When I arrived, it was dark inside. I tried the door thinking it was just the tint that made them look closed, but it wouldnt open. I don't understand why you would keep the door locked at a business when you have enough people there; if you dont trust leaving your door unlocked to accept patrons in, especially when expecting them, you probably shouldnt rent space there. After a while, a woman opened the door & stood in it to ask what I needed. I replied I had an appointment. She seemed confused, but let me in anyways & walked straight to the back. I took the initiative & sat on the couch in the dark lobby to wait. Reminds me of the saying: "You can put lipstick on a pig". The place had nice paint & decor, but still seemed run down.
After a while, another woman dressed in sweat pants & tank top came up to the front & rung out a man exclaiming how amazing she was. I assume that she is Amber, the person who would give my massage. They finally finished & she walked to the back wo saying a word to me. By this time, Ive decided that maybe I shouldnt have come, but I know you shouldnt judge a book by its cover.
A few minutes later she reappeared & asked if I had filled out the form. Of course, I hadnt - no one had greeted me or suggested that there was anything I needed to do. She handed me a pen & the clipboard that had a stack of general patient forms clipped to it & walked back to the back. I could pretty easily read the imprint from the person that filled one out before me. She came back & waited for me to get up to follow her. I did so, she showed me the room & gave me the usual instructions. I asked where the bathroom was. She looked at me as if this request was unreasonable just before an hour massage.
Pros: Didnt hesitate on pressure, the music wasnt terrible, she knew how to strip a muscle
Cons: Could be said that she used way too much pressure - I ended up having a couple of bruises, played music w ads, would skip songs, hands were rough & calloused, nails scratched me, shorted me 10 minutes
Ive had better massages
Afterwards, I start to pay for the service. Wait, they dont accept any plastic. I feel this is a pretty important thing that should be mentioned when making the appointment. It's the 21st century. The majority of America doesnt carry cash anymore.
I offered my license & headed off to the 7-11 to get some cash. I was gone about 40 minutes dealing w a related bank error trying to get cash. When I got back, she was gone. My license w her. She didnt tell me before I left that she had to leave soon, call me to tell me she was leaving, or leave my license so I could pay upon returning.
No. None of that happened.
I down play the getting cash part. Let me give you a taste. I am a female in Oklahoma's Harlam. Next to Fantasy Island. Trying to get $30 of my $500. It was getting dark. It was stressful & scary. Then they tell me they expect me to give them the check & come back the next morning (I live 23mi away) to pick up my license. Her reason for taking my license home w her? I stole a service. Uh... no. I left my license to show that I WASNT stealing. She wouldnt answer my phone calls. They told me that she wouldnt come back, deliver my license, or meet me.
The next day I called 2xs & informed them I was going to come make a payment & needed my license. "You gotta pay before we'll give it to you." I calmly said "I realize that; I will be there w a payment." Before heading there, I made sure to grab my checks for the account that has money in it. I tried 2 places to get some cash for her. Both denied me bc my pin wasnt set up & they couldnt take a check wo a driver's license (which Amber had). I decided that I wouldnt go alone. Once there, I started to write the check, but they wouldnt take it. I borrowed $25 from my friend. These people dont look like they take care of themselves. Im pretty sure that guy got a "special" massage. You only take cash? Sounds like money laundering.
