Being a geek is hard. You’re hunched over all day over your desk, balanced on a Swiss balance ball, living off of coffee and more coffee, and everybody needs a day off once in awhile.
It’s been awhile since I’ve contributed to the (written) part of my blog “living in Paris,” but this afternoon I discovered why I needed to yesterday : massages, yoga, massages..
Do I really need to insist on why this is fabulous ?
If you’re in Paris or making the trip over, the Espace Osada is having an open-doors February 4th and 5th which means 10€ for any of the workshops and 30€ for any of the personal services, like…massages !!! 😀
I’ve never been there before but a friend is giving Thai massages on Saturday (he’s gone to study Thai massage every year for awhile now, and I got to test an oil massage. The only down point – I fell ASLEEP for 3 minutes and couldn’t believe I had missed 3 minutes of pure heaven.)
They also have workshops and personal sessions to discover sophrology, an interesting technique that I hadn’t heard of before moving to France but that seems..interesting. According to Wikipedia (because Wikipedia is always 100% unfalteringly true), sophrology is “a personal development method that is designed to reduce stress and promote mental and physical well-being, through easy-to-do mental and physical exercises that can be done any time anywhere.”
BONUS : There are also workshops and personal sessions for shiatsu — because who doesn’t want to be able to heal having a few too many Thursday/Friday-night mojitos by pressing on their big toe ?
