I am holding the Nordstrom level four credit card. However, I never exercise my benefit of a complementary spa treatment. It came across my mind of trying it out several times but I always dismissed it. Under my daughter’s encouragement, I invited her to join me. She is twenty but is more brave than me of trying out new thing. Anyhow, she fits the appointment into her busy schedule. We had lunch and shopped before our appointment. It was lovely to spend the extra time with my daughter. I wanted to tell her “l love you” again and again.
We arrived at Nordstrom spa 10 minutes early. The receptionists were welcoming and warm. After we checked in, we were lead to the changing rooms to get into our robes and waited in the parlor to start the foot baths.
It was a new experience for both of us. We took our time talking and gauging and guessing what will come next. The staff was very attentive. They were busy filling our water and gave us time to soak the feet in the warm water. We were well-pampered.
After the parlor time, the pleasant massage therapist lead us to separate treatment rooms. She politely asked me if I had any special work-ons. She also instructed me how to get on the table and where to hang the robe. With soothing music and dim lights, I was totally unwound in my relaxing massage room.
My massage started from my right leg up. She put lavender oil on her palm and worked systemicly to smoothing each muscle out of any knots. I could feel the tense escaping and i almost fell asleep. The same treatment was applied to my left leg and back torso, followed by treatment of my left arm and then right arm.
The 1-1/2 hour massage put my muscles, bones back to the right place physically, and elaborated the mood mentally. The total experience was amazingly refreshing. I felt so much better than before I went in. The spa experience was my self-investment to my health. I promised Nordstrom Spa secretly that I would come back.
