Michele's Makeup Blog

I love makeup!  And whether you love makeup or not, chances are you wear it at least sometimes.  Don't you want to make sure you're getting the best value for your $$$?  That's what this makeup blog is all about. 
I try products and services and give you an honest review.  From drug stores to department stores, I try different brands at different price points to give you the scoop. 

A Little About My Perspective...
- Quality is more important than quantity.
- Just because it costs more doesn't mean it's better.
- Multitasking products are a very good thing.
- Have fun...if a look doesn't work a little soap and water makes it all better.

My First (and definitely not my last) Hot Stone Massage...
Last Friday afternoon when I got off work for the day I did something I've wanted to do for years.  I got a Hot Stone Massage at BJ Grand Salon and Spa!

I admit, I was a little nervous about it but more than that I was excited!  Ingrid was very cool and explained everything to me before we got started. 

You go into a private room, and you get to pick the scent of the oil they'll use for your massage.  There were probably 7 scents to choose from, and they are actually in candle form to start then melt into the oil they use for your massage.  Then Ingrid left the room while I got undressed and on the massage table.  It's a big, cushy table, and there's a sheet and a towel to cover you up.  In fact, during the entire massage the only part of your body that isn't covered is the part she's massaging.  I was concerned about that going in, but it's done in a very respectful and discreet way. 

So the massage itself is a combination of massage with her hands and massage with the hot stones.  The heat and the pressure of the smooth stones feels amazing!  Especially this time of year when it's cold, it just warms you up from head to toe.  If there's a particular part of your body you'd like her to focus on you just tell her.

Apparently they even have small stones they can use on your face to help relieve sinus issues that so many of us have this time of year.  I don't know why I waited so many years to do this!  Now that I have, I will definitely be going back for another one.  I have never been so relaxed as I was when I left BJ Grand Salon & Spa that day.  I even noticed my muscles felt more loose for 2-3 days after the massage.

If you're not quite ready to commit to a full body hot stone massage, you can start on a smaller scale.  If you're having a manicure or pedicure at BJ Grand Salon & Spa, you can add hot stone therapy to get a taste of what it's like. 

I just received a BJ Grand Salon & Spa gift certificate for my birthday, and I think I may just use it for another Hot Stone Massage!
