    Cat massages available at truckstops

    Has anyone ever taken advantage of the massages available at the major truckstops. I saw them the whole time I was out this summer with my BF, but wasn't too sure about them. I didn't know if they are available only to truckdrivers or if they are available to anyone. If anyone has used them, can you give me some pros and cons?? Prices?? Thanks

    I have not, but have heard of drivers that use them. They are suppose to be good for circulation problems from sitting all day long. A lot of older drivers use them. I have no idea what they cost, but they say if you get a good therapist that you can feel it for several days.

    Yeah I got one down south somewhere cant remember but it was like 25 bucks for 15 or 20 minutes for a neck and back massage. Was worth it and them asian women can sure give a good massage.

    They are not "Spa" quality - and they are not XXX roadside health spa rubs either...


    pretty basic - no frills

    usually ran by orientals.

    Wow. In Buffalo if the massage place is Asian, they offer happy endings.

    I decided to get one. It was one of the big 4 Truck stops in PA. I really enjoyed it, but when it got close to the end, I was offered something I wasnt looking for. I would of been fine with a "normal ending" and I will leave it at that.

    Talk about putting stress back into my day. Grabbed my clothes and left.

    It bugs the heck out of me when my husband walks into the truckstop alone, and is hounded by a swarm of Asian women eagerly asking, "Massage? You want massage?"

    And yet, when I walk in alone, or WITH my husband, they ignore us altogether.

    I am female and have NEVER been approached by one of these Asian ladies and offered a massage. Not that I'd really be that interested, but it creeps me out to see how eagerly they seek business from the men. If they were professional massage therapists, gender wouldn't make a difference....I think they cater mostly to lonely men who want a backrub from a pretty Asian girl, nothing much else.

    Case in point, a former friend of mine dropped over $500 getting repeated massages from a massage lady at the Ontario East TA (existed for a brief time & was closed down).....He hauls cars & spends a LOT of time there- days & weeks on end. She spoke hardly a word of English but she was cute and gave good backrubs, and he developed an obsession with her. She ended up conning him into marrying her so she could get citizenship, and last I heard had sucked every last dime of savings & inheritance out of him to "repay" whatever Chinese mafia scam that was responsible for smuggling her into the country.

    IMO if you want a massage your time & money would be better spent dropping trailer & bobtailing to a day spa somewhere.

    I frequent many truckstops every week -

    and have never seen a swarm of Asian women....

    Most of the massage places I have seen in truckstops will not approach "you" - you have to ask for info etc etc.

    Both of the ones I have tried are right out in the open - and there was nothing "funny" about them...
