Description of service

I received a one hour massage and a aromatherapy steam bath. The massage was performed by a registered massage therapist. The price likely covered cost of materials such as the oil used for the massage and the all-natural essential oil used in the steam bath.


Review of Service

Everyone who worked there was extremely helpful, friendly and reassuring. It was my first time to a massage therapist, so I was a little nervous. Both the receptionist and the therapist were very receptive and accommodating to this fact. The massage therapist described everything she was going to do before the session started so nothing came as a surprise.

The steam bath was a perfect way to relax after the massage. It was very private and comfortable and I was in control of the temperature, amount of steam and everything else.


Tips

When looking for an establishment to get your massage at, make sure that the person performing the service is a registered massage therapist. If it is your first time visiting a particular location or therapist, make sure that their diploma or certificate is displayed in plain view. If it isn't, ask to see. You don't want someone doing any kind of work on you that isn't properly certified because accidents happen and serious, permanent damage can result.

Don't be afraid to speak up. You are paying this person for a service, so if they're doing something that is uncomfortable or painful, you need to tell them, as they probably aren't aware. This could also lead them to finding some underlying problem.

Make sure you tell the massage therapist what you want massaged before they start. If you are uncomfortable with a certain body part/area, or otherwise don't want them going somewhere, then speak up.
