My neck, my back, my shoulders and.. yeah a massage by Bonnie Quines.

I've said in previous blog posts that I've not experienced the spa life before; so I'm always jumping at the chance to try anything spa related. 

Hidden away in a little place in Broxburn is a salon called Bonnie Quines. This salon is very deceiving from its exterior as it looks just like a normal office building. However, in the warmth of the individual rooms screams out experience, talent and a fecking good massage therapist. 

I was booked in for a back, neck and shoulder Swedish massage with the massage therapist Nicola. I don't think I've had a proper one before other than that one time on holiday but that was all a bit weird (they started rubbing my belly which was the most bizarre thing I've ever felt).  Nicola was very professional but with such a warm welcome she made me feel at ease straight away. She asked if I had any health problems or if I was on any medication before we started and after that we were good to go. 

You know the drill. The relaxing music starts with all sorts of noises from the ocean, the rooms so cosy that your already nodding off and before you know it your face is so far in that wee hole thing in the bed that you almost feel like this is you at your most natural state. 

Hats off to Nicola though, the girl knows how to move pressure through out your body and there was a fair few instances where my toosties were moving at the sheer feeling of being that relaxed. She surprised me because I didn't have any problems with my back at all and thought it would be quite straight forward however, we soon realised my back was full of really complicated knots and the pressure needed to get them out was quite intense. She totally worked them out and it was such a fab feeling.

Who wants a massage that's nice and cute and bang average? nah not me. The pressure was good and again I was surprised at how even she could distribute it along my back. If your going for a massage, you want to feel a step above deep relaxation, and Nicola defiantly achieved that with me. Also a huge congratulations to Nicola for making it as a finalist for the Scottish Hair and Beauty awards 2015. She's in the running to win 'Best Massage Therapist' and she better bloody win it!.

If you would like to book in with Nicola, she's based in Bonnie Quines in Broxburn. You can email reception@bonniequines.com or call 01506 858896 to book. You can also get the girls on their Facebook page www.facebook.com/bonniequines
