With Father’s Day just around the corner, you might be entering panic-mode when it comes to finding a great gift. Dads (grandpas, husbands, step-fathers, uncles, guys in general) can be some of the hardest people to shop for – why get him another tie he’ll never wear or another mug he’ll never use? This year, show your dad how much you appreciate him by giving the gift of relaxation, peace, and comfort with massage therapy.
Massage is the perfect way to improve both physical and mental well-being. Giving the gift of massage can help relieve the many trials of fatherhood, such as:
- Exhaustion and stress. At the end of the day, whether it be from work, worry, or fathering duties, your dad is due for a much needed break. Massage can help lower his body’s levels of the stress hormone cortisol, making it easier to relax his mind and fall asleep at night. It has also been shown to give a boost of energy and immunity.
- High blood pressure. Let’s face it, raising kids is no easy task! If your dad suffers from high blood pressure, regular massage therapy can improve circulation and decrease both diastolic and systolic blood pressure.
- Worn out body. To keep your dad outside playing with the kids or grandkids, massage can help improve his flexibility and the range of motion of his joints (and make him less prone to injuries).
- Just because! Even if your dad is the picture of health, massage is the perfect way to give him some well-deserved pampering. Even if he’s never tried massage before, relaxing for just an hour will leave him feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and appreciated this Father’s Day.
With so many varieties of massage, this can truly be a personalized gift custom-made to suit his specific needs. The gift of health and well-being is better than a card or generic gift any day! Celebrate that special man in your life by giving him the opportunity to experience the benefits of massage therapy.
