Worst Deep Tissue Massage Ever

  • No, I would not go back!

I have had massages all over the city, and this is the first time I actually could not wait for the massage to END. I bought massages for my husband and I off of Groupon, a discount site, after checking the ratings. I guess that I should have taken the discount offer as a warning. When we got there they asked us if we wanted to pay $10 extra a person to 'upgrade' to the deep tissue massage. Then they asked us if we wanted to pay another $10 to 'upgrade' to the couples room. We took the bait, and I have never felt like more of a sucker. If my husband had not been in the couples room with me, I would have honestly stopped the massage and walked out. I was hopeful he was having a better experience, but when it was over and I asked him how it was, his response was 'eh.' I felt awful that I wasted so much money and time on this place. Even paying the discounted price (plus an extra $40 for the upgrade and taxes) felt like a complete rip-off. I was honest with the manager when she asked about our experience and explained we were disappointed. She said that they made a note of the who massaged me so that I would not get her again if and when I came back. Not any comfort considering I would never, ever go back to this place. If you haven't been suckered into a Groupon, don't waste your money or take a chance on this place. Sooooo many better spas in the city.

Amazing Find

This place is increadible. It is located in the basement of an office building so I wasn't expecting much. I was surpirsed to find a spa that had a spacious and relaxing atmosphere. The staff was attentive and very nice. Everything was super clean and hygenic. My couples massage service was amazing - the perfect combination of relaxation and therapy. I can't wait to go back - definitely one of the best, if not the best, spa experience I have ever had!
