Mother’s Day-Massage away stress of motherhood

Mothers Day-Massage away stress of motherhood

By Martina Treviño/nw news editor

Mother’s Day
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you may be searching for a way to show mom how much you appreciate her.

Don’t know what to do? Don’t want to make the same mistakes as last year?

Here are ideas to get you started!

Really want to rub mom the right way? Treat her to a professional massage by an experienced, licensed massage therapist.

Frank Stockton, owner of Massage Envy, 3000 S. Hulen St. in Fort Worth, said a massage is a good gift because “it offers a relaxing, therapeutic treatment for people who are over-stressed and take no time out for themselves, and it gives them an opportunity to get away.”

The company brochure lists improvement of posture and circulation, stress relief, relaxation, pain management and easier breathing as benefits of massage therapy.

So how much will this cost?

A gift certificate for one-hour at Massage Envy is only $49 (this does not include a suggested $10-$20 gratuity). The company offers a membership plan for $49 monthly that enables you to purchase gift certificates for $39.

And Mom does not have to live in Fort Worth or even in Texas to receive this gift. The fast-growing franchise operation has 552 clinics in 45 states.

Stockton plans to open an Arlington location at Matlock and I-20 in June. Stockton’s massage clinic offers convenient, professional, massages at affordable prices.

The clinics hours are set for people with busy schedules. Massage Envy is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-10 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and walk-in appointments are welcome, Stockton said.
