Seems that everyone and their dog is looking for a massage this week. What's the deal?
I just finished a 2 hour session that included a half hour reflexology, 1 hour massage and then a half hour face toning massage.
The face toning massage is interesting. It involves following a protocol of about 25 strokes, repeated a certain number of times for each stroke and each "set" is done about 3 times. Normally I don't like anything where I'm just following a pattern and I've to "switch off" my hands as far as being in search (and destroy) mode, but I do something to keep my mind active for remembering the strokes, which is interesting. When my bud Kelli and I were doing the course in Face Toning we made up a little story to remember the strokes. It's a mad story involving Harry Potter playing Pacman and Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas' love life (part of it is a bit crude - needless to say). BUT the wee crazy story sticks. I remember the pattern and sequence of strokes. It works.
Anyway.....if the first sentence of this post is actually true, I should go look at doing a course in doggy massage.
Next client will be here in 2 minutes.
