Last week, Meghan and I were walking by a new spa and wellness center. It had opened just a few weeks ago, so I decided to peek my head in for a brochure. I’ve been meaning to get a massage for quite some time. Cancer survivors’ bodies get pretty beaten up. We go through a lot, but I’m sure everyone feels like their bodies are going through the same thing.
I don’t know that massage therapy will necessarily cure my cancer, but according to the American Cancer Society, “massage has been shown in several studies to improve quality of life and well-being. It is helpful not only physically but emotionally as it soothes the soul and the mind."
They had a discount running in August so I scheduled one for tonight. They also have a promotion that your first 4 classes are free. It’s really incredible and my options are: Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Mindful Yoga, Padma Yoga, Mat Pilates, Yogilates, Tai Chi, Qigong, and even Belly Dancing or Hula classes. I don't know that you'll see me in a Hula skirt or belly dancing, but please let me know if you want to join or which ones I should sign up for?
