YES!!!!
So glad you enjoyed it. Keep it up, benefits are cumulative.
For more info on Watsu, look it up on you tube. Many are not in English, but it isn't like there is conversation.

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?

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.

Another therapist happy to see post like this!

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?

Massage is good for managing chronic pain, too!

Try harder--in everything that you do!

DYET, that sounds like a (generous) slice o' heaven! I've never had a massage before...not in my 60 years on the planet! But I might have to give that a go in 2012.

I love the facials I occasionally get, and she always does a perfect job with my brows. I can remember one aesthetician who made them pencil-thin - just awful on me!

I traded massages with a co-worker (I'm a massage therapist) and yes, receiving massage definitely leaves me feeling peaceful and maybe even a little more beautiful. emoticon

I'm a massage therapist and I'm loving these posts!!1 emoticon

I don't know if I felt more "beautiful" after a massage, but I have definitely felt more "noodle-ful"

emoticon ok, sorry about that one.

Peace,
Fran

I agree. I'm an Esthetician and traded as well. It creates such a feeling of peace.

OMG, I need a massage. I miss my days of working in the spa and trading facials for massages...and yes I always felt better and more beautiful after them.

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
emoticon emoticon

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.

I had a 2 hour deep tissue massage on Sunday. I feel so amazingly beautiful. Have you noticed that before? When you do something super nice for you, how wonderful it makes you feel?
