If you’re looking for gift ideas for those you care about, here are a few suggestions. Since I am a licensed massage therapist, that’s where I’ll start.
Although there are a few people around who don’t like to be touched, most people enjoy a professional massage that’s tailored for their needs: the right modality, the right pressure, the right length. One thing people say they’d do if they had unlimited resources is to get massages more often.
Massage gift certificates are welcome gifts, especially with a personal note from you letting them know how much they deserve to be pampered. If the recipient is a busy person, adding the promise of watching the kids or making dinner afterwards so they can enjoy the afterglow is an extra nice touch.
You could also give a loved one a massage table if there’s room to set it up in their home and they would enjoy (and can afford) a massage therapist coming to them. You may not need a professional quality table if they will be using it just once or twice a month. You can get a table inexpensively on Amazon, at Costco, or used on Craigslist, but make sure the table you get is rated to hold the weight of the person who will be receiving massages.
