Little Story 244 – The Session

4 min read


I went to get a full physique therapeutic massage final Friday (after every week of feeling nauseous, full and bloated). Often I get further ‘bloaty’ throughout PMS however final week been terrible, I can not eat, I obtained heartburn and further anxious as nicely. It has been a chilly week and I am liable to illness throughout chilly season. 

I wore further layers, I drank heat drinks in the course of the day and sizzling tea at evening, I took sizzling bathe, soak my legs in epsom salt bathtub, I wore socks after I sleep, I even purchased lengthy sleeve pajama set and took out my ‘cold-season’ sweater. I do not understand how different sensitive-to-weather-changes folks survive this with out falling sick 😂 I really feel outdated, I even look outdated, like granny in a sweater and socks, holding sizzling tea and massaging physique with ginger oil after meal. I did not know what else to do.

Anyway, I needed to let this ‘wind’ (angin badan) out – I do not fart/burp as a lot as regular folks do, so I get sick actually because there’s an excessive amount of wind. This pinching ache on my stomach (like heartburn) + chest space, the nauseousness, the fatigue, the wind, there is no such thing as a medical time period good to summarize this (I requested a health care provider earlier than and the physician mentioned there is no such thing as a such factor as ‘angin badan’, however I select to disagree). 

When this occur, I normally go for a therapeutic massage, particularly to let loose the ‘angin’. Earlier than this, I additionally tried acupressure, acupuncture, dry cupping (bekam), and guasha therapeutic massage : these additionally assist with letting the ‘angin’ out, stress-free the muscle and simply assist me with my circumstances.  

So I contacted a ‘Muslimah’ therapeutic massage therapist close to my home, she particularly centered on serving to feminine shoppers, and he or she does it at her home. Actually, I do not know whether or not I ought to blindly belief somebody I discovered on-line (nicely do not – it is harmful). However I went to her home anyway, creeped out a bit, a pleasant first rate flat dwelling, actually darkish after I got here in (maybe to create a ‘non-public/intimate’ ambiance), she gave me a chilly water that I pretended to drink as a result of I used to be a bit fearful, then she despatched me to the center room to get change. The room was embellished with first rate trying mattress, there was therapeutic massage certificates on the wall, a small banner for her enterprise, some candles and in addition some therapeutic massage equipments. She offered a chunk of ‘batik lepas’, requested me to take off every little thing aside from the underwear. Redho je lah kan. 

However regardless of that, it was a tremendous therapeutic massage session. She even gave me further 15 minutes of head/face therapeutic massage. It was a bit painful when she centered on some troubled factors (particularly the stomach half and the ‘sengkak‘). She mentioned every little thing was good, only a little bit of ‘wind’ right here and there. Nothing too problematic, she mentioned my physique body is kind of small, so it was very easy for her bodily in comparison with different shoppers. She talked about to handle my consumption, do not drink ‘chilly’ water or meals, select veggies & fruits which can be appropriate for my physique kind. 

All in all, the therapeutic massage session was a bliss and it helped me. I imply, she burped like nobody’s enterprise the entire session, just like the sound of untamed animals – apart from that, it was an awesome session. I’d wish to go for an additional session if she might go to my home as an alternative as a result of I’m NOT snug getting a therapeutic massage at a stranger’s home. 

Proper after the session, I ate like I fasted for every week, and the nausea wasn’t that dangerous anymore. The day after, the signs subsided and there’s nonetheless a remaining feeling like a small lump left within the small nook of my stomach. I nonetheless drink sizzling drinks and actually choosy with my meals consumption as a result of I miss not feeling terrible. I even misplaced virtually 2 kg not doing something :F

There isn’t a lesson from this story : it’s simply one thing I put my belief on blindly as a result of I used to be determined for an answer after I attempted every little thing I can myself.
