Taking Care of Business. And Your Legs

Ever since I’ve been in Philadelphia, I’ve been looking for a place to get a good massage.  There comes a time in every runner’s life where a massage to help recoup the body during training is needed.  The massage therapist I go to in Ohio spoils me rotten and thus, I compare everyone to her.  I tried a place on South Street in February and it didn’t go over so well.  I realize it was a school, but at the same time, it physically hurt and nothing felt better after the fact.  So last week, I found a discount on Philly Dealyo for The Bamboo Spa in Springfield, PA off Baltimore Pike.  it was a half off coupon for an hour massage.  Granted, it’s a little bit of a drive and City Ave isn’t the most fun to drive down, I purchased a deal and went in on Thursday around noon.

Boy, was it a good gamble.  My legs have really been tired and sore since the long runs have been picking up.  My massage therapist hit some painful spots I didn’t know I had but was able to do some good work on my legs and back which really needed some work.  A full hour of getting the kinks worked out.  As much as I love getting worked on, the oils always do a number on my sense of smell.  I’m surprised I don’t break out with the amount of oil that’s used!  I usually end up with a second shower just to get the excess oil off!

The fact I found a place that does a good massage in Philly is a plus.  I scheduled a second one for September 18th, after I run in Rock n Roll Philadelphia for the third straight year.  Finally, something good to look forward too
