Who Doesn’t Love a Massage?

One of the best parts about giving a massage as a gift to a loved one is that there isn’t any guesswork because who doesn’t love a massage! Do you have a family member or friend who is difficult to buy for? Not anymore, you don’t!

Massages are nearly universally loved for their ability to rejuvenate, relax, and repair the body. Since the holidays and the winter season is especially hard on everyone, receiving a gift card for a massage to start the new year is the best way to give the body and mind a chance to hit the reset button.

A Different Kind of Gift

When most people think of gifts, they think of nicely wrapped boxes with an item inside. Giving a massage is a great way to show someone that you thought outside the box for them. Instead of giving them something tangible, you are giving them an experience, the memory of which will last a long time.

Hand in Health offers a variety of massage packages for every type of person. Check out their selection (link to services page)!

Self Care

Taking time to put together and keep up with a self-care routine is absolutely essential these days. It is so easy to fall into the hole of forgetting to take care of yourself when stress is so frequently encountered in our day-to-day lives. Unfortunately, it can be hard for busy people to find time to do this, which is why giving them an excuse to take some time for themselves with the gift of a massage may be just what they need this holiday season.

If you know someone who is always busy and finds themselves working hard to make sure other people are taken care of, a massage really is the best gift you could give them. It lets them know that their actions are appreciated. It gives them an opportunity to relax, as well as reminds them that they are worth the time it takes to really take care of themselves in ways they may not have before.

Physical & Mental Benefits

To go along with how much joy a massage will bring, there are also many physical and mental health benefits that come along with getting one. According to the National University of Health Sciences, massages are linked to lower blood pressure, improved sleep, reduced stress, and much more!

Winding Down

Between the stresses of everyday life and the holiday season quickly approaching, there is no better time to give someone you love and appreciate the gift of a massage. Let them know that it’s time to relax and unwind. Not only will they love and cherish the gift, but they will also love you all the more for it.

This holiday season, make sure you are taking care of yourself and the ones you love with a gift that says, “you’ve done so much for the people around you; it’s time to take care of yourself.” From everyone at Hand in Health, Happy Holidays!
