Does anyone else suffer from endless Random Thoughts during a facial or massage making it nigh on impossible to relax during a Relaxation Treatment?
Here’s how a recent facial went down with me…
The Lovely Therapist: “Just lie down, shut your eyes and relax.”
Me: “Ok” Lie down, shut eyes and The Brain goes off on one…
This therapist is so lovely. She seems to really know her stuff.
Oh, she had onions for lunch.
Oh Gawd, I had that Bean Salad.
Not sure about that music. It’s a bit loud. And Whale-y.
This bed is so cosy and warm. Wonder if it’s an electric blanket.
What’s that she’s putting on my forehead?
I wish she’d put a hairband on me. I wasn’t planning to wash my hair until Wednesday.
Does she really need to put the cleanser on to my ears?
This bed is too hot. Should I ask if she can turn the heat down? But then I might get cold.
I wish she’d apply a bit more pressure.
This thong must have shrunk in the wash. I wonder if The Lovely Therapist would notice if I fumble around and try to de-wedgie?
Why did she ask if I’m concerned about dehydrated skin?
Do I have dehydrated skin?
What is dehydrated skin?
I really wish I hadn’t had that Bean Salad for lunch.
Why didn’t I take off my jeans before she started? They are so tight. I wonder if The Lovely Therapist would notice if I fumble around and try to undo the button?
Is she painting my face now?
Oh, keep doing that. No! Don’t stop.
Why does she need so much running water?
Is she washing dishes?
Oh, it was for this lovely hot towel. It’s really hot.
Arggg! I think I’ve got third-degree burns.
Oh, that’s nice.
It’s gone really quiet. Should I say something? Holiday plans? But I don’t think I can speak with this towel over my mouth.
I wish she’d apply a bit less pressure.
Tell me she’s not just rubbed that bloody oil into my scalp!
She bloody well has! Now I’ll need to wash my hair tonight.
Oh, what’s that spritz-y thing for? It’s really cold.
I’m glad I didn’t ask her to turn off the electric blanket.
It smells lovely though. What is that? Mint? No, it’s Sage, or maybe it’s Basil.
I’m hungry. Think I’ll phone in a pizza tonight.
Lovely Therapist: “I’m just applying a serum and then I’ll finish off with this new day cream – it contains Hyaluronic Acid”
What is serum?
And what is Hyaluronic Acid?
It sounds painful.
Lovely Therapist: “That’s you now. How did you enjoy your facial?”
Me: “Very relaxing, thank you.”
