Another Woman's Hands

Not long ago I experienced my first professional massage. Up until that point all my massages had been the result of lengthy negotiations with girlfriends or ex-wife. The negotiation would go something like: "OK, if you rub my back, I will scrub the toilet." And never in the trading of back rubs does she go first. Can't tell you the number of times I heard, "that felt so good, I am just going to fall asleep."

So we go to the spa and they treat us like the King and Queen. Big soft robes, little slippers, and snacks. If I would have eaten any more trail mix it would have been coming out my ears. I meet my masseuse and she takes me down to room. I am such a rookie that I have to tell her my boxers are still on. She lets me know they can be left on, but it will restrict her in what she can do. That's a no-brainer, off they come, and onto the table I hop.

Start on my back, and I think I am in heaven. She is working my arms, legs, and pulling on my neck. I am so relaxed, but don't want to fall asleep and miss anything. By the time she asks me to turn over to my back I am just a human puddle.

On my back she can now really work the deep-tissue massage. Hard on my legs, as she pulls on my ankle her opposite fist is deep in my hamstrings. Best stretch ever! And then on to my back and shoulders. I can feel her full weight on me as she uses her entire forearm. Stretching my shoulders, and working a weird little knot I have below a shoulder blade. All I am concentrating on doing is breathing through the deep, hard stuff. I ask her at one point, "on a scale of one to ten how hard are you pressing." She replies, "nine."

The hour is over already! Seems like you just got started. I am so relaxed I don't want to move. The only change I would make before the next one is to workout. Imagine how good that deep-tissue would feel if I had worked every muscle in my body to exhaustion.

Took a hard time from some people about getting hard during my massage. My little friend never moved, don't know what would have happened if the masseuse would have been gorgeous. But at no time was my experience sexual.

The next one can't come soon enough. Off to Arizona next week, may have to try one of the spas down there.

I've been getting a massage every two weeks since 1990 - it has kept me sane and prevented many injuries!

My goal is to find a good masseuse who specializes in the deep tissue/athletic rubdowns.

I don't need all the fru-fru stuff, and don't want to pay for the overhead.

Can't wait for a good long bike ride, and then a killer leg massage!

Please Spring, come to Minnesota.
