First let me qualify. I have had a variety of massages over the years, and in various places, and with various levels of satisfaction. Massages to me are like pizza - even a bad one is still pretty good. I am athletic and tend to like a stronger massage, so any dissatisfaction i've ever had with a particular massage usually centers around the masseuse exerting too little pressure.
I'd been to the Milagro Spa in Manasquan a few times before, and found their massages to be good. When I went in last Friday, it had been some time since my last massage, so I knew that I was going to enjoy it - i just didnt know if i was going to get 'the right one'.
Firstly, the front desk was very courteous and friendly. Francine (sp) and I had a good conversation about Newport RI (I had on a t-shirt from there). Joy was my masseuse. She was very nice, professional, personable, etc. The massage itself: The 50 minutes went by way too quickly. Joy did everything right. The pace was perfect - she conveyed relaxation to me - I know that sounds trite, maybe, but her demeanor, her instructions, and her touch, all put me at ease and in the perfect state of mind to enjoy the massage. Joy asked a few times how I was doing - was the pressure ok, was the herbal steam too strong, the compresses too hot.... everything was....just right.
When we were done, I stepped out of the room and was almost in a daze. For the rest of the day, I felt more relaxed. I decided that I needed to make this a more frequent part of my routine.
Thank you Joy, and thank you Mlagro Spa team!
