I had no idea what I was getting into when I scheduled a massage with Nirvana - for me it was just a name out of a list of other names, and it sounded nice enough.
I had no idea it would be, truly, one of the most incredible massages I've had.
When the massage therapist finished I felt relaxed, of course, as one does. I felt happy, at peace, still, and physically quite rejuvenated. All the stuff you hear about aches and pains vanishing was true. I spent the day in Santa Fe walking, eating, experiencing, then drove home to Albuquerque, fully expecting the effects of the massage to dissipate as the day went by.
They didn't. In fact, every day since then I have felt physically just as good, mentally just as calm, and I am realizing that the back aches and the little niggling shoulder pains just are not returning.
This morning, a week later, I am still feeling peaceful and physically rejuvenated, and it occurred to me to wonder if something more than a massage happened that day. I don't know whether anything mystical or something deeply healing went on -- I don't typically buy into the hype of that sort of thing. But, what I know is that whatever happened, simply massage or something more, I am planning my next visit.
The fountain of youth is a myth.
Nirvana, however, which seems to offer something very similar, is quite real - and I intend to imbibe as often as I can.

My goodness, what an extraordinarily wonderful review! How wonderful to read that you had such a transportive experience and that the blissful effects of the massage have lasted for so long. Our therapists are so very skilled (all with 10-29 years of experience) and have hearts of gold. In addition, we treat the spa as a truly sacred space. Luckily, Albuquerque is so nearby, so getting back to Absolute Nirvana will be relatively easy. We very much look forward to seeing you again.
