hi boardies. i know this has been discussed before. i did search the archives for other threads, but i am hoping a few of you might be able to help me help a friend. in mid-october, she will be participating in a bike ride that ends in negril and she is looking for a really great massage afterwards. the ride is on a saturday, so she will need the massage on the sunday. it's a holiday weekend in jamaica too (Heroes Day), so we need to know who gives a really great massage and is going to be working on a holiday weekend. any recommendations?
also, any boardies planning to be in negril on october 16, let me know if you are interested in coming out to support the riders as they come into negril. they will have ridden over 150 miles to get there, and it's for a really great cause. check the website if you're interested, and once the official flier has been made i'll post that too. thanks! www.jamaicabybike.com

Oya is wonderful and usually can be contacted through Catcha/Andrea. As always never sure if she is still round but I hope so - she is an expert and sweet soul.Preach Peace~Live Love~Blesséd Be ONE LOVE Sweet

There are many wonderful pairs of hands in Negril! My personal favorite is Sandra. She is one of several talented women that work out of the little pink hut between Charela and Idle Awhile that is run by the Chamber of Commerce. She was key to my recovery both times I've done the Reggae Marathon.

Monica is located at/near Treehouse but will come to your room - she has done wonders for me! Pat at Boat Bar is my mom's favorite because she knows what she is doing for people with arthritis.

I can also second Jackie's. My massage there was fantastic. I would also recommend finding a place where you could either soak in a hot bath or sit in a hot jacuzzi for a good 10-15 minutes first to warm up the muscles. That allows for a much better massage and after the marathon, you'll need it. If you can do that at your hotel and have the therapist come to your room, that would be ideal.
Also, make sure whoever you go to has a full table WITH head pad so that you can put your face through the donut hole and keep your spine straight. I've been to several massage therapists in Negril that DON'T have the head pad and you have to twist your neck to the side while laying on your stomach. Not so great, especially after a marathon.My 2009 Trip Report: http://www.negril.com/discus/messages/286862/276676.html Trip #7 in

Lance at Moon Dance... I'm kind of a massage snob, he is absolutely fantastic, rated in my top 2 of my life. He's got great energy too...fb me if you want more info on him."The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn is Just to Love and Be Loved in Return."
