From Ruby:
Have you wanted to splurge on a luxurious massage but just haven’t because it felt like 60 minutes just wasn’t enough time? Then, book now because a 90 minute massage is only $69 (Swedish full body). That’s only $9 more than a one hour massage, and it will leave you twice as relaxed. This special is not available with any other offers or discounts and expires 4-10-11. Please add $10 for prenatal massage, and $10 for hot stones. Book online at absolutelyflawlesspdx.com or call 503-619-6415.”
