Spring/Wood is the time of year that we burst forward with plans and activities with childlike enthusiasm. Everything is green and fresh and alive. Our dreams are realized. It is a creative time unless repressed then can be aggressive and anger may arise. We need to be able to ask for what we need. Flexibility is key, like the willow tree.

Couples Massage Tutorial

Couples Massage Tutorial

A couple came into the spa where I was working (pre-COVID) to celebrate their 25th Wedding Anniversary with massages. 

He was a Math Teacher for adults in college. I don’t know what made me do it but I asked him if he had ever had a massage before.  Never!  An Honor I told him and that his job would be to breathe and to tell me if anything did not feel good. 

He punctuated the end of the massage with a gentle snore.  A fan! his wife said.  When they emerged he told her Honey, I’ve been doing it wrong all this time!!!  I told him it’s never too late and that the more massages he received the better his giving would be.  She said she wants another 40 years together!!!  Bliss!!
