So I’ve had a gift certificate for a thai massage sitting in my inbox for about 6 months. Yes, yes, that’s sad. I know. Today I redeemed it. I just had to. About a week and a half ago I really hurt my neck by sleeping funny, and things hadn’t improved even with yoga. It was bad, like wake up in pain and can’t lift your torso, so you have to exit the bed horizontally, and then flop out.
You know you’re in bad shape when you actually impress your masseuse with how messed up your body is. “Wooooooow. SO TIGHT!” she exclaimed, then she proceeded to work on my shoulders and neck for the majority of the 90 min session. After about an hour in she asked me what I did for a living, how I’d worked myself up into this sorry state. “Computer stuff,” I said.Â Â “Yes, we have lots of clients that are always on the computer. Then they come here and we help them. But you are very very tense. It’s incredible!” 🙁
This is probably what I looked like *facedown* on the mat, getting my bum leg pulled behind me in an assisted yoga stretch. Sigh…
