I got a massage today. A 90 minute body massage. In a small place located underneath a subway station so I heard the subway rattle by the every other minute or so which did not bother me at all, I find that soothing almost like a white noise. The massage was average, like below average actually. Meh. I've had better but it felt good to get my flesh squeezed and my muscles stretched. I have been walking a lot here (good!), what I really need is a foot spa for like two hours but I am saving that for another time. Probably for when I am back in Portland.
I LOVE massage. Ideally I would like a weekly full body massage for at least 90 minutes. And a two hour foot spa twice a month. Then add a quality 90 minutes minimum facial with a face massage included once a month and that is the ultimate body care package in my book.
Anyhow.....I recall some massages that I had in the past. One in Poland by some guy massage therapist that thought he was hot. I was 23 I think and he thought that I could be in better shape.....I was like? OK dude I like ice cream and food, plus I don't care what you think of my shape.
Then I had a massage in Anchorage (that is in Alaska in case you do not know), towards the end the massage therapist decided to turn off the llight and crawled up on the table and straddled me (I was face down). Never had that type of massage before.....she also went over the time cause I had a facial booked after the massage and the esthetician had to knock on the door to announce that it was time for my facial. That massage was a bit different.
Then in Kenai (also Alaska) I had my one and only thai massage (so far). That lady said she thought I had a nice body so therefore my boyfriend was lucky. In Salem OR I had a massage that started out with the massage therapist massaging my ears, she stuck her finger into my ear and stretched my ear somehow and that felt really goodl I highly recommend that move. In Vegas at the Korean spa I had a body scrub/massage and the lady scrubbed me so hard that I though she would peel my skin off. When the session was done she announced it by giving me a hearty slap on my bare butt (I was down to my underwear). You have to be OK with some new experinces when it comes to massage. As long as the person rubbing me doesn't do something creepy I am good (like do not touch my boobs and in between my legs, I do not need massage there OK). Everywhere else yes please! And hard.
And now to my absolute fave massage ever..... At a foot spa in Vegas. I visited a lady there several times, she called herself Kathy. She was from China so it was not her real name. Kathy is the only woman that I daydream about......she was that AMAZING. I would get a two hour massage and schedule it around 9 pm so I could just go home and crawl into bed afterwards. Two hours of pure bliss.
