HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – Dec. 8, 2009 – December is National Stress-Free Family Holiday Month, and to help ease gift-giving stress, elements therapeutic massage is offering massage gift cards online as a way to reduce stress for both the gift-giver and the recipient.
“The Holidays, while a time of joy and peace, often bring increased stress and anxiety from buying gifts, attending parties and entertaining guests,” said Kyle Gjersee, senior vice president and chief operating officer of elements therapeutic massage, inc. “To help lower stress for everyone, we launched our new online massage gift card
program, avoiding grueling shopping trips and crowded malls.”
The timing is perfect as online holiday shopping is on the rise. Cyber Monday (Nov. 30) online sales rose almost 14 percent and the average amount spent by consumers was up almost 40 percent from 2008 according to Coremetrics
, a company that measures online marketing results.
“Not only does a therapeutic massage make a great gift, but buyers can also purchase one for themselves at the same time,” said Gjersee, who pointed out that About.com lists a massage among quick tips for stress-reduction in the Web site’s “Holiday Stress Survival Kit.”
elements therapeutic massage gift cards are available for purchase online at https://corp.touchofelements.com/massage-gift-cards/
and each card is customizable with a personal message to the recipient and can be used in any elements therapeutic massage studio nationwide.
