Business response:

Hi Petra, we're sorry to hear that there was a noise in the room that was disturbing you. We encourage you to notify your therapist next time there's something like that happening during your session so that we can make an adjustment to the noise level.

I asked for a special massage for my problem. I feel I did not get that but the general massage I did get was very good. I was just disappointed that it was not just for my problem which was stated in my on line questionnaire plus on the phone when I originally called. I would never have booked a general massage. There is a lack of communication there. Being relaxed does not help to solve my problem.

Business response:

Hi Carol, we're so sorry to hear that your goals for the session were not met and that there appears to be a miscommunication. We'll give you a call to see what we can do to make this right. We appreciate your feedback.
