Spa Betty Series: 3 (Almost 4) Massages In One Day. Oh My!

In order to keep myself from having to go to the spa every day while I’m here (too much pressure for a vacation!), I’m allowing myself to double and triple up treatments when necessary. Just so long as I get 30 in by the end of my trip, I’ll consider this whole experiment a success.So after all the poking and boob fondling of the first two days, I decide to give myself a much needed break on day 3 and instead, go sightseeing.The next day however, it’s back to business. I catch a cab to Cozy, an out of the way day spa frequented by Aussie expats. It doesn’t look like much from the outside and it’s housed in the Indonesian version of a strip mall, but inside it’s all beauty business. The ground floor is airy and open and even features a juice bar.Upstairs, however, I feel like I’m entering the Pleurisy Ward of Relaxation. Instead of individual rooms, it is just a series of floor to ceiling medicinal white curtains dividing up the beds. That’s fine though. I keep my eyes closed during treatments anyway.Like the day before yesterday, I am instructed to change into the one-size-fits-most disposable underwear I will henceforth refer to as Tourist Panties. And luckily, unlike the first day, this trio of massages is executed with skill.Today I’ve signed up for a 2-hour full body massage / head massage / foot massage. I can’t think of anything better than that.“Excuse me, ma’am. Would you like massage therapists? ”At first I think, “Wow, there’s more? Why not? I’m not sure what it is, but it sounds intriguing.”Oh wait, no! No! Thank you, but NO, I will pass on the breast massage.I gotta say, this whole breast thing is making me wonder. Would they consider it perverted if I said yes? Like a female happy finish? Or am I just a total prude? And by the way, this isn’t a rhetorical question. Feel free to clue me in here, Betties.Travel Betty BasicsCozyJl.

      I say let turn your little betties loose & let ‘em have some FUN! After all, they spend most of their life all cooped up & rarely get out to see the sights.
      Take it from me, they’ll appreciate. And so will you!
      PS: Wish I was there!

      I bet she would, Khalid. There are tons of great spas around Bali with a variety of price points. You definitely don’t have to go to the fancy shmancy places to get great bodywork done! Have a blast on your trip.
