Every once in a while, a girl (or I guess a guy too) needs a chance to relax for a couple of hours while someone pampers her. I have never been one to turn down a pampering, I get mani’s/pedi’s all the time and I am known to get facials and massages whenever the need strikes!
Last night I had a 5:00 appt for both a steam facial AND a hot stone massage. Now you may be asking “why does she want so much heat when it’s the middle of summer and 30+ degrees outside”? Because I LOVE heat! I do. My body craves it like PETA craves animal loving! (sorry PETA)
I made an appointment with my favourite esthitician Bessie to do an eyebrow wax and steam facial and I actually fell asleep. We usually talk each others ears off throughout our appointments, but I was so tired and she made me feel so relaxed that I passed out cold under her touch. My skin is a beautiful pink shade today – no more black heads! WOOHOO!
My second appointment was with Laura who specializes in hot stone massage and is probably 24 years-old if that! She is cute as a button and instantly had me relaxed again under her touch within minutes. I didn’t fall asleep though because I guess I was rested from my 20 minute cat-nap during my facial. We chatted and got to know each other and by the end of the massage I was debating my ability to drive home. I was so warm and cozy and relaxed I did not want to move. I had to laugh because at one point Laura asked me if I worked at a computer all day? I said yes and questioned how she knew???? She told me I have computer arms…I don’t know what that meant, but the pain that shot through my arms as she rubbed and kneaded them was proof enough that I need to back away from the computer once in a while. Even this morning they feel better, but I can feel a slight ache in the right arm (my mouse clicking arm).
I cannot wait till October when I do that exact sequence all over again! If you want a massage or facial, or mani/pedi or any other spa service and live in the North York, ON. area, head over to 801 York Mills Rd. http://www.uptownspa.com/index2.htm
