physical and psychological healing – massage involves gentle stroking, pressing, manipulating or stretching of skin muscles tendons ligaments or organs as part of an integrative medicine treatment for illnesses or injuries as well as increasing levels of happiness hormones, lower stress levels and creating an atmosphere of peace and contentment in an individual.

Massage has many health benefits in addition to providing relaxation. Massage can increase range of motion in tight or stiff muscles and joints, particularly around the neck and back, providing relief from arthritis or chronic conditions like backache or sciatica pain [Source]. Massage also stimulates immunity to prevent and treat infections as well as ease depression caused by holiday loss of loved ones or close friends.

At Christmas time, many are preoccupied with traveling, shopping and planning parties – leaving little time for relaxing or rejuvenation. Stress levels tend to run high while cold weather aggravates joint conditions; massage therapy can provide much- needed respite during this hectic period and the recipient will appreciate a break from its hectic pace.

Massage can be an unforgettable experience for couples, parents and siblings who want to spoil themselves this holiday season. A couple’s massage can deepen communication and romance between partners; an individual session allows the giver an escape from crowds and time with someone special.

Massage therapists can take advantage of the holidays as an opportunity to build relationships with local businesses and offer discounted gift packages. Distributing gift certificates through mail, post cards or posting flyers are effective means of advertising their services and spreading the word about them. Selling gift certificates either in-clinic or through an online website should make purchasing and scheduling sessions as seamless as possible for clients – be prepared for the holiday rush by organizing all materials before it hits!

Get a Massage

Massages can be an incredible gift at any time of the year, but during the holidays it can become even more special. They provide much-needed respite from all of the gift buying and wrapping chaos! Holiday chores such as cleaning the house, cooking for guests and setting up decorations can put immense strain on muscles and joints, particularly during colder temperatures when stiffness increases further.
