I visited Kelly Spa in Scarborough two weeks ago. They are located at 4385 Sheppard Ave East, near Sheppard and Brimley and their website is Kelly-Spa.com
They were adverising a 1 hour massage on craigslist for $35 which is a real bargain, so I decided to check it out Friday afternoon, after work.
I was greeted by a very friendly, older Chinese lady and was told that the 1 hour massage advertised is actually a combination of 30 minutes of foot massage and 30 minutes of body massage. She asked me if I wanted a male or a female attendant. I chose a female attendant and got a decent looking Chinese girl around 35. She was wearing long pants and a t-shirt, nothing sexy or seductive.
The foot massage: I was told to leave all my clothes on, sit in a comfy massage chair and just roll up my pants up to my knees. There was an LCD TV mounted on the wall and I was asked if I wanted to watch TV. I said "no", so I ended up just listening to some low-volume relaxing instrumental music which was pumped into the room through some speakers in the ceiling. The masseuse brought in a bowl of warm water with some herbal foot powder in it and let my feet soak in that for about 15 minutes, while she left the room. She then came back, sat on a stool by my feet and started massaging one foot at a time, while the other foot, covered with a towel was resting on a foot-stool. The foot which was not being massaged was always wrapped in a towel and this was done (I assume) to prevent my foot from feeling cold. The masseuse asked if it was OK for her to use gloves during the foot massage and I said "sure". I am not sure whether or not she was worried about getting some warts or other skin disease by massaging people's feet, hence the request for permission to use gloves. Anyway, this was something "new" for me. In my 15 years experience of visiting MPs, this was the first time I have been massaged by a masseuse wearig gloves! Her massage technique was quite good, the foot massage was very pleasurable and I could not even feel the thin surgical gloves on her hands, because she was using a massage cream on her gloved hands in order to make the gloves slippery.
The body massage: took place in the same room, but lying face down on a massage table. I was told to remove all my clothes, but LEAVE MY UNDERWEAR ON. I did leave my cocker spaniel hanging out of my underwear just to give the masseuse a "clue" that I would be interested in some extras, but none were offered. After about 30 minutes of RMT quality body massage (no gloves this time), I was told to turn over. I thought: OK, here comes the good part, but she just massaged my face (she asked for permission beforehand) for about 5 minutes, thanked me for my visit and was about to leave the room when I quietly asked her if she could give me a HJ, but she said: "I'm sorry, we only do massage here" and she left the room.
The happy ending: I gave myself a HJ, so I don't really need to go into much detail here.
On my way out, I paid the elderly Chinese lady the $35 (she did not ask for the money up front). She asked me if the massage was good. I told her "yes, it was very good". She then asked if I could please leave a tip for the girl. I gave her $5 and she was happy with that. (I have no way of knowing whether she actually gave the $5 tip to the girl or if she kept it for herself).
Final thoughts: For $40 (including tip) I had the pleasure of having my feet and body massaged by a lovely masseuse. The massage was RMT quality. The room as well as the washroom which was down the hall were very clean. There was plenty of parking in the plaza where this MP is located.
On the other hand, there were no "extras" available, which was a bit disappointing. This is a situation I have run into at a few other spas before and I know that it depends not only on the spa, but on the masseuse as well.
So, if you are looking for a great massage at a bargain price, I would definitely recommend this place. If you are looking for "extras", look elsewhere.
