When I activated my 3 month membership, I have had nothing but trouble with this location. From mixing me up with another people, failing to call when changes were made to the schedule, errors on my account. The manager was flippant and dismissive of me when I called to clear this up. When I stated I never wanted to use their services again he didn't care. He is in customer service and should care. I wonder how many other customers left because of this location's staff. The front staff, clearly does not know what they are doing and are unprofessional. The manager doesn't know what he is doing. It is too bad, I started at this location in 2011 and was really happy with it until the new management took over and now I have no desire to ever use them again or any Massage Envy for that matter.
AVOID THIS PLACE! They will get you to sign an open ended service agreement. They will verbally misrepresent the time frame for the monthly agreement. They will bill you $50/month whether you use it or not. They will convince you to have them bill your HSA account which you will not notice. Months will go by and they will continue to extract their monthly fee without your knowledge. You will pay them for NO SERVICE PROVIDED until you take action or until the HSA account is depleted!! They will be completely inflexible in the aftermath. These open ended contracts need to be declared ILLEGAL by the MN STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL: Lori Swanson! Avoid this establishment at all costs. They are a franchised establishment and my experience is with the Maple Grove location.
Their membership contracts are a scam! They tell you its terms are 12 month then conveniently leave the dates off the contract. Then they automatically charge your card every month after that year without your consent! To top it off...if you try to cancel they make you sign another BS contract that says you must use all remaining sessions within a short time period or you lose them! Dishonest thieves!!!
Massage Envy has stolen $1,430.00 from me in prepaids. I will not let them have my credit card so they will not give me the massages, I have purchased. Massage Envy kept overcharging my credit card. I have been a member for 8 years. All the people that were honest have left. They have children running the outfit. They keep telling me, It is Corporate I must speak with. There is no operational Corporate telephone number. I must take them to Court to retrieve my funds. Buyer Beware.
Beware! You can get a massage anywhere. The important thing is the Customer Service you receive and Massage Envy has the worse Customer Service. They are thieves and will steal your money. Their tactic is to lock you into contracts of 6 months or longer. If you cancel the contract that you rightfully fulfilled by paying every month, paying in full, but don't use your massage every month to save it for future months, they then give you a time limit of something like 30-60 days after you end your contract to use them or you lose them. This is a bad way of doing business and just tells you that they don't retain clients. I lost 2 of the 6 massages paying around $65 per month after ending my contract because I couldn't use them in that 60 day window. It makes no sense to me why a massage place would do this, I cancelled because I still planned on going, just not every month. I will never go back there. Don't give Massage Envy your business.

I have been a ME customer for over seven years at the 1208-D W Broad St, Falls Church, VA 22046 location. Because I occasionally travel overseas for weeks or months at a time, I "freeze" my account using their "Freeze" status. All automatic billing should cease. In the three times that I used their nonsense "freeze" feature, they continued to charge my card every single month. I spent hours talking with clueless Massage Envy associates that promised that it would be different next month -- it never was. They still charged my account over and over, despite the confirmation of a "freeze." Because the last freeze (October of 2017) was apparently never processed (I have a photocopy of the signed form), they CONTINUED to try and charge the card on file. My bank changed from Mastercard to VISA that month, and I had not updated my card with Massage Envy as I was traveling and I thought it was "frozen."
Upon my return, I stopped by the Massage Envy to try and schedule a massage. The associate told me that I had no sessions left when I was expecting to hear "thirteen." I explained the situation to the associate (account had been frozen, etc.), and she said that "we can't find any record of that. Your card was declined when we tried to charge your monthly membership fee." Of course it was declined! It is a totally different card, and the Massage Envy associates didn't "freeze" my account.
I was not very happy, to say the least, knowing that hundreds of dollars were thrown away because of their mistakes. Of course none of them had the power to do anything, except sign people up and schedule appointments. They asked me if I would like the manager to call me, and I said "Yes... Please" and left my business card. No manager ever called... In fact, I have not heard from them again. I can still log on to the Massage Envy portal that looks like it was created in the late 1990's, and that has similar functionality. It's a total joke -- all of it.
I would stay far, far away from this Massage Envy or any other one. As a successful serial entrepreneur and investor, it is stunning to me that they would flippantly screw over a long time (7+ years?!) customer over a trivial administrative error that employees should have the ability to resolve quickly. Instead, their actions show that they could care less about having me as a customer. I would give them a zero or negative rating if it was possible with your system. Massage Envy is a total farce, and I would set up some Google alerts to see when all of the different class action lawsuits get filed for deceptive marketing practices, fraud, etc. Go anywhere else!
If there were negative stars available, I’d rate using them. My complaint is so lengthy, I don’t want to lose the reader. Therefore, the crust is this: I paid for three memberships for myself and two of my children. After canceling one Acct, I tried to have all unused sessions transferred to my acct since I was the one paying for them. Was told, "No, couldn’t do that". ME continued to charge my card for the closed account. When I realized this, I canceled my account as well as my daughter’s. My daughter texted me this morning indicating my bank notified her there was a charge of $55 from ME and wanted to know if it was legit. She said, "NO". I have since audited my CC acct only to realize I have been continually charged since all accounts have been canceled. If I knew of a class action suit, I’d jump on the bandwagon. This company has poor and inconsistent business practices.
I have a monthly membership and apparently went in a little too early to get my first “FREE” monthly massage. No one told me that I was scheduling too early and they would not allow me to switch my account to a different location after I left a job and no longer had to drive 45 minutes out of my way to get my monthly massage. Obviously, there is a huge lack of communication. Buyer beware. I am cancelling my membership.
I purchased a membership at Massage Envy in Bellevue, Ne for headache relief. Due to my doctor's advise I was told to discontinue my service there and see a chiropractor. So I canceled my membership thru the Dr. letter to them. I had used 3 of the 4 massages that I paid for, they advised me that I would still be able to use the remaining service after cancelation, however in that conversation they neglected to tell me that it does expire in 60 days. When I called to get the apt for my remaining service they said I have none left in my acct. I am so furious with these people as this was a service that I paid for. Even if my membership was canceled or not I should have still been able to use the service that was paid for!! This place and its customer service is a joke! I would NOT recommend anyone go there, all they will do is push this "wonderful" membership on to you then not even let you use what was paid for!
Sooo... there are so many bad reviews here. I was gifted a massage. I was really pushed to do the monthly membership and since at the time my disabled daughter was riding the bus home I had time after work to do this. So sadly I signed up. BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER. I have been charged 4 times so far and have used only 1 massage which I gifted to my husband. Not only was the "hour" long massage only 50 min long, it was a horrible experience for my husband and he refuses to go back.
Also, my disabled daughter's bus schedule changed so now I have to pick her up after school and would have to now drive 45+ minutes just to get to a Massage Envy location. THEY WILL NOT CANCEL MY MEMBERSHIP. I didn't ask for a refund for the 3 months that were already charged just to cancel the rest since I can't get there. Instead they intend to take $720 from me for 1 massage. I'm the wife of a disabled veteran and mother of a disabled child. I don't have extra money to waste. I am very disappointed in these people. I HIGHLY recommend against this place. Please please please go somewhere else. Listen to ALL the people leaving reviews here. There is only 1 positive review and that "person" did not leave any comments so I doubt it's a real person.
The Town Square site closed its doors failing to formally notify members of this action and further options. I have been undergoing oral surgery for much of this year and could not utilize my membership paid massages. I did not worry because although I keep my monthly payments up to date I knew I'd have pre-paid credits to use when I felt up to resuming my massages.
Imagine both my surprise and shock when I tried to schedule a massage and learned that the Town Square Massage Envy site had closed its doors without providing membership notification. Both Chelsea and Theressa at Corporate Headquarters in Scottsdale, AZ have failed to resolve the issue of the $300.00 plus dollars owed me in pre-paid credit. Massage Envy and I entered a contract. I did not break it. Massage Envy did and I will continue to explore all avenues for a positive resolution. I have lost all confidence in Massage Envy's ability to make customer satisfaction top on their priority list.
Was given a paid subscription to Massage Envy in Spartanburg from my children for 6 visits. Really had no problem with any of the massages until this last visit on Sept 29, 2017. Chrissy the girl doing my massage was horrible. This girl needs to go back to school. This was the worst massage I have ever had anywhere ever. She did not know anything at all about giving a massage. All she did was rub some lotion on my back. No massage at all. Rub the top of my shoulders and rub the same spot on my neck so long I thought she was going to make it sore.
Lifted the sheet no higher than my kneecaps on the back of my legs and rubbed lotion on my calves and my heels. Rubbed lotion on the tops of my arms and the palm of my hands. When she went to do the tops of my legs, lifted the sheet to my shins and rubbed lotion on my shins and some on the heel of my feet. She never got off her little stool. It wasn't worth my time going all the way over there and my 8 year old granddaughter could have done a better job than this girl. The worst ever. Don't waste your time.
I had been given a gift certificate for a free massage by a relative who works for Massage Envy in another state. Upon arriving for my appointment, I presented my certificate. The receptionist said they were going to do this and that. I said "Whatever the gift certificate covers". The massage therapist, a man, was horrible. Very lackluster massage. He talked the entire time about a pyramid scheme he thought I should get involved with. I immediately told him no, and to please stop talking about it. He continued, to the point that I decided to leave no tip.
When leaving I was presented with a bill for $120! I reminded them of the gift certificate but was told it was good for only $40 off! So this ridiculous massage was supposed to cost $160? Way, way, way over the going rate here. My relative who gave me the certificate was outraged. Needless to say, I'll never go back and have convinced others to go to other massage therapists. These people in Miamisburg are scam artists.
April, the manager of this location has completely resolved this situation. Though not a fan of the company's overall policy, she's been very helpful. Be sure you know - fully - what you're getting into and if it goes south pray you find an understanding, compassionate soul that's willing to help.
I stopped in to get a massage a couple weeks ago, ended up getting a facial as well at a new store on Germantown Road, Memphis, TN. Couldn't get out of bed due to pain for nearly a week following massage and got an eye infection along with acne breakout (I'm 51 and way past that) immediately following treatment. Suspect skin allergy to Murad products... Was verbally conned into signing their contract enticed by discounted services for the day. I say 'conned' because the young girl who says she's actually manager of the location did not disclose the fact that their contracts can NOT be canceled before 12 months are over.
To the contrary, she told me that I would only need to personally 'come in' to the location to cancel which I did yesterday, now that I'm able to get around again, at which time the girl (manager) told me I had to have cancelled within 3 days of signing their lengthy contract. I was stunned to say the least. When I told her that she didn't explain that on the front end she basically called me a liar and told me I'd signed and initialed their contract. She's correct only in that I did indeed sign and initialize the paperwork. My downfall was trusting that she truthfully disclosed the contract terms in her explanation; she did not. DO NOT EVER do business with these crooks. Worst management staff in existence and shoddy business ethics!
My wife was sexually assaulted at the Massage Envy on Spring Green in the Kroger Center in Katy, Texas. I have contacted the Manager and the Corporate office. The owner has not called me back even though I will press charges with the Katy Police. This is not a safe place. My wife still has 18 hours of credits and I have been a member since 2008. Warning... do not go here!
My experience yesterday at Massage Envy was a disaster. The massage therapist was not pleasant with her overall attitude. I wanted deep tissue massage (what I normally would get) and she did more of a deep surface rub and I wound up this morning with massive bruising on my back and glutes. I was unable to sleep and unable to sit with my back touching anything. I've never experienced anything like it. I am extremely dissatisfied.
Caution when you cancel!!! I was a member at the Warren, NJ location for just over 2 years and was usually happy with their services. This year I have had some medical issues arise so I needed to cancel my membership. There is no information online as to how to go about or what is required short. Since mobility is a real issue for me now I called and learned that you must cancel at the location you signed your agreement with. I was able to locate the email address for my location as well as the Home Office. On June 5th I emailed my intent to cancel to my location and cc'd the Home Office. I received a response with the required form needed. I emailed the completed form on June 9th again to my location and cc'd the Home Office. I received no reply that there was any issue. On July 11th I received a phone call that "My payment had been processed and would I like to schedule an appointment".
I stated that I had canceled my membership and had emailed the form back on June 9th. They immediately refunded my payment. I thought that would be the end of it. Wrong! Just to make sure, I checked my credit card statement and sure enough there was a charge on August 11th!!!! I tried calling but was only able to leave a message as they were renovating the location. I did not receive a call back that they got my message and were correcting the problems. So I drove down and walked in. Granted I was not in the best of moods but I feel I had a right to be a little upset since 2 1/2 months later they were still billing my credit card... Illegally. I was in no way rude nor was I even loud.
I was told that only the manager could cancel an account and they were not there today. I attempted to say when I had sent in the form, but the girl behind the counter apparently didn't want to hear it as she began speaking over me "Mam, I can see all that information in my computer". When I pointed out she didn't need to be pissy she claimed she wasn't. Why would I know what you can see??? You have told me nothing about what information you have. I explained that her most current statement and tone were uncalled for as I was trying to provide her with copies of the email string and the form for her manager so they could finally do their job. Miraculously she was able to cancel my account.
You can bet that I will be checking my credit card statement every month from now on to ensure they aren't hitting my card again. If I see a September payment, I will have to take this to the next level. For anyone looking to cancel you should be able to find your location's store number online, "Massage Envy (city,state) store number". Their email address should be "clinic(store number)@massageenvy.com" and the home office is firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck and pay attention to your credit card!!!
My granddaughter and I needed a massage. We both just basically got no results from either massage therapist, my granddaughter said she would not rub her. It was against policy to rub more than softly and she asked her to massage an area where she had a knot, she was talking the whole time. The worst she ever had. Her 4 year old sister could of done better. I have been in the beauty industry and my ex boyfriend was a therapist. I got many massages and the one Massage Envy gave me was a joke. All I received was a oil bath and he would not rub me at all, I got off his table and told him I won't get any effects from his massage. What kind of massage are they performing. They were the biggest rip off and I was stressed out after leaving there. The staff offered nothing. Do not go to Massage Envy. BEWARE.
I was considering a membership to Massage Envy. It is basically a legal contract so I wanted to get a copy to review it before signing. They don't provide the details on their web page so the contract is the only place you can see them. They would not provide a copy until I signed up. The only option they offered was to come in and read it there. You should be able to review any legal document ahead of time and even allow your lawyer to review it if you would like. Their reasons for not providing it aren't valid. It appears they don't really want consumers to fully understand what they are getting into. After doing some research I can see why there are so many complaints regarding their practices and decide NOT to pursue a membership.
I have had some decent massages from Massage Envy, but with that said, I have had some horrible ones as well. One, in particular, was reported, and the people behind the desk acted as though it was funny. They did not offer to have it replaced or have another therapist provide the service. The concept, in general, is horrible. It keeps the clients paying up the "rear end" for life. I absolutely DESPISE the way they do business, and there should be more class-action lawsuits on them. If a person has a life change that does not allow them to avail themselves of the services, it is just "too damned bad". They continue to rip the clients-off. I only hope and pray that they will go out of business or that some other entities file another successful "class-action" lawsuit.
The other thing I despise about Massage Envy is the fact that if you have a facial, they make you use their own supplies, Murad. I personally do not care for Murad. It does nothing for me or my skin. The customers are not allowed to bring in their own preferred brand of skin care to use. I absolutely dislike the way Massage Envy does business. If there is another class action lawsuit action, please let me know.
This was a few years ago. I went to Massage Envy. The first time I went I had a female. It was good. Then I was given a certificate for a facial and massage. Both were male, first facial it was ok, then I had a male for massage and it was so painful and I told him and he noticed how tense I was so he stop. Then did the same thing, happened again, painful again. I just took like a idiot. Then it was over and then I went to the front desk. I did mention it but then she asked if I talked to the male who and I said yes but I didn't take to management. I did and I really feel I should of been tougher but I was but I wouldn't never go there again.
In May 2017 I cancelled my membership. I went to the location to pay the penalty for early cancellation. I was told there would be no penalty and furthermore that they had set aside a free massage for me. I did not use the free appointment. In July I noticed they had continued charging my account. When asked they said it was the penalty and that I could freeze the account but that I would have to pay all of the remaining Months. My gripe is that they said no penalty just to then penalize me anyway. In my world that is no integrity. In May they cancelled my appointment without informing me. I highly recommend you not buy this.
This is the worst facility (BEVERLY HILLS LOCATION) in the world. First the owner is stupid as hell. Employs even people lower than her. That is why is such a high turnaround. I cancel my appointment. Have my notes from another locations and coming here because the technician Sharon is the best... The so called Office Manager (**. Her appearance is terrible no class.) no greetings.
Facial complete and they stated that Downey stated I did not cancel on time really so she claimed I owe. False information. So she tried charging for services (I blocked them from ever getting my funds) and did not call me, the owner or the office manager. They called my daughter really. Ask yourself what was she going to do? Not only did she give my daughter information about my account she told her my credit card information. Called corporate and basically they stated that they are a franchise and they will call them. Owner called me this morning and all she was revealing was that I cursed her employee out. Yes I did and I will do it again...
And but I filed a criminal misdemeanor complaint that this individual gave credit card and personal information to my daughter. I also made a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. The owner is a sad desperate individual that instead of keeping or listening to the customer they listen to employees. Is funny I hope she sees this review. Your employees are leaving you stupid because you are not a good boss... They hate you and they hate working for you. You cannot keep anyone. Get lessons from Glen Ivy.
I was a member of Massage Envy for several years. When I decided to quit I was still charged and got pushed around by various managers and people. They did everything they could to charge me more and keep taking money from me. Once you take someone's money you are responsible for delivering that service. Massage Envy seems to be in the business of stealing and scamming customers if and when they decide to not have a membership. The best way to avoid this is to no join and not give them your business. You will be better going to another business that will honor your worth as a customer and not steal from you. New and old customers Beware!
I had a Massage Envy gift card that had expired over a year ago. I called corporate to tell them the link expired, they looked up my name and send me a PDF that I could print that never expires. It was the behavior one would expect but I had seen such bad reviews I was happy to see how warm and quick to respond they were.
This was my original email sent prior to a phone call and my second follow email today and have yet to get a response. "I was excited about your company until now. I have previously gotten treatments here when I lived in New Jersey, and now Florida. I bought my sister a Mother's Day gift certificate that is a moment I can't take back. I paid for the service online. Came out of my bank account. Yet, she never received it on her special day. At this point, I'd like to know what's going to happen!? I put my email, as the buyer, **, my sister email as the receiver at **. I do not have a confirmation # because it never loaded on the site as it just said to wait a moment and that's it. Please advice as to what's going to happen."
I am a member of a wonderful Massage Envy in Rockville, MD. However, I have always been able to schedule appointments at other Massage Envy's throughout the U.S. as I used to travel a lot for work. This past week I was able to schedule an appointment closer to work at the Gaithersburg Crown location. The therapist was very helpful and suggested I return for one more appointment so she could continue the work she had started. I made an appointment for a return while in the store - but had to call to change that appointment (per their policy - 24 hours in advance).
When I tried to reschedule, the woman told me they could not do so without a credit card number. I asked why and she said it was in case I didn't show up. I told her I thought they used the credits I have on file (over 10 hours of massages) and she said they do - but just in case I didn't have any left she needed it. This was a 1 time appointment. I don't understand and the woman I talked to told me I'd have to call back to speak to a manager. I gave up after 2 attempts where I was left on hold for over 10 to 15 minutes. Instead, I've sent a message to corporate via FB yesterday and they said they would have someone contact me and I've still heard nothing.
NO availability of appointments. Must make multiple attempts to get an appointment and then they cancel or they overbook or they only have 90 minutes appointments available - wanting to uncharge. Customer service is absolutely horrible. Highly recommend NEVER to step foot into Massage Envy.
It is with great disappointment that I write this review. Last Friday, 3/31/17, I went into the Golden Valley Massage Envy clinic after mailing a package at the post office. I wanted to know if they might have any 90 minute openings with one of the two therapists I have seen. They told me that one might have a 120 minute opening on Sunday, but they would have to give me a call back to confirm that the massage therapist could do 120 minutes.
I called back today (4/3/17) because I never received a callback. My call was not focused on the fact that I never received a callback, but whether or not there were any future openings. I have been a member at the Golden Valley location for many years. I was beyond appalled at the woman who I initially spoke to. She implied that I was lying about going into the location on 3/31/17. She said all the therapists had been booked for a long time and it didn't make sense what I was saying. I asked to speak to the manager. The woman hung up on me.
I called back. I was on hold for 15 minutes. I hung up and called back again. I asked to speak to the manager. The woman who identified herself as the manager was extremely hostile and once again implied that I was fabricating a story about stopping into the clinic at 3/31/17. I told her that the customer service she was exhibiting was absolutely unacceptable. She began to yell at me. When I asked her for her name she refused to give it to me. I asked four times before she gave it to me -- Molly.
I am absolutely appalled and disgusted with this incredibly hostile customer service. I have paid my dues as well as both of my daughters' dues for many years. It was absolutely unacceptable. If it hadn't been for the fact that I spoke to two different people today who were equally rude and hostile I would have chalked it up to someone having a bad day. I cannot in all good consciousness recommend the Golden Valley.
I called back tonight at 8:10 and the woman told me to call back on April 17th when Annie would be back in town. I suggested that I was paying monthly fees (I've paid for four people for more than one year) and that Annie might have the responsibility for calling me. The woman absolutely agreed and apologized for my experience. That would be an example of customer service. It's unfortunate that it take a formal complaint to get someone's attention.
I booked a couples massage for this place 2 weeks ago. When my fiance and I arrived (on time) we were told from the receptionist that the couples room was overbooked, and told us we could reschedule or we could get our massages separately. I said, "No! that's not what I paid for." The manager was just as worse, with an attitude. Overall, it was an inconvenience. I would not recommend this place to anyone, especially this location. I was treated unfairly. On a good note I booked at a different spa and I'm satisfied!
