When I was in Singapore I wandered into a mall sort of place called Orchard Towers. I’ve never been offered so many massages in my life. I’m surprised to this day that so many young women become massage therapists over there. It must pay well.
@hchavers I remember that too. I have a relatively nice watch my wife gave me as a gift and it drew a fair amount of interest. I’d usually respond: “Thanks. It’s just a Citizen.” and I would get an incredulous “JUST a Citizen.” I guess it’s nicer than a lot of people have there.
I wasn’t a massage fan until I found the right therapist. Now I go semi-annually. It definitely helps with nagging injuries and general pain. If something is bothering you, let your therapist know and they’ll either work on that area more than others, or be gentle.
It’s definitely not for everyone, but if you live an active lifestyle or have chronic pain, it can be very helpful.
I’ve been getting them for years. I gifted massages to my sisters, parents, friends and sons. They all LOVE it! Mostly it’s through my massage therapist. My boys like it so much that they found good ones around where they live.
