This was my first massage. My
girlfriend has gotten several and bought a groupon for me. I was excited up until I got there. The building was old and worn down. I was not met with a relaxing environment.
I went in and was taken back to my room. I was asked exactly what I wanted and what needed the most attention. I gave specifics on what was tight and what needed a lot of pressure....my neck, shoulders and mid back.
The young lady proceeded to massage my back for 8 mins only. This poor young lady had the grip of a five year old. She barley put enough pressure on my back to feel anything. I kept telling her not to worry about hurting me and to apply more pressure. After the 8 minutes back massage, she put a thick towel on my back and some hot stones on top of it. I could barley feel the stones heat. I asked her if she was coming back to my back and neck with more pressure later. She just said she needed to get to the rest of my body.
She proceeded to massage my legs and feet. I flipped over and she went to my arms and fingers. She spent more time on my forearms and hands than she did my back. And my arms and hands didn't need massaging!! What was supposed to be an hour massage turned out to only be 43 minutes, and only 8 was spent on the areas I specifically said to focus on.
During the massage, I kept hearing a man out in the lobby arguing with the other female worker. The front door kept slamming and people were stomping around. It was just not a good environment to relax.
I was very disappointed with the massage. My girlfriend was very upset as well as she had bought it for me and knew how many knots I had in my neck, shoulders, and back. She was very let down.
I will never go back to Pure Life Massage and encourage you to not go as well.
