Acupressure and Leather

FILED IN: The Van Elks

One of my favorite gifts this past Christmas was a professional massage. Unfortunately my masseuse moved to Nashville and now I’m stuck searching.  Since I had a lot of complications after Iain was born, yesterday was one of the first days I had an opportunity to get one.  I went for it.  There is a new place in Muncie called Home Spa.  They do Chinese acupressure. The guy the runs the place awkwardly massaged my back in the middle of the mall.  I felt so uncomfortable but I couldn’t believe how good my back felt after the minute massage (still the longest most uncomfortable minute of my life).  I was curious… so I used my money towards the massage on this new experience.  Big mistake. It hurt so bad.  What happened? It was nothing like the awkward moment!  Like at one point I would have compared it to a contraction.  I thought as I was wincing “It’s all for the good of my back. Tomorrow I’m going to feel awesome.” Wrong.  My back is terribly sore.  So I tell myself today, “It’s sore because it’s back in line and it hasn’t been like that in a while.”  I repeat it over in over in my head because my lovely gift, that I was so thrilled about, turned into a painfest.  If it ends up not helping much, at least I had the chance to try something new.
My favorite purchase this week:  Iain’s new leather baby-man chair.  He looks much bigger than he is in this picture.  Don’t let your eyes fool you. It’s only 24″ x 25″.  I discovered I can fit in it, so we might have to take turns.  It’s pretty comfy.
