Are you struggling to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list this year? Why not offer the gift that keeps on giving — health! And while you can’t wrap “health” up and put it under the tree, you can offer your friends and family a gift certificate for chiropractic care or a massage. Both of these self-care treatments deliver a wealth of benefits to keep your loved ones feeling their best mentally and physically.

Here are five great reasons why you should be gifting – or treating yourself to – chiropractic and massage services for every holiday!

1. It Eases Pain.

If your loved one is constantly talking about pain in their neck, back, shoulders, or even just works a job that causes discomfort, then chiropractic is a no-brainer. This form of therapy offers near-immediate pain relief in many situations by releasing pressure off the nerves and discs, reducing inflammation and re-aligning the spine.

When you know of someone who has suffered injuries and is still having trouble healing or suffering with chronic or acute pain, you want to help in any way possible — and with Bend Total Body, you can! Our newest technique, Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (SWT) may be just what someone needs to finally experience comfort. As part of our chiropractic treatment, SWT sends acoustic waves into deep muscles to restart the healing process and relieve discomfort stemming from older injuries and accidents.

2. It’s Stress Relieving.

Not only are the holidays extra stressful, but so is everyday life balancing work, kids, finances and more. Help your friends and family recover from the season and enter the new year Zen with a deep tissue or Swedish massage. Both techniques work to relax the muscles and give them time to unplug so that they feel happier and healthier. Studies even show that massage therapy can physically reduce the stress hormone levels within the body to encourage calmness and relaxation.

3. It Shows You Care.

Chiropractic and massage aren’t just “things,” like a pair of socks or a gift card grabbed at the last minute. It’s a thoughtful experience that shows your loved ones you care about their well-being and overall health. When you gift a session with Total Body Chiropractic & Massage, you are making sure they feel their best.

4. It’s Simple.

While chiropractic care and massage therapy are extremely thoughtful gifts, they are also simple. There’s no scheduling or customizing involved. You simply deliver the chiropractic visit and we’ll handle the rest, including the full-body assessment and subsequent treatment option. Your loved one will receive the best therapy option for their needs, and you get to sit back and relax knowing you offered a present that made them feel better.

5. Because YOU Deserve It!

Don’t forget about yourself! After all the planning, shopping, cooking and general holiday cheer, you also deserve a special treat and health boost. You can’t pour from an empty cup, so take some time to rest and recharge. Plus, treating yourself with a self-care service can help you get a start on those New Year Resolutions towards a healthier, more wholesome you!

You’d be surprised how many of your friends and family have never received chiropractic care — or even a massage —but could benefit from either service. These services are a good gift for moms, dads, athletes and coworkers alike. Be the person that offers them the solution for their pain and invests in their health this year by gifting a certificate to Total Body Chiropractic & Massage.
