As a self-proclaimed girly girl, I LOVE anything that involves pampering. Pedicures, manicures, getting my hair done, facials are just a few of my guilty pleasures. At the top of that list are massages. My sweetheart surprised me one year on my birthday with a full body massage at Massage Envy and it exceeded all of my expectations. It was my first massage so I was a little apprehensive when I was told that I would have to take all of my clothes off (I'm not sure if I expected them to massage me with my clothes on or what!)
The whole experience was so relaxing to say the least and unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to have another massage since then. In trying to juggle going back to school, flying back and forth between Florida and Georgia more times than I would have liked to and recovering from my car accident two weeks ago, I am sure I will make it back to the massage table real soon!
Besides it's calming benefits, massages are exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. I just recently found this out after reading Natural Cures They Don't Want You To Know About by Mike Treadeau, in which he recommends getting a Swedish massage regularly to help detox your body and improve your health. All the more reason for me to go and pamper myself!
What was your first massage experience like?
