Why You Need a Massage During the Holidays

‘Tis the season! The holidays are all about giving to others – but what about yourself? During this often stressful, jam-packed time, the first person you need to take care of is you! Massage isn’t just for pampering; massage therapy is good for both your physical and mental health and well-being.

If you need a little convincing, here are a few great reasons why you need a massage during the holiday season:

Massage reduces stress

You’ve heard it again and again – because it’s true! Massage therapy is one of the best ways to reduce stress, and we all know that stress multiplies during the holiday season. With so much to get done in so little time, the best thing you can do for yourself is schedule a massage. Even just one short massage will help clear your head, balance your body and mind, and rejuvenate you for the busy time ahead. You will be able to tackle your to-do list with a much more level head and a less chaotic mind.

Brr…it’s cold!

If stress isn’t reason enough, just step outside. It’s freezing! Cold temperatures mean tight muscles, stiff joints, and all over aches and pains. Fight the cold, warm up your muscles, and relieve discomfort with a relaxing massage.

You need a break

Holiday time really puts your body through it all. From carrying loads of heavy shopping bags, to crawling around in small spaces moving heavy boxes in search of decorations, to actually decorating, to cooking, cleaning, and sleeping less – you are doing more than you are used to on a normal basis. Your body and mind need a break to avoid burnout before the holidays are even over. A massage can help you feel refreshed and ready for anything.

Give yourself the gift of massage this holiday season to help you power through into the new year!
