for massage #2, we decided to get more than just a foot rub and go for a traditional thai massage. after having our feet washed, we hopped onto side-by-side beds surrounded by curtains, laid face down and waited. moments later, our therapists climbed on top of us and the stretching, pulling and twisting began – and didn’t stop for an hour. at one point, when i was being flipped around, i opened my eyes to find danny’s therapist walking on him and smiling down at me. (Google Images “traditional thai massage” and take a peek at the positions).
ting, who’s strangely flexible and awesome at yoga, loved it. me? not as much. i felt like 50% of the time i was in pain and the other 50% i couldn’t relax because i had no idea which limb was going to be tugged on or pushed over my head next.
i think i’m going to stick with the recliner chair massages and let ting get his fill of the full body stretching for the both of us.
