Stress-Free Holiday Season Pt. 2

November 15, 2013

Did you miss Part 1? Click here to catch up on how to de-stress this holiday season!

For some of us, the most wonderful time of the year is the most stressful time of the year!

We oftentimes find ourselves frazzled by the quintessential endless holiday to do list; finding perfect presents, family travel, hosting celebrations, preparing holiday dinners, decorating the house, sending out holiday cards and on and on!

Thinking about the hectic holiday season ahead, I couldn’t help but wonder how to survive the season, sans the stress.

To guide me on my path, I enlisted help from the most Zen and centered people I know, Holistic Health Coaches and spa experts from Spa Gregorie’s – Amanda Manwaring, Spa Manager and Aromatherapist and Dana Conley, Massage Therapist.

Over a cup of herbal tea, I found out everything I needed to know. This time we talked about incorporating massage into your life.



Treating yourself to a massage may seem like an indulgence, but Dana and Amanda insist that receiving a massage is becoming a necessity.

And Spa Gregorie’s is the ultimate whole body wellness destination for anyone who wants to retreat and replenish. The happy team at Spa Gregorie’s will make you feel right at home while providing unbeatable dedication and care on the deepest level.

With the holidays coming up, why not treat yourself to a present?

Massage is the gift that keeps on giving, “when our clients walk out of the room after an hour long massage” Dana says, “they feel like a new person.”

And there are numerous mind and body benefits to achieve when including massage into your life. Dana tells me just some of the many benefits of massage:

  • Increased relaxation
  • Improve sleep
  • Increased sense of calm
  • Increased circulation
  • Increase flow of oxygen and nutrients to the body
  • Detoxification
  • Fights the “flight response”

Spa Gregorie’s has a full service spa massage menu, from Swedish massage and Ancient Bathing Ritual Service to Stone techniques and Lymphatic Massage, you will have massage options unlike any other spa.

Beyond the spa menu, Spa Gregorie’s have huge hearts too! They have an Oncology Services program, which gives relief to cancer patients going through exhausting treatments. Their Oncology trained therapists soothe painful side effects to improve quality of life.

Don’t forget to take care and nurture yourself this holiday season. Your body and mind will thank you for it.
