“To me luxury is to be at home with my daughter…and the occasional massage doesn't hurt.” Olivia Newton-John


When: January 15, 2013

Cost: I used a gift certificate I got for my birthday from my husband (back in June!) $50-$100

Why this is on my list? I LOVE a massage and I like to try all different types, I usually go for the deep tissue which really doesn't feel all that good but is supposed to have lasting results. Right now my back is killing me so I just wanted it to feel totally soothing!

Will I do it again? Well, I was actually a little upset with Massage Heights and swore I would not return to them after I used up this gift certificate but it ended up being the BEST massage I've ever had! I use to get them pretty consistently at a number of different places and I even had one massage that still leaves me to think that I must have been on a hidden camera show. Seeings how this was the best massage I've had in my 11 years experience of being rubbed down I have to say they won me over, I will return-even though I think they're overpriced and I was more than unimpressed with the sign posted at the front desk about gratuities. A sign which I scoffed at when I walked in- I really don't like being asked for tips...but as I said this kid deserved it so I happily relented.

Last year when I had my hot stone massage I wound up in the hospital the next day with vertigo so I was a little leery to be massaged again.

Something I would recommend? Yes, it was wonderful! This was also my first time being massage by a male and I have to say even though it was a little awkward (as I've been married for 8 years now) to be almost nude in a room with a strange man. Though I have to say-I think I prefer it-men do not talk as much and I think because of the male/female dynamic he was exceptionally professional.

Was it life changing? I guess I learned that there's something to be said for giving someone a second chance.


  1. Wow, you got vertigo after a hot stone massage?! I have never heard of anyone ever getting that after a massage!

    Have to agree that although deep tissue is rather an intense massage, considering the accident you had and the probable state of your back, i can see why it is the best treatment for you;-) Deep tissue massage is my speciality!

    I'm really glad you enjoyed your swedish massage and that it helped to soothe those aches and pains. I don't mind who i am massaged by, men do have bigger hands so cover a greater surface which some people prefer. As long as someone is massaging me i'm happy.

    Glad it was the best massage ever, it's always wonderful to receive an excellent massage.

    By the way, a swedish massage over here is around £30 - £35. Deep tissue is around £35 - £40. You do get some salons and spas that are totally over priced and really not worth it, but most people charge around the figures i have quoted for an hour's massage.xx

    1. I always say that if I were super rich I'd get a massage EVERY single day!!!! I love them!!

      Ok, so this place is practically double what is common in England- if I am correct that $90 is around £60.

      Ste is a lucky man to be with a professional masseuse!
