First it took two months to try to book this.wouldn't let me book on a Fri, Sat or Sun with a Groupon. They were starting to annoy me because they swore it was in the fine print but i read the Groupon details three times and didn't see this written anywhere. Then they had issues with booking on the days i was able to find someone to watch my kids since i couldn't just use a free weekend day as originally planned. Took two more weeks to figure out the sitter and find an available time slot. Was very nervous on my way there because the locals have rated this place 1.6 on the star rating in Google Maps. Was prepared for horror.
The sign out front says Barefoot 49 so i was afraid i may be in the wrong place but lady at front said it was.
Great atmosphere. Love the waterfall decoration up front. Dimly lit. Quiet. Only one other male customer leaving when i got there.
Lady at desk brought me a whole box of tissues when i asked if she had one.
I was forty minutes early but only had to wait about 15.
Carla came out to get me. Started in a dark room with oversized chairs draped in sheets. Feet in a metal bucket lined with plastic bag. Warm water with epsom salts. No aromatherapy, though, which sucked because i would've requested peppermint for my sinuses.
She started rubbing my hands and arms. Did a good job. Moved to my legs and feet. Spent a considerable amount of time on them. Great job. Just when i thought she was done she busted out some warm rocks which she rubbed all over my legs. I've never had this done this way, only ever just placed on me...so i found this to feel quite amazing.
Then she had me flip on my stomach and stretched my body around head to feet. Then flipped me back and did the same thing again.
Gave her a tip as I walked out and she handed me a water.
The hassle of booking really really sucked and made me question whether i had made a mistake in purchasing, but the service itself was amazing and i would definitely recommend.
