I used to get regular massages but it’s been a couple of years and I’ve been in need of some relief. I went in to the chiropractors office yesterday morning for a half hour massage followed by an adjustment. Best upper body massage I’ve ever had and that is saying something! For the first time in months my chiropractor was finally able to get my neck adjusted.
Jennifer really worked the sides and back of my neck as well as shoulders, back and hips. I was feeling the effects before I got back home and after lunch I couldn’t stay awake. It’s important to drink plenty of water following a massage since it’s a form of detox. Same with chiropractic. I had my Yeti full of lemon water and finished that.
Finally gave up about 3:20 pm and went to lay down. And slept for four hours! Oh, my word! The nap was great, I wasn’t that hungry for dinner but made sure I had plenty of water throughout the evening. About 1:00 am I was finally tired enough to go to bed for the rest of the night. I am sore everywhere Jennifer worked on me but it’s a good sore and I can turn my neck without it snapping and popping like breakfast cereal.
I’ll make sure I don’t get too enthusiastic about cleaning or moving furniture or anything on that order for today and I’ll continue drinking my lemon water.
