After 4 days of intense work changing 8 windows and a patio door, my muscles were aching. I googled 'massages' in my area, and found Carla's, which had quite a few different types of massages available by a licensed, professional masseur. I asked for an appointment that day, and was grateful that the masseur was able to fit me in his schedule a few hours later.
He began by asking me a few questions that only a trained professional would ask[ what kind of massage did I want/was I having any particular problems that I wanted him to work on; have I ever had a massage before; did I have anything medically or physically he should know; etc.]
After I was situated on the warm table, enjoying the soft lights and music, he came back in and started the most wonderful healing massage, making sure that I was comfortable and that the pressure wasn't too hard or too soft. He really took care of my aching muscles :)
