Visited this shop on Saturday http://www.orientalmassages.co.uk/alton
- after having an appointment cancelled at short notice with an independent provider. This was my first experience of a 'shop' and so I don't have anything similar with which to compare it. I wasn't looking for FS, just a good massage with at least a decent HE.
I phoned around midday and arranged a 1 hour massage for that afternoon. The shop is fairly easy to find, although it's name outside is Chinese Medic. I was met at reception by an older lady with whom I think I'd made the booking. She took payment of £45 for the hour - the £5 off promotion still applies. I was introduced to the masseuse, Zoe. who I would guess was in her early 20's and who is not unattractive but who is quite plain.
Was shown into a small dimly lit room with a decent massage table and told to undress. When Zoe returned she asked me if I wanted firm or soft massage and I opted for firm. The massage itself was good and was certainly firm. About 10 minutes in her phone went off and she broke off to answer it which wasn't great. Then about 10 minutes later she stopped again as her dinner, which was cooking in a slow cooker in the corridor needed to be turned off - not the only thing turned off at that point. The back massage continued on for another 10 - 15 minutes before the whisper in the ear. After a bit of haggling I opted for B2B which I was assured would be the best I'd had for £50. Payment was made there and then (is this normal) and Zoe then proceeded to undress and do some B2B whilst on my back for about 5 minutes. Was then asked to turn over. Zoe then proceeded to massage my front which was I thought was rushed before moving on to the HE with much (fake) moaning on her part. The worst part was that at the end Zoe literally threw some paper towels on me and that was it, she proceeded to get dressed and I did the same. A peck on the cheek and I was back on the street 55 minutes after arriving. One other thing to note is that either Zoe was wearing a ring or she has very calloused hands as I came out fearing my back would be covered in scratches. It wasn't, but that is what if felt like.
Would I go back? For a massage yes, as I went in with an aching back and came out feeling a lot better, but the extras were disappointing to say the least.
Hope this helps someone.
