Connecting to benefits of massage

As I have mentioned in recent posts work has been exhausting and overwhelming lately.

So today after work I treated myself to a massage. I have been going to Bellissima Day Spa for seven years. And probably for the past 3-4 years Thanh has been taking care of me.

And Thanh does an awesome job of taking care of me. She does amazing work with her hands and I can tell she cares about me.

We chat a lot during most appointments (though I don’t like to chat while getting a massage) and I always get a hug before I leave.

I noticed she changed things up a bit today. Sometimes Thanh will ask me how I am or what is going on and that helps her determine the type if work she will rub into my knots and muscles.

I have never been disappointed with Thanh’s work. And today was no exception.

I actually feel asleep briefly a few times. I don’t want to miss out on enjoying the massage during it so I don’t want to fall asleep. But I was really tired.
