I came back to MPower and tried Karrie T, a new massage therapist that apparently returned after a 2-year stint in Austria. It's good she came back, because she was WONDERFUL. There aren't enough words to describe how amazing I felt after my Swedish massage.\r
Firstly, she was so attentive -- I showed her the problem areas of my back where I was feeling pain, and she knew exactly what to do to treat it, explaining to me why i was aching and how she was helping. Also, I wanted her to focus mainly on my back, shoulders, neck, and arms (not my legs) and she graciously complied. I explained to her that I had a herniated disc, and she immediately said that she would be gentle in my neck area, which she was. \r
My favorite part of the massage was when she used a lot of pressure in her hands on my lower back and carried the pressure up to my shoulders, which felt so awesome. I came in with an exorbitant amount of tension and left feeling as light as a feather. I remember telling her my back and shoulders felt a bit like jelly afterwards--- It felt like I was floating! \r
Also- Karrie had such a soothing demeanor and presence. At the end of my massage, she held her fingers to the sides of my neck for about thirty seconds without moving, and when I asked her about it afterwards, she said she was radiating positive thoughts and healing energy --- which I LOVED and appreciated so much. It really was a luxurious experience and I definitely will be back!! \r
Thank you, Karrie!
