I've been to Massage Envy a couple of times, but the ones here didn't request a credit card, nor did they pressure me into any kind of membership. They pointed out the brochures "in case I was interested" but that was it. I had two different massage therapists, one male and one female. I really liked the female; it was just kind of weird to me to have a male massage therapist, and he liked to talk when I just wanted to lay there and get rubbed.
But the experiences overall were good, in my opinion.
