The Massage Spa

Have you ever felt stiff all over because you spent a few more minutes at the gym working out just so you could see that one hunk flex his muscles? Or have you ever been worn out from all night partying and dancing at the smoky bar? Or maybe all you desperately need is some human touch, since the last time anyone has done that to you, well, has been an ungodly number of months ago? Fear not, just head over to your local St Petersburg spa, The Massage Spa located at 4101, Central Avenue (tel. 727- 327-6772). Opened just a little over a year ago by two lesbians, this spa offers both male and female therapists, including several gay ones ( I think), in a cozy, warm environment that is never sanitized or clinical. Forget their local competitor, Massage Envy, which comes across to me as overly clinical, and by the way, who came up with the idea of purple walls?

WIth rates as low as $44.00 for the one-hour session, and the availability of coupons (click herefor a current one), everyone can afford a massage. I went there late last year, and have been back just about every other month. Their rates are definitely lower than just about all the spas in St Pete or Tampa that I have researched. And the service is on the mark. My favorite therapist is John Scott, a straight man. He has strong hands! He specializes in neuromuscular therapy (which means, deep!), but like all other therapists at this joint, he does Swedish and Shiatsu too.

Go and give yourself a little gift. You worked hard, played hard, and now it is time to breathe and enjoy!
