Colorado Woman Turned Down for Massage Because She’s Too Fat — Is It Fair? [VIDEO]
We’ve heard about weight restrictions for airline seats and some amusement park rides. But at a spa?Laura Smith didn’t get a massage, but she was still rubbed the wrong way.
The 31-year-old woman claims the National Healing Center, in Aurora, Colorado, refused to give her a massage last month because of her weight.
Here’s what the owner of the spa , Penny Wells, allegedly told Smith, “I’m really sorry, but you’re just too fat for our table. You’ll probably break [it] and have to pay for it.’”
Smith, who stands at six-foot-three and weighs 250 pounds, couldn’t believe what she heard. Smith was looking forward to the massage as a kind of reward after running a half-marathon the day before.
