This year, I plan to take care of myself. This will include a monthly visit to the spa; get my nails done, that massage, steam bath, all the works. I gave myself a head start to this monthly ritual and got pampered (or something like it) last month. I shared my experience in the Full Woman Magazine, a pull out from the Saturday Monitor.

They say, your body is your temple and that, just like your car, it needs servicing every now and then. A few weekends ago, I decided to give myself a treat. I got my nails done, my eyebrows threaded, and sat in a steam bath.

It was unisex steam bath, which I found rather uncomfortable especially when I was left alone with a gentleman whose glistening abs I couldn’t take my eyes off. I would never have imagined that a steam bath could get any steamier until the gentleman decided to do push-ups right in front of me! I literally shot out of the steam bath. I needed some air!

Next on my pamper-yourself list was the massage rooms. I was surprised and a little disappointed that I got a woman, but I figured it would be just the break I needed after the steamy experience in the steam bath. She was quite pleasant, started with my feet, legs, thighs… By this time I was so relaxed I closed my eyes. Until I felt her start to knead my breasts!

Now, I am not ashamed to admit that that was my first “professional” massage and that I am therefore unaware of the massage protocol. It was very uncomfortable for me having a woman (who is not a doctor) knead my breasts. I think she sensed it and asked me to lie on my stomach shortly. She worked my neck area, shoulder blades, my back, the back of my thighs and legs until I relaxed, then she got to my buttocks! That was my cue to ask her where to go to get a facial.

The facial experience turned out well and it ended without event. It made me feel better, made me forget about the kneading and glistening abs, temporarily.
I would love to get another massage and I will, after my research. This way, I’ll know what to expect.

5 Thoughts to “Of unisex steam baths and women kneading my boobs”

  1. Olive Banange…The Article is good and i conquer with you…The reverse is true “Hot ladies should not also be allowed in a Unisex Sauna” I don’t think i would stand that as well.

    1. Ahahaha Thank you! I agree, it be quite distracting 🙂

  2. I can’t disagree more with the hot bodies in the steam room … bring ’em on! The more beauty, the better. I do understand the uncomfortable nature of one’s first massage though. Read my piece linked below for a related chuckle.
