There is nothing like the deep relaxation of a professional massage. Aromatherapy has been my rub down of choice for a while now, but I think I may have to switch. Tuesday I experienced my first reflexology massage and OMG it was heaven!
After work I headed over to Facelogic. As a first time customer I was a little leery of giving a new place a try, but as I walked up to the door and saw the calming reception area, I quickly chilled. Now, any spa treatment I’ve had has always been in a place with rooms, so when my masseuse walked me to a large back room with two rows of booths, I was a little freaked. Mind you, the atmosphere was perfect: dark, calming music, nicely sceneted but not over powering. The booths were all covered with thick curtains so you could not see in them, sort of like a fancy changing room. While the set up is a little weird, I quickly warmed up to the booth. You can’t hear anyone else in the room (and there at least 12 booths in there) and it’s as private as a room would be.
I went into the session knowing that reflexology focuses on pressure points in your feet and connect to other parts of your body. Even though the concept sounded intriguing, I considered it a glorified foot rub and ignored the service in lieu of other spa treatments. I greatly underestimated how amazing the experience would be. My feet and calves were rubbed, stretched, and sugar scrubbed for 50 minutes while a hot cloth lay draped over my eyes. Surprisingly, I ended up falling asleep and was just as relaxed and refreshed as if I had gone in for a full body. This so much more than a uber-foot rub, and I am going back soon for another one.
