The Best Mother’s Day Gift!

Posted by Dr. Gray on Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Mother's Day Massage 50% web graphicYes, gentlemen (and ladies!), it’s that time of year again. What are you going to get Mom for Mother’s Day this year? Flowers?… Again?… at the last minute? Come on. You can do better than that.

This woman first chose to risk carrying you and sacrificing half of her nutrition and immune system for nine months just to bring you into this world. She’s spent the rest of your life being your biggest champion, your taxi, your waitress, your maid, your coach, your banker, your protector, your healer, and Lord knows what else! Don’t you think she deserves something special?

This year, really pamper her with a gift that selfless mothers, too often, won’t buy for themselves… a relaxing, therapeutic massage. Tell her that it’s all about her this year. No flowers that sit around for everyone to enjoy. This is a gift for her… just her. She can schedule a time of her choosing. She can pick the type of massage that she wants. She can spend some time without anyone asking her to do something for them… this is her time.

Did you know? Massage has been proven to help:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improvingcirculation.
  • Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.

Give her the gift of health. Give her something that she’ll love. Not only that… GIVE HER TWO!!! That’s right. When you purchase a massage gift certificate between now and Mother’s Day, you’ll receive a second massage of equal or lesser value at half the regular price! Give her both… or take care of two Moms at once. Either way, you’ve put some thought into it this year, and she’ll thank you for it. Heck, while you’re at it, pick her up a bottle of Biofreeze, too.

Hurry up! You’re running out of time… again…
