I booked a 90 minute Swedish massage and communicated with my therapist that I wanted medium pressure. About 30 minutes in, he was very aggressive with my back and I told him to go lighter repeatedly. I was expressing I was in pain. He would not let up. My body was sweating and shaking because it was so painful. I also noticed during the back massage that he was straddling my body(but not sitting on me). I have bruises from the massage and much pain. Unacceptable!
Product_Or_Service: Massage

Desired Settlement
I would like a full refund of $68 for a 90 minute Swedish Massage.
