I can't believe it's been months since I last posted anything here. I know, I know I've been pretty secretive about my life recently but I guess I've just been too busy. However, meeting three bloggers whose blogs I have read and followed made me decide to grace cupscupscups again with my presence. Hahahaha. Honestly, a lot has changed since July. For one, my sister Fanny of Dr. Strangekind is now in Amsterdam taking her Master's. My little brother Andy Boy is leaving for Nepal next month. His trip is also academic in nature but will only keep him away from home for a week. I'm still working at Sun Life and writing whenever the mood strikes (or whenever somebody needs me to cover an event). And it is because Female Network needed me to cover one event that has led to this post.
Today, I had a chance to try foot reflexology for the first time. I'm a huge fan of body massages but I have never really had anyone pay a lot of attention to my feet. After today's session though, I think it's time I give them a little more love.
The entire experience started with a lovely 20-minute foot soak. Most spas I've been to only soak your feet in warm water with soap bubbles but at The Reflex Zone, the soak solution actually turned into a gelatinous mix. It felt really good and squishy. According to the girl attending to my feet, the solution is supposed to be antiseptic.
Following the soak was the arrival of Florence (I wonder if I got his name right), the Malaysian-trained physical therapist assigned to my large and often battered feet. He applied real pressure to my flat feet and revealed early on that I had a low tolerance for pain. After a while though, my feet got used to it and I event felt the areas where crystalline supposedly built up.
And by pressing certain points on my feet, Florence was able to single out one of the biggest problems I have with my body. Ah, I don't think I want to share that but if you know me, you could guess. I'm not sure I can tell you much more than this, at least until I get my articles for FN done.
Just stay tuned.
