A Great Valentine’s Day Gift Idea –
February 14th, whether you love it or hate it, it’s Valentine’s Day. The typical box of chocolates, roses, and stuffed animals with red and pink hearts get old pretty fast year after year, so what else is out there? How about giving that special someone the gift of a relaxation massage from a Registered Massage Therapist! Valentine’s Day gift certificates for a massage at Davie Village RMT are now available on our website. Even better, they never expire, which means they can be used year-round to model to your personal schedule. Don’t have a special someone in your life? There is nothing wrong with some personal TLC and treating yourself to a Swedish or Deep Tissue Massage in lieu of staying at home indulging in chocolates.
Benefits of Relaxation Massage
In today’s fast-paced, “Go, go, go” society and workaholic culture, most of us don’t give much thought to taking time for relaxation. As a result, unwanted weight gain, mood disorders, recurring headaches, stomach problems, and unhealthy eating and sleep habits are an all too common occurrence for many. Taking the time to relax is a very important factor for staying healthy that many people tend to overlook. In fact, relaxation does not always have to be anything too costly such as a vacation to a tropical destination – it can be anything as simple as making space in the day for a bit of “you time”. As an anonymous person once said, “Every time you say no to someone else, you are saying yes to yourself.”
Relaxation massage performed by a registered massage therapist uses gentle, smooth motions and is performed at a slower pace than other forms of massage. Relaxation massage stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers and “feel good” chemicals that shift the body from “go go go” mode to “rest and relaxation” mode, which decreases blood pressure, heart rate, improved sleep patterns, digestion, and increased circulation.
