I got a massage this afternoon and Wow, did it help. He did a great job and had very reasonable prices ($45 for 1 hour) -- I think I'm going back regularly, like once a month.
The picture on the left is because the massage room was blue and decorated with pictures of dolphins. The light was painted blue to give the feeling of being underwater. The music was nice (not ocean sounds though, which would have completed the experience). His style of massage is very similar to my Aunt Ruth's, which is a big compliment. AND he didn't introduce the idea of regular visits, I did, and his response was to give me his "usual spiel" of "if you get a massage regularly, even if it's not here..." I like that.
So, I'm relaxed and ready for a study-rific weekend.
