Holy massage, Batman! I came in today to get the first massage in years and years and years, well you get it. My husband got a Groupon and thought I would enjoy it. I was honestly nervous to go and it took me months to get it together and accept that a stranger would be touching my body. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person out there that would see going to a massage as an accomplishment, but it is what it is and I am who I am. I was glad there was soft music playing when I walked in. It was comforting. I was greeted and received by my masseuse, Terri, promptly. I felt at ease with her quickly as we discussed what was going to happen and what kind of massage I wanted. She was very accommodating and personable. The massage I picked was a medium pressure full body (I chose the back side of my body only) massage. The pressure applied was good. If I would have gotten the heavy pressure or deep tissue, I'm afraid it would have been too painful to enjoy. I'm not used to massages, so if you like deep tissue, I'm sure you would enjoy Terri. She has very strong hands and knows all the spots to hit. I'm pretty sure the regular price is 45.00 for a full hour. Call to make sure our check Groupon. They also have half hour appointments available. I'm definitely going to try and come at least once a month. It was that good. When I got up, I was dizzy and feeling a little funny. I kinda felt like I've had a couple adult beverages. Apparently that's a good thing. Elite Yelper
If you're ever in Oklahoma and need a chiropractor, Dr. Tripp is your guy. He's used to working with people who are in town for events at the university or visiting Tinker AFB, so a same day appointment was easy to come by (a huge plus when you're in pain). I'm quite picky about doctors, and tend to research/plan in advance who I see. Of course I was hesitant to see anyone when I pinched a nerve in my neck while traveling and only have time for a quick Yelp and google search. Dr. Tripp seemed like the best option among the limited selection of chiropractors in the area. He's on the Board, so that was sort of an instant credibility bump in my opinion. When I called to make an appointment the office was very nice, and even though it was pretty short notice, seemed to really want to fit me in. I came in for my appointment, filled out minimal paperwork, and was taken in to see Dr. Tripp. We talked about what brought me in and then he got to work with an exam and adjustment. Dr. Tripp was very pleasant, not just in the professional-friendly sort of way, and actually enjoys chatting with you. Also - if you're into sports Dr. Tripp knows a ton about all kinds of sports-related people and things. I know nothing about sports, but definitely appreciate his experience treating athletes and people with more intricate/significant injuries (as opposed to someone who injured themselves while blow-drying their hair a little too intensely). All in all I was in and out in under an hour and felt better by the time I left. Dr. Tripp even gave me some stretches to do on my own, which have worked great.
I discovered Tripp Chiropractic on Groupon. I paid $29 for a 60 minute Swedish massage. It was easy to call and book my appointment; and they were great about me rescheduling when I came down with an illness! Kudos for that. I arrived about 20 minutes early. The location is easy to find - right off Robinson in Norman. I was greeted and instructed to fill out a one page form getting basic identifying information as well as questions about meds, history of injuries, any massage restrictions, etc. I wasn't taken back until about 20 minute past my appointment. I think the office front staff could have let me know they were running behind, but the massage therapist was kind and apologetic about the wait. My massage therapist was Nicholas. He was great! Asked a few questions and got right to it. He was very thorough and let me know what areas were tense and needed extra attention. Very professional. I've made a new patient appointment, so I plan to be a regular :-)
