I was lucky enough to receive a massage from one of our fabulous Gaia Fit Charleston boot campers last month. Oh! It felt so good! Afterwards, I had to ask myself why I don't get these more often. Then I thought about how many times I took a spa gift card and used it for hair services rather then massage services to save money, be more practical, feel less guilt...
The massage brought some needed awareness to my body and what I had been neglecting in the recovery process. Yes, I foam roll my legs. Yes, I hydrate. Yes, I get a recovery meal in. But, massage? Awareness to my back and shoulders? Nope and Nope. Kyli, our fabulous massage therapist brought great awareness to my shoulders, neck and back and... AGH, posture! What I used to take such great pride in was slowly curving, rounding, shrinking and who knows what forward. Well as any good professional would, in her straight forward, sweet and calm voice, Kyli put it to me and gave me some tips and strategies to fight the posture blues. And yes, every time I see her, I find myself straightening up and putting those shoulders back into place. If only, she could follow me around all day!? Kyli?? Can you???
Well, Kyli is here to tell us how it is and she is sharing a special deal with our Gaia Fit Boot Campers! Charleston, take advantage!
