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…

Back to Sanity web graphic

Click Here For Details!!!

Back to school this… back to school that… go here… go there… buy these supplies… need new shoes… pants are too short this year… you want me to bring HOW MANY boxes of kleenex this year?… these markers are okay, those aren’t… of course, last year’s backpack just won’t do… AAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Sound familiar? Well, everybody else can help you with your mandatory “back to school” duties… we’re going to help in another way:

BACK TO SANITY! Now that the kids are in school, the shopping is (hopefully) done, and you can take a deep breath… it’s finally MOM TIME! Dads, too! Grandma & Grandpa count! In fact, we’re all included. Summer vacation has come to a close. Everyone is getting back in the groove, and it’s time to reward yourself for surviving another hectic year. From now through the end of September, purchase one massage and you can get  the second one of equal or lesser value for HALF PRICE! Get them for yourself, your loved ones, and co-workers… you deserve it! This applies to gift certificates, as well.

See you soon!

10th Anniversary LogoRead through the end to see how you can share and save!

Can you believe it’s been ten years in our new office already? Many of you have been with us since before we moved, and have been with us through our growth and changes. Still others have been with us for just a short time. Regardless of how long you’ve chosen Gray Chiropractic for your health care needs, WE THANK YOU!!! We couldn’t have done it without you, and we’re glad to have you in our family. I’ll refrain from getting long-winded and get to the point:

As part of our 10th Anniversary Celebration, all new patients from now until the end of August will pay only $10 out-of-pocket for their first visit’s services! That includes consultation with one of our doctors, necessary examinations, and x-rays if necessary! Insurance or not, the only thing coming out of your pocket for your first visit is ten bucks. If you or someone you know has been putting off their health needs because of concern regarding initial visit fees, now is the time to take advantage of this offer! Want more???

For our existing patients, every time you refer a new patient to our office from now until the end of August, you will receive a 25% Off coupon that can be used for massage, supplements, joint supports, Biofreeze, etc. that doesn’t expire until 2014!

Please share this with your Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ friends… and anywhere else you might help us spread the word. Thanks again to all of you, and we’re looking forward to the next ten years!
