My favourite massage experience in Sydney – well worth travelling for!!!

With nine days to go before the holidays and before my long-awaited Long Service Leave, four of us went for our 1 1/2 hour massage with Sr Tess and friends. We have been getting fantastic massages at Bethany for many years (although I haven’t been for many years) and today’s massage reminded me why I used to go. A not widely publicised form of massage at Bethany – Holistic Health Centre Inc, is the 1 1/2 or 2 hour massage you can get with a group of four people on a Saturday. Today we had the full range of four 21 minute massages ranging from Indian head/neck massage to foot reflexology, to acupressure of our legs to remedial massage on the lower back. It was magic!

At $95.00 for 1 1/2 hours and $110.00 for 2 hours this massage experience is a bargain and is MUCH more than one would expect from a “normal” massage. As they advertise, Bethany’s commitment to Holistic Health Care means that they go out of their way to give a caring, healing and spiritually uplifting experience of massage.

I am glad I found my way back. Sr Tess – I will definitely be returning!

What a trip!

Following our busy period of Retreat and Camp, Michael and I headed on a brief, but great trip to Wentworth Falls. The start of our “surprise” trips – http://www.lastminute.com – was a raging success with a fantastic stay at a quiet and isolated spot in Wentworth Falls. The private access to Water Nymph Dell was a winner!

A long and gruelling walk along National Pass for two fairly unfit walkers, the 2 hour walk around Wentworth Falls was beautiful – I’d suggest doing the walk in the opposite direction to how all the published walks suggest – a great suggestion given to us by the waitress at Conservation Hut… thank you! We had heaps more energy to appreciate the falls as they cascaded down the cliff below Conservation Hut, and we would both prefer the gruelling 15 min climb up the ladders on the side of the valley next to Wentworth Falls.
