wouldn’t really call this a relaxing massage. The guy was very rough with me even though I’d requested a medium level of pressure. I was very tight in the back muscles so he probably felt it was needed, but he was telling me not to tense up even though he was sticking his hand literally right under my shoulder blade and hurting me, which is something I’ve never had done before in a massage and wouldn’t really want repeated either. He was like “come on - no pain no gain” even though my reactions were involuntary anyway.
He did ultimately do a very good job of loosening my back and shoulders up a lot, but ive definitely had nicer hours. Probably wouldn’t go back here again, as I am used to actually enjoying massages
My masseuse was very competent. It really was a good experience: relaxing, addressing all of my back and neck tension and also very couteoous and clean.
Ivaylo was very professional and was constantly asking if the pressure was okay.
It was very relaxing and I will definitely wibe going back.
A great massage. Sasho is very good at his job!
I went for my massage with a person who didnt give his name on first initial meeting. We go into the room where he locks the door with a key. We then go through a initial consultation where I have to fill out a form which doesnt state to tick the boxes that relate to me. I then ask whether a sports massage is better for me than a deep tissue massage. I felt like it was an issue as he then goes on to say do you do sports what sports do you if you are having a sports massage then you will have to undress and I will have to give you a body analysis but a deep tissue massage I do not. It was the tone and the I cant be bothered attitude that did it for me. Why didnt you specify which massage you wanted he asked Erm because I wasnt given the option I reply. By this time I wasnt feeling that this energy exchange would improve so I said forget about the massage I am going. He then goes to unlock the door and I leave. After consulting with Groupon they offered me a credit discount which I will refuse and ask them to give it to charity. I feel that in this day and age a client should have privacy and that means leaving the unlocked room whilst they undress. I didnt get to that as I didnt want to continue with my massage. Some basic customer care I feel is needed. Instead of locking the door have a do not disturb sigh there as I saw on other doors. There are many vulnerable people in society and locking a door shifts the power dynamics for people who have to get undressed in a locked room. I will forfeit the money as a life lesson for me, money isnt everything and it is my fault for booking. The problem was by the time he scanned the groupon voucher it was already redeemend. I sent an email which I got no reply from. very very poor.
Great massage - right on with the pressure, it was perfect. Feel much better for it - thanks!
Ivaylo used just the right amount of pressure and his knowledge of anatomy, particularly relevant to runners, was very obvious. I was very happy with my treatment.
I would definitely recommend: he was very skilled and managed to undo a lot of the tension I was carrying!
Sasha was very pleasant. I asked for a sports massage as I have a painful chronic condition that affects my back. By the time I left my mucles were loose and I was feeling very relaxed. I would definitely recommend Sasho!!
