i just want to know how much the spa makes not the restaurant or salon.

please help and do research



That seems pretty high for me, but then again I am in the sticks in Michigan. There is a growing trend for more people to do at home spa for themselves, and that is what type of stuff I am selling on my website.

You will have to look at what the going rates are in your area, Tampa is a large city with a growing population. Look into age defying treatments because of all of the sunburns.

I purchased a massage table and there is a strong chemical smell (e.g. smells like gas). What is it?

I recently purchased a massage table. The massage table came in a carrying bag. There is a strong chemical smells a little like gas..anyone know what this smell is?

Most likely it is the rubber feet or other rubber part. I bought a keyboard stand from Guitar Center and had a similar strong smell of gasoline. It was the rubber feet. Very sickening. I thought I stepped in gas or something. I returned it and bought an "Ultimate".

If you choose a better quality table this would not happen. Oakworks and Earthlite are two of the best.

They are more expensive but you definately get what you pay for. I bought an Oakworks when I started school. The whole package cost about $800, which included a deluxe case, deluxe face cradle, bolster, fleece and wheeled stool. About 3 years later the table had a small tear in the upholstery near the closure which came from a minor design flaw. I sent it back and they replaced the entire table free of charge giving me the updated and improved version (Nova) they even replaced the bolster and face cradle because the material was the older version. The new material is eco-friendly. They also paid the shipping both ways.

Before this table I bought the $99 special at Sam’s Club. Most of my clients had an allergic reaction to the materials and the table was a lot heavier and less durable.

There are other reputable companies that make good tables but Oakworks and Earthlite are the only ones I’ve bought and liked. My wife and I have no complaints about either brand with Oakworks being the ultimate preference.

My wife is also a therapist but she is a lot smaller than me and the Earthlite is definately lighter but Oakworks also makes lightweight tables.

Who makes the best therapeutic massage chair?

For massage therapists.
This would be the most useful kind of chair – kind of a chair equivalent to the Honda accord.

Oakworks, hands down. The Oakworks Portal Pro 3 is the only chair I will use or recommend anymore. The design is just genius; it’s very lightweight, and you can adjust for not only the client’s size, but your own height as well. With a sternum pad, it’s even comfortable for very pregnant women because of the shape of the frame.

How I Served My Community
Yo, what up? It’s me Spencer! So I’m writing to you from Officer Carl’s laptop. Do you remember Officer Carl? He was the cop that almost arrested me last year cuz the sign I made for iCarly went kooky and ended up saying "Pee on Carl" — and cuz it caused like 50 car crashes. I hope Officer Carl doesn’t mind that I borrowed his laptop. He’s in the bathroom (He’s been in there for a LONG time). Anyway, I’m in his office cuz I had to do 8 hours of community service. Why, you ask?? Because I REFUSE to pay my bicycle parking ticket!!! I got the ticket because I parked in a handicap spot. I tried to explain to Officer Carl that the definition of handicap means: A physical or mental problem that makes life more difficult. Um, excuse me, I had a MAJOR butt cramp that was making my life very difficult and I didn’t want to walk all the way across the street because the vibrations from walking caused my butt to throb and quiver oddly. Who wants THAT?!? Uh, NO ONE. Okay, so I finally finished my community service (I’m about to report all of it to Officer Carl). Here’s all the stuff I did to serve my community.

Hour One:
I picked up trash on the side of the road. THIS WAS FUN. I got a lotta stuff for my sculptures. It was really hard carrying it home 3 miles though. Officer Carl wouldn’t let me in his police car with the monster-truck wheel that I found. P.S. I also found a toothbrush with blood on it (someone needs to floss more!).

Hour Two:
I had to clean the ladies’ bathroom at a rest stop. Umm…no one told the ladies that I was going in there. So one lady (a really big one) knocked me down and then another smaller lady (I think her name was Lucille) beat me with her umbrella while the bigger, fleshier lady held me down on the ladies’ room floor. Man, ladies can be mean when they are in the restroom!

Hour Three:
I had to hold a "Leeches Anonymous" support group in my house. It’s for people who are addicted to putting leeches all over their body — you know those blood-sucking worms. Yuck! Well, anyway, I think some of the leeches got lost and now Carly and I have to sleep with the lights on!

Hour Four:
This hour was a full 60 minutes of Random Acts of Kindness. The first thing I did was stand on the side of the road and compliment people. There was one guy who had a very shiny head. I told him his head was nice and shiny. He responded by punching me in the neck. So I yanked his pants down and ran away.

Hour Five:
I had to give Officer Carl a foot massage — I DO NOT understand how this helps the community!

Hour Six:
I sniffed things for people who don’t have the ability to smell (they’re called "nasally challenged"). It wasn’t so bad until I smelled this woman’s son who happened to be a hobo. Some hobos may smell wonderful — this one did not. I think it’s because he keeps his pockets full of baked beans. I don’t understand hobos. But man, they sure love baked beans!

Hour Seven:
I had to teach old people how to use the Internet. I taught them NEVER to go to and made all their homepages This was cool except now Carly, Sam, and Freddie get lots of videos from the nursing home like wheelchair races, denture tricks, and tips for "How to Cheat at Bingo."

Hour Eight:
Officer Carl made me walk around town wearing a giant sign that read: "Pee on Spencer." Lucky for me, most people just gave me weird looks. But this one huge dog (named "Rex") took the sign’s advice. Now I need a new left shoe. Thanks a lot, Rex. That dog must do nothing but drink water all day long!

LOL that was so funny. my favorites were hour 8 and hour 2.
