Father's DayGive dad the break he deserves with a gift card for a therapeutic massage or facial

San Antonio, Texas — Dad worked long hours, taught you to play catch, took you on your first fishing trip and spent hours helping with homework. He’s always taking care of everyone else, so this Father’s Day take care of him with a gift card for a therapeutic massage or facial from Massage Heights, a professional, affordable and convenient therapeutic massage and facial service.

You think of dad as tough and hardworking but there are times when he just needs a break — a break he won’t give himself but that is essential to giving his body and mind a reprieve from the stresses of everyday life.

“Sometimes dad’s nerves of steel need to rest and recover,” said Daniel Jaramillo, LMT and director of industry relations for Massage Heights. “The nervous system is very complex, as sensory impulses are received internally through organs or externally through the five senses, specifically touch. These impulses are sent back to the brain; then the body’s reaction back to the organs, glands, and muscles.”

“The nervous system controls both the hormonal glands and the nerve network, so we must maintain it,” he continued. “Your body’s command central station is affected through massage therapy, and that’s powerful medicine!”

Continuing research supports the benefits of regular therapeutic massage which, when incorporated into an overall health regimen, can help achieve balance.

Not unlike massage therapy, skin therapy offers a variety of health benefits.

“Don’t let dad forget about the health of his skin this Father’s Day!” said Katherine Palmer, LST/Licensed Instructor, skin therapy operations specialist for Massage Heights. “Buy him a gift card for an introductory facial. Healthy on the outside is healthy on the inside.”

Also, at participating nationwide Retreat locations you can purchase three gift cards and get one free (minimum purchase of three $50 gift cards to receive special offer; prices may vary per region, see Retreat for details.), good for therapeutic services, memberships and all-natural products.
