While I only spent two days in San Francisco, my best friend and I packed those days full! Right after getting off the plane, we went to drop off my luggage at her condo (which is gorgeous and so metro!). After getting a whirlwind tour of their place, we visited my favorite stop on my trip – a massage and body work facility called PSOAS. My friend and her husband have been going there for several months now. They do all sorts of fancy stuff there, like deep tissue massage, sports massage, joint mobilization, myofascial release, and work with other clinical/sports body issues.
Now, I should disclose that I’ve never had a professional massage in my adult life. Hard to believe, right? Well, knowing this, my friend said she would treat me to an hour-long session of deep tissue massage (yes, I have the greatest friend in the world, and not just because she treated me to a professional massage). I can’t explain in words how amazingly good I felt after that massage. Yes, it was tight and a little painful, though not unbearably painful, in certain places (notably my hips and neck) when he really got down into the muscle, but afterwards I came out feeling like a million bucks. I felt like I was floating on air. Pains that I never knew I had were gone!
So, needless to say, next time I visit San Francisco, Kevin is coming with me and we are both getting a deep tissue massage. Also, if you ever have a chance to get a deep tissue massage – do it. It’s worth it. So worth it.
