Massages are kind of like ice cream. There are an overwhelming number of flavors to choose from, you’d try10 samples if you could, each place has their own special recipe and claim to fame, sprinkles and hot stones might be a little extra but they’re always worth it, and anyone who doesn’t like it is just weird. When you were little you chose between vanilla, chocolate and strawberry scoops, and now you’ve grown into a sophisticated eater of the frozen dessert, topping peanut butter praline gelato with blueberry cookie crunch. To make a sweet story short, if you’ve found your love for Swedish massages… it’s time to move on to a more complex universe of relaxation.
