Treat your sweetheart to a gift that speaks to the body – a custom massage! Sometimes it is the simple things that have the biggest effect. Here are 6 reasons why a massage should be at the top of your Valentine’s Day gift list:
1. Stress relief
Massage calms the nervous system and assists the release of feel-good chemicals and hormones. A Valentine’s Day session can be a Swedish or a deep tissue massage, which will add a level of deep relaxation to your time on the table.
2. Mood boost
Imagine you and your loved one lying side-by-side on massage tables, each of you receiving a massage customized to your needs with lightly scented oils. Whether it’s a night out or in, you both will be in a more soothing state of being after your session.
3. Pain alleviation
Massage makes the body feel better by increasing circulation, improving flexibility and releasing those knots and crinkles that can develop in muscles. Massage has been shown to reduce low- and upper-back pain, neck pain and headache, and to be effective for chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis. When combined with aromatherapy, the pain-relieving effects of massage can be even more profound and long-lasting.
Booking a massage session will create an open space for one to set up a self-care routine. A massage session offers a way to decompose everyday stress and sends your body a more positive message.
5. Self-care time
Massage is therapeutic and can also be a comforting experience that takes the client to his or her happy place. To enhance your Valentine’s Day session, include essential oils or add hot stones to even further customize your massage to your specific needs.
6. Heart health
Massage has been found to reduce heart rate and to have a lasting, positive effect on both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Expand the traditional idea of a Valentine’s Day heart to giving a loved one a gift for the heart.
From one heart to another, show your significant other you love them inside and out. Nothing says, “I truly care for you and your health” like a LaVida Massage + Skincare.
