‘A Very Merry Atlanta Christmas’ Part 5 – What better gift than a massage?

See also

Continuing with ideas to give great and welcomed gifts and at the same time keeping Atlanta’s money in Atlanta, what could be better after the grueling holidays than the gift of a massage?

With the influx of so many cheaply Asian-made products, many of our jobs have been lost to these foreign countries.

Why not think about giving great unusual gifts; and at the same time help your neighbors stay in business; and help the metro-Atlanta economy.

A LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist) can do a lot more than just relax tired sore muscles. There are benefits in a total body massage that can help with pain in the muscles and stress related pain throughout the body.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics describes a LMT as:

“Massage therapy is the practice of using touch to manipulate the soft-tissue muscles of the body. It is performed for a variety of reasons, including treating painful ailments, decompressing tired and overworked muscles, reducing stress, rehabilitating sports injuries, and promoting general health. Clients often seek massage for its medical benefit and for relaxation purposes, and there is a wide range of massage treatments available.”

Karen Hall, LMT, works out of the offices of AIM, Alpha Internal Medicine, here in Fayette County which is just south of Atlanta, Georgia. She is available by appointment. You can reach her by calling 770-235-5684.

Among the doctors at AIM is Dr. Betsy Horton who is also one of the founders of the Fayette Care Clinic – a medical facility that operates to help those who are ill; but have no insurance. http://www.fayettecareclinic.com/

Throughout the month of December AIM will be collecting donated coats to be given to the Salvation Army for those who are in need of a good warm coat. Clean, gently used coats, may be dropped off at the office 745 S. Glenn Street in Fayetteville – next to the Kroger Store at Hwy 85 and Hwy 92 in south Fayetteville.
