Ow x 2

First "ow" was at the dog park. I'd just arrived with my dogs, and was bent over hooking them up to their leash. Harley, the excitable, bounced with joy and smashed his rock-hard skull into the bottom of my chin. Unfortunately, I had the tip of my tongue between my teeth...OW!

Second "ow" was a good one. I can finally cross off "go see a chiropractor" from my to-do list, where it had been languishing for months. I work 40 hours a week as a massage therapist, and I get tired and lazy with my body mechanics...so my body is pretty fucked-up. I'm always in some level of pain, but by the end of the week my right shoulder especially will barely move when I wake up. So off to the chiropractor I went, for the first time ever. It was AWESOME! I'm going to give them a plug right here:

Tropicana West Chiropractic
6819 W. Tropicana Ave. Suite 100
Las Vegas, NV 89103

I was seen by both Dr. Leavitt and Dr. Senecal (who are brothers-in-law, btw), but Dr. Leavitt did the actual adjustments.

Oh my God! My back sounded like somebody was breaking uncooked spaghetti! I feel so, so much better now. He also worked on my neck, right shoulder (which has full range of motion now, thankyouverymuch), and both SI joints.
My body feels so light now, like I could float away.

I will be going back on Thursday, after that we'll see...

I also should really get a massage. Maybe if it's slow on Thursday, I can get a massage in while at work. That would be a great way to start my work-week.

I feel so...comfortable and accepted here!

wow. Well, if I had as hot a chiropractor as jethro locally, I'd prolly go.

My dog nearly broke my nose once jumping up as I was bending down - she hit me square with her solid-bone little light-bulb head. And still, I love her.

The damn dogs either hit me full-on in the gut with their paws, or smash me in the face/chin with their heads. I often just turn around quickly and take it on the ass, as kinky as that may sound!

Sadly enough, my chiropractor is definitely NOT hot, but very, very good nonetheless!
