The Rub, Newmarket

My blog is all about what I love so I decided to post other reviews of my findings and loving too! Little more insights of Katie's everyday life I mean. Fingers crossed that these will be interesting and helpful to those of you who are curious :p

First time I've been to The Rub, it was fantastic. Foot massage was lovely and relaxing. Second time was a little disappointing. My massage was not satisfying - there was less effort in each stroke and push. I think the effort and grace differentiates the great and just okay massages. Further, my masseuse kept getting disrupted as she had to attend new customers (there may have been a shortage of staff that day). However when I emailed the place with my experience, the owner apologized and asked me to come for a complimentary massage which was very understanding. Not all of business acknowledge their issue and try to rectify it.

When I went back today, it was amazing. My Shoulder, Neck & Back massage was so good I nearly dribbled. The masseuse was caring and considerate - every touch was carefully designed for my muscles to relax. 

The atmosphere was very clean and calming as it is quite a new place. We were served with sparkling water before and after the massage which showed us that they care about your hydration. I will definitely come back for more...

 Loved ♥ Massage and service was great. 

 Unloved  Massage beds are only divided with curtains so you can kinda hear your next door neighbour.

  1. There's no better deal than a complimentary massage! And it was nice that they really know how to take care of their patrons. A massage has to be soothing and relaxing; if there are any disruptions or sharp pain involved, it deviates from that standard. As for curtains, they are not a standard, though a lot of establishments use them Perhaps spacing them out could solve the noise problem. Anyway, thanks for sharing!
