Speaking of giving, the best gift I got after having my first born was a gift certificate for a massage. Is there a mom in your life who could use one? They'll appreciate it as much as (and possibly even more) other gifts because it's the gift of time and relaxation. You can even buy a gift card online or treat someone to a membership. Perhaps this is also an idea you can drop hints about with your spouse...
I can't leave off Hot Stone Envy - their signature service - which uses smooth, warm stones in a 1 1/2 hour customized massage therapy session to relax the body and allow better blood flow for a more even more soothing experience. Using hot stones gives the therapist easier access to the deeper muscle layers to relieve pain, increase metabolism and circulation, and experience a wonderful feeling of healthy relaxation. Hot stone massages are truly my favorite kind of massage - you have to try it, there's nothing like it.
You can also add on enhanced therapies to any massage session at Massage Envy. Those include:
- AromaTherapy: Ease anxiety, improve circulation, and even promote restful sleep with one of four unique oil blends
- Sugar Foot Scrub Therapy: Relax and relieve aches in your feet
- Deep Muscle Therapy: Experience the relief of therapeutic warming ointment and relaxing cooling gel
That's not all! Durham's Massage Envy Spa also offers Murad® Healthy Skin facials to improve your skin texture, tone and appearance. They also offer a wide variety of spa items for purchase, from muscle roller balls to skincare products, so that you can continue the experience at home between sessions. No matter what your preference - or even if you're not sure what you want - their professional massage therapists and estheticians will work with you to customize your session just for you.
Just in case you think you don't deserve to be pampered, it's important to note that getting a massage isn't just me-time to relax, but it's also proven to be medically beneficial. Study after study has shown that massage therapy can have many positive benefits, including improving circulation, lowering blood pressure, correcting poor posture, relaxing muscles, improving flexibility and range of motion, promoting deeper breathing, relieving headaches, strengthening the immune system, enhancing post operative and post injury rehabilitation. Even a single massage session can lower heart rate, cortisol, and insulin levels. We all know that stress is a killer, it's hard on the heart and the mind. Massage therapy can help.
