Here’s the truth: it’s difficult to buy gifts for most people. Especially when those people mean a lot to you. Whether it’s for the person you do life with, a celebration with your gal pals or even a present for your parents, it’s hard to find the right Valentine’s Day gift. After all, it’s the season of love…but how do you *tangibly* show your love?
At the end of the day, it’s all about how much that person(s) means to you more so than the present you buy for them. However, with about 50% of Americans celebrating the holiday and an average of $160 being spent, (by the way, men spend twice as much as women on average…) we all know that there’s a lot of pressure put on February 14th.
Yes, of course we’re tying it back to massages. But scientifically, the *best* Valentine’s Day gift is a couples massage. And guess who offers those? That’s right – Pure Spa & Wellness. Let us explain.
We all know that massages release the feel-good hormone, otherwise known as oxytocin. That’s why we keep on coming back – because it feels good. This feel-good hormone is also referred to as the “love hormone” which creates a feeling of social bonding. Even further, massages increase your serotonin and dopamine production, leaving you with a feeling of happiness and rejuvenation at the end of your session.
No, we’re not telling you to ditch the dozen roses or fancy chocolate boxes. But imagine you and your Valentine/Galentine’s Day partner relaxing on adjacent massage tables in a room of light and airy essential oils, calm music and chocolate with wine to finish your massage therapy session. That’s the gift of an experience you *both* can enjoy, whether it’s at the beginning or end of your celebrations.
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be stressful. Plus, you get a gift for yourself too in the meantime. You know who to call for our Couples Romance Packages and Valentine’s Day Menu openings. We hope to celebrate the lovely holiday with you!
