    My ex and several female friends of mine seemed to like Studio 7 up in North Ames (next to The Cafe).

    I've got my wife gift certificates for this place several times.

    Studio7 Salon and Spa
    This one just opened by The Cafe, some eyecandy on the website, must be decent.

    Resident lady fanatic weighing in:

    There's a lady near Main St. who is phenomenal. She's probably in her 40s. I got a 90 minute massage from her and have never felt so good in my life. I think the place was called Avenues for Health.

    How would you describe her massage style? The more firm/deep, the better (at least that is what my wife prefers - & no jimlad)

    I think these folks used to be a sponsor. I have given my wife gift cards from them and she liked it. And the women there are super nice. And hot.

    I can second this sentiment. On all accounts

    The massage I got from Vickie occurred about 5 years ago, but I do recall that it was very firm/deep. I also like that style.

    Re: Spa in Ames

    You should just get her one is Des Moines! I have been to both Salon W and Sahars. From experience I have gotten massages in both Ames in Des Moines and found the Ames ones to not be as good of quality for the price. Des Moines can be more expensive but worth it! :)

    How hard of a massage does she like? I like deep tissue, hard massages, so the one I got at Ville Day Spa was way too weak. I prefer the gentleman at the Racquet & Fitness Center.
