Show You Care with the Gift of Massage
It's true: everybody deserves a massage and there's an entire week - July 15-21 - with that as the entire message.
The hands in play are those of massage therapists and body workers, who lend their "hearts and hands" to raise awareness of the benefits of having a massage and draw attention to the importance of taking care of your own physical wellness. The week itself is sponsored by Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP) to promote the benefits of massage, with participating spas and massage therapists offering various discounts and specials on treatments.
There's another way to do even more good and that's through National Gift Card. By offering a Spa & Wellness Gift Card by Spa Week, employees, customers, friends and family will get the benefit from a massage in exactly the place they need to be.
Certainly, experts from the Mayo Clinic agree that massage, which is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine, is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. While more research may be needed to confirm the benefits of massage, the Mayo Clinic says some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:
- Digestive disorders
- Insomnia related to stress
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Temporomandibular joint pain
Beyond the benefits of specific conditions or diseases, many people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.
