    Holiday Stress? Relax At a Medical Spa!

    The Holidays are making me crazy!

    It might be “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” but there’s also a lot to do, especially if you have parties to plan, kids to shop for, and Secret Santas to remember.

    Holiday Spending in 2011 totaled $52 billion dollars.

    The average person spends $854 on Christmas gifts every December -- a 32% increase over 2011! Be sure to budget in a little stocking stuffer for yourself!
    - We spend an average of $403.26 on kids
    - We spend an average of 68.03 on friends
    - We spend an average of $21.06 on co-workers

    Before you reach for a bottle of eggnog to take the edge off, consider other ways to chill out!

    Beat Holiday Stress
    - Watch what you eat: Weight Watchers advises that you avoid your “trigger” foods - the ones that inspire overeating. Don’t gorge yourself!
    - Make a list: Grab one of the free holiday shopping apps to help keep an eye on what you spend. It prevents overspending!
    - Shop Online: In 2011, online shoppers spent $37.2 billion on holiday gifts. Save yourself some stress and avoid the mall!

    Still stressed? Join the 8,100 people who visit medical spas yearly to feel rejuvenated.

    - Choose a licensed doctor - Ask about his or her history and ask to see photos of past patients.
    - Ask about the treatments - All people may be affected differently by different treatments, so be sure to ask questions.
    - Ask about the equipment used - Do a bit of research before you go and make sure the medical spa has the equipment on hand that you want.
