Main / Best spa treatments to help with grief
« on: January 22, 2009, 03:24:19 PM »
Hi there -

My mom has offered to buy me a massage. I have had several standard massages in the past and I'm curious about other types of spa treatments, and if anyone can recommend any kinds of treatments they've had that have helped with deep relaxation, release, and/or experiencing that elusive joy...

I have heard of something called Shirodhara which sounds really cool but I haven't yet been able to find any place near me (Seattle area) that does it.

This would really be a one-off treatment, or occasional, as I can't afford a long series.

FYI, I lost my husband five weeks ago tomorrow.

Wishing you all deep relaxation, release, and joy,

My husband killed himself one month ago today - or yesterday. We're not sure. A week or two after his death I checked out this book from the library and it really helped me put this tragedy into context and I think put me in the right frame of mind to start this horrible journey of grieving.

Includes lots of information about why we cannot take the blame for our loved one's suicide.

"Healing After the Suicide of a Loved One"
by Ann Smolin and John Guinan

Quick, easy read. I read it almost right through in a day or two.

I hope this can help some of you out there.
