In an effort to maintain my massage a fortnight regime, and not stretch the family budget too much, I search through the discount websites Scoopon and Groupon from time to time. Often the services are simply too far for me to travel – my me-time is – like it is for all mamas – limited. When a deal in Hampton came up, being fairly close to home, I bought a voucher.
Harmony Relaxation is a Chinese massage business in the main shopping precinct of Hampton. The business is no frills – a basic shopfront with curtained massage tables set to one side and massage chairs to the other. I was seen promptly for my appointment. The therapist started working on my back with oil and using repetitive strokes. She then introduced the hot stones. What set this massage apart for me was the work she did on my calves, feet, toes and palms of my hands. The pain in these areas was intense! I had no idea of the tightness/ tension I had in these areas. The massage overall was pretty good.
I’ve learnt with many of the deal massage to realistically set my expectations. You are rarely going to find an inexpensive five star luxury experience. However if the massage itself, rather than the decor, ambience and customer service is what’s important to you, you can’t go wrong.
