Tacky, with a side of cheese..
From the moment you walk in, this place screams cheesy.
You're first greeted by, I must say, some lovely people at the front desk. Maybe the only good part of my whole experience. They were friendly and to the point. However, one of my two visits there, there was a woman, who appeared to either be a manager or owner or something, who was being so rude to her employees. She never said a peep to me, but the way she was speaking to them completely turned me off from the place.
Next, after you fill out some paper work, you're asked to go into a "tranquility room" aka a dimmed, Ikea showroom. You sit there until your massage therapist comes and gets you. Why I couldn't sit in the front for this part, I don't know.
My first massage was a Maggie. THE WORST! The massage itself wasn't too bad, but she kept talking! And not talking about what she was doing, or what feels tight to her. Instead, she thought it was professional to tell me about her partying, and where she sleeps when she drinks, because she won't drink and drive. Why do I ever need to know this about my therapist? I don't! Tacky, trashy, and classless. If you need to listen to someones problems, head on over to Maggie. If you want a massage, avoid her at all costs.
The second time I went back (and mind you, I went back because their prices are so good, and for no other reason.) I made it very known that I didn't care who I saw, I just didn't want Maggie. I was placed with Adam. Adorable and amazing. He was completely professional and so skilled. I left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
On my way out, time to pay, the first time no one attempted to sell me a membership. The second time around, they were relentless. These people just can't take no. And it didn't seem like a conversation, or like they really believed in the product, it was completely scripted. Just awful. The worst thing, however, is the list framed on their counter telling you show much you should tip. I work in the service industry, and I have never seen anything as offensive or classless in my life. We can all do simple math, than you very much... and if your therapist didn't do a good enough job, they don't deserve a big tip.
All in all, I gave the place a couple of tries. I will never be returning, however, the only reason this is a 2 star and not a 1, is because of Adam. The rest was just awful.
Great Therapist , Nice Staff.
Nice, clean location. Wow , a great value for the money! I have paid over $100 and not gotten a great massage like the one I just had at the Elmhurst Massage Envy.
The best place in town for a therapeutic massage. The professional therapists were so good at understanding my needs and providing the best therapy for me. I have had massages from several of the therapists and each of them has been wonderful in their own way.
