I hate to say that this one was a major let down, but it was. When you think of getting massage you think of being relaxed and feeling amazing afterward.
I'm pretty sure my back and neck will be one huge bruise in a few days.
At the beginning of this month, mom had a gift certificate to get a massage at some cute little place in KC. They close at 6 and are only open on the week days. It was her first massage so I went with her just to watch her feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
We got home and found another gift certificate to a place in town. They were open on weekends and I decided to get one too. I was so excited. My back had been hurting for a few weeks and I thought this would fix it.
I am not one to bruise easily and can handle pressure fairly well, but this lady was rough. I ended up leaving the salon feeling about 5 times worse than when I went it. If this is what all massages are like, I'm never having another one again. But I know that's not true because I hear about how great they are. And mom's first one was so much better than this one (she left feeling uncomfortable after this one too, but she only a a 30 minute one, I had an hour.)
Seriously, I'll be shocked if I don't bruise in a few days. This next week is going to be tough sitting in a computer chair and in this much back/neck pain.
Maybe one day I'll try another massage, but definitely not anytime soon....
