CINCINNATI - If there's someone in your life that is is looking to improve their health and the quality of their life?
Wellness expert Mary Beth Knight has some healthy, holiday gift suggestions for you.
"Helping someone you love get rid of nagging pain might just be one of the best gifts ever given, and received," says Knight.
With more than 80 percent of all people experiencing back or neck pain in their lifetime chances are more than one person on your holiday list would like to eliminate back or neck pain and all of them would most likely wish to avoid it, which is why Knight recommends the Backjoy Posture . It can help correct your posture while engaging the core muscles. The Backjoy Posture retails for $39.99.
"The phrase 'I need to do yoga' is probably one of the most repeated statements today," says Knight, "so why not encourage this healthy habit by loading up your loved one with yoga gear?"
"Lululemon's The Mat is the ultimate in yoga mats and works for every type of yoga, including the ever popular hot yoga variety. The Mat retails for $68.00."
Those attending hot yoga may need a little stocking stuffer as well, throw in The Towel, a microfiber, quick drying towel and your loved one will have fewer excuses for not heading out the door to flush toxins, relieve stress and improve function head to toe.
Have a runner or walker on your list?
Knight suggests heading to your local running/walking shop and pick up a pair of compression socks. Compression socks can help to speed recovery, reduce fatigue and prevent blisters.
