It’s easy to satisfy me, simply give me the best and I’m satisfied! Unfortunately it’s the task of finding the best that’s not so easy to do. I recently stumbled on what was in my experience, the best massage in Sydney.
Ok, I’ll admit it, I’m addicted to massage. I also admit that my motivation is purely one of self indulgence. I know that massage therapy is highly therapeutic and good for you in a million different ways. It stimulates blood circulation and endorphin release and joint mobility and muscular recovery after sport or a workout. But for me massage is just sheer pleasure and escapism and one of the simplest and easiest ways I can treat myself to a good time whenever I feel I deserve it, which is a lot!
I’m blessed to live near beautiful Coogee Beach in Sydney and I frequently take the coastal walk all the way to Bondi Beach. Doing this every day or so keeps me fit and I simply never get tired of the views. Anyone who has taken the walk knows exactly what I mean. Allow me to tell you about my experience last week.
While taking a long invigorating walk I came across a massage shop I had not seen before. This particular shop specialises in traditional Thai massage as well as sports and remedial massages but my feet were aching so I went for the Thai foot massage. By the way, all the staff were Thai ladies who were very easy on the eyes which I didn’t mind one little bit.
Now in case you haven’t worked it out yet, I’m quite the massage connoisseur. I’ve had at least one per week for as long as I can remember and sadly, the quality you get varies enormously from place to place. If I have a bad experience, I don’t go back, simple as that, and while I do have a handful of favorite places that I go back to regularly, I still love to check out a new place when I find one.
I’ll give you an example of a bad experience I had recently. I was visiting friends in Melbourne and felt like some well deserved pampering so I found a local Thai Massage shop to indulge in a Thai foot massage. Well the girl who gave it seemed like she needed some serious training because to me she didn’t even seem to grasp the basic fundamentals of massage.
Massage is all about the soft tissues, you work predominantly on muscle, and for the most part avoid bone because having bony areas massaged is at best unpleasant and at worst painful. And yet that’s precisely what she did, most of the time was spent massaging my bony upper foot and shin bones! Somehow I don’t think I’ll grace them with my good looks again any time soon.
Last weeks foot massage in Sydney by contrast was simply heaven on a stick! A perfect massage given by someone who really knew what she was doing. My feet and calves got a thorough working over, the pressure and intensity was just right and the pace of the massage was superb. Top all that off with her beautiful gracious smile and the experience was complete, simply the best massage in Sydney, in my humble opinion at least. Needless to say I’ve already been back, and it 마사지 be the last time.
