So setting up our new Tumblr blog and they say to post a photo. Meet Brad! Ahh Green Spa is his baby, even though technically I “own” it. (The wife owns everything, right? lol) He’s been a licensed massage therapist for over 10 years now and gave me my very first massage when we met, almost 6 years ago!
We met online. (Match.com anyone?) After a week of spending HOURS on the phone, he drove up to see me. We were able to spend the day together and he just happened to have his massage table with him in the back of his car. He offered to give me a massage and I thought, “Sure buddy. Like I haven’t heard that one before!” But what the heck. If he does anything stupid, my jack russell Mae would eat him! haha So he explained the draping and how I would never be more uncovered than I was comfortable with…and he was a perfect gentleman! (One of many reasons I decided to keep him.) BEST MASSAGE EVER!!! And I’m not just saying that cuz I married him! haha He’s very knowledgeable about body mechanics and how we use (or mis-use) our bodies and how the muscles compensate for our poor posture and bad body habits.
For those of you who may never have had a massage or wonder about a male therapist, know that they are first and foremost professionals. Like going to see a doctor. They aren’t judging your body or “checking you out.” They are looking and feeling your muscles and where they connect and deciding how best to relieve the tension within.
I thank my lucky stars every day that I met Brad. He introduced me to the most fabulous, least invasive and relaxing way to fix my body with my cramped shoulders and tight neck. And he’s helped many others too! <3
