Some people think of massage as a luxury, a pampering experience… they are not wrong but there is much more to Massage Therapy. Massage is effective for stress relief, pain alleviation and relaxation. It is beneficial for people living with conditions including fibromyalgia and arthritis. Massage is appropriate for just about anyone- healthy adults, seniors, pregnant women and athletes.*
The gift of massage is appreciated by those who are regular clients and an opportunity for those who are new to massage to experience relief they may have needed for a long time.
1. The Gift of Stress Relief
The holidays are filled with family, friends, fun, food and gifts. For some all those wonderful things can bring stress, anxiety and exhaustion. Massage Therapy calms the nervous system and provides an oasis of respite from the holiday frenzy.
2. The Gift of Pain Removal
From hanging the lights, putting up the tree and digging through boxes in the attic to find Hanukkah candles, decorating can cause strain, sprain and pain. A massage addresses pain and stiffness by increasing circulation, improving flexibility, and releasing knots and tight spots from muscles.
3. The Gift of Raised Spirits
The holidays aren’t jolly for everyone; family conflict, feelings of grief and other mood-stressors can arise, even in the midst of celebration. Massage is a mood booster. The release of the feel-good hormone, oxytocin, is increased during massage, as is the release of serotonin and dopamine.
4. The Gift of Ease
Give yourself the gift of a super-simple present purchase. You can order a print-at-home/email gift certificate here. You may also choose to order online and pick up your gift at Changes. The pick-up option allows you to take advantage of our Holiday Specials.
