In eager anticipation today

I have about three ounces of breastmilk in a bottle in the fridge that Aidan didn't drink yesterday, so I'm taking advantage of that and going to take a two hour Thai massage today. I'm so excited about it because I haven't had one since I became pregnant. Gotta take advantage of all these luxuries that we can get in Thailand while we still can. MMmmmmmm!!!!

Would this be fully clothed floor massage? Or would this be the type of massage where two therapist work on you at the same time? Do tell.

I had a wonder massage two weeks ago where I relaxed so much that I feel asleep and SNORED!!! Oh gosh! I was embarrassed, and did it OVER and OVER!! The MT just laughed about it and said that's a sign of a good massage!!

I was more worried about slobbering on the face cushion, than snoring! When I relax, I snore and slobber! Isn't that a picture of health and beauty?

The massage therapist I had two weeks ago got into those sore spots on my back and worked them out, stretched muscles, and he would find THAT really painful spot and smash the pain.

I was so happy and relax I really didn't want to get in my car and drive!

Hope yours is as much of a restorative one as mine was!

This is a fully clothed massage, although you change into loose pajama style clothing once you arrive. I had only one therapist, a 40 year old small woman who had gentle yet strong hands.

Thai massage is a rythmic pressing of different pressure points and sen lines (or chi in Chinese medicine). Some have described it as a type of two person hatha yoga, because there are some positions the masseuse puts you into that are NOT condusive to sleep. She actually walked on my hamstrings, full weight. Another position she had me in was me on my stomach with my legs bent and she sat on my flexed feet and massaged my back.

Funny you had a problem with snoring and getting drool on the cushion -- I didn't wear my bra and I ended up leaking milk everywhere! I had to change back into my (padded) bra and tee shirt! LOL!
