Why is Massage Therapy a Great Gift?

Massage might be something that’s always on your to-do list, but there are some people who just never seem to get around to me-time, and they need to know the restorative powers of a good massage therapy session.

If you’re looking for a gift for someone who seems to have it all, or even just someone close to you that needs spoiling, here’s why a massage is the best choice for a gift!

It shows that you’ve put a little thought into the gift.

You could wander around the gift selections in stores or just order something online, but if you treat a friend or a loved one to a blissful massage, it says “I really thought about you, and I thought you needed a massage.”

Flowers and chocolates can be uninspiring, even if we all enjoy them, but for a truly unique gift, search for a massage treatment that your recipient will adore. If they have had massage before, why not give them a type they’ve not experienced; a Salt Stone Massage, Chinese Massage or Indian Head Massage?

It might be the nudge somebody needs towards trying massage for themselves.

Some people have never had a massage, and it’s people like that who need one the most, so why not think of their well-being and find give them the gift of a lovely, relaxing massage treatment? They might have thought massage wasn’t for them, or that it’s something people treat themselves to on spa trips, but once you’ve introduced them to the joy of massage, they’ll be hooked. Everyone loves massage; some people just need to try it.

Everyone needs a little time out; some people never seem to make time for themselves.

Everyone is too busy. Treat someone special to the gift of paid-for me time, and give them a massage voucher so that they can have an hour, at least, where they don’t have to put everyone else first.

One of the best gifts that you can give anyone is time. Why not give someone who’s eternally busy the gist of time out. Some space to breathe and disconnect from everyday stresses? An hour or so of blissful quiet and relaxation could be the best present anyone gets this year!

It shows you care for their health.

Massage is the gift that keeps on giving, the option that says you really do care for someone’s health and well-being. It gives the recipient a healthy dose of happy hormones, promotes movement and increased flexibility, and eases aches, pains and stress. What better way to treat someone?

The ideal gift shows that you really care – well enough to want to make someone happy, rather than handing over something expensive and overpriced that you saw in the store and took a fancy to. A voucher to book a massage will result in a big smile and it ticks all the boxes. And there’s one more thing we haven’t mentioned…

You get to go along if you book one for yourself at the same time!

Massage Therapy, the perfect gift!

Even if your dad is a newcomer to massage therapy and probably wouldn’t book a massage session for himself, he’s probably always wondered what a massage would be like. Take the decision out of his hands and give him an opportunity to find out for himself with a massage voucher for Father’s Day on the 16th of June.

As any massage lover knows, a massage isn’t just something you get after an injury or to relax when you’ve been overdoing it, it’s an important part of a healthy lifestyle that’s good for you in its own right.

Massage therapy is a good preventative step you can take to keep yourself healthy; treating your dad to massage is a way of telling him that you care and want him to stay well.

What better way to show a great dad just how much he means to you? If you need any more convincing, here are a few benefits you might like to share with him on Father’s Day.

What Can Massage Therapy Do for Your Dad?

  • – Regular massage can help to improve his physical performance. As men (and women) get older it undeniably gets a bit harder to stay fit, but scheduling in regular massage therapy can help by improving flexibility and overall physical performance, which means your dad gets to stay more active for longer.
  • – It helps to keep his blood pressure lower. Cardiovascular health is a big health concern, especially for men, and a dose of regular massage can be a real help with lowering blood pressure if it’s on the high side. It also helps reduce stress and tension.
  • – It’s good for raising immunity. Rather than dealing with the misery of colds and minor illnesses, strengthen his immune system with a massage so that he can fight them off better. Studies have shown that massage therapy really does help to boost natural immunity and increase well-being, which will help your dad to fight off disease and improve his quality of life too.
  • – It helps to boost energy, and improve feelings of well-being and vitality.

With all those benefits, you have to admit that a massage gift voucher is much better for your dad this Father’s Day than another pair of socks or some whisky!
