a massage in sf for $45...seems sketch, but i thought id give it a shot. i mean afterall i saw the tiny asain lady who was gonna massage me and figured nothing too bad could happen. i must say i was quite pleased with the overall massage. for such a little lady she packed some serious muscle, but not to the point of painful-at times it was the good painful. also, towards the end she left for a couple minutes and came back with hot towels which she used to wipe me down so i didnt have oil everywhere. the joint was not too spiffy, but not extremely gheto. yes they do ask for the money before, which is kinda unusual and a little tacky, but oh well. overall, id say if you not a total snob about appearances, give it a shot!
Pros: inexpensive, overall good massage
Cons: bland atmosphere, no communication between masseuse and customer
