Tropical Healing Day: After sunbathing on the beach ( #vitamind) and swimming in the sea ( #saltwater), I wandered into a spa for a massage ( #lymphaticdrainage).
While waiting in the reception area, I noticed all the people working there were navigating the space slowly and with their hands softly extended in front of them. It didn’t take long to realize that all (but one) of the employees were blind. A man sitting next me told me a story of how the owner of the spa intentionally recruited, hired and trained people with because it was otherwise very hard for them to find jobs in Mexico. He ended the story by saying he comes here weekly for the #quiropraxia.What!? A Mexican chiropractor who can’t see. Amazing.
So I booked a deep tissue massage followed by a chiropractic adjustment ( #mindbodyconnection). After two hours of bodywork, my brain was online, my heart was connected and my body was relaxed. I ended the evening at a wonderful Mayan restaurant, eating the best steak I’ve ever had ( #protein) and finishing the meal with unbelievably delicious coconut cream ice cream ( #healthyfats).
