HOLIDAY STRESS & MASSAGE
The holiday season is officially here, and with it can come added stress.
Many people have high expectations for the holidays-we want to give the perfect gift, or host a wonderful party or dinner. Many families are traveling a long distance or are having guests stay with them. The pressure we put on ourselves to please friends and family can create tension and anxiety, making the holidays less enjoyable. Taking a short time out for a massage can release tension, improve mood, reduce aches and pains and help you to regain your stamina.
Taking a break in the midst of holiday planning and events may seem like a difficult or even impossible task. There are more errands to run, more treats to bake, more presents to buy, and very little time to accomplish it all. However, just 30, 60 or 90 minutes with a massage therapist can provide valuable physical and emotional benefits that can make all the difference. Massage has also been shown to aid immune system function, which can help you to fight off nasty winter colds.
With the economy faltering, and added holiday expenses, a massage might seem like a luxury that just isn't in the budget. However, for the cost comparable to a bottle of wine or a night at the movies, you can receive the healing benefits of therapeutic massage. And, instead of buying gift cards for those on your list who seem to have everything, why not treat them to an enjoyable and relaxing massage?
