I returned this week for a second deep tissue massage. Abbie is an excellent therapist and was keen to adapt to exactly my requirements (I wanted an hour-long back and shoulder massage). The room was quiet and comfortable and I was invited to take a shower afterwards, which was very welcome given the 30C heat outside. I will be back.
Not a great experience. On the positive side, the staff were friendly and welcoming, the massage room was adequate and the therapist was well meaning.
You don't go for a massage at Fitness First expecting pampering. So I didn't mind the noise of sirens wailing along Tooting High Road, nor did I mind when a mobile phone rang in the treatment room.
However, the treatment was poor. I'm not even convinced that the therapist had been properly trained or had sufficient experience. She showed no real empathy or "touch" and was pretty much ineffectual.
At least it was cheap. But I think I would have got as much benefit from a walk in the park and a nap.
I had a great massage from Abbie. She discussed my requirements in details beforehand (I wanted her to focus on my back) and Abbie did a great job. The room was small and dark, but nicely insulated and "spa like". Great location beside Clapham Common Tube. All good.
