Only problem I have is at the desk trying to check out. Way too long. Also purchased a gift certificate and it took forever. Made appointments and all e-mail confirmations are the incorrect time.

I like the way that Mr. Pena, examples things to you. Allowing you to undstand each muscle strain and how your everyday life can effect it, if you don't take care of it. He gives great details of why you're feeling each tenderness and aches in each areas. Giving you techniques that you can use on your own time.

I liked that you took the time to understand where I wanted to focus and that you explained what you were feeling (ie. this is tight, you have a knot here, etc). During my massages, I like to relax so I would have preferred to keep conversation to a minimum.
