One of the things that I promised Cary for his birthday was to give him a massage. Today, I got everything all set up and ready to go.
Over the past few years, I have been stocking up on neat books, herbal hot packs and other massage supplies. Look around, and gather them up when you find them on sale. That's my motto.
I found the massage and reflexology DVD sets at Barnes and Nobel in Bend for $5.00 each a few years ago. Almond Oil is a good massage oil, and you can buy it at the grocery store for around $7.00
This herbal pack can be warmed up in the microwave ... well, so can the eye pack. You can also stick them in a Ziplock bag and place in the freezer, if you want them to be cold.
Reflexology doesn't look hard to do. I never really know if I am hitting the wrong internal organ though. I just hope that it is the thought that counts in situations such as these.
Those boxed sets come with lots of tips, and the DVD's even show you how to make aromatherapy potions.
You don't have to have a massage bed (the lady in the DVD shows how to give massages on the floor). I bought mine several years ago at Costco with my Christmas bonus, when I was still working. It seems so long ago, back when I had disposable income.
So, there you go! Put some soft music on the stereo, shut the blinds, and you've got a massage waiting to happen.
