This weekend I finally had the chance to use the gift certificate to Kabuki Springs and Spa my brother gave me for Christmas.
The spa was really nice, fancier than the one I went to with my friend years ago. The massage was lovely, but I’m not sure how effective it was. It was nowhere near as painful as a Thai massage or even my acupuncturist. Pain tells me some good is being done. But at least it was very relaxing.
The piece de resistance was a soak in my own private bath. The tub was luxuriously deep. The water, which was the perfect temperature, easily reached my chin. My masseuse said she’d bring me some tea and water, and left the room.
I was lying there with my eyes closed thinking I’d really like an apple, and would have to pick some up on my way home. The masseuse returned. I was so relaxed, I didn’t bother opening my eyes. I heard her set down my tea and water, and leave again.
When I finally opened my eyes, I noticed a little dish next to my beverages. Guess what was in it: apple slices! So perfect. I was lying there in the tub, the room very dim, candles lit, eating delicious apple slices. And the tea was fruity and herbal, perfect for me since I don’t drink caffeine in the afternoon. It was wonderful.
Afterward I was completely blissed out as I made my way to the subway. I recommend everyone get blissed out, at least once in a while.
