Thanksgiving is a week away and we all know what that means. A lot of hours planning, shopping, and cooking. Many of us will get up early or spend a few hours Black Friday shopping. We might begin to decorate our homes for the holidays. Some of us might be making flight or travel reservations. Even if you don't celebrate, the hustle and bustle might start to affect you.
The holiday season is typically a stressful time for many Americans. Stress is never good, and it's also considered a risk factor for many chronic conditions. Getting a massage is one thing that can help reduce that stress by reducing or eliminating headaches, anxiety, and tight muscles. It is one gift that will give back again and again. Massage therapy can be effective for a variety of conditions, including arthritis, lower back pain, insomnia, circulatory problems, and recovery from a sports injury. It's also been proven to aid in stress relief and promoting relaxation.
If you haven't already, you may want to consider booking yourself a massage in November and December to help you relax and feel better. You can also purchase a massage gift certificate for your loved ones!
One of my massage offerings is Bamboo Fusion. I use warm bamboo sticks, which are perfect for a cold winter day. The warm bamboo sticks act as an extension of the hands for a deep tissue massage. Bamboo tools allow for a deeper massage than is possible with hands alone. It promotes relaxation, circulation and well-being.
Do yourself a favor this season and consider booking a massage.
