Can you believe another holiday season is already upon us? Time is flying by and — if you’re anything like us — you haven’t even thought about your shopping list yet.
Before you start to panic, here’s a suggestion for the 2022 holiday season: a massage gift card for your friends and family members. Not only is this a thoughtful and practical gift, but it comes with a long list of benefits for the recipient.
Here are five reasons why you should buy massage gift cards for your loved ones.
1. Great for Mental Health
2020 was ranked “the perfect storm of stress.” And for many of us, 2021 wasn’t much better.
With stress levels at an all-time high, it’s more important than ever to prioritize our mental health. Massage therapy provides a safe, natural solution to effectively managing stress and anxiety by:
- Lowering cortisol and other stress hormones
- Boosting serotonin, dopamine, and other “feel good” hormones
- Improving sleep quality and alleviating insomnia
No, a massage won’t magically solve your problems, but it will put you in a better mental state to cope with them.
2. Boosts the Immune System
Nearly two years into a global pandemic, we’re all concerned about keeping our immune systems healthy and strong. If you think massage therapy has no effect on your body’s immune system, think again.
Numerous studies reveal that even occasional massages produce measurable changes in the body’s immune and endocrine function. With a massage gift card, you can (quite literally) give the gift of good health!
3. Eases Aches & Pains
Do you know someone who struggles with chronic pain from arthritis or fibromyalgia? Or perhaps you know somebody who’s an athlete and they’re always pushing their body to the physical limit.
Massage therapy is one of the best ways to soothe pain, soreness, and inflammation. Whether it’s a sports massage for sore muscles or a relaxing Swedish massage for someone with an autoimmune condition, there’s a modality that’s perfect for everyone on your shopping list.
4. Fully Customizable Experience
One of many reasons to choose Simply Massage is that our massage sessions are fully customizable. You don’t have to worry about whether your friend would prefer a Swedish or a deep tissue massage — they can decide when they get here!
Gift cards can cover special circumstances, such as a prenatal massage session for your favorite mother-to-be. You can also buy a discount package that an entire family or group of friends can share.
5. Thoughtful & Original Gift Idea
Most of us don’t get enough downtime. Whether we’re busy studying, working, or keeping fit, it’s hard to juggle “me time” with all our other responsibilities.
Rather than buying another boring scarf or the umpteenth electronic gadget, why not give your loved ones something they truly need — the chance to unplug, relax, and recharge naturally?
They’re sure to be touched by your thoughtfulness!
Give the Gift of Relaxation With a Massage Gift Card
Yes, massage is a relaxing and luxurious experience. But it goes far beyond pampering, offering an array of physical, mental, and emotional health benefits for the recipient.
