Relax. You should do it. Even if some Frankie in Hollywood says don’t.
However, it’s not a word most of us get to hear, do or even really understand what it means, right?
For me, when I relax, I don’t feel like I’m managing things at work, at home or anywhere…However, my “management style” has now caused the rest of my body to look and feel like something out of “Hunchback of Notre Dame.” (And just in case yours looks the same; it’s not supposed to look that way no matter how long you’ve looked like it.)
Funny enough it’s not always a long day at the spa that can help you to “get right.” Actually it’s amazing what 30 minutes of “felaxing” can do for you and your well being.
Massage Felax specializes in the ancient art of reflexology and other massage modalities including Swedish, Prenatal, Lomi Lomi, Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point and Ashiatsu.
Each reflexologist has been through a rigorous reflexology traning program to ensure proper technique of the 50 reflex points. Whether you’ve got only 30 minutes for a reflexology session at just $29 (lunch break) or you can spare 60 minutes for a $79 massage, Felax creates the comfortable environment you need, but also allows you to be able to work through it (with my mobile phone still in hand for a few email check ins while I was checked out!)
enjoyed loved the ample attention to my feet (I always say you have to be good to the things that keep you upright), it’s the ashiatsu (don’t forget the A in that word) that really will take you to a new world. Like a member of Cirque de Soleil, my Massage Felax therapist leaped onto the table I was laying on, grabbed the bars above her head, and began to really work through the pressure I was holding in my back. It was an intense experience, but if you deal with stress in your shoulders, back or neck, you know that the ongoing pain from that is much worse. She worked through my trouble areas and I began to be able to work through mine, too.
Not up for trying things alone, bring a friend and the spouse. Special features such as a couple’s therapy room is available at the Park Cities and Dyer Street locations and oxygen therapy, ashiatsu massage and accommodations for group spa treatments are offered at the Addison venue. If you have the time, it’s totally worth the $85 seventy minute signature combo (reflexology and full body massage) for the complete head-to-toe treatment. And now until May 29, to honor our veterans, Felax is offering a free massage when you call and make an appointment and show your VA card.
This is the happy ending that they really meant for us all to have.
