Wait, what? Your back doesn’t look like this after a “massage?”


I got a BEATING     massage last night.

I mean, what do you think… is this NORMAL?

She called it “traditional Korean massage” and I am pretty sure my back is going to hurt for DAYS. Today it feels exactly how it looks. Terrible!

If I can give you one piece of advice on massages in Korea… just don’t go there.

Lesson learned.

About Elicia Shepard

I'm unique just like you. I've learned every person has a story which makes us who we are. One minute I am here..then I am gone. Discovering unknown places and people is an addiction I am proud of and will be an endless journey of mine. Smiling is not a pastime it's what I do. I live for moments that take my breath away. Falling in love is the greatest feeling-and the biggest risk. I thrive off of risks.Challenges. Adrenaline rushes. Making others smile. Art is all around and in ourselves. I love taking an unknown path not knowing where it'll lead. Mystery is beautiful. Compassion, kindness, and love- things I will always strive for. Know what you believe in. Stand up for it. Never be afraid to feel. Time waits for no one.Ever. Children inspire me. God fires me. Happiness is being with those you love.I am really blessed. I think God is love and forgiveness and I think he wants us to be good people and love EVERYONE. Figure out who you are and what that means to you-It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself (and you deserve it.) Live frugally on surprise. Breathe. Be who you are. Be an outcast...If you wanna find me I will be where the wind blows...Wherever that may take me.

  1. I love getting massages, but Korean massages are pretty hardcore. I’ve heard they think Americans are ‘strong’ and so we need to be beat for it to be effective. Feel better!

    • Wow! Do you bruise like this too??? I am afraid to ever get another massage in my life! I am finally feeling better today, but it took about 4 days to recover 🙂 still have some bruising, but it doesn’t hurt to move anymore!
