Christmas Survival Guide

Christmas Survival Guide

Christmas is a time to celebrate, relax & enjoy with family & friends. But for many, the festive season can be a stressful time of year leaving us feeling stressed, anxious & fatigued. Surviving the season is not always easy, but by maintaining your health & well-being this Christmas period, you can keep on top of the pressures & keep stress to a minimum.

The Christmas period can also bring some physical challenges that you may not experience at other times of the year. The most common complaints we hear are:

Sore feet

We’ve all been there, spending long hours shopping & waiting in lengthy lines for gifts or dancing the night away at the work Christmas party. It’s no surprise that our feet feel it most considering a quarter of all the bones in your body are found in your feet! Accompanied by numerous muscles, joints, ligaments & tendons our feet deserve some special treatment after working so hard. To reduce the load from your feet ensure you are wearing comfortable, supportive shoes and take regular breaks to give your legs & feet a rest. A frozen water bottle rolled under your feet can help, or why not purchase one of our massage balls to use under foot?

Gift wrapping

While it may seem a little silly to mention gift wrapping as a potential issue this Christmas, it really can cause aches & pains if you’re in a bad postural position. To avoid this, try to wrap as you buy & avoid wrapping for prolonged periods of time. Ensure you set yourself up at a table or desk that is the correct height & avoid sitting on the floor. Have all your supplies such as sticky tape and gift tags within easy reach to avoid leaning forward, putting strain on your back and neck. Or buy gift bags and avoid it all together!

Purchase our Gift Vouchers Online and no wrapping is required! Prevent injuries, avoid the crowds and just print off their gift. Alternatively, you can come into our clinic for a printed gift voucher and envelope.

Stress

There are things you can do to help with the stress & to make this time of year more enjoyable, such as balancing your time spent on others with doing something for yourself. Try to take a walk, read a book, have a bath or book in for a massage to relieve your stress and get a break from the kids or in-laws 😉

Muscle sprains/strains

Partied a little too hard and misjudged your dance moves while doing the ‘Worm’ or the ‘Running man’? While we may not be able to restore your pride, we may be able to assist you with your injury & recovery.

So if you find yourself feeling stressed or dealing with a Christmas related injury, why not book yourself in for a massage & let me help you have a relaxed & enjoyable Christmas.

Who Needs A Massage Gift Voucher This Christmas?

Who Needs A Massage Gift Voucher This Christmas?

With less than 5 weeks to go until Christmas, it’s time to start thinking about your Christmas Shopping. If you are anything like me, you have barely purchased a thing for Christmas. We also have our son’s birthday 9 days before so double shopping needs to be done. I do not want to be going anywhere near Macarthur Square or Campbelltown Mall next month so looking for alternatives helps crowd fearing people like me. Massage is a gift that suits many people. Have you thought about who needs a Massage Gift Voucher this Christmas? The Person Who Has Everything We all have a family member who have everything you could think of to purchase them at Christmas. In this day and age we can pretty much get anything we want, when we want so material objects are easy to obtain. When it comes to self care though, this is often something we put last on our lists. So if you are stuck to find something creative, a Massage Gift Voucher will give that person something they don’t already have.  Grandma or Grandpa I have clients in their 70s, 80s and 90s. They are of the generation that worked hard and never really thought of themselves. Some of these clients are having their first massage ever at this age. They are also at a stage in life where they don’t want to accumulate more stuff. They would rather have experiences and finally take care of themselves. A Massage Gift Voucher leaves their house uncluttered (well no more than it already is) and gives them a wonderful way to relax. Massage can be more gentle for our older clients and care taken when helping them on and off the table.  The Person Who Puts Up With Pain Too Long We are all time poor and focused on caring for others. We often forget about ourselves and are put last on the priority list. We know that many people push through pain to make sure they fulfil their responsibilities. They complain and are not experiencing a good quality of life. Remedial Massage can help address the pain and improve their mood as the pain eases. Give the gift of Self Care with a Massage Gift Voucher.  Someone Who Deserves Your Thanks Are you looking for that perfect gift to say thank you to those that do so much for you? It can be difficult to purchase clothing as it may not fit. Or jewellery as you don’t know their style or size. With Massage it is a versatile tool that can be modified to the individual receiving this gift. If they need relaxation, the massage can be calm and relaxing. If they need a good working over, deep tissue massage can be applied. It’s a way to say thanks by helping them care for their health and their body. All you need to do is purchase the Gift Voucher and they can decide upon booking what they need. It’s the perfect way to say thank you. If you know someone who deserves a Remedial Massage Gift Voucher this Christmas, Contact Us today to make your purchase. Phone | 02 8964 1673 or 0414 990 335Purchase Online | www.evolutionhealthservices.com.au/gift-vouchersVisit Us | Suite 3, 150 Lindesay Street CampbelltownWith onsite parking and away from the Campbelltown CBD, you can avoid the crowds this Christmas. We hope you enjoy your Christmas and find that special someone the perfect Gift.
