Had a great afternoon with some long overdue body maintenance. Back wax / manicure, topped off with a massage to make my trip to Channings very pleasureable. Would recommend to all.

Go somewhere else! These people were extremely rude on the phone and the receptionist hung up on me mid-sentence. I will definitely never go here and will make it my mission so that no one else makes the same mistake.
