Mother’s Day is coming up quick and if you haven’t found the perfect gift as yet, then Sport & Spinal Physiotherapy have a few unique gift ideas for you to consider.
1. Massage Gift Certificates
Everyone loves a relaxing massage and the health benefits are numerous. However, we tend to put off doing those things that can be so beneficial for us. In fact, stress reduction and relaxation are essential facets to maintaining a healthy and long life and this is where massage can help by;
- reducing muscle tension and improving your circulation
- reducing stress hormones, anxiety and depression
- increasing joint mobility and flexibility
We currently have a wonderful offer for all Mums on Mother’s Day. Mum can enjoy a wonderful 60 minute massage and only pay for a 30 minute massage.
2. A Term of Pilates Classes
Pilates is a great way to improve flexibility and strengthen muscles. Our approach to Pilates is unlike your Pilates often seen at the local gym or Pilates studio. In a Clinical Pilates class the physiotherapist will be able to take into account an individual’s specific needs. Our approach to clinical Pilates is based on the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute (AAPI) method through which our Pilates Physiotherapists hold certification.
3. Gym Membership
Exercising in a gym is not all about losing weight and gaining muscle. Regular exercise is great for our brains too. Research suggests that exercise has many can be beneficial in improving memory, brain function and inhibiting disease. Exercise has also been found to help reducing stress, anxiety and depression.
At Sport & Spinal Physiotherapy, we have a fully equipped Gym at both of our clinics. There is also the added reassurance that should any problems arise, a physiotherapist is always at hand to help. You can purchase a 10 or 20 visit gym pass for your mum or even a 6 or 12 month membership. We are also offering a FREE one month Gym pass to visit our state-of-the-art gym in the city.
- 6 month gym memberships include a FREE 30min massage
- 12 month gym memberships include a FREE 60min massage
- Get an extra 1 month FREE when you join up with a friend for 6 and 12 month memberships
4. Foam Rollers
We have covered the benefits and types of Foam Rollers previously. They are great way to “roll out” any injuries or sore spots as well as improving flexibility.
Foam rolling is a form of self-myofascial release. Research shows that using foam rollers can help in improving your flexibility without impairing muscular performance. The stretch shown above is one of my favourite exercises that I give to clients.
5. Yoga/Pilates Mats
You have to try one of our fantastic yoga/pilates mats! Non-slip, soft, 15mm thick mats for that extra comfort.
Try giving the gift of health and wellness this Mother’s Day. Your mum will really thank you for it.
