I am not unlike most of you, in that when I make a massage appointment, I count down the seconds until the therapist will be getting his/her hands on me. This particular time, I had waited too long to schedule my massage, so my shoulders were shot (mistake #1). I had the opportunity to sign up to try out a new massage technique, that I assumed would help my shoulders (mistake #2). The plan was to kill two birds with one stone. Because, as I mentioned, I was long overdue, it also meant I was super short on patience.
