Pure Zen

Is it even possible that I’ve been on this earth for over a quarter of a century and yet never experienced a professional massage until today? Yes, indeed… But the nice ladies over at Zen Spa Therapy in Pasadena took care of that problem, and they went all the way to make it a thoroughly relaxing experience.

When you first walk in, you notice the dimmed lighting, serene music, soothing water wall, deep rich wood, and plush fabrics in the reception area. The private massage rooms are all nicely decorated. There’s a meditation room and other amenities that I didn’t explore, but if you’re looking for that sort of thing, it’s all there.

The only thing that got me to make the appointment was a special offer of $30 for a one hour session, otherwise I’d still have no idea what I’ve been missing out on all these years. It turns out this spa is a new business venture started by my dermatologists (as if they need more money) so their patients get a special deal.

About all I can say is… Having a beautiful woman tend to every sore, overworked muscle with warm aromatic oils was not at all unpleasant. Though I expected the massage itself to feel utterly fantastic (and it wasn’t that far off) I found that the big deal is how you feel all day afterwards. It’s like putting on a whole new body.

    My sentiments exactly! I had a professional massage for the first time last semester, and it really wasn’t “all” that or anything.

    No happy ending? :mrgreen:

    Yeah, Silent… It’s not that kind of place. 😳

    Oh, wow… I gotta get me one of those…

    I’ve only had a handful of professional massages myself, but my, they sure are nice! But while the masseuses have all be very nice women, I can’t say any of them were particularly attractive. Oh well, my eyes were closed and that doesn’t matter to me anyway. I think I need to make myself an appt now…

    Nice! The last couple times I got massages left me bruised.

    Saw Serenity yesterday at 1:30pm. Such a good movie.

    I remember my first massage, and from that moment on I was hooked. I’m one of those people that has multiple trigger points, so I like it harder than most. Rolffing is my next adventure, but I hear it is painful. Like mental therapy. I may cry for mommy… who knows? It’s an expensive habit, but well worth it. Find a guy that will come to your house. THATS when you know you are a junkie. HUGS!

    I’m glad to hear you enjoyed the massage. I’ve only had one, but it was delightful. Women should pamper themselves more often – The world would be a happier place, I think.

    Hmm… might have to give that a try.

    God, aren’t they heavenly???

    I LOVED IT! I had a Swedish massage and it was the best thing I’ve ever experienced. I would highly advise y’all to give it a shot… You won’t regret it.
