Mahala's Day Spa in Manchester offers so many different services from eyelashes and nails to facials and massages. I decided to try some Reflexology.

Reflexology is when the Licensed Massage Therapist finds the pressure points in the bottoms of your feet and uses them to stimulate the nerves throughout the entire body. I'm so glad I got to meet Claire Guy!

I want to EXPLORE! I want to stand on the stage at the Ryman!
