Massage Envy Mall 205 Review

by Marie Rodriguez

Working is hard. All that time spent in front of a desktop, spine hunched over, getting the data keyed in the right, the number of times you had to forgo the elevator because it took too long and ran up the stairs, the morning you woke up with a neck cramp because you slept wrong the previous night, the nine to five routine dragging your body along with your soul, working is hard.

Not to mention all the times you convinced yourself that a late night out is the perfect solution to all your worries and stumbling home way too late and in much worse shape than what you had been earlier; yeah, that is not fun, either.

But do you know what the fun part of adulting and working is? That you earn. And you get to pamper yourself for everything you’ve been through.

The best way to gain that sublime stage of nirvana is a blessed massage that makes you question the kind of magic that your masseuse seems seeping into your flesh and bones.

And if you are looking for such a place where they work their wizarding charms, get those pesky knots out of your shoulder and the unshakable crick from your neck, and the low, pulsing ache from the base of your spine, we’ve got just the place for you.

Yelp Reviews

One of the Yelp reviews of this place reads, “I have to say I normally don’t write reviews, but I felt the need. I have had a few wonderful experiences here. But I had a kink in my neck and came in; this amazing front desk girl, Stephanie, helped me. She assured me that my therapist would be able to help get that kink out, and oh boy, did he! My neck has never felt better. She also explained the membership so well that even when I asked her to repeat the same things a few times, she never got frustrated and just smiled. Fast forward a few months, and she is still very helpful, and they have a new girl, Embray, who is also amazing. She is always super attentive and finds the dates I need and the perfect timing for me. I want to say 205 front desk is the BEST. Not only that, but amazing therapist as well. If you have not tried massage, give massage envy mall 205 a shot.”

Another review has a slightly less positive tone. “This is not my regular massage envy location, but I’d say that, generally speaking, this ME is so hit or miss.

Besides the location not being greatly located (the blankets/sheets feel quite old), it also has paper-thin walls, making relaxation difficult. The therapists I’ve had are either horrible or amazing. In my first massage here, I was bruised on my neck from the therapist going too deep, even after asking for the pressure to be released…. but when I came back to try another therapist (giving the location a second chance), I had better success. Of course, it’s always best to stick with one consistent therapist once you find one, but that experience was alarming.

I also have found the front desk staff to be either average in customer service or, at worst, unwelcoming. Maybe that’s just me, but I haven’t felt welcome when arriving or leaving.

I will end this by saying Jill is amazing, and the next time I’m in Portland for work, I will be booking with her in a heartbeat! She is a keeper, really a magician with shoulder tension.”

However, the place is mostly touted as price-friendly and gets the job done more than satisfactorily.
