A few weeks ago, my friend asked me if I knew of a good place to get a decent massage. Having never gotten a massage before, I knew nothing about any of the spas around town. So what do I do? Yelp it of course.
After reading the other reviews here, I figured this would be the best place for the price range, and I was not disappointed at all. After the initial fear of some random woman rubbing me down, and not knowing how many articles of clothing to take off (!), I had an amazing experience. All the soreness in my muscles from lifting weights went away. A $68 massage for an hour that seemed like 10 minutes it was so relaxing, what more could I ask for?
The only reason I do not give this place 5 stars is because my friend I went with (who has more experience getting massages) did not like hers at all. Oh well, I had a very relaxing time!
Clean & Traditinal. This is a good place. It is not really a five-star place, but I am giving it five stars because this place is reasonably good, cheap, relatively clean, conveniently located, and the workers are uncharacteristically nice. The therapists are generally very good, but they aren't always consistent in what they do. For example, there are some who'd give you one of those "cirque du soleil" massages, hanging from bars, while others opt for more traditional methods. So, if you are particular about what kind of massage you want, you need to be very clear about what it is that you want.
TUINA !!!!! DECENT MASSAGE.
I went with a friend after reading the other reviews and we loved it. Totally no nonsense Tuina -- not Swedish or anything like that. The woman immediately found the areas where I have tenseness and focused on them. She did a great job. Everything about the place is fantastic: clean, bathroom, not creepy once you actually get into it. Obviously, this is no fancy spa, but it is a very decent massage at a fair price. The workers are clearly being paid only their tips, so keep this in mind and tip well. They claim to offer a $5 off deal on weekends, but I think you have to ask to get it.
They even give you tea afterward. My masseuse was Judy and she did great work.
THIS PLACE ROCKS!!.
I get a lot of massages and this place rocks.
They provide a serious, no frills kind of massage. Everyone is incredibly friendly and the masseuses are really conscious of what needs to be worked on. I like really strong/hard massages and this place gets the job done. While it is a "no frills" place it is very CLEAN and well taken care of.
The $68 price tag can't be beat. I'd take this over an expensive spa massage any day.
Was this review ...?
Useful Funny Cool
I am a bit of a whore for massages though I prefer the title "massage enthusiast." As such, I was extremely excited to find SamSun/Sunrise Bodywork.
It hurts so good.
They provide the perfect massage environment for someone who is looking for a serious, no frills kind of massage. Everyone is incredibly friendly and the masseuses are really conscious of what needs to be worked on. I go in to for a massage not to nap but to really feel the work (magic) being done and if you're looking for the same, your search should definitely stop here.
I was once treated to a $300 massage at a bougie spa and the massages I've received here are about 10 times better. $68 for an hour and you're still sitting there reading? Really?
