Gift Certificates for Massage make AWESOME gifts, even for those who have never had a massage.
The health and healing benefits of massage have been well documented, even with infant babies. I am constantly amazed by outcomes.
In the hospital, postpartum massage would often completely change how a new mom was feeling - physically and emotionally. By promoting relaxation, reducing and/or eliminating pain, often times bringing in the breast milk by stimulating and circulating hormones, and speeding up healing overall.
Infant massage has been proven to help infants and caregivers. For babies, massage helps to synchronize the digestive system - which helps with colicky babies. It also helps to tone muscles, develop the sensory system, promotes relaxation, better sleep, better digestion, and so much more. While the baby is learning to love massage, they are also developing trust and communication with the caregiver. For the caregiver, Infant Massage is a tool to comfort and relax the baby. It also helps with bonding as the trust and communication develop during the Infant Massage process.
There are also those who are caregivers of others who are sick and/or aging. They definitely deserve the Gift of Massage. As well as anyone who works hard, or is under a lot of stress, or both. Massage also helps with many different illnesses and various injuries, often times when nothing else will help.
I think we can all think of someone, or several someones who would benefit from massage. But truthfully, a lot of people will NOT spend the money on themselves - especially for a first massage. That is why Gift Certificates make such a GREAT gift!
For the full benefit of total relaxation and a full body massage, 1 hour is best. The cost of a 1 hour massage is $70. 30 minutes is great for working out specific areas, and postpartum healing. A 30 minute massage will cost $40. And, a Gift Certificate for a single session of Infant Massage Instruction is $45. Gift Certificates can always be purchased for a dollar amount which allows the receiver to decide which service they would prefer, and they would always have the option to upgrade.
Gift Certificates are great by themselves and fun to add to gift baskets also.
I hope that you will think of Massage Gift Certificates when you are planning to attend a bridal or baby shower, or are planning to give someone a gift who just had a baby. Or if you just want to do something special for someone you Love....
