It's that time of year again where your HSA / Flex savings cards may run out or be eligible for rollover depending on your particular plan by December 31, 2018.
Many of our clients have been using their HSA / Flex Savings cards to pay for their massage therapy service for years. If you or your loved ones have a HSA / Flex savings card, you may use them to purchase gift cards and packages to use during 2019! Some cards need to be processed as debit, so if purchasing in office, please have your PIN ready.
**Currently, we do not accept traditional health insurance such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Medicaid, etc., but your HSA / Flex card will cover massage therapy!**
Many times, clients who recognize the restorative and pain relieving benefits of massage have a difficult time budgeting in order to get massage frequently enough to maintain their bodies and make improvement on their stress & muscle pain.. so, we try to make it as easy as possible to fit self-care into your budget!
Just want a gift card? Those are 10% off!
Unfortunately, our phone lines are down & we cannot accept incoming calls or place outgoing calls. Our WiFi function still works & can accept iMessage from iPhones & iPads. Non-iPhone users must use email. Email will be our main form of communication until this issue is resolved.
Confirmations & reminders that typically come from our booking system will come from our google mail account.
Thanks for your patience!
Everyone is getting sick and passing it around. So please, if you do get sick, PLEASE reschedule your appointment as soon as you feel symptoms! Getting a massage while sick is no good for either you or your Therapist, and can even make you worse off than just feeling symptoms.
While Massage & Reiki are great immune boosters, our germs are invisible and travel through the air. It’s almost guaranteed you’ll pass on whatever it is you have to whomever is physically working on your body. It’s not fair to take that risk, to you or your Therapist. Get yourself better first, because odds are a good amount of your soreness and aches are from the sickness manifesting itself in your body.
Yes, 2018 was quite the whirlwind. For many of us. We wanted to say thank you to the world’s best clients (that’s you!) for sticking by Seraphim even in its darkest day when we didn’t have a space to practice in, to what seems like the longest month ever when both my fiancé & I got sick and it was as if the plague hit our home!
My question to you is:
When has standing in line for hours in the freezing cold for a TV or Blu-Ray player did anything good for your mental, physical, emotional & spiritual health? It’s self-care season people. It’s about time you boosted your immune system & relieved some of those nasty aches & pains with an appointment (or series of appointments!) with us. With our Black Friday specials that run through Cyber Monday, it’s impossible to not get the best deal.
Why Sundasport? (Aside from the fact that it’s a local business - #ShopSmall #ShopLocal)
I was born with a non-congenital bone defect (and apparently my grandmother’s feet 🙄) so a lot of the times with exercise, my feet HURT. It’s honestly amazing how I’ve been a full time Massage Therapist for 11 years & my feet have held up. I know just how important self care is, and fitness is a big part of that. One of the things I try to instill in my clients is muscles are like dogs, they only know what you teach them.
I’ve never really enjoyed working out.
🧘♂️ Yoga, sure.
Elliptical machine? I love them..but hate the limitations. I can only do that one movement for so long before I’m bored.
🏃♀️Running? Never been my thing, as its high impact on the whole body & my feet hurt.
So it’s frustrating trying to find something
that’s affordable ✅
Another reason I love Sundasport is Ryan will modify the workouts to make it so I’m comfortable with the movements & still achieve the same great workout I showed up for.
I have fun 🙌, I feel great🤩 (though I make angry faces at him or the workout itself halfway through😳😡🤬😭) and every session I walk away feeling better than when I walked in. And my feet don’t kill me afterwards!😬
Check this place out! Your first class is free, and the monthly unlimited is increasing soon. Get your ish together & join now!!
Tell him Jamie at Seraphim sent you!
People can be hard to shop for. You want to give gifts that people will use & enjoy, but sometimes gifts just get put back into the boxes they came in and don’t surface again for a while. Life just gets in the way, and we get it. Who can really keep up with all the multi-tasking the day calls for, much less find yet another home for another nick-nack and remember to dust it every so often.
Multi-session packages purchased here never expire, and for a limited time, EACH session comes with a free enhancement. Investing in a membership for yourself (or a loved one) comes with free additional session time you can use whenever you like.
These gifts are no brainers, and the savings won’t last long. Come see our new space (only 2 blocks from our old space) and enjoy feeling your body again!
Moving is stressful. For many people, the stress starts when they start packing up their belongings to stage and show their home. Then, finding a new home while attempting to sell the old one, trying to coordinate move-out and move-in dates, can add pressure. Physically moving into the new home is another stress factor that just compounds the situation’s difficulty, which doesn’t resolve until after the homeowner’s made the down payment, paid his or her Pennsylvania realtor and lawyer, and gotten settled into his or her new home.
After all that, any homeowner needs some self care. Spa days and massages are a very popular form of self care for homeowners and others looking to relieve their stress. Take some time to educate yourself about the benefits of getting a massage, then find a massage therapist near you.
Getting a Massage can Soothe your Tired Muscles
Massage’s primary benefit is soothing your tired, sore muscles. After long days hauling heavy boxes and furniture into your new home, you’ll probably have some muscle soreness and pain. Instead of wallowing in the pain and waiting for it to pass, have it massaged away by a professional massage therapist. Choose a Swedish massage for your muscle recovery because this type of massage stimulates blood circulation, which brings oxygen to your sore spots.
Massage’s Overall Health Benefits
Each type of massage has specific benefits. If you are looking for more targeted relief than a full body Swedish massage, talk to your massage therapist about the services he or she offers.
There are certain health benefits that every kind of massage provides, though. They include:
● Improved immune system function;
● Improved blood circulation;
● Better sleep;
● Muscle and joint relief;
● Headache reduction;
● Increased energy levels;
● Pain relief;
● Reduced blood pressure;
● Enhanced mood; and
● Improved flexibility.
When you receive massages regularly, the benefits compound and improve your overall health. You might find yourself becoming ill less often or becoming more physically fit after you add massage therapy to your healthy living regimen. Consider opening an account at a local massage therapy studio. At many massage studios, subscribed guests receive a specific number of massages each month.
Massage for Stress Relief
Getting a massage has plenty of health benefits, and these physical health benefits translate directly to mental health benefits. Simply being in a massage room with its low lighting and aromatherapy will reduce your stress level, and when the massage therapist works out your knots and tight muscles, you’ll feel tension you might not even realize you carried melt away.
Beyond boosting your mood by making you feel relaxed, massage therapy can ease your anxiety and help to resolve your insomnia. It cannot replace medical treatment, though. If you suffer from a diagnosed disorder, continue following your doctor’s treatment instructions. A massage can be a great complement to your prescribed medical treatment, but it cannot render it unnecessary.

We’re so thrilled to announce our new location in Center City! We even have a new location celebration sale going on!
Were at 1500 Chestnut St. In the beautifully maintained Ellington Building, and we’re on the lower level sharing space with the Philly School of Massage, who also offers Reiki classes now! Such a calming place clients are already loving. I’m so grateful to have found this & grateful to my amazing clients for suggesting I inquire there. Thank you again for helping Seraphim find its new city home ❤️
