I just got my first ever professional massage today and it was WONDERFUL. My friend Emily (that I also work with and take all my classes with) gave each other massages for Christmas. A little more than I normally spend on a present for a friend, but we figured it would be a present to ourselves too. And it wasn't as expensive as I always imagined a massage would be. It was amazingly relaxing and now I feel wonderful. I highly recommend the experience!
