Yesterday, I got a massage.
I had hurt my back somehow doing Group Power on Monday. I iced my back, but it was still tight.
I asked my husband to rub my back, but he gave up.
Finally, I decided: I need a professional!
It has been years since I’ve had a massage. It’s just an extravagance I normally don’t indulge in. Like getting my hair done…
But it was so worth it!
My back feels so much better. I could feel the knots in my back as she worked them out. I lay for one hour, not moving, not having kids demand to be fed or the dog demand to be watered or any other distraction. And now I feel awesome.
Granted, it hurts. But it’s supposed to hurt if the job was done right.
I got tips to do at home when it happens again. And I was sent away with a glass of water.
It was a good reminder that sometimes a little pampering is needed in this harried world that never stops. TLC can go a long way to reducing stress and for me pain.
Maybe I’ll do this more often. I definitely left taller than when I entered. And to me that was worth every dime!
