I'm usually only compelled to review a business when I feel like I have been wronged but in this case, I feel it would be wrong of me not to provide a positive review for this business. I have been nothing but pleased with the service and massages I have received over the last few weeks. When I started coming in for massages I had been struggling through nearly daily debilitating headaches to the point that I was nearly in tears the first time I came in as I related my situation to the therapist. The staff has always been helpful, friendly, accommodating, and kind. The massages have been extraordinary and my body has been rejuvenated by the magic hands of my favorite therapist (message me for her name, I don't want to start the next gold rush and lose out on her killer massages).
This location as well as a couple other local ones, as I understand it, are under the ownership of someone who was an instructor at a local massage school and continues to be involved in the development of the curriculum at this school. This provides the owner with the knowledge of whom some of the best therapists are coming out of this school and the majority of staff are hand picked from the alumni of this school. This is good for you and good for their business as they have some amazing therapists.
Massage Envy is corporate. That means they do have to worry about playing music in a public place, so queue the muzak. They also don't have terry cloth robes to hang out in, steam rooms, teas, etc... They focus on a good massage, a relaxing break, great service, and a cup of water. If you are looking for a "spa" experience then double or triple what you are going to pay and go get it someplace else. If you are looking for a master to lay their hands upon you and work their magic, then come here.
As others have said, avoid the parking fees and park behind the building. Book appointments between the top and half of the hours to avoid the rush that will get you the answering machine. If you do get the answering machine they WILL call you back promptly. Go, relax, unwind, and enjoy this haven of awesomeness.
Massage Envy, for me, is historically hit-or-miss. I go for a massage not hoping for relaxation, but for some brutal knot slaying that will leave me almost in tears but destroys the tension I have built up. At most locations, I found I had about a 30% chance of success in that.
Sam, in particular, is stupendous. I recently scheduled a 90 minute massage a few days before going on a 10-day cross-country road trip. A traffic accident held me up and I arrived late, but instead of having my massage cut short, which I fully expected, he offered to continue past my scheduled appointment time - into his break time - to finish attacking my back. That kind of service from a "chain" is just about unheard of!
I really don't want to go anywhere else.
Membership is a great value, and you can use it anywhere there is a location in the country! Don't need deep tissue this time? Try a different therapist!
Get membership. Pays itself off after 5 massages or facials!!! You can use multiple credits of you have any you didn't use in a previous month!
