Excellent Massage for Nothing

Jamie’s 40th birthday is right around the corner. As a great addition to the festivities coming up, four of his friends from high school made the journey down to help celebrate. So, currently he is in Buenos Aires partying it up; enjoying the mayhem that the Paris of South America can create (although I personally think it is more like New York than Paris, minus the European architecture).

Being the one that stayed behind to hold the fort down, I have been doing my fair share of work. But today I decided to treat myself. There are a few different places around town at the moment that are offering relaxation deals, due to slow season. I found a great massage therapist (which is not an easy thing to locate in Argentina) that is offering a full body massage with a facial or reflexology for fifty pesos.

As a connoisseur of body treatments, I was a bit skeptical making the appointment, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Cristina is an extremely talented therapist and I walked out of there feeling much lighter. The chi is definitely flowing again.

And for a measely US$15, including tip, I’m wondering why I waited so long.

    Hi Shanie,

    Thanks for all the great info you share. The massage sounds wonderful. Can you pass on Cristina’s contact info and also where she is (kilometers (which), centro, etc.)?

    Hi Jill,

    Thanks so much for the kind words.

    Yes, Cristina is great. Her number is 15206067 or 456 960. She is located a block off of Bustillo KM 12.5 (across from the Petrobras gas station).
