Massages last about 35 minutes, not worth taking off your clothes. However, I have been informed that the massages are "gifts." I've been informed that the reason I am required to pay the monthly fee is to belong to the club. The only benefit of the club, of course, is the massage. If I have accrued "gifts" but fail to pay my next month's fee, the gifts are not available to me. And they make getting out of the contract incredibly complicated. Massage Envy is kind of a scam, actually. It would be easy to just submit if the massages were worthwhile. Mostly, you just wish that they'd be over.
