How many of you love to be pampered? I know that I certainly do from time to time and I especially love a great massage! I had a massage that definitely exceeded my expectations on New Year’s Day that I am so excited to share all about with you!
On New Year’s Eve I went to an awesome event at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point. Not only did we have an amazing buffet dinner at the resort, we also got to see one of our favorite 80’s cover bands, Flashback Heart Attack and stay in a fabulous room! See a few of my photos from this dinner and show below. When I awoke on New Year’s Day, we proceeded to order room service prior to my massage I had plans to receive at the Laguna Cliffs Marriot Resort & Spa located in Dana Point, California at 25135 Park Lantern.
I made my way over to the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Spa on the property for my 1:45 appointment and was greeted by two lovely gentlemen that checked me in for my time slot and led me to the locker room to prepare for my pampering.
After setting my own code on my locker and slipping on my robe and slippers I exited the locker room and arrived in a pure relaxation room with a gorgeous fireplace outside to wait for my masseuse to take me on a 90 minute serenity massage journey of pure relaxation!
As I settled in a comfy chair with an Orange Coast magazine to read, Geraldine, my massage therapist approached me to take me back to the massage room and to address any specific areas of pain I may have or any areas that need extra attention to work out knots and other items of the sort.
Geraldine had a warm and friendly smile and allowed me to snuggle in to the massage table as she stepped out for a brief moment prior to the start of my massage journey. When she came back, I was in for a great treat. Geraldine was the perfect masseuse in that she literally got into every crevice of every muscle I have that had been aching from all of the constant fitbitting and elliptical machine I use daily. The massage oils and scents available for purchase at the spa were fabulous as well and the 90 minutes flew by way too quickly!
As I was getting ready to leave the massage room, still in a dream like state from pure relaxation and tranquility, Geraldine was explaining to me different stretches I could do to alleviate lower back pain I have from too much walking and exercise. We do not realize how important stretching is sometimes on a daily basis and I greatly appreciated Geraldine’s advice for how to stretch out certain aching muscles daily.
As I checked out with the people at the front desk, I knew that I would be coming back to visit this spa again soon! I seriously cannot wait to visit and bring my friends!
