A 250-pund Colorado woman was denied a massage because she is too ‘fat’.
Laura Smith, booked an appointment at the Natural Healing Center in Colo. for a post half-marathon massage but she claims when she got there the masseuse said she could not be served.
According to KDVR, the masseuse told her “I’m sorry but you’re too fat for our tables.You’re going to probably break a table and then you’d have to pay for it.”
Smith is 5’3 and weighs approximately 250-pounds; despite what the masseuse said, Smith says she’s received plenty of professional massages before and has never had a problem.
The owner claims she called Smith “large” not fat. She also said that previously a man who weighed 165 pounds once collapsed on one of the center’s tables and that’s why she declined Smith’s service.
