Today is Small Business Saturday around the country, and for many people, it marks the beginning of their holiday shopping trips (or else their recovery from Black Friday shopping). They start looking for those perfect presents for everyone on their lists, but if they head to their local mall, they have to find parking, stand in line to check out, and perhaps even run to get that last toy on the shelf. Holiday shopping can be fun, but it can also take a physical and emotional toll on a person. At The World’s Best Massage Chairs (WBMC), we believe that sitting in a luxury massage chair is one of the best ways to deal with the stress that can come after holiday shopping!
The Physical Toll
When you set out to buy holiday gifts, you have to be ready to walk and stand for long periods of time. You have to walk the aisles of those big box stores to find every present on your list, and you have to stand in line to check out once everything is in your cart. Some of those stores can be very big, and if you’re Holiday shopping at the mall, you may have to walk from one end to the other to visit a specialty store that is the only place you can get a specific gift. By the time you get everything on your list and walk back to your car in the parking garage, your legs hurt, your arms are tired, and you’re ready to sit down for a few hours.
With a massage chair, you can soothe away the pain from walking and standing all day. You’ll feel your shoulders and back relax as the chair’s programmed functions knead your muscles and work out the kinks that came as a result of carrying heavy packages from the department store to your car at the very end of the parking lot.
The Emotional Toll
While you may not experience a lot of physical discomfort following a holiday shopping trip, you may come back feeling emotionally drained. Visiting a department store or the mall during this time of year can be stressful for a number of reasons, and a few of them can make you not want to go back until next year. There are usually large numbers of people in every store, and you have to deal with people pushing past you to get to that toy or gadget before you do. There are kids constantly asking their parents for a specific toy, and if you take your little ones with you, you know how quickly you can run out of patience.
If you come back from the mall with a stress headache, or you’re simply feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of people you had to maneuver around during the day, a massage can be a wonderful remedy. Sitting in your chair for half an hour can ease away your stress and help you feel more relaxed before you begin wrapping those presents and making holiday treats for the family.
