It’s that time of the year when you’ve given and given and GIVEN and now it’s full-on what about me mode. Maybe it’s just a quiet cry it in the middle of the night but it’s a “no, seriously, what the fuck about me?!”
Nothing says hell yasss me time, like some therapeutic bodywork. Massage is always my go-to self-care treat. I was excited to check out this guy Terry’s work. This is not a soft and fuzzy warm and cozy deal. This is, you got to his raw and NYC cool little private training gym, hop on his table (wear something warm and cozy it can be chilly) and he gets to work on you. No frills, just deep work.
Of course, he can also come to you. I chose to try the gym/studio because I live a few blocks away and wanted to check it out.
So, the work is VERY GOOD. Deep and sportsy – made me feel like a real athlete. He worked deep into my scapula and aching shoulder in a way I so deeply needed. I was fully dressed – in my sweats – this is not an under the towel type of thing – and he worked one body part at a time – a combo of many disciplines, strokes and styles. It was just right and exactly what my body needed. I’m excited to go back and just fully relax and focus now that I know more about Terry and his work (I am always a little in editor mode on my first try, asking questions and forgetting to focus on how things FEEL sometimes.) Even so, this work felt great.
