LIFE LIST: GET A SWEDISH MASSAGE
When: January 15, 2013
Cost: I used a gift certificate I got for my birthday from my husband (back in June!) $50-$100
Why this is on my list? I LOVE a massage and I like to try all different types, I usually go for the deep tissue which really doesn't feel all that good but is supposed to have lasting results. Right now my back is killing me so I just wanted it to feel totally soothing!
Will I do it again? Well, I was actually a little upset with Massage Heights and swore I would not return to them after I used up this gift certificate but it ended up being the BEST massage I've ever had! I use to get them pretty consistently at a number of different places and I even had one massage that still leaves me to think that I must have been on a hidden camera show. Seeings how this was the best massage I've had in my 11 years experience of being rubbed down I have to say they won me over, I will return-even though I think they're overpriced and I was more than unimpressed with the sign posted at the front desk about gratuities. A sign which I scoffed at when I walked in- I really don't like being asked for tips...but as I said this kid deserved it so I happily relented.
Last year when I had my hot stone massage I wound up in the hospital the next day with vertigo so I was a little leery to be massaged again.
Something I would recommend? Yes, it was wonderful! This was also my first time being massage by a male and I have to say even though it was a little awkward (as I've been married for 8 years now) to be almost nude in a room with a strange man. Though I have to say-I think I prefer it-men do not talk as much and I think because of the male/female dynamic he was exceptionally professional.
Was it life changing? I guess I learned that there's something to be said for giving someone a second chance.
