The festive season is upon us and we are all excited to see what delicious treats family and friends will be bringing along when they come to visit. Tasty treats like cold ham and turkey, delicious barbecues, potato bake, trifle, Christmas pudding, and pavlova are only a few of the many treats to look forward to this Christmas.
This is the one season when it is perfectly fine to go a little overboard in terms of unhealthy eating. But it is still a good idea to try to balance things out a bit with a healthy and natural Chinese medicine gift. Here is a quick look at healthy natural gifts everyone in your family will truly love.
An Acupuncture Voucher
Since an acupuncture session is probably the best gift in the world, we are going to list this one right at the top. This type of treatment is suitable for adults of all ages but it is especially good for those who suffer from chronic pain like joint pain, muscle pain, back pain, headaches, migraines, or other health issues.
Acupuncture sessions are extremely relaxing. The sessions instantly whisk away muscle tension and reduce stress dramatically. The relaxing sessions aren’t just soothing though. Acupuncture stimulates internal healing and can help people heal from and overcome medical issues that are causing their pain.
A Remedial Massage Voucher
Remedial massages are just as soothing as acupuncture if not more so. These sessions are aimed to treat muscles that are injured, damaged; tense, knotted, or that have become immobile. Remedial massages are perfect for family members that struggle a lot with stress and anxiety but it can also be useful for treating other medical conditions.
A Voucher for an Essential Oil Massage
Essential oil massages are also called aromatherapy massages. These massages involve incorporating specific essential oils into the massage to promote relaxation and healing. Essential oil blends like lavender or jasmine are often used because these have a calming effect on the mind while a combination of hard acupressure and soft massages are combined to unwind muscles and ease tension.
A Chinese Herbal Medicine Starter Pack
Family members who want to give Chinese medicine a try but never had the opportunity to do so would love an herbal medicine kit. Ask a TCM practitioner to compose a series of herbal treatments for common medical conditions like the cold and flu virus, a tummy bug, or something for headaches. Remember to label everything clearly with proper instructions as to how to use these herbal treatments like herbal tablets or capsules so the medication can be taken for the correct condition and in the correct dosage.
A Steam Diffuser with Essential Oils
Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment that can naturally promote your well-being. The process essentially involves adding a few drops of essential oils to a steam diffuser. The diffuser will transform the oil into microscopic particles that can be inhaled.
Aromatherapy combined with hypnotherapy or meditation can do wonders for your mental and physical health and it is great fun to sample different essential oil fragrances.
A Herb Garden Starter Pack
Naturalists, cooks, and those who prefer holistic treatments love herb gardens. It is a lot of fun to grow your own herbs and it is even more fun to pick these fresh herbs so you can whip up tasty meals or make home-brewed teas.
Family members who love plants and nature will adore a herb garden starter kit with various herb types like sweet rocket, coriander, basil, or rosemary, especially if you include a growing tray and a couple of garden tools with the kit.
We are sure that most people in your family would love to receive any of these gifts. But if you are not 100% sure about the right holistic gift to offer then you can always give Evergreen CMC a call. A TCM practitioner will help you find out more about their herbal treatments, acupuncture, and massage services.
