This week we have 105 words and must include all these words: Aghast Aquamarine Aeroplane Acted After
Agatha stood aghast at the sight of the
tumbling like a falling toy, towards the aquamarine sea. She acted fast, running to the telephone, and alerting
the shock had receded, she reflected on the chances of those on board the
She decided to wander down to the beach. Spotting something
crawling towards the shore she stopped and looked again, shading her eyes from
the bright sunlight. It was a man. She raced over to him stumbling in her
unsuitable shoes. She knelt without regard for her shantung frock. He was
alive. " My love..." she cried weeping with relief.
I was given a Massage voucher for my birthday. I've never really fancied being massaged. It has always seemed strange to me to let a total stranger get so close to me. My recent experiences receiving cancer treatment have also ALL been ouchy too. Anyway, I realised the kind friend would discover I had not used my gift as she goes to the same lady! So, with some apprehension I rang just before Christmas and made an appointment for today. Good I thought, puts it off for a bit longer.
This morning arrived. I checked myself over, I was fit and well. To the massage I must...
The massage was amazing! Diana Douglas does NO HANDS® massage. While she uses her hands to smooth on oil, the massage is done using the inner side of her forearms. The massage consists of rhythmic pressing and smoothing, with some stretching and extending. There was none of the kneading that I had feared from massage. The table had a heated pad on it and I was cocooned in towels, except for the area on which Diana was working. The massage lasted an hour and was conducted in a beautiful studio in the garden. I was given time to rest afterwards then went indoors to relax on a sofa and drink a cool glass of water.
This is a description of the ethos:
NO HANDS® Massage is deep, relaxing, rejuvenating and nourishing. During a treatment, I use the soft surfaces of my forearms rather than my hands, which allows me to effectively transfer much more of my bodyweight into the client. This enables both a deeper and more relaxing, releasing treatment than with conventional Massage.
NO HANDS Massage works – on every level: Physical Energetic Emotional Mental Spiritual
This is Massage for life, not just for the odd injury or occasional pampering, but Massage to help your journey through life.
Diana did not ask me to blog about this, and I am receiving no remuneration or reward for writing this. I am recommending this purely because after only one session I can feel the benefits. In addition to feeling relaxed, my body feels better able to function. I feel renewed. I shall definitely be returning regularly. Diana has assured me that my body will 'learn' to relax to make the massage more effective. I did struggle to stop my body tensing to 'help' lift or move limbs. I would recommend anyone who lives in or near East Northamptonshire to give this a go with Diana, who offers a first massage at a very substantial discount. Mr G has already booked up. For others, there are practitioners elsewhere in the country.
“♫ Driving home for Christmas ♫” played as Kyle flicked the cruise control. He patted his
pocket for the umpteenth time...still there. He smiled to himself as he
pictured the scene that was to come. He had everything in place: this Christmas
would be like no other.
He pulled up on the drive and then quietly
let himself in. She looked up but stayed seated. He went over and knelt beside
her. He handed her his gift. He touched the tiny head at her breast.
“ Thank you, my darling, for my son, the best
