Things that should be rock solid? Countertops, real diamonds, and preferably, abdominal muscles. Things that shouldn’t be? Toilet paper, mattresses, and your back muscles. If you frequently find your shoulders hunched up to your ears and your back gravitating towards a sturdy tree to rub the knots out, you need a massage. And I’m not talking a ridiculously overpriced, it-smells-and-sounds-pretty-in-here-but-my-back-is-still-tense kind of massage… I mean the kind of therapy that makes you spring embarrassing tears of relief because you feel taller, lighter, and less likely to scream at the next person who ticks you off.
After years of enduring massages whose effects lasted as long as my manicures (literally minutes), I found Renee Snow. From that day forward, I have saved all of my best knots just for her, because she is the only therapist I’ve ever dealt with who had the training, experience, and intuition to give me long-term relief. When I herniated two discs in my lower back last year, it was Renee who kept me sane until I finally had the surgery I needed. Every time my old car accident neck injury starts acting up, it’s Renee to the rescue, kneading that speed bump into Play-Doh until my headache goes away and my jaw unhinges from its “I Will Survive” pose.
In recent years, my talented massage therapist has branched out by forming Aloha Spa Parties, a mobile spa business that specializes in pampering clients with massages, manicures, pedicures, facials, the works! An excellent alternative or addition to the typical bachelorette or birthday party. She’s also creating luxurious organic body care products, which are incredibly effective AND affordable. Since I’ve had the privilege of trying some of them out, I’ll be reviewing them on upcoming blog posts, so stay tuned for more!
