so one of those $20/hour foot massage joints recently opened up not too far from home. i noticed it one day as i was out running a bazillion errands, and made a mental note to check it out in the not-too-distant future.
of course, a couple of months went by before i finally decided to give it a shot. my feet were pretty achy, and i was feeling the need for a little relaxation. so i got up extra early for my run, zoomed through my shower, and was out the door with just enough time to get there as they opened.
it was a little odd getting a full body massage while fully clothed, plus a towel draped over me almost from head to toe. because i wanted to get the full experience, i refused to let myself drift off into la la land and instead spent most of my time thinking about how i'd write this post. ha! and this was definitely a no-frills, non-foofy type of place. but it was a pretty damn good rubdown and stretching, with a fabulously relaxing foot massage tossed in. definitely $20 well spent.
although the pricing is a little confusing, or at least i thought so.
but whatever. i forked over my cash happily, threw in a good tip, and left feeling like a million bucks. i downed my cup of water, got in the car, and picked up the bean from school with one big ass smile on my face.
for that price, i could totally get away with a monthly visit. shhhhh. don't tell the hub.
Great that one opened up close to you. We (NB and the family) have been going to Alhambra. $15 plus $5 tipReplyDelete
is way reasonable for a 1-hr massage. Too bad I live too far, although I'm sure there's one here I can try.
