“Our body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. “- Buddha
Life is about balance. Everyday life, work demands, motherhood (or fatherhood), bills, getting sick, house chores and what’s in between. Once in a while, it matters to just pause and close our eyes. We all need a stress-free zone where we can take a break and recharge.
There is a hideaway that has become my favorite escape if I want a physical retreat. A visit to my massage therapist for a full body massage.
Meet Mirtha, a licensed Remedial Massage Therapist. I met her five years ago. Since then and until now, her touch has been a refuge. While I go for the therapeutic, swedish and hot stone, hubby prefers the deep tissue. I love the smell of peppermint on my neck and forehead and the feel of coconut oil on my body. Chirping birds and waterfalls as soundtrack make me temporarily forget about my routines and often lead me to short power nap.
Mirtha customizes her massage depending on what I feel everytime. Most of the time, muscles on my shoulders and upper back are tensed because of too much sitting in front of the computer. Once in a while, there’s a bit of pain on my thigh after long distance biking or on my lower back due to prolonged standing.
It is important to go to a therapist who understands your body. Someone you will feel comfortable with. Mirtha works around a person’s level of comfort. She keeps track and she cares. No wonder she has maintained a circle of regular clients who stick with her wherever she goes.
Her place provides a relaxing ambience for tired senses. Newly-renovated and tastefully decorated.
Mirtha welcomes new clients and does direct billing on major insurance. In my case, I am blessed that my husband’s work insurance covers massage. Mirtha is flexible in scheduling after work hours which suits me well.
Located at the south part of the city, close to St Mary, St Anne and St Vital area, Mirtha’s sanctuary is family-friendly and has a ramp for people who have disabilities. She works in the comfort of a massage clinic that she personally owns and manages– St George Remedial Massage Therapy, 262 St George Road.
Mirtha is a native of Ecuador and speaks also her native tounge, Spanish and can be reached at 204 997-6572.
“Love and take care of your body, breathe and take things easy”– she would always remind me. Always with positive encouragement and gracious. Muchas Gracias Mirtha!
