I’ve been thrust into the Blarchive several times recently, for various reasons. You should visit. It’s a blast! I just saw my own wedding photo, which was a bit unexpected.
I remember joining Blogdial, receiving my paper hat along with the instructions: Post Hard. Post Often.
Here is my call, to any lurking Blogdialians, to read a random page from the Blarchive and please post something, anything that comes to mind after your visit. Mary13, Claus, CaptainD, a hymn in g to nann, barrie, alison and all the others out there…
Anyway, I have knots in some muscles the size of golf balls. On asking a wise owl for her best remedy, she suggested the following:
1. Find someone who likes having their hands all oiled up and likes touching you.
2. Find a selection of very smooth river stones, slightly flattened is best and not too large to cup in the oily person’s hand.
3. Boiling water
4. Thirty minutes
poor boiling water in a bowl and slide the stones in. Let sit for three minutes then poor the water off and cover stones with a hot towel. Take off your shirt, pick up the bowl of hot stones and approach your potential masseuse with a beseeching expression and little puppy noises.
The masseuse oils up their hands, oils of your back and shoulders, takes a stone in each hand skates those babies repeatedly over all the sore spots. When the stones go cold, grab two more hot ones.
This is without a doubt the best and most wonderful massage technique I have ever used.
Even if you don’t have knots, I recommend this whole heartedly.
