Manly Massage

I realize that we are in a recession but sometimes, especially in these times, it's nice to treat yourself.

I have this great sponsor called Asha Salon. They really know how do do it right. I have had a massage, facial, manicure, and YES a pedicure in the last few weeks. The people who work there are awesome. They are highly trained and they treat you like a king or queen. It's a wonderful way to get away for a mini-vacation. It's quiet and relaxing and a great way to gather your thoughts. It isn't inexpensive, but compared to a small vacation or a couple of nights in the city, it's very reasonable.

These are tough times on the mind. When you go into Asha, you forget about your troubles for awhile, and a person concentrates on *you* for a change. Doesn't that sound nice? The atmosphere is wonderful. You get offered tea or water with cucumber or lemon. You receive a nice hand massage, and they give you a warm neck pillow to relax before your treatment.

If this doesn't sound like your cup of tea, consider getting someone you care about a gift certificate for the holidays. Take care of yourself, and you will be better prepared to take care of the people who are important in your life.

I wasn't one for this kind of thing. But the old saying "Don't knock it 'til you've tried it" certainly applies. My co-host Amy Jacobson is getting a massage this week. She balked when I suggested to her that we do a "platonic" couples massage.

Listen in this Sunday between 5 and 7 PM for the happy details. I am going in for the body elixir (!)--I have no idea what it is, but it sounds intriguing.

Have you ever gone to a spa or had a manicure or massage? Share your story.
