Not Worth the Money – I've been to Sage Spa twice only because an out-of-town friend bought me a spa package. I would have only gone once if I wouldn't have had more credit to spend. I do not like this "spa". I don't even know why they call it a spa. When I think of a spa, I think of a place I can go and relax.
I arrived at my appointment a few minutes early thinking I could relax a little in the sauna or steam room. They don't have either. I thought they would at least have me change into a robe before my massage. Nope. I had to take off my clothes and put them on in the same room I had my massage. My body was so oily from my massage. I didn't want to put my clothes back on without a quick shower. They don' t have showers either. On my second visit I asked if I could change into a robe and the girl behind the desk looked at me weird. She didn't know what to do or say. It was an awkward moment for the both of us. She made me feel like I was asking for something that was out of the ordinary.
The first time I had a massage at Sage the massage therapist was actually the best I have ever had. She was very talented with her work, but I couldn't get the sounds of the police sirens, cars driving down the road, or the customers talking outside in the lobby or in the manicure room out of my head. They do not have sound-proof massage rooms. The second time I had a massage was terrible. My first massage therapist doesn't work there anymore, so they gave me someone else. She was no where nearly as good as the fist therapist. In fact, she wasn't good at all. Spending $95 for a 55 minute massage is a lot of money for an "okay" massage and a below average facility.
I will tell you to save your money and go somewhere else. I don't see how this place stays in business.
