I just had a massage with my daughter. It was one of our Christmas presents to each other. It was an hour of sheer bliss at one of the local strip mall establishments. My daughter and I had never been there so we got a discount. However, as great as it was, it doesn’t hold a candle to the relaxation you get with Leah and her acupressure massage.
Acupressure Massage vs. Strip Mall Massage
There is 180 degrees difference and all I can do to show the contrast is describe them. So without acupressure massage, the massage is standard. I didn’t ask for any deep tissue or hot rocks. It was good and relaxing, but your normal massage. There were heated tables. Yet, the ambient temperature was too cold so every time a part of my body were outside the blanket, I would get a bit chilled. Beyond that, it was what everyone would expect in a massage. She even really got into my shoulder blades good.
Onto acupressure massage. Because as good as a regular massage is, Leah beats it with her acupressure massage, hands down. You start out with your usual acupuncture for whatever ails you. *Blow through a couple of the other blogs here to read about your specific issues.* As she removes the wee needles, she massages in a way that reinforce the needles she has just place. An acupressure massage focuses on more specific points than an entire muscle group. The relaxation is intense. It is like you can almost feel the Qi (life energy) flowing freely. Oh…and the temperature is always perfect.
It is an entirely different experience from your standard massage. Both are great. I prefer Leah’s. Try an acupressure massage today, as part of your acupuncture treatment. Finally, a “treatment” that is really a “treat”!
