I work totally online and from home.
I sit at a computer 8-5 everyday.
I should work out, stretch and move around afterwards. I typically don’t though. I get so tired after being at a screen all day. I just want to read, smoke my pipe or watch some TV. My back and neck obviously hurt all the time. I went to a chiropractor and that didn’t help. A friend of mine highly recommended getting a massage on the regular. I looked around and the only massage parlor was a high end salon in town. So that meant it wasn’t just a body massage shop, they also offered eyebrow threading, sugaring for leg hair, waxing for the bikini area and henna for body art. I looked at pictures of the store and it was definitely geared towards ladies. The whole inside was pinks, whites and grays. All the salon workers were female. I was a bit embarrassed to initially call and make a massage appointment. My back and neck hurt too bad though. I started out with a massage appointment right at closing to avoid a crowd. The salon is girly and my masseuse is female. She is wonderful though. My kinks were worked out within the house session. I felt good as new. I now do a two week massage appointment when they can fit me in. I am no longer bothered by the other services they offer. The message is too good and benefits me too much to stop going. I have even thought of taking my buddies with me so they can get massages too.
