Give the Gift of Self Care This Holiday Season

The holiday shopping season has arrived. If you’re like many people, you need gift ideas for those on your holiday shopping list. At Radiant Wellness, we can help find the perfect gift that never goes out of style and has lifetime value, the gift of self-care!

In this article, we explore holiday gift options that improve quality of life! From eating healthy to managing stress, this gift guide will help you find the perfect gifts for those you care about.

Stress is All Around US!

The plague of stress is on everyone’s mind as we go about our daily lives. The world we live in presents us with a constant supply of stress. Stress finds us when there’s a mess in our personal lives. It also stalks us when we stumble upon the latest crisis on the evening news or on social media.

Research shows that stress can take a catastrophic toll on our mental health as well as our physical health. Decades worth of medically reviewed research point to the negative impact that stress has on our health. Stress impacts memory, brain function, and even the immune system. It comes as no surprise that stress also takes a toll on the quality of our relationships with friends and family.

Stress is also a factor that can negatively impact heart health. Johns Hopkins recently noted that work-related stress was found to increase the risk of heart disease by almost twenty percent.

We soon reach a point where we find ourselves stressing out over not stressing out. Thankfully, we have a number of tips to help you lower stress and improve your overall physical/mental health.

What Can I Do To Relieve Stress?

This is a question we get often at Radiant Wellness. Thankfully, we have solutions for you and those you love this holiday season!

Engaging in self care doesn’t have to be a complicated ordeal. Researchers from Cornell University found that spending time in nature can decrease the physical and mental effects of stress. Participants reported a reduction in stress levels after spending even as little as ten minutes in nature. If using spa services for self care is more your style, then we have a few recommendations for you!


One of the ancient self-care practices, yoga brings your focus to mind, body, and spirit. Yoga incorporates physical poses and movements making it an effective option for physical self care. Yoga also incorporates meditation, and deliberate, controlled breathing that refocuses our attention and “resets” our emotional well being. One study found significantly reduced stress levels among people who participated in a three-month yoga program.

At Radiant Wellness, we offer Vinyasa Yoga, Power Yoga, Thai Yoga Massage Treatment as well as Pilates!

Massage Therapy

Probably one of the most popular spa treatments, massage therapy comes in a number of different modalities depending on your health goals. At Radiant Wellness, we offer a number of massage therapy modalities including:

  • Swedish Massage
  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Fijian Barefoot Massage
  • Ashiatsu Massage


Much like massage therapy, facials are a service commonly available at your local health spa. Facials are not only good for stress reduction (let’s face it, who doesn’t love to be pampered) they are also effective for minimizing the toll that stress takes on our face. We offer a number of different skincare services that include:

  • Signature facials
  • Dermaplaning
  • Resurfacing
  • Chemical Peels

Stress is a part of everyday life, and probably always will be to some extent. Being able to manage stress is the key to adding years to your life and life to your years.

The holidays bring on an added layer of stress all their own. Coordinating holiday get togethers, buying all the gifts, and having to put up with inlaws can stress us to the maximum this time of year. The great news is it doesn’t have to be that way if you make self care a priority for you and for those on your holiday shopping list! Radiant Wellness makes it easy to give the gift of health and well-being with gift certificates that make wonderful stocking stuffers.
