On Valentine’s Day it’s common to see cliché gifts of flowers, chocolate and cards. Those who go all out may even pick out a nice piece of jewelry or plan a fancy dinner. But, if you’re looking for a unique gift that will truly benefit your significant other, it’s time to give the gift of massage this Valentine’s Day.
1 – Massage truly says, “I care about you”.
Chocolate is a great indulgence and jewelry can be an exquisite proclamation of, “you mean a lot to me”, but do any of the typical Valentine’s Day gifts offer any health benefits? No, but massage does! So this year, offer your valentine a gift that will actually help them and show that you truly want them around for as long as possible.
2- Massage is an experience
Unlike chocolates or other consumables massage offers the gift of an experience. Massage offers positive impacts that last long after the massage is over. For example, massage can help increase blood circulation and sooth aching muscles. Doesn’t that sound better than getting a stomach ache from a bag of chocolate?
3 – Massage helps with Stress
Massage can calm anxiety and can help with depression. Massage calms the nervous system and assists the release of feel-good chemicals and hormones such as oxytocin, dopamine, serotonin and epinephrine . Stress is one of the major contributing factors to all disease, from the common cold to cancer. No one is immune to stress and after the last year we have all been through wouldn’t it be nice to give this gift of wellness to your special someone?
4 – Massage helps chronic pain
Do you know someone that suffers from chronic pain? Give them the gift of relief. What says, “I care about you” more than that? There’s a simple solution that doesn’t include a ton of medications: massage. After getting a massage your special someone will spend less time suffering from chronic pain and more time enjoying your company!
