I had a pretty good work out session with John Salgado this afternoon. My stamina is awful, however, and my knee has not improved very much at all. After my work out, I went to get a massage at Wu Lim Qi Gong Master, 179 Grand St (between Baxter St & Centre Market Pl) in Chinatown. It had great reviews on Yelp so I thought I’d give it a try. Jack, the masseur, was amazing. I was a bundle of knots so it was a pretty painful session but I’m so glad I went. As Jack said: “No pain, no gain”. So was I frightened? Yes, a little bit…. but I’ve had some fairly lousy massages recently, so I was getting desperate. Clearly, my back and legs still need a lot of work but I have hope that my knees will ultimately benefit from further Qi Gong massages. Woo Hoo!
I have to say that it was gratifying when the masseur said that it was clear I work out. Was he referring to all the knots or that I actually had some muscles? I prefer to think it was the latter.
I am including a video on how to do some facial massages for relaxation by andrewn2healthplitt. I was doing the facial massages as he spoke and thought it was pretty good. Enjoy!
