I booked a Cryo session followed by a 90-minute deep tissue Thai massage.
This review is based solely on the massage I received. I cannot tell yet if the Cryo session was effective, but the therapist, Lenny, was so professional and friendly. We chatted during the whole session, and he kept checking in to make sure I was comfortable. After my session was over, I was moved into another room for my massage. At that point, I was prepared to give this place 5 stars based on Lenny's service alone. But then things took a turn...
My therapist, Monthiya, came into the room and asked me to change into the clothes since I was getting a deep tissue Thai massage. They had a clock on the wall, which I made sure to look at when we started. When she returned, the clock read 1:30.
Within a few minutes of starting my massage, she immediately left the room. I thought it was odd since she just started massaging me, but I let it go since she returned a few minutes later. She started working on me again, and I was waiting for the deep tissue portion to start. I think she was having challenges getting into my knots, understandably so, because it has been a while since my last massage. But isn't that the job of a masseuse? I've had deep tissue and Thai massages many times, so I know what they feel like.
After trying for 5-10 minutes, she left the room AGAIN. Then when she returned, she apologized saying that she needed to get her phone. I wondered why that was important. They typically ask that you silence your phones, and why would she need to have hers when she should be working on me, her client?? By the way, throughout my whole session, she got text messages twice, and her phone wasn't on silent mode. A bit disruptive in my opinion...
She started massaging me again, and then asked me to remove my bra, which they typically let you keep on when you are wearing the Thai clothes. But I obliged since she was having challenges massaging me.
At that point, guess what, she got up and left the room yet AGAIN. I lifted my head to find out what was happening, and there were 2 people standing outside my room. I think they needed to talk to her. When she returned about 5 minutes later, she didn't even apologize.
At this point, it had been maybe 30 minutes in. I hadn't really had any true massage at that point. It was far from relaxing. And of course, it was start, stop, start, stop, start, stop.
As she started to massage me, she asked me if I wanted her to use oils on me so that it would be easier for her to massage me. She said she could use oils for 30 minutes. I reluctantly agreed since she seemed to be struggling with massaging me. I thought this would part of the 90 minute massage I had originally booked. She didn't tell me there would be a separate charge for this. She had to leave the room to get the oils (I lost count of how many times she had left the room at that point) but surprisingly she returned within a couple of minutes. She started using the oils, and I can't say it helped any. Although it made it easier for her to work on me, I still didn't get the deep tissue experience I would have expected. And she certainly didn't use the oils for 30 minutes.
About an hour in, she asked me to flip so she could work on my front. After she finished, I looked at the clock, and it was 2:55. So I didn't get my full 90 minutes. Some people who read this review might think that it was only 5 minutes short. However, when you factor in that she left the room a bunch of times and was gone for several minutes each time, I doubt I got more than one total hour of massage - and that wasn't even one hour uninterrupted!
Instead of feeling relaxed, knot-free, or refreshed, I was frustrated. I changed and went out to pay. They charged me one hour of "deep tissue Thai" and then 30 minutes of aromatherapy massage. Again, I didn't get one hour of deep tissue Thai nor did I get 30 minutes of aromatherapy. My biggest issue with massage places is when they don't give you the full time you pay for, especially when you show up on time and even more so, when the therapist leaves the room a bunch of times! I also feel that the 30 minute aromatherapy add was a little "bait-and-switchy" from my perspective.
Despite my bad experience, I gave her a 20% cash tip. Not sure why I did given how unprofessional she was. The one positive was that she very sweet and friendly which makes this review even that more disappointing.
The place is clean and it’s a good costumer service. But I did not feel comfortable doing my treatment with a men. Also I did not see any results. I have done one session of CRYOT treatment. I have had this treatment before and it was completely different.
