Gratitude and Joy

Day 28 – A Year of Gratitude and Joy – Massages

I’m grateful for relaxed muscles and loosened knots, aka a really great massage.

I’ve been getting regular massages for about 20 years. Before moving to Arizona, I had a massage therapist who knew every knot on my back and neck … and, more importantly, how to knead those little pests and eliminate them. We even had a massage table at home and he came to us.

Our home massage table mostly lives in its cabinet now.

When we moved out west, Greg and I went through a lot of therapists trying to find that one who rubbed out the tight spots the way we like. It’s a combination of long, relaxing strokes and deep tissue.

A great massage includes a relaxed setting.

It took a couple of years, but we found a guy! Sam owns Coyote Bodywork and has just the right skills to loosen up my shoulders, neck and back while still having time leftover for my feet. (Let’s face it, there’s a whole lot to love about a good foot massage.) His office even offers a little zen garden to get you mentally relaxing.

That tiny rake is fun and relaxing.

We all get tense. We all cope with tension in different ways. For me, a great massage can do wonders for my muscles AND my disposition. We’ve even visited spas on our travels to help us chill out amid the sometimes physical activities on a vacation.

Today I am grateful for a good massage and the easy smile it puts on my face.

There’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. A visit to a spa can make it a whole lot easier to relax and enjoy your adventures.
