What I didn't realize when I started training with The Motion Room is they have two secret weapons.
The first one's name is Bee and she has given me the best massage. Ever. In my life. On this planet. No exaggeration.
Bee does Trigger Point Therapy which is followed by an Aromatherapy massage. The treatment is done immediately after my workout so I'm not drowning in lactic acid and unable to move the next day.
Bee goes deep. I'm talking climbing up on my back on all fours and using her hands and knees to dig into my uber tight hamstrings and back. She pulls and twists me in curious ways, stretching my crooked spine in pleasurable pain, my out-of-shape legs into muscle-lengthening contortions. It kills, in a good way, if you know what I mean.
I walk out of those sessions like I have taken a heavy dose of a happy drug. Maybe this is what it feels like to be on ecstasy?
Bee is originally from Thailand where she first studied massage. Wanderlust took her to Dubai, then Bahrain where she scored a job at the Ritz Carlton.
While at the Ritz, she worked on the royal body of the King of Bahrain. If she's good enough for the Royal Family, she's good enough for this tired, achy mom in Toronto.
Secret Weapon Number Two at The Motion Room? They also run the Kidz 360 Learning Activity Centre in the next room over, which creates specialized Learning Through Play programming for kids while you work out and get worked on.
Best Trigger Point Therapy on the planet, workouts to make you feel better and an Active Learning Center for your kids. These guys make it hard for moms to make excuses for not taking care of ourselves. You should check it out. I'm there on Saturdays.
