There are a number of health benefits of massage that can really help improve the lives of busy mom’s (and DADS)! Life is chaotic, especially around the holidays. We bake, we shop, we chaperone classroom parties. We work hard to pad the budget for Christmas gifts and then come home to cook dinner and supervise homework hour. When, in our busy schedule, do we take care of US? I don’t know about you, but I find that my own needs are pushed far down the list of things that get taken care of.
