Month two begins!
In addition to being a mom, owning a small business, and documenting this challenge, I’ve also been a licensed massage therapist for twelve years.
So, I fully believe that massage therapy should not be a luxury, but a part of your well-being. It boosts immunity, increases metabolism, decreases stress, and helps lower blood pressure.
The downside of being a massage therapist, is that it’s very difficult to relax in a massage without analyzing their technique. It’s probably similar to a chef eating at a another restaurant.
Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I figured you may be interested in sending your loved one (or yourself!) to the fantastic massage therapist I found this week.
Sharon Vogel at Blissful Spa is the real deal.
She’s been a licensed massage therapist for over 20 years, and she’s trained in a variety of modalities: shiatsu, sports, deep tissue, reflexology, hot stone, lymphatic drainage, as well as holistic health care.
What I especially loved about her philosophy is that she doesn’t set a pay scale or appointment based on technique (ie. deep tissue vs. Swedish). Each massage is customized to your body’s needs; this allows Sharon to use her vast education to best help you.
She also accepts insurance which may be beneficial if you have specific medical concerns.
If you’re just looking for relaxation and a chance to recharge- you won’t be disappointed. If you’re also a massage therapist looking for someone knowledgeable, experienced, intuitive, with fantastic technique- you definitely won’t be disappointed!
Where do you go to relax and recharge?
