Ear Poking and Ass Slapping, Oh My! (Part 4)
(This is the final and part 4 of my personal and crazy experience of receiving a massage at one of the so, so many cheap foot reflexology businesses)
I was afraid to look at my friend and when I finally did, she looked straight at me and said “I hate you!” One of the complaints I hear from people is how they’ve been hurt during a massage and my friend was hurt! As I said in a previous post, she does like a deeper massage. However there is a difference between a deep massage and just being hurt during the process. I couldn’t even count how many times she told her guy that it was too hard, or he was hurting her. And after when we went to lunch, her neck was in pain! Her range of motion in turning her head became limited to where she could only turn her head ¼ of the way she usually could. Definitely not good for her or for return business!
I hope this doesn’t come across as just “bashing a competitor.” My intent on going was to see what they are doing that is different then me, what could I learn and why are people going there, besides just the cheap cost of it. I didn’t even intend to write about. Yet after the ridiculousness of it how could I not blog about! I’m still shaking my head and laughing over it! And I’m pretty sure if I did not have someone else with me to confirm this oddity of a massage, no one would believe it. I’ve had some really good massages and some not so good massages. Usually the not so good are the pressure is so light it’s basically a skin massage, body parts have been skipped as in not massaging my head or face, skipped out on time as they rush through my body, etc. However, again this was the most strange, oddest, absurd and nonsensical massage I have ever received and I really do not understand why someone would continue to go back to this business. So in the end, if you want a cheap massage, you’ll get a cheap massage. Me personally, I’d rather pay the cost for a great massage. It goes back to the old saying …. “You get what you pay for.”
