So yesterday I went for my first ever massage.
I received a voucher from Calley from Institute de Beaute (since Christmas, but then it expired, then I had to get it extended, then I couldn't go becauseI had sunburn, then the next week I forgot the voucher home, then last week they didn't have my appontment), I finally made it yesterday.
Gone into the lil changing area. Took off my clothes and wrapped a towel around my body and one around my head. Lay down on my tummy and waiting for the body scrub in this semi-darkish room wid some real ahm...kinda massage type music playing.
So the girl puts the first set of whatever it is on my leg (warmish) and starts to srcub.
The body scrub feels like they use the coarsest most granular apricot scrub...like industrial strength or something. And she rubs my skin using loofah-type gloves...Well yes.
Now while at first it felt like the woman was trying to srcub away my first 5 or so layers of epidermis, but after a while you get accustomed to the feel of being tortured by those little granules.
After the scrub, I had to go into the sauna for 10 minutes. Another first. It was cool (well hot) for the most part...I had to keep my face in the towel cause I didn't like the feel of the heat on my face.
Next came the best part...my aromatherapy massage.
That was fantastic. Same postion...face down...enjoying the music, the smells and then...the woman starts to slap me!! Dred...My legs were assaulted. But then she went back into the massage and pulled all my fingers, toes, massaged my back. I actually felt stress leaving my fingertips.
It was wonderful. I probably won't do the body scrub again...but I could definitely see the Aromatherapy Massage getting regular play by me.
