I’m confused how this place has so many 5 star reviews. I got the hot stone massage. Most of the massage was spent lazily rubbing hot stones over my back and lower legs. I assumed the massage would be full body. The only areas covered were my upper and lower back and the backs of my legs. There was no pressure whatsoever and no technique at all. I’ve had hot stone massages in the past and they were nothing like this. She answered the phone during my massage and spent about 50% of the massage walking over to get more hot stones. My massage was just about 45 mins even with her answering the phone. Glad I didn’t pay full price.
I arrived late (my fault) and so was only able to take 30 minutes, which was fine, but the appointment was then changed to deep tissue instead of hot stone, not my preference but I was stressed and frazzled and didn't want to waste more of my time as the treatment would now be shorter.
One of the most uncomfortable massages I have ever had. No consultation on problem areas or pressure. I let the therapist know it was much too strong to which she responded 'oh, first time massage?' it was not, I just have tender areas of my skin and was looking forward to relaxation. Throughout the 30 minute I had to ask her twice more to lighten on the pressure, getting to the point that on multiple occasions I audibly shouted 'ow' and at one point lifted myself from the bed in pain.
Therapist did not alter her style at all and it was truly unpleasant and painful. I regret not just asking her to stop as it was horrible, but i already felt judged as when I mentioned it hurting she said something about doing more exercise.
I'm hoping I will feel the benefits of the intensity, but this was not the massage I wanted or expected. If I wanted something this painful I would have booked a sports massage.
Some might enjoy being pummelled like a piece of meat by someone who feels as if they are rushing within an inch of their life, but it was not for me.
