I’ve only ever had four massages in my life. The first one was complimentary while staying at a Mexican resort with Albert and his family a few years ago. It was a very magical moment. I could NOT believe I’d gone 20 years without having one after it was over! The massages that followed were all special treats for myself when I knew I’d been overworking my body. Having been a dancer and an athlete my whole life, I was used to overexerting myself without much self-care…and constantly pushing through discomfort. During my first massage, the masseuse actually asked me if I’d been injured in a car wreck because my shoulders and low back were so messed up. That was a wake up call. So, I started to attempt to splurge every several months on a massage and be nicer to my body. And, they were always really wonderful, don’t get me wrong…but it wasn’t until I went to a massage therapist at the MUSC Wellness Center this week through the LocateYourCare app that my mind was blown from the experience.
LocateYourCare is a digital health platform that delivers on-demand healthcare by directly connecting patients and healthcare providers for services like Massage Therapy, Chiropractic Care, and Dentistry. The app is currently live in both Atlanta and Charleston where you can find, book, and pay for these services all with just a click! Simply put in your location as well as the time/date you’d like your service, and LocateYourCare will match you with the closest, accredited, high quality provider that other users have personally seen and rated. Now, that’s what I’m talking about. Only providers with a consistent high rating are allowed to remain on the platform! So you’re guaranteed a great service.
I will never, ever bullshit you when it comes to self-care. The guy who I got paired with for a deep tissue massage was the REAL DEAL! Not only did he discuss anatomy with me during the massage to let me know what he was doing, but he even showed me exercises to do at home to help with my tight hips! It was, hands down, the best massage I’ve ever had and I will 100% be using the LocateYourCare app to book a service like this again!
Are you in need of some self-care, too?
