Struggling to find the perfect Christmas gift this Christmas? If you’re tired of handing out alcohol, aftershave, socks, and celebrations then you’ve just found the ultimate universally loved Christmas gift that’s sure to bring joy. A massage!

Whether your loved ones are on a diet, cutting down on alcohol, or pregnant, a massage is the perfect gift for everyone.

If you want to help a loved one improve their mental and physical wellbeing, then a massage comes with many health benefits and is the gift that keeps on giving.

Here are some of our most popular massage treatments in our Leeds and Wakefield clinics and the types of loved ones each treatment would suit:

Hot Stone Massage

Treating your partner to a Hot Stone Massage is a great way to spoil your partner. Hot Stone Massage is a comforting and deeply relaxing massage. The hot basalt stones are warm and soothing and relaxes the body’s central nervous system. Lower your partner’s stress levels over the Christmas holidays by gifting them with a Hot Stone Massage Voucher.

Benefits include:

  • Deep relaxation
  • Decreased stress levels
  • Loosened stiff joints

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage, also known as a ‘classic massage’ is perfect for your elderly loved ones. This gentle and purely relaxational massage will increase blood flow and lower blood pressure whilst being one of the most comfortable types of massage. Swedish massage can treat muscle tension whilst being less firm than a deep tissue or sports massage. It’s a holistic massage meaning that it focuses on treating your whole emotional, spiritual, and physical wellbeing.

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Relieved stress
  • Relieved muscle tension

Deep Tissue Massage/Sports Massage

Treat your athletic and physically active loved ones to a deep tissue massage or a sports massage. The firm and deep pressure used during the deep tissue massage techniques will remove any knots and muscle tension and can increase athletic performance. Sports massage can target specific areas of pain and tension in the body and deep tissue massage will relax the full body.

  • Relief from soft tissue injury
  • Increased serotonin
  • Increased mobility

Pregnancy Massage

Your pregnant loved ones will be grateful for a comforting and relaxing pregnancy massage. There are many ‘feel good’ benefits from massage which can help with the anxiety and depression that many mum’s-to-be feel during their pregnancy. Treat both mother and baby this Christmas with a pregnancy massage.

  • Reduced swelling
  • Relaxation
  • Reduced back pain

As you can see there is a perfect holistic or remedial massage treatment out there for everyone. Surprise your loved ones this year and treat them to something new.
