Yesterday was my third back adjustment, but it was preceded by an hour long deep muscle therapeutic massage, head to toe, no muscle left unmoved, no joint left unshaken. I was moved and bent and stretched and stimulated to get the blood flowing every which way, even had a face muscle workout.
The Brazilian masseuse had 20 years experience, and we talked about her kids and my kids but I followed her into the dark room and laid down so if I passed her on the street I would not know her, kind of funny, but I got the whole nine yards. I am sore this morning and still recovering, still sore in that one shoulder area but getting better I hope. This was obviously my first massage, and I kept asking muscle and nerve questions the whole time. She told me I had exceptional flexibility, and I was proud that stretching was already part of my weekly routine.
I should change the subject but I woke up in the middle of the night and tried to sleep on the couch so I am still trying to wake up, so much of our life is just normal stuff like this, and after a week I am ready for a new normal.
