Going full steam back into the gym recently after weeks of not doing a thing, my body really felt the pain. Who said there was a thing as muscle memory?
Well, it’s my own fault actually. I didn’t just start off with a quick and easy workout. I started off with a 60 minute Rumble class at the Gym which is basically a fast pace, circuit-based boxing class!
My muscles didn’t seem to remember any way of recovering after that class!!!
It literally felt like I had shackles on my ankles and elbows (yes elbows) and every time I laughed my entire right side pulled stiff.
Must be age catching up with me?
But then, I remembered I’d been invited to experience a massage at the newly opened MyMassage in Green Point.
So what better time to take advantage of their offer after all that self-inflicted pain?
I booked my appointment online, which was really simple. I was able to select my therapist and time, which I did for an early Saturday morning.
I found the place quite easily and there was ample parking on the road adjacent to the studio as well as opposite the studio.
I was greeted by friendly staff who asked me to complete a questionnaire asking me about my overall health as well as my preference for the massage.
The Massage Treatment
My massage therapist was Brendah, who welcomed me into my room. After discussing my areas of concern, my 60 minutes of stress and pain relief begun – and I can tell you – Brendah’s hands can work magic!
I had a full body massage and I asked Brendah to pay a little more focus on my legs as that was what was troubling me most.
It was literally in heaven for an hour.
I found the whole experience extremely relaxing and by the next day, I could feel a huge relief in my muscles.
There’s no doubt I will be back to MyMassage soon! I actually think I deserve it, after sticking to my exercise plan ever since 🙂
