Gift ideas for Valentine’s Day
Answer: Need a gift idea for Valentine’s Day? Why not give the gift of relaxation? Today’s world is faster paced than ever before. The advancements of technology have brought advanced stress and fatigue levels along with them and we have lost the art of relaxation. With work, sports, family, commitments and extra curricular activities people are constantly on the go and they just don’t have time to take for themselves. Therapeutic massage can be the answer. In addition to relaxation, a therapeutic massage has many other benefits. Getting a massage on a regular basis can decrease anxiety, enhance sleep quality, improve concentration, reduce fatigue and provide greater energy as well as general well being. Massage can benefit everyone, whether it’s the athlete who has sore muscles from over use or the pregnant mother whose body is swollen from water retention. Massage therapy is also a great tool for alleviating muscle pain, headaches and migraines. There are many different types of massage including Swedish, hot stone, deep tissue, aromatherapy, pregnancy, craniosacral and reflexology just to name a few. Each type promotes different benefits. If you have sore muscles you might want to try a hot stone massage where the heat penetrates deep into the muscles to work out any tension. Or you can combine a deep tissue massage with our muscle relief aromatherapy oils. If you have migraines or headaches a craniosacral massage would be good for working with the spine and skull to ease restrictions of nerve passages. For relaxation purposes a Swedish massage would be perfect, or for added relaxation you can include our relaxation aromatherapy oils. Another great benefit of aromatherapy is that it can help with respiratory problems and sinus relief.
