have a chair massage
I was thinking about having a chair massage for a while now but I wasn’t able to fit one smoothly in my schedule.
First one I wanted to have one was in July with my friend Tony. He was giving massages for the whole month of July in front of the Atlantic Ocean in Morocco.
A perfect self-care combo: a massage + the sounds of the waves + breathing fresh iodine.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it.
Then, this week-end, I wanted to have one in Bethesda. There is a spot at the mall where they give pretty good massages.
Less sexy than a massage in front of the ocean but the guys are good.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get one either.
I was too busy.
But just when you just think it’s not the right time for you to do something, life decides the opposite.
In the case of yesterday, I won’t complain.
I stopped at a rest area between Maryland and New York to have dinner with the kids.
It was 6 PM and I was tired of all this driving.
When I entered in the restaurant, I saw them on my right, 4 massage seats aligned. Calling me.
– Pssst Mimi, come here and get a massage!
– Wow ! How did you guys get there?
– We knew you wanted a massage for a long time. Come here and try us!
– How am I gonna do that with the kids?
– Well, come closer and look. You’ll figure it out later.
I got closer and then I found a surprise:
Prices are as follow:
$5 = $15 minutes
$1 = 3 minutes
3 minutes! I think I can keep the kids busy for 3 minutes and get my massage!
– Deal! I said to the chairs.
It was great and I thought: next time, I’ll take the 15 minutes and Hubby will watch the kids.
And next time after next time, I’ll have my Tony/waves/iodine combo.
Chairs are great but nothing compares to a massage by a human.
WHY IS IT SELF-CARE? A chair massage is a great power break when you don’t have that much time: short, relaxing and energizing.
MORE ABOUT THIS
Just want to say here that I had this chair massage with an electronic chair.
It was great and I’m really glad I had it but nothing compares to a massage with a real person who can feel your energy and your tensions.
