Calling ALL runners!!!! You've got to check this place out, and treat your hard-worked body to a beautiful, relaxing, and much-needed massage!
After running my first half marathon (woot! woot!), I treated myself to a massage. Now, since there are so many choices, I was very careful to pick one that would meet my standards, expectations, and needs. Something that was reasonable price, too.
[[--more--]]Well, I am very happy that I chose Massage LuXe. Although 1hr wasn't enough, (if you can afford it, I high recommend the 90 mins massage!) I chose the 1hr massage for my first time. Now for my first visit, I received an introductory rate of $38.
I received a "stronger" Swedish massage. BEST choice! I do love my deep tissue massages, but after a hard, long run, my body was not ready for a super deep massage.
Now, you can undress up to your comfort. Start off with a warm towel, and they are very careful how they flip you over to maintain your privacy! I love how each person gets their own private room. For the full hour, you can address your needs, the strength level, and other areas of your concern.
Now, I have received physical therapy and massages since I was about age 14!
Plus, I've been to THAILAND, where they have DA BOMB massages! Seriously, nothing beats a 2 hr. professional full-body Thai massage for $20!!! So, I have "very high" expectations and have experienced the one of the highest quality of massages that I believe is around...
MassageLuXe definitely has something that is comparable to my needs, and meets my expectations.
In fact, I ended up getting their membership, which gives me a free 1hr massage/each month, and FREE ACCESS any time/any day to the hydrobed.
The hydrobed is a water bed that you lay on.. It feels more like you are laying on a conveyor belt.. there are beads moving up and down your body.. or you can change the setting to have the beads only move on your upper/ or lower body.
As the beads move up and down, you can change the speed as well...
Then, you just lay on the bed and enjoy the ride! It's kind of weird at first, but after a minute, you get so used to it, and want to just fall asleep!! It's so relaxing and so fun!
