Just Call Me J.E.L.L.O...

'cause I just got back from a



It was 90 minutes of massage...



that could be a bit "intense" at times...



but let me tell you this...



I feel better than I have in weeks.

And I have found a wonderful gift that my friends and family can keep buying for me over and over again! (HINT HINT)

Update - I had a couple people ask about Thai Yoga Massage. So, here is the definition that I received from my wonderful Yoga Instructor.

An ancient practice over 2500 years old, Thai Yoga Massage combines passive yoga-like stretching with gentle pressure along your body's natural energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle tension, and enhance your overall well-being. it is practiced as a rhythmic dance by the practitioner who is practicing Metta, loving kindness, while working with gravity, breath, and directed touch. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing that will allow for full range of motion during the session.

Thai Yoga Massage opens up areas that are traditionally not reached with the traditional massage. Thai Yoga Massage is highly effective fore those with lower back sensitivities. The session is performed on a special mat on the floor, leaving you with a deeply nourished, relaxed, and energized feeling. it's one of the best things you can do for your body!

That does sound intense, or at least the pictures look painful. I got swedish massage on Friday, just my speed, slow and gentle.

Maybe this is what DH needs. After another trip to the doctor (now b/c of his back) he has been put back on prescription pain pills & physical therapy.
I am trying to get him to go to yoga with me tomorrow--the dr. suggested he continue to go to the gym to work his muscles.
