The only thing was that it was cold outside of the room so coming and going was uncomfortable. I also wanted to spend a little more time on my troubled area - lower back. Otherwise everything else was great and the massage was relaxing.

Thank you Valerie for your feedback. I will work to make it much more comfortable and warm. I would love to see you again and definitely concentrate more on your trouble areas as well.
