I’m running a marathon in less than a month, Gasp!, so when the lovely folks at Spa Week offered me the opportunity to indulge in a full body massage and energy healing I almost ran out the door - literally! Logging all these miles has been hard on my body and it definitely needs a little TLC.
Last week I visited The Steve Hightower Artists’ Salon in Buckhead, a luxury salon offering hair services; skin and body treatments; manicures and pedicures; laser hair therapy; extensions and more. I opted for a half-half deal - a 30 minute full body massage and a 30 minute energy healing.
David, my specialist, was phenomenal. I think he had magic in his hands. Seriously. He started with the massage and worked every kink out of my muscles. He paid extra attention to my feet, legs and hips - ahem - and refreshed them like I haven’t walked a mile.
Afterwards he started the energy healing - something I’ve never had before. If I wasn’t paying attention I might have mistaken it for a soft massage. It was subtle and equally relaxing. David told me he works with Chinese medicine, combining four different methodologies. He also likened it to acupuncture without the needles.
An hour later, I was sipping on a cool glass of water wishing I had a driver to take me home - yes, I was that relaxed! Fab-u-lous!
If you live in Atlanta Spa Week is taking place October 11-17. Not in the ATL? Spa Week is happening in several cities nationwide, you can learn more about it here.
Speaking of relaxing, I’m down in Miami this weekend at the Ritz-Carlton in Southbeach for The Blogalicious Weekend Conference. I’m speaking on The Chronicles of Fit Divas panel tomorrow with my BlogRollin’ partner, Christie, and the fabulous Barbara Gomez.
Yes, I’ve got my running shoes with me even though my foot’s still a little sore. A few miles on Southbeach just might be what the doctor ordered.
Winks & Smiles,
The massage and energy healing were complimentary, however my opinions and thoughts are all my own.
