Interesting comments, TRUEPEACENIK! The water-based Zen Shiatsu sounds amazing!
I finally had my first massage in the early part of this month (Feb. 8, to be exact :) It was a generous slice of heaven, and my muscles have never felt so warm, buttery, and relaxed, for want of more definitive adjectives.
Will definitely do this again! It is an investment in one's well-being.
I trade Thai and Shiatsu, mostly, but I did have one friend who wanted cranio sacral.
I'm starting my hours for Watsu, water-based Zen Shiatsu, and love trading with my mentor. I'm lucky he has no training in Thai and loves it.
For those who have never had a massage, have you also gone without medical and dental care? Regular massage is an investment in your future health with immediate benefits as well. Can you say that about most preventative health care?
Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.
This choice in this moment defines now.
What is your now?

That's what I need...a massage ! Love massages....Swedish kind with aromatherapy and hot stones too ! WOO HOO There's different kinds of massages...My fav Swedish, Deep Tissue,Sports Massage,Trigger Point Massage... swedish is gentle pressing,rubbing....Deep Tissue is slower, more forceful strokes and manipulation of the skin...I don't like :( Trigger Point focuses on tight,sore muscles and sensitive areas Sports is similar to Swedish.... There's soooo many good health benefits too...helps relieve stress,anxiety, helps ease depression,boosts immunity,helps control blood pressure,relieves stiff and sore muscles.. is sooooooo relaxing, calming, and yet afterwards feel more energized and alive ! Depending on where you go and what type of massage...it can cost up to $75 to $160 depending on if you have extras like Hot Stones, Aromatherapy... It's been awhile since I had one...I am soooo getting one soon ! WOO HOO
Every day in every way....I get..better..and better Woo Hoo !
I've never had a massage. I think I would feel kinda weird about it, I'm one of those strange people who doesn't like people to touch me. Infact, I'm actually, a little uncomfortable about people hugging me! So, I don't think I will be getting a massage anytime soon, lol.
