Massage: Knead It or Knock It? The Lowdown on the Rubdown!

4 Aug

Ahhhhh who could use a massage right about now?  I know I could.  A spa without massage is like a meatloaf without the meat!  So why do so many struggle with the most quintessential of all spa treatments?

Get your rubdown on with massage therapists, connoisseurs, neophytes and spa experts as we inaugurate #SpaWeekGossip with a virtual massage – what else?  We’ll chat about:

Our most delicious & disastrous experiences on the table

Hands on advice for optimizing spa massages

Picking the perfect type & therapist. Swedish? Stone? Thai?

Giving & receiving relationship rehab with a “rub”

Home massage gear that really de-knots (and what does not)
