Stress can ruin your holidays and hurt your health. The holidays come with a never ending list of demands - shopping, decorating, parties, family visits, cooking, baking, cleaning - just to name a few. Add to that a packed schedule with extra activities, more responsibilities and higher expectations and you have a recipe for fatigue, frustration and stress. This year can be different, though, if you try a combination of cutting back on activities, taking shortcuts and adjusting your own expectations. So with a few practical tips, you may be able to minimize the stress that accompanies this holiday season and actually enjoy yourself to the fullest without maxing out your energy, schedule and credit cards.
Think about what has made this season so stressful in the past and make a plan this year. You can make specific plans to better handle these situations so that you'll be less stressed when you face them this time around.
You can say no and cut out unnecessary activities. Really enjoying the things that you do end up doing is what will make the holiday something you'll want to remember and help to reduce your stress.
Everyone has certain expectations about what makes this season special. The good thing is that most of the activities we associate with this time of year are fun. However, it's easy to become so overwhelmed by all this activity that we become too busy to actually enjoy what we're doing. For those activities that are important enough that you'd really miss them if you didn't include them in your celebrations - cards, baking, wrapping, decorating, entertaining - there are ways to cut corners or otherwise simplify the experience without sacrificing what makes these activities fun. Simplifying frees up your energy so you can do more, or enjoy more of what you're doing.
Taking care of yourself is crucial to avoid stress. Be sure to make the time to eat a healthy diet, keep regular sleeping hours and continue to exercise; because these are all strategies for committing to better physical health and well-being. If you don't take care of yourself, how will you manage to take care of anything else?
In an effort to reduce your stress during the holiday season, Absolute Body Balance Massage offers one hour massage gift certificates for a special price of only $55. Gift giving made easy and affordable!! Call 919-841-9344 or visit www.absoluitebodybalance.com to purchase yours. Enjoy the Holiday Season!!

A gift of massage keeps on giving and it is awesome to see the look on someone's face or to hear the joy in their voice when they say thank you for a gift they may not have given themselves! Our Christmas Gift Certificates are valid through June of 2018, but it seems like most can't wait to call and get their one hour massage scheduled. Giving the gift of massage is one way to give a big hug from across the miles, or a reminder to take that time that we forget is so important for ourselves!
Our licensed massage therapists are exceptional in deep tissue techniques as well as Medical, Swedish, Sports and Prenatal massage. Each hour massage is a FULL sixty minutes on the table and is unique for each client because there is no choreographed routine, it is improvised based on the individual and his or her needs.
But don't listen to us; ask your friends where they go for a great massage, or read our reviews online before you call. Now you're thinking that maybe you will add one last item to your Christmas list... 919-841-9344 for the office, and please leave us a message, we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Simply put, it is a technique developed nearly a century ago in Denmark by Dr.'s Emil and Estrid Vodder. Whereas most massage techniques compress and manipulate the muscles, fascia, and other soft tissues, MLD can be described as a very gentle stretching of the skin, designed to speed up the movement of lymph in the body. This increases the number of leukocytes produced by one's lymph nodes and assists in flushing toxins and other cellular debris from the body. MLD has been reported to alleviate symptoms for a number of conditions, such as chronic edema, fatigue from various immune disorders, improving appearance of skin conditions, speeding up recovery from surgery, etc. To learn more about MLD, feel free to check out the Institute on MLD at www.mldinstitute.com and research Dr. Vodder's Manual Lymph Drainage technique. The compendium written by Renato Kasseroller is another very valuable resource regarding this issue.
Absolute Body Balance has several massage therapists experienced in Manual Lymph Drainage Massage. New clients receive a discount for their first one hour massage at $55. Office hours are Monday thru Friday from 9am to 7pm and Saturdays 9am to 4pm, by appointment only. Please feel free to call 919-841-9344 or visit the website www.absolutebodybalance.com for more information or to contact for an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!Manual Lymph Drainage Massage
