I love massages! Whether it be a basic Swedish massage, or the caring hands of a friend or loved one, the comfort and release of tension can be heavenly. I love the euphoric feeling afterwards when tense muscles finally release their grip on whatever matters, thoughts and stresses that have built up over the days and months.
I remember my first professional massage at a spa. I felt like royalty! The staff offered me water with a hint of mint and cucumber and offered me a soft robe and slippers (that I was sad to have to return at the end of my appointment). The scent of lavender filled my room and the music immediately put me in a meditative state. The masseuse asked questions about my tension, any aches or injuries and then swiftly went about working to relax and soothe each muscle.
