with appointment pre-booked, and directions
in hand - off you go for your massage.
All the parlors are of a similar nature.
There is a reception area of some sort;
most have a waiting area, rooms for the
massage and a bathroom. All have music
playing, both in the lobby and the rooms.
Many also have large screen televisions
in the waiting area. The higher end "spa's"
will offer you a complimentary coffee
or soft drink Fit and finish of the parlors
vary widely, but are generally in line
with the price. Higher price, nicer facilities.
Note, I said facilities - not attendants.
This is where the next key choice comes
If it doesn't look clean or smell clean
- it's not clean! Parlors I am referring
to specifically, but this rule is universally
true. I will not spend my time or money
in an unclean parlor. There are costs
associated with laundering towel sets
after each customer, general maintanence
of the facility, and regular cleaning
of showers and bathrooms. If it looks
like they don't care about their "office"
what makes you think they care about their
staff or customers?
