Relaxing the Body

After Tia signed up for Massage Envy last year and sang the praises of regular massages, I decided to give it a try. My plan was to get one, but the one was good, my flexibility improved, so I signed up for the year plan. Since then I've been pretty good, I'm one behind on my monthly's, though I did get two one month during baseball season. Tia's now 4 or 5 behind.

I've been feeling a bit beat up over the last few weeks. Between going back to karate and running, my body has been pretty tired. I meant to go last week, but blew it off. After pulling muscles and struggling through the weekend, I decided to go today and get one.

And it was great. I had a medium/hard sports massage and it was different than the deep tissue massages I've had, but it really relaxed me. It helped me to just take it easy and I feel much better. It was a good fit for a sore, beat up body and now I'm ready for my daily run.
