The holiday season is all about giving, and the BuffEnuff Power Massager is the perfect holiday gift they’ll really love for helping them still chill during the holidays and beyond!
People turn to massage for many reasons during the holidays; for stress relief, pain relief, rejuvenation, and relaxation, and massage is a great gift for just about anyone—from healthy seniors and adults and pregnant women to athletes and fitness enthusiasts. Massage therapy is also safe, beneficial, and therapeutic for people living with chronic conditions, including parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia and arthritis.
Regular massage clients will know what to look forward to, and for someone who has never had a massage, (is it possible?!), a handheld BuffEnuff Power Massager can make daily massage care more accessible.
Here are four reasons why a BuffEnuff Power Massager should be at the top of your holiday gift list, plus pro tips for staying chill during the holiday season.
Share the Gift of Stress Relief
The holidays can be filled with family, good friends, fun, and great food —and frenetic holiday parties. The hustle and bustle of searching for the illusive perfect holiday gift, overindulging and traveling can leave any merrymaker feeling exhausted and stressed. Massage makes the best holiday gift because it calms the nervous system, eases everyday aches and pains, and provides healing therapeutic massage therapy and recovery when they need it most, during the holiday frenzy!
The Healing Power of Pain Relief
From decorating the Christmas tree to digging the Hanukkah candles out of the basement, holiday decorating activities can lead to strains, sprains and pains. Percussive massage makes the best holiday gift because it addresses pain and stiffness by increasing circulation, improving flexibility, and treating trigger points and tight knots in muscles.
The Gift of Good Cheer
Whether you love or hate the holidays, it’s easy to fall prey to the myriad of holiday stressors.
Let’s face it. The holidays aren’t always jolly for everyone; they can be a trigger fest filled with family conflicts, feelings of grief, fear of disappointing others, financial hardships, dealing with nosy questions from well-meaning relatives, and other mood-stressors can arise, even in the midst of a holiday party. Massage makes the best holiday gift because it can boost mood. The release of the feel-good hormone, oxytocin, is increased during massage, as is the release of serotonin and dopamine.
Statistics tell a similar story. Emerging research indicates up to 64% of people say their stress levels increase exponentially during the holiday season. The holidays can feel overwhelming on mind, body, and spirit; and at a time when more self-care is needed, schedules simply may not allow for massage appointment.
And yet this is exactly why the holidays are actually the perfect time to practice self care, making the BuffEnuff Power Massager the perfect holiday gift!
The Gift of Ease
Give yourself the gift of a super-simple gift idea. The BuffEnuff Power Massager makes the best holiday gift ever! Your gift of massage will be the easiest gift you give this holiday season—and one of the most appreciated.
Whether it’s the mom who needs pampering, the dad who has everything, or the bestie who loves to work out, virtually anyone on your list will appreciate the gift of daily percussive massage therapy this holiday season.
Pro Tips for Staying Chill During the Holidays
Feeling overwhelmed this time of year? You're not alone. Try these simple tips for beating holiday stress.
Laugh it off. Yes, the holidays can be stressful and triggering, but what if we tried not to take it all so seriously? We can all use a good laugh now and then and during the holidays, it has been scientifically proven to help you manage stress levels and leave you feeling more relaxed. You’ll get an immediate endorphin release, in addition to some awesome long-term health benefits such as greater immunity (hello, flu season!) and overall mood. So check out that local improv show you’ve been putting off seeing, pick out a good comedy movie, or simply hang out with good friends who make you laugh.
Identify your triggers. The holidays are a great time to break out that journal. Try to become more aware of your stressors by taking time to reflect on them. If you’re more aware of what stresses you out in the first place, you can pause and take action before the triggers take over.
Get moving. Oftentimes the anticipation of stress is worse than the actual stress itself. If you’re already worried about the holidays, chances are you’ve created patterns of stress in your nervous system, making you more reactive and tense. Forget about waiting until January to start that new fitness routine—get moving now! Take a walk, go dancing, hit the gym, get to your favorite yin yoga class. Exercise helps relieve tension in the body, which in turn improves your overall stress response. Whatever you do, just get up and allow that stress to release in your mind and body.
Get your ZZZs. Sleeping for 7 to 9 hours a night has been scientifically shown to help improve your mood and even help maintain your weight. When you are well rested, you’re more likely to make better food choices. In fact, science also has shown that when you’re sleep deprived, you tend to have higher levels of the appetite-stimulating hormone, ghrelin, likely leading to the temptation to a bout of the munchies. If you’re having trouble falling asleep, try to make your bedroom a few degrees cooler, turn off the electronics at least an hour before bed time.
Snack Smarter. Before grabbing that bag of chips, ask yourself if you’re really hungry or just feeling stressed. If the answer is the latter, keep yourself busy by calling a friend, tackling a project you’ve been putting off if you’re at work, or organizing a drawer if you’re home. If you’re not sure if it’s hunger pains or stress, drink a glass of water and keep stress relieving snacks on hand including almonds, baby carrots, or creamy greek yogurt and blueberries.
Step up your game. Whenever you can, get your steps in and keep track on your phone or pedometer. Take the stairs, walk further away at the mall, take a walk after dinner, or walk around the office while you’re on the phone. Aiming for 10,000 steps each day will help you destress and also help keep the dreaded extra holiday pounds from piling on.
Just Breathe. Hit your internal “pause button and take a few deep cleansing breaths. Think about a few things each day you’re grateful for along with a few things you’re proud of. You’ll instantly feel more positive and less stressed about day-to-day stressors that come your way.
All is CALM… There’s an APP for that! Download a free meditation app such as Calm, the #1 App for meditation and sleep, set a timer, or simply breathe deeply. We mentioned this tactic above and it’s worth mentioning again, because your breath is a veritable superpower, especially against stress. Breath allows you to pause, reflect, and respond, rather than react.
Plan a “me day.”
Whether you’re feeling whelmed with social obligations or feeling a bit lonely during the holiday season, having a plan in place for solo “me time” and pampering yourself can help lift your spirits. Perhaps your “you day” is filled with the gym, a mani/pedi, lunch with an old friend, or a movie you’re been aiming to see, whatever it is, put it on your calendar and make it a non-negotiable date just as you would with someone else you care about. Rest assured that you have something to look forward to, just for you!
