Most people when asked what would they do if they won the lottery…the most common answers given is go on vacation and buy a house. I say….hire a live in , 24hr on call massage therapist. Available to give me a massage whenever I wanted. For the past six months I have been saying that I was going to get a massage, as I have neck, shoulder and back injuries from a car accident years ago and I needed one badly as I was in pain…Today was finally the day.
I am not one of those lucky people who have a health insurance plan that covers massages (yes I am jealous…so many of my friends who do, NEVER take advantage of it? Crazy!) so I opted for a student to do the massage for ONLY $37 ….at the prestigious Sutherland Chan School and Teaching Clinic at 330 Dupont St. Suite 400 (1 block west of Dupont subway station) Call 924-1107 ext. 10 ….to book an appointment
These are qualified students that are supervised by professional teachers that randomly monitor the massage. Since I have had a lot of massages over the years, by some amazing therapists, I was honestly a bit worried whether I would like the quality of the massage. Gladly, it was amazing. The students name giving me the massage was Josh. He was a very nice and had a very calming personality that put me at ease. Due to my injuries I did not choose to do the relaxation massage, which is a choice, but instead choose to focus on treating the problem areas. He worked on the injured areas for about 40 minutes after he did the initial first assessment. I will try the relaxing massage next time.
The massage area was one large, very clean and nice room, with thick curtains dividing the different massage beds/stations.
I felt so much relief of the pain that I had when I 1st arrived. Left feeling relaxed and refreshed. I went home and took an Epsom salt bath which is recommended after a massage. Heavenly!
A great massage… AN INSTANT MINI-VACATION in the busy city for *only* $37.00!
They also do specialty clinics for…Seniors, Pregnancy, Sports Injury, Breast Massage,Pelvic Chronic Pelvic Pain, Central Nervous System Clinic….
All these clinics if you are eligible are * only* $15 for a 1 hour appointment.
I qualified for the breast massage clinic because I had surgery a few years ago.
Will let you know how that goes next week.
I need to win the lottery ASAP, I need a massage everyday! 😉
