During our latest episode of “Healing the Hooves”, my husband (the samurai) and I (wretched shrew) went for random, no-frills dry rubbing (oooh… sounds dirty) to conquer the cramps of our beaten arches and twinkle toes with flickers that needed recharging– simple, yet sensational. In the future, however, completely away from our laptops and “lazy day” attitudes, we just might pull out the fun, creamy, oily props for our very own “Shiatsu Olympics”.
Our sessions are usually impromptu, but frequent enough that we understand each other’s non-verbal signals of puppy-dog eyes and out-stretched limbs in our playmate’s direction to silently shout (in Michael Buffer fashion), “Let’s Get Ready to RUB-le!!!”
One of the great things about simultaneous stimulation (feet, people, feet… focus!) is being able to point out the trouble spots on our own person by demonstrating and applying the type of pressure that we like on the other. If your sidekick (pun intended) gets the picture, he or she will mimic your actions and learn what you like.
It’s so comforting to have that special someone to squoosh away the aches and pains (but let’s keep it real– it’s a lot cheaper than paying for it, too! HELLO!!!?)
For you poor saps out there, in Cyberland, who haven’t experienced the good, ChocolateGeisha life and want some pointers on how to get started, check out this Style section of eHow that I just came across for a guide on sharing pedilicious foot gratification and the health benefits received from it… not-to-mention that “lovey~dovey” feeling.
My guy and I relish deep-tissue touching on one another’s hands, as well, giving great attention to each digit, but you’re not ready for that, grasshoppers. 😉
What do you and your partner do to partake in a little tenderness?
Go on… spill it!
