Massage was uncomfortable, unprofessional and gropy! – I received a gift certificate for a massage here and immediately felt uncomfortable with the unprofessional and inappropriate etiquette of the man who gave me my massage.
I also felt the masseur did not put forth any effort to cover me up, and I was completely shocked when he completely REMOVED the towel WITHOUT ASKING and spent an agonizing 10 minutes massaging my buttocks! I was frozen and uncomfortable and finally told him I was not okay with that. He responded, "Oh did I hurt you?" to which I said, "Sir, I don't want you to touch me there again." He did not touch me there again, HOWEVER he left the towel off!!! I was completely exposed and had to reach around AND PUT IT BACK MYSELF! Completely inappropriate and shady, I was in shock.
I have had many full-body massages in my life, by men and women, as well as brazilian waxes, and have NEVER before felt violated in any way. I even looked up masseuse ethics and rules, and it says you are NEVER to touch private areas (including the buttocks) unless you ASK PERMISSION. This was a very unfortunate experience, maybe this is an okay place for waxing (though I shall never return), but IT IS NOT FOR MASSAGES!
Bad Customer Service – I purchased a Lifebooker certificate for C-Wax over 2 weeks ago and I have been trying to call them to book an appt everyday, but no one ever answered the phone. They are crooks and I want my money back!!!!!! I have yet to get a service or my money back since the purchase over 2 weeks ago!
C wax not to the max – I took my mum there for a massage. I wish there was more information on the web about its appearance or else i would've gone elsewhere. It's pretty dumpy, you walk in and i was like "oh". The salon up front is unorganized and blah. I got a half off coupon from some site so i couldn't just turn around and leave. My mum said the massage was good though. But it's not a calm place at all. Go elsewhere for better impressions.
She is the best – To pay for the BEST BRAZILIAN in NYC u can't go anywhere else but C WAX. This means NO redness, NO bumps, NO ingrowns, & NO PAIN!!
CRISTINA is amazing. She shapes exactly how you want it, & whips you into shape in 15mins. I HIGHLY recmnd her ladies!!! She's a darling. The $65 is all for the skill and professionalism, these Brazilians know their craft.
Terrible Massage – I had a coupon from BuyWithMe for a deep tissue massage from C Wax and I left thinking they had no idea what they were doing. For the price I was willing to overlook the bare-bones facilities and not-soothing ambience but the massage was not firm enough and I kept having to ask to be covered better. The masseuse also used way too much oil which I could still smell even after showering. Maybe their bikini waxes are okay but I would not go for a massage.
Best Deep Tissue Massage – Had a deep tissue massage a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed Carlos' expert technique- strong and gentle at the same time. Will definitely be back during crazy busy season at work to alleviate the tension!
Carlos is wonderful, great waxing treatments – I found C Wax on Citysearch last week and scheduled an appointment. After being waxed and treated by Carlos, I must say that I was very happy. I will be back for sure.
Great job, great price ... painless – Valeria is fantastic! I've been a regular client for the last 18 months and feel really fortunate to have found her. She's extremely accommodating, quick, funny and absolutely the best at what she does. Her products are gentle yet very effective. I was nervous the first time I came in and Valeria immediately put me at ease and had me laughing in no time. I've recommended her to all my friends and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Make an appointment and see for yourself...it's so worth it!
Best waxing ever – Carlos makes the process comfortable and painless (as possible).
I've been coming to him for years, and I will continue to do so for a long time
