It had been years since anyone had massaged my feet. Until today that is. A couple of days ago the folks from Massage Envy reached out to me to offer me an early Father’s Day present. My choice between a deep tissue massage or a Swedish massage, on the house. I’d never had either so I had to do some research first. Al final me decide por un deep tissue massage, and can I just say, it was AMAZING!

It was AMAZING!

After the long week I’d had last week, it was also exactly what I needed at this moment in my life, jajaja! Okay, so I’m being a little overdramatic, but it was very restful and relaxing. My session lasted about an hour, and after it was over I walked out feeling renewed and refreshed. No sé. The only other time someone had massaged me like that, it was a chiropractor. She was good and all, but she was very rough. I mean twist-you-neck and pop-every-bone-in-your-body rough. She was harsh!

Aquí, on the other hand, they were very gentle.  

I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive at first. “Guys don’t do this.” “Am I supposed to get naked.” “What’s the difference between a deep tissue massage and a Swedish massage?” “Should I have a male or female masseuse massage me?” All of those questions passed through my mind, pero al final decidí hacerlo anyway. What the hey, right?

It was definitely worth it, and I had to come home and tell you about it.

An early Father's Day gift There’s also a cool little perk that comes along with this experience. I get to do a giveaway for one lucky dad to get the same royal treatment at one of the 30 Houston area Massage Envy Spa locations. You should be in Houston (or nearby anyway) to participate in this giveaway. Either you can enter for the father(s) in your life, or if you are a father yourself, you can enter your name into the race too :-)
