Massages have long been a common gift throughout the holiday seasons. Whether it’s Christmas, a birthday, or Valentine’s Day, a massage gift card can make anyone smile. However, many people don’t consider what it really means to give someone the gift of massage. Here are a few ways you may not have known you were showing your love.
1. The Gift of Relaxation
Relaxation means more than just taking a few minutes out of your day to be alone. Massage therapy can help ease tension, relieve stress, and promote overall relaxation. If you have a hard-working spouse, mother, or friend, a massage gift card can bring one (or more!) days of peace to a rather chaotic work schedule. Show someone you care by helping them prioritize themselves.
2. The Gift of Recovery
If you have an athlete in your life who prioritizes their physical health, we can tell you that massage therapy should be a part of that routine. Massage therapy can help athletes recover from injuries or after competitions and meets. Massage therapy is good for athletes of all ages, too. Give the gift of recovery and revitalization to the person in your life who is running circles around everyone else.
3. The Gift of Preparation
In addition to aiding recovery, massage therapy can help prepare you for a variety of physical activities. Massage can help warm up and stretch muscles that may have otherwise felt tension before an event. You can even use massage to help someone prepare for everyday life. A morning massage appointment can make all the difference in the work day. Whether your loved one is running the 9-5 race or hitting the pavement, massage can make a difference.
4. The Gift of Self-Love
Everyone should take time out to give themselves a little bit of attention. Help your wife, husband, mother, or father focus on their own wellbeing by giving them a reason to get a massage. Gift cards are the perfect way to allow someone to make time for themselves.
5. The Gift of Community
When you give a gift card from San Francisco School of Massage & Bodywork, you allow someone to connect with their community. Our students are people just like you. They work hard and are passionate about what they do and how it affects others. Your loved one can help a fellow citizen practice a craft they care about, all while making a connection with someone who can be a friend in the future.
