I own a spa but I wouldn’t say it is easy for me to get services for myself. It is definitely accessible but not always easy. Truthfully, I still feel guilty sometimes when I take time for myself…. whether is to get my lashes filled, get a massage or even a facial. I am a walking billboard for my business so I need to have good lashes and good skin so that I can promote my business but I still feel guilty sometimes. I work on clients in my treatment room all day and hold my babies at home all night so my body needs work, massage therapy, and I still feel guilty sometimes.
Misconception #2: "I have to be in a lot of pain for a deep tissue massage."
“No pain no gain, right?”. Wrong. The term ‘deep tissue massage’ is often thought of as a painful and uncomfortable experience that takes days to recover from. Sure, it’s more intense than a relaxing Swedish massage, but when you’re under the care of a Registered Massage Therapist, you’ll feel little discomfort with long term results.
