Mind a Massage?

a on Feb 28, 2007 at 3:18PM

We spend so much time pushing our bodies that we forget about flexing our muscles in ways other than lifting the stroller out of the trunk seven times a day. No, we're not telling you to "just relax" for the umpteenth time. Nor are we signing you up for the next yoga class at your local gym -- though that's not a bad idea (cough, cough). This time, we're making you get a massage. A deep-tissue or full-body fixer-upper can cost you a well-rubbed arm and a leg, so do some research on what exactly you want and need in terms of general massage techniques, such as Swedish or Rolfing, before you go. If you're up for a little DIY action, click through some user-friendly tutorials on fast fixes for built-up tension and stress. Then when your partner comes home, bargain for a massage trade-off where you each give each other a back rub.
