“God, I need to freaking relax!”
I looked in the mirror and spit out those words so forcefully at my reflection a couple weeks ago. My husband was gone on a trip, my preschooler was bouncing off the walls, and my high need baby was screaming in the other room because he refuses to be put down or left alone ever. I took a deep breath in and pulled my shoulders back down from my ears… and that was it. That was all I got – those few seconds in the bathroom while my baby screamed and my older son drummed on the wall, beckoning me to come out.
It was like the Universe knew I was on the verge of a stroke, because the very next day (not kidding) I got a knock on my door and this was there:
You’re wondering what that is, aren’t you?
I waited until the kids were asleep, and then I plopped myself down on the living room floor and opened it. It looked like luxury in a box, people.
It was like opening a box of gourmet chocolates… except the only thing melting would be my tension, and I wouldn’t have to feel guilty in the morning.
It even smelled expensive and luxurious… and Swiss.
Yes I sniffed it.
After opening the box I felt like I was a new member of some secret society. It was packaged so beautifully, and that little gold pin… I just know I’m supposed to pin it on my sweater so other members of the secret society can recognize me.
The wand itself was shaped so perfectly… easy to hold, and reaches everywhere.
As if on cue, my left shoulder started to throb – it had paid a hefty price having to hold my youngest son these past eleven months. I thumbed through the instructions and noticed it had to be charged for a couple hours before I could use it. I put it aside, vowing to charge and use it the next day.
Of course, that didn’t happen. I was too busy, you know – being stressed out.
It wasn’t until a full week later that I was able to take some time for myself.
I tried it and
I have used it every day since.
At first I didn’t think I would be into the whole vibration thing as I enjoy more of a kneading-type massage. However, the relaxation of my left shoulder afterward has converted me. I think one of the main reasons is the Sense Touch technology. Instead of applying maximum stimulation to the muscles from the start, the massage strength will build after it comes into contact with the skin. It’s got built in sensors – that’s why it’s “smart”.
You can also use it with a water-based massage solution, but I didn’t need to. Honestly, whatever grade of silicone they made it out of feels like the top of my baby’s head. The Smart Wand glided effortlessly across my skin.
If you want to overachieve on your relaxation you can also use it in a warm bath. What? A bath? Yes, my friends. The Smart Wand is waterproof.
I have since used my Smart Wand for a few minutes every night before I curl up to sleep. For just a few minutes each day, it’s been nice to feel relaxed – to feel pampered.
The Smart Wand by LELO is my new best friend.
It’s luxury in a box.
It’s better than chocolates.
PS- Because I love you and think you deserve some luxury, and because LELO is nice, they are going to give one of you a medium sized one of these.
