Heartbroken? Pamper Yourself With a Massage
Relationships are tough. Heartbroken? Pamper yourself with massage. I think everyone should have massages on a monthly basis. They’re good for you. We carry stress in our bodies and a good massage helps get rid of the kinks. I’m a huge fan of massage. I like to get them from my significant other. I like to give them and I love going to the pros. I just like the whole spa experience; the fuzzy white robe, the slippers, the water with lemon and that ahhhh feeling. What’s not to love? I also find that when heartbroken or dealing with relationship drama, it’s extra important for us to care for ourselves. When someone rejects us it pangs at us. It hurts. Rather than drown sorrows in booze, drugs, partying or binge watching Bravo TV in the fetal position on your sofa; we must step up and be kind to ourselves.
Treat yourself to some luxury!
I was recently invited for two 30 minute sample treatments at Agua Spa at Mondrian Hotel for a sneak peek at their offerings for Miami Spa Month. Miami summers are the low season. Hotels and restaurants offer great specials to get locals to indulge given tourism is the lowest of the year. So I go to the Agua Spa which is right around the corner from my apartment on South Beach. The Mondrian Hotel offers one of the best sunset views and poolside scenes (for people looking to chill and not have a loud party scene). Their Agua spa isn’t this big huge space but they offer amazing treatments and the decor is in line with the fabulousness that is the Mondrian. My 30 minute back and neck massage was amazing. The perfect pressure! After I had 30 minutes of foot reflexology. I needed this. The therapist started to massage my feet ankles and calves and the stress I was literally walking around with left me.
Now the gripe that people typically have with massage is that it isn’t long lasting. It’s good during but the second you get into your car and some idiot annoys you on the road, or you check your phone to see if the object of your affections texted or called; massage effects are over. Don’t think that longer term benefits leave you. They don’t. Massage feels good and they are good for you. Get them monthly! If cost is an issue check out Massage Envy for affordable membership packages with great therapists for as little as $49 a month.
Agua Spa at Mondrian is upscale and since it’s low season celebrating Miami Spa Month; they are offering a variety of treatments starting at $99, including Body Bliss and Head in the Clouds. Post-treatment spa guests are invited to make a day of it by relaxing at the beautiful bayside pool or in the sauna. The pool is amazing! Schedule your massage for late day and hang at the pool for the sunset. Here are some heartbreak healing spa treatments.
