Favourite Things Friday

More FTFs over at Mrs P's blog

This week its all about the feet. No! I do not have a foot fetish, but I love a foot massage.

I remember the first time I had reflexology at a spa day and it was the most wonderful thing! I am very ticklish and didn't expect to like it at all but I always try out a variety of treatments and Oh My!

I don't have it as often as I would like but if I'm at a spa its the thing I must have. I once had the most amazing man at Henlow Grange and I remember floating back to the room and telling my friend I wanted to marry Roger. All because he had done such wonderful things to my feet!

I'm not sure about the health benefits its supposed to have, I just love the feeling. I nearly always end up dozing off and I think drooling a little bit but I try to pretend that doesn't happen.

Unfortunately with the good comes bad and I've had one bad treatment. I was at a resort in Turkey for a week a few years ago and spent most of the day in the spa, it was far too hot for me at the beach. Well the guy doing it was a Russian Grant Mitchell (soap character for those that don't know Eastenders) and it was so painful! I was whimpering and trying to pull my feet away from him for the whole hour while he yanked them back.

Yet despite the pain, I didn't want to say anything! I didn't want to make a fuss! I know, I'm a pratt!

In spite of that experience it is still the best treatment I've ever had, I must get my act together and go and get a session booked soon.....

ps. not my foot in the pic, random image from the web.

Ahh now that's a coincidence this week! I must say I agree with you, a foot massage -done properly- is fabulous. If it's any consolation I probably wouldn't have said anything either, so we are both pratts, lol.
I wish my feet looked like that!!!!!!

Im going to start by saying I think feet are really disgusting and I would have a complete meltdown if anyone touched mine...

But since this is about YOUR favourite thing and not MY LEAST favourite thing, I am glad that you find this relaxing and pleasurable.

PS Why didn't you marry Roger ?

I'm with Mrs. P., I don't think I could handle someone messing with my feet. But recently I had pressure therapy on my shoulder. Oh wow! It was wonderful. If your foot massage is half as good as that, then I can see why they work for you.

I like a nice foot massage now and then too. It's definitely one of the perks of having a massage therapist in my family. Until I had one, I couldn't imagine what the fuss was about, but done right, they really are wonderful!

I've never had a foot massage either but I would give it a go if the chance was there!

I like a foot massage, but not pressure therapy as my feet are painful. I love a full aromatherapy massage - bliss!
