Between two typically busy seasons, October is like an island. The month before October has all the back-to-school energy, hype to get organized, and grasping at the waning days of fair weather. For many people, it’s the months after October that are really full and stressful (even if filled with delights). It’s too soon to talk about them just yet.
The good news is that right now, here in October, there is breathing room.
As the days shorten and the weather changes in earnest, take a moment to notice what calls to you. What is your heart longing for? Perhaps it’s good conversation over good coffee. Or the comfort of snuggling under the covers with a stay-up-late read. Maybe you want to walk beneath the beauty of changing trees and hear the crunch of fallen leaves.
Amid the pumpkin spice and trick-or-treaters, there’s a bittersweetness in October that calls us to remember how precious our days are. While you’re here in this oasis between busy times, be sure to take good care of yourself, rest up, and listen to what matters most to you.
Herbal Poultice Massage
One our favorite services at Simply Blissed is an Herbal Poultice Massage—a unique massage with herb-infused warm compresses. Similar to hot stone massage, our practitioners knead, roll, and press your muscles with the cloth-wrapped, steamed bundles. The fragrance and healing properties of ginger, turmeric, lemongrass, and citrus soothe sore muscles and stiff joints, improve flexibility, and reduce inflammation. Tension melts away. We give you the poultice compresses to take home and steep in your next bath for added benefits. Sign up today for this truly special spa experience.
