I’m not saying you’ll buy yourself a bottle of wine and a green tea mousse cake after a massage with Lori. I’m just saying that’s what I did. Results may vary.
Although we work together, Lori insisted we didn’t talk business on my “massage day”. I’d booked myself in for a one hour session on the first day off I’d had in weeks. To say I was looking forward to it is an understatement.
As always, my neck and shoulders were tight, but Lori did a full body treatment on me. It brought to my attention parts of my body I hadn’t considered much over the last few months. My hips for example. I’ve been running pretty regularly, and though I always take time to stretch the usual suspects: hamstrings and quads, I’d been ignoring my hips. Lori really got into the cracks, and after my massage, my hips felt more open. Heres a few good hip opening stretches too.
Lori has been doing this for awhile, and it shows. Her hands are strong, and adept. I was a little sore the day after my massage, but it was that good kind of soreness, the kind that makes you feel connected to your body. I followed her advice, and drank a lot of water.
And, as I mentioned, I also had a little bit of wine. And a lot of cake. Some say that your muscles hold emotional memory. Well, since my massage with Lori, I am a firm believer in this. Sure, it was a lovely sunny day when I left Soma, but wow! I felt incredible. Light and breezy, with this feeling that I was doing great, and deserved a little reward after my challenging work schedule over the last few months. The massage was an excellent start, and a few hours (and glasses of wine) later, my reward was complete. Thanks Lori!
