It was one of those days. You know, those days that your body, mind, and soul need a boost.
And the perfect solution to that need is a spa day. What I needed was a full-body experience that would assuage the spirit and take me to nirvana. Yep, that’s what I needed, no question.
Nelson Salon & Spa on Ellsworth Road in West Hartford, Connecticut, was the answer.
This full-service med spa is a welcoming paradise. You are greeted with a cup of foamed-top cappuccino.
Ahhhh! Excellent start to my day.
The foyer is a glitzy, sparkling gateway. A chandelier dominates the area over the butter-soft and comfy black leather couches. You sink into their cushy goodness and only reluctantly leave their embrace.
But it’s only to move on to an even better experience.
The plan is to indulge in a 90-minute therapeutic massage and get a luxurious facial at this popular salon and med spa. There is a lot to pick from. Haircuts, waxing. Brazilian bikini, permanent hair removal, Botox, laser treatments from the medical director on staff.
Benefits of A Good Massage
But I am here for the full-body massage benefits where my muscles relax, the tension my neck seeps away and my mind floats away to paradise
The payoff of a therapeutic massage is huge. If you have never had a massage, and there are many different types of massages, you are missing out on a mind, body, and soul experience that will lift your spirits to new heights. You have to try it so you can understand what it means to detox, de-stress and relax.
A massage can be applied with the hands, forearms, fingers, elbows, knees, feet, or a massage device, according to Wikipedia. And depending on the application and technique used, a massage can be used to promote relaxation and well-being. It is also beneficial in treating sports injuries and other problems affecting the musculature of the body such as postural misalignment and many painful conditions.
So check out Nelson Salon & Spa in West Hartford, the place to get the best massage. You will enjoy a wonderful experience and keep going back again and again.
My Reasons For Reading
Whenever I was missing, my sisters and brother, cousins, aunts and uncle and even neighborhood friends, never had to think twice about where I would be found. They knew I was reading.
I could always be discovered sitting at the cellar door reading books, probably dreaming of a future filled with unimagined possibilities, and soaking up the sun. It didn’t matter what the reading material was. Anything I got my hands on was good enough for me. I might have been deeply engrossed in a comic book, a Nancy Drew mystery novel, or any of the scores of books that I could borrow from the mobile library truck that visited my small rural community. It could have also been one of my older sister’s school books. Nothing was off my reading list.
Why I Read
Maybe it was because I grew up poor, in a rural community where only my imagination could take me places filled with hope, places that were more exciting. I am never happier than when I am lost in a book, transported into new and exciting worlds. That interest continues today.
Who Sparked That Interest?
For the life of me, I can’t recall who lit the reading bug in me. I wish I could. I would go back and thanks them for this unending joy, this gift of exploring the imagination and seeing the worlds that other fertile minds have created.
Over the years, that spark of reading has only grown brighter and bigger. I have subscribed to monthly book clubs, have spent thousands of dollars in bookstores, and an insane number of hours in public libraries.
This is the state of my library today. When I last moved, the weight of the books was more than the rest of the content of the house combined.
Recently, I have gotten rid of a few, but to me, it’s still a pretty good collection. Within the pages of books lies the knowledge that will guide each of us to our destiny.
