Ahhhh, it's so calm and peaceful here, in the shade with the cool breezes blowing through the trees and the sun so beautiful on the ocean.

 

Mmmmmm, love that fresh peach sorbet....the food here is so delicious and light. I can hardly wait for my massage this evening and a dip in the mineral hot springs before taking my melatonin and going to bed.

One of the things I most appreciate about this place is how they make you go for walks in the morning and cheer you on... it would be so hard to find the motivation otherwise!

I was on such a place, in 2007 in Italy just weeks before WD hit. But still no symptoms and it felt great! Though it is trange that some of my greatest holidays from the last years were in fact in my symptom-free periods after a CT, but I know I could also feel great in my pre-PAxil period.

One of my best hlidays was in Egypt in 1995, years before my first little white devil in a pill strip. And I still remember the beautiful beaches and the terrific weather!

If, just if I will ever get my body and mind back, I will reward myself with a low-budget trip to a beautiful place. With sun, blue sea, good food and a relaxeing atmosphere.

Just waiting for that corner moment...

Adding a little extra something to the peach smoothie, or drinking it straight up?

 

Think I'll go to the meditation class... although, changing channels has been working great for me.

I tried a float pod thing the other day in Phoenix area (forget name). It was relaxing until I got the highly salinated (epsom salts) water in my eyes and then it was painful. It is supposed to help w/deeper sleep (theta?) and pain. I think I slept a little better that night. Not something I could do regularly @ $70/hr. but I'm always looking for natural options. I believe it was later that day when I realized I was in protracted WD when I read post.

Possible addition to that dream spa.

I was just thinking what would happen to me in a sensory deprivation float chamber... My boyfriend wanted to give me a session for my birthday last year. Right now I wonder if it would create anxiety for me. I hear you can hallucinate. It's good to hear it was not scary for you!

Oh, the peach smoothie with a dash of protein powder, please!

 

Our lovely mineral springs contain lots of magnesium. You can lounge in the part that's shaded by willow trees or the part that's in the sun. It's a geological miracle, always at perfect bathtub temperature, gently bubbling.

 

At night, the mineral springs are candlelit, in case you want a restful bath before bed. And our helpful attendants are ready with fluffy towels, pure cotton bathrobes, and dry flip-flops for your tender feet.

Still trying to navigate the site and didn't see these replies.

When I read about protracted w/d after doing the float, I thought the same thing --glad I didn't get TOO relaxed and have flight mode kick in. I know how it feels when I wake at 5am in panic, tachy, as if I just had a night terror but recall nothing. Would have been ugly in a closed float pod, slippery w the magnesium (I assume), low lighting. Prescription for disaster, but then we're familiar w that.

The info at float place said that effects are less pronounced first time for various reasons, mostly b/c people don't fully relax due to boredom, mind racing, etc. ( Don't they go hand-in-hand?)

I've been reading on diff sites and am AMAZED at all of the work you've done, AS and Gianna . Mindboggling. Literally.

I've treated my horses better than I have myself over the years and look back now wondering what on earth I was thinking. Bought a CHI Machine years ago for horses and have used on myself recently. It may be useful in THE SPAAAAH. ;)

Alto... you mentioned recently that if you had all the answers, you would make millions of dollars in the stock market.

 

I want you to promise that as soon as that becomes a reality, you will open a recovery spa of our dreams. I'm holding you to it, whether you promise or not!

 

Today would be a perfect day to go to that spa... okay... closing my eyes and going there. And you said it would be free to all SA members... you're a gem!

 

A lovely snack would be lightly salted wild rice cakes with fresh almond butter from Whole Foods, with sliced banana on top. Of course, those who are so inclined would be able to have hot dogs also. I mean... that's only fair.

 

Dreaming... dreaming... amazing... after that massage, my back feels like I'm 20 again! Going to run 10 miles now... see ya later!

Ahhhh, what a wonderful, fabulous, mental vision to embrace!

 

Alto, you need to be a writer for various tourist resorts. You have me sold. :)

 

 

I'm feeling very drained ATM and thus, would love to indulge in all that is being offered except I'd like to request at least two attendants (lol). I wish to feel ultimately spoiled, nurtured and pampered to the max!

 

 

What about reflexology? Is that in the package? Sorry if I missed reading this in the brochure but I'm on overload ATM.

 

Summer, hope you aren't carrying a bottle of tobasco sauce in your purse. :D I'd perfer to savor my peach smoothie with a dash of protein powder that Alto has provided rather than a dash of hot sauce thank you very much. :D

 

 

I couldn't leave this thread without first throwing at tease your way Ms. Summer. A little humour added into relaxation equation never hurts.

 

 

Okay, breathing in the beauty of the vision. I am one with the Universe. I am a Goddess of the Supreme Relaxation Response.

 

 

Goodnight Gods and Goddesses. May you feel many moments of peace, healing and stillness.

Punar... I wouldn't dream of carrying around tabasco sauce in my purse. And, I wouldn't dream of ruining your day at the Spa!

 

The Spa of your dreams contains no worries or anxiety... that's why it's so wonderful to go there. I felt my entire body relax as I typed this...

 

Maybe if we all chipped in $1.00 a month?

Ms. Punar, you may request any number of attendants to carry you in a shaded sedan chair to the hot springs, if you wish.

 

Reflexology? Absolutely!

Wow!! Now that's what I call "service extraordinaire!"

 

 

BTW, I just finished having a rage purging session with our resident DR. Phil. Now its time for other forms of therapeutic interventions.

 

 

Dear Attendants, please immediately carry me off to the Hot Springs area as per Alto's instructions.

Wonderful! I can now release all ruminations of tabasco sauce. Aww........I'm in a cool, tabasco-free environment.

Yes, it is therapeutic to even type out such thoughts. The power of the mind never ceases to amaze me!

 

Maybe if we all chipped in $1.00 a month?

 

NOw that's affordable ....within my current budget.

 

 

BTW, how was your massage at the other spa Ms. Summer? Hope you had a wonderfully relaxing day!

Ayurvedic massage with special hot oils onto '3rd eye'. Had this once at Two Bunch Palms in Desert Hot Springs. Amazing relaxation. Drenched in hot oils, 'womblike' is the only description I can think of, not that I remember what that was like!
