Well, it's nothing like the marathon that was run in New York City yesterday, but in order to research my latest column for The Street, I had four, count 'em four, spa treatments in 48 hours. (I checked out a couple of the spas on other trips.) I have not earned a lot of sympathy from friends and family for this research feat.
What's amazing to me is how quickly the tension returned to my neck and shoulder blades. The spa that figures out how to make the relaxation last the longest will definitely be on to something.
