EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week Is a Great Opportunity for a Spa Gift Card

If the idea of having a massage seems a little "extravagant,” one of the largest membership organizations representing professionals in the field has a self-evident key message around the upcoming "EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week," which takes place July 16-22. And, while the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals is credible in its own right, the people at the Mayo Clinic also tout the health benefits of getting a massage.

While massage may generally be considered part of complementary and alternative medicine, it's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. And, says the Mayo Clinic, studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.

Some studies have found massage may also be helpful in treating:

• Anxiety

• Digestive disorders

• Fibromyalgia

• Headaches

• Insomnia related to stress

• Myofascial pain syndrome

• Soft tissue strains or injuries

• Sports injuries

• Temporomandibular joint pain

Some people also enjoy massage because of the feelings of caring, comfort and connection it can generate.

All of the above are good reasons to embrace massage and, during "EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week," this seems like a great time to take a second look.

It’s easy to take action and show your employees and customers that you appreciate the benefits of massage with an NGC Spa & Wellness Gift Card by Spa Week—during "EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week"—or anytime.

This may be just the opportunity you were waiting for!
