As a mom of four girls, I don’t get much time to practice self care and wellness, so I welcome opportunities to indulge in quality “me time.” One indulgence is Soothe on-demand massage, which makes a great Mother’s Day gift for any busy mom looking to relax without having to go to a spa.

it increases blood circulation which can increase your energy and focus, while at the same time promoting relaxation;
and, if you suffer from depression or anxiety, massage therapy may help alleviate these symptoms, according to studies
