I went for a massage tonight.
It was amazing.
After a crazy weekend of work stuff and lifting boxes and setting up booths and taking down booths, I decided that the knots in my back just had to go. Then I remembered the gift card and I was set!
They were able to get me in tonight, thank goodness. :)
I like how they sit down with you right when you get there to review your problem areas and if you have medical problems that would affect your massage.
Wow. This gal? AMAZING. I told her my problem areas and what I did all weekend and she said she wasn’t going to do a “frufu girly” massage because I need something more like what athletes get. Whatever, lady, just get these knots out!
Oh boy did she! I haven’t been this relaxed in weeks. I even took a picture of my relaxed face immediately post-massage and tweeted about it. I’m determined to keep it going!
Apparently, a massage once a month can be submitted for reimbursement under a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). They also give you a discount on any additional massages you get if you’re signed up for the health and wellness program through them.
I have my doubts as to whether or not it’s covered, even though they said they haven’t had it declined. Sometimes they have to get a doctor to sign off, which I’m not surprised by. I think my doctor would approve it, but I’m not sure.
The damage? $49 a month – that is almost $600 a year. We definitely have other uses for the FSA money we put away, so I’m not sure. The idea of having a monthly massage to keep the stress level down really is appealing, even though the cost is kind of high.
Thoughts? Am I crazy to think about spending that kind of money on a massage?
