Mother's Day will be here shortly and businesses in Glen Cove are looking to help you make your mother feel special this holiday.
Gift of Pampering
In honor of Mother's Day, chiropractor and wellness consultant Dr. Maxine Cappel Mayreis is offering free 20 minute professional massages to all women this month.
"Mothers work so hard," Mayreis said. "They are often overworked and underpaid. They use and abuse their bodies. They often bear the stress of the whole family and this is our opportunity to help the deleterious effects on the body."
Mayreis is offering the massages out of her Brewster Street office and they will be completed by a professional massage therapist.
"Mom can have 20 minutes of her own," Mayreis said. "I want to honor mothers for all their devotion and service to families and for their hard work in raising successful children."
