Setting: There are 3 rows of 3 chairs that are seperated by dividers. The decor is nice with serene music playing and a water feature that provides a relaxing background of trickling water. it was quiet and the staff whispered so there isn't a lot of distraction. They wear uniforms which is different for other places I have been so far, it was a nice more professional touch. The lady working the desk spoke and understood english well, The massage staff appeared to be less fluent.
$20 Foot Reflexology Massage: This experience started with putting my feet in some comfortably warm water, adjusting the pillows to my comfort and laying a blanket over me. The massage began on my forehead with a lightly scented oil. She massaged my face, head and neck and it felt wonderful with solid pressure in all the right spots. She then moved to my arms and hands again a good deal of strength used on my muscles. She also stretched my arms that included pulling them in some different directions. I have to admit I have very tender feet and so when she got to my feet I found it to be a bit uncomfortable. My friend that went with me doesn't have tender feet and thought it felt great. It felt more like sports massages that I have paid $100+ for. Once she completed my feet, she wiped them down and then I turned over for one of the best back and shoulders massages I have had. She hit all the right places with great pressure, more stretching of my legs and I so relaxed after the experience. I was then asked if I would like water or tea as I got my shoes back on to head out. Nice touch!
Appointments: It is good to make an appointment here because they have become very popular quite quickly. It is simple enough to call and let them know you want to come in a half hour or an hour. Appointments don't need to be made days ahead of time. Walk-in are welcome and they are pretty well staffed.
Payments: They take cash or credit cards. They also provide you with a return card that gets stamped with each visit. After 10 visits, you get a free massage. Payment is collected after service
