Wow! Outstanding experience! November 29, 2006 | 33 of 67 people found this review helpful
I came here last night and had the Godiva Chocoloate Body Treatment. I was very impressed with Ajune on many levels. Staff was very dedicated, personable, and "present" to my concerns and needs.. My therapist, Jordana definately had very "high touch" skills. If I had one word to describe the entire experience it would be "sensual" from the luxurious interiors, to the yummy smells, soothing jazz music during the treatments, adept bodywork with all the different lotions, scrubs etc that were slathered all over my weary body. I felt so at peace afterwards that I just sat in their candle-lit, tranquility space so I could soak in the blissful state that they had transported me to. I have visited many spas in the city and I would definately list Ajune as one of my favorites. Looking forward to coming back here again!I would visit this business again? Yes
Staff is tremendous here..... October 24, 2006 | 27 of 48 people found this review helpful
I visited her awhile ago and had an incredible facial and microdermabrasion. This place feels very cozy, like you are visiting someone's house, although not small and claustrophobic. It also has a hyperbaric chamber, which they use to treat all kind of chronic conditions....I felt so much more energized after I was in it. Staff was so nice and welcoming! I live in the city so this is very far for me to go to.I would visit this business again? Yes

Looking forward to my next visit...... April 16, 2007 | 3 of 15 people found this review helpful
I loved the yummy and relaxing Chai – Body Wrap I had here the other day, I felt like a cozy burrito when I was all wrapped up… very nice! The Vichy shower with 9 jets and changing mood lights was so luxurious and sensual that I stayed in the shower for 20 minutes.
As a frequent, spa – goer, I think it is the details and extra nurturing and attention from your staff which makes you stand out above all the other spas in the tri- state area. I feel like I am coming home to my doting Russian Grandmother whenever I visit! I loved how dreamy it felt in the tranquility rooms. The space truly feels like a day spa with all of the amenities ( steam, Vichy shower, space to chill, locker room etc) My eggplant sandwich for lunch was very taste also!
Also, as someone that has gotten a myriad of painful, aesthetic procedures, the Laser Hair Removal Procedure was the most comfortable one I have experienced. During most of the time, I hardly even felt anything was happening, which is in sharp contrast to other laser work I have had done where I am wincing in pain or feel tears welling back in my eyes.I would visit this business again? Yes
LOVED my massage here!!! September 26, 2007 | 7 of 9 people found this review helpful
As a frequent spa - goer in the tri - state area, I have gotten lots of treatments at various places. Lina was my massage therapist. I told them I was a difficult customer to please and that I had some neck pain that was killing me. Lina did such an incredible job at getting all the knots out, I wanted to fall asleep on their couch and take a napI was so relaxed afterwards.
I liked how there were chocolate cookies and they kept offering me herbal teas. It's in a very cute neighborhood in Brooklyn, can't remember the name now. Facility was very nice and clean.
They were renovating the steam and sauna area so looking forward to using that on my next visit.
Il live in Manhattan so my only complaint is that I wish they were closer so it would be easier for me to come backI would visit this business again? Yes
Got the Bliss Package November 15, 2006 | 18 of 39 people found this review helpful
Amita worked on me and it was a very subtle but profound experience. I had the Shirodhara and Abyhanga. There was a lot of oil on my head afterwards. It worked on a very different level, more on the subconscious and holistic level so for people that just want a deep tissue massage that works superficially other places would probably be better. Amita had me focus on my breath to integrate the bodywork on a deeper level. She also put me in a very unsual steam box, so that my body was steaming but my head could stay cool, I really enjoyed this part. I left feeling very light and floaty (and oily since she recommended to let the oils seep into me so they could continue to detox me.I would visit this business again? Yes
Thank You Dr. Lawton! January 17, 2007

Very Impressed March 15, 2007
I visited here the other day and was very impressed by how your privacy is maintained throughtout the medical consulations ( in the wiating areas) as well as in the spa cabanas outside. I got a tour and was very impressed with all the modern, sophistacted diagnotic equipment that they have. I like how you can just come here for the day for services or their programs and you don't have to stay overnight here. The staff was very gracious and friendly as well - thank you!I would visit this business again? Yes

Thanks Calvert and Team!I would visit this business again? Yes
Loved my facial.... October 24, 2006
I have visted lots of spas and was truly impressed by how luxurious the space is, not as clinical as other Med Spas I have visited. The staff goes out of there way to impress you and my esthetician had a great touch for the scalp, hand and facial massage which were a component of the facial. I loved how my complexion had evened out and how radiant I looked afterward. My only complaint is that I wish they were closer to me so I could come here more often. Thank You so much!!! Can't wait to visit the area again!I would visit this business again? Yes
had some treatments here . . . . March 1, 2006
I had some treatments here. Definately on the exotic side. I really loved the Odyssey and Shirodhara combo. Very balancing and relaxing. Be sure to take a yoga class as wel, even if you are new to yoga...very gentle and relaxing. They had free meditation as well that you can join in. Be sure to take advantage of doing steam , sauna, etc at La Costa. You can make a whole day out of 1 treatment to reallly get your money's worth.I would visit this business again? Yes
Pretty Spa! January 4, 2007
I came her unsure of how the treatment would be but everyone was so gracious and nurturing and I loved the facial!I would visit this business again? Yes

Had a great reflexology treatment here.... April 13, 2006 | 76 of 135 people found this review helpful
I just went here last night and had a great reflexology traetment with full massage. The therapist, Soria, was able to hone in on parts that were bothering me and I I was so relaxed and floaty feeling after, that I just stayed there and read magazines an hour after my treatment. The place is tiny and it doesn't really feel like a spa, more like a small wellness center, but I was more satisfied here with the treatment then at other full - service spas in the city and the staff was very gracious. I don't think the marble - quotient is what makes a great spa ( although it does look impressive) but ultimately it is how the people treat you when you are there.I would visit this business again? Yes

SpaJunkie August 16, 2006
I was taken aback on how committed and caring Dr. Shapiro and his staff were. This place feels more like a comfortable and cozy welllness center where you can just kick off your shoes and be at home. It doesn't have the pretense or pomp of many high-end luxury spas. They stayed open hours after their official closing time on a Satruday night to accommodate our schedules. Dr. Shapiro even did an "Iris" reading...never knew someone could tell so much about my health and well-being from looking at my eyes. I also had a body density reading, so I could see scientifically how fat I was and how to change my lifestyle and behavior to be at a more optimum level. I enjoyed my time in the infrared sauna with nice music and with the staff checking on us to make sure we didn't melt in there. Thank you so much Dr. Shapiro!I would visit this business again? Yes
Fabulous Experience here December 18, 2006 | 49 of 98 people found this review helpful
I came here yesterday and had an ayurvedic massage and a shirodhara ( oil on the head treatment) Nisha was one of the most giving and generous practioners that I have had a treatment with. It was so profoundly relaxing and soothing.There is nothing here in terms of amenities or atmosphere since it is in a very simple and small space but beautiful amenities has not always ensured a rewarding spa treatment in my experience. Nisha usually specializes in chronic conditions and diseases and the ayurvedic treatments are usually a component of that and I plan to go back to her to address some health concerns that I have. Thank you so much for such an powerful and uplifting treatment!I would visit this business again? Yes
Just had a massage here . . . March 1, 2006 | 28 of 55 people found this review helpful
It's a no frills place, but if you want a good massage to get the kinks out at a low price, then this is the place to come. The one thing I didn't like the 2 times I came here was when they put the hot towels on my back...bit too hot. Other than that it was great! Walked out with less knots.I would visit this business again? Yes
My favorite place in NY November 15, 2006 | 44 of 79 people found this review helpful
As a frequent spa -goer, I would have to say this is my favorite place in the city. I love the dramatic interiors, huge steam and sauna rooms, cascading waterfalls. Most days spas in this city are the size of a postage stamp and almost none have the extra amenities so usully I feel ripped off . This place is spacious and I love sitting by the waterfall and just lounging. The bodywork has been very consistent and I think the therapists here are definately above average in this city. Great space for large events or bridal showers!I would visit this business again? Yes

Had Permanent Eyeliner done..... November 27, 2006
I came here for my touch - up and was very impressed with this space. As a frequest spa - goer many med-spas can have a overly clinical feel to it. I loved the stunning waterfeature (about 6 feet tall) at the entrace to this place and there is a private tranquility space behind the waterfall, very impressive. I also loved the cozy chenille blankets on the treatment tables.
It was a little confusing to find this place since I am not from Orlando but the staff was quite helpful on the phone. I love the results of the permanent eyeliner, so nice to wake up and not have to worry about this extra step in the morning. Thank You!I would visit this business again? Yes
Just had a treatment here... April 14, 2006 | 13 of 24 people found this review helpful
I went here the other day and the staff was very gracious and nurturing. I had a mud wrap and felt so nice and cozy afterwards. I go to spas all the time and thought this was much better treatment, surroundings, results than at other places. Prices were very reasonable too.I would visit this business again? Yes
Had a great facial here on Madison location May 29, 2006
I actually went to the location on Madison and 51st and had a treatment with Jennifer. The atmosphere is modest but still elegant and has a serene waiting area. I've had a lot of facials in this city but Jennifer went above and beyond other aestheticians. I love how nice all the products smelled. I usually never buy product after a facial but bought all the basics and didn't feel pressured or oligagated to buy them like at other spas. I have become more sensitive to harsh chemicals and perfumes in many beauty products as I have gotten older so was really looking for something organic and holistic.
Jennifer massaged lavender lotion into my arms and feet.. very nurturing. She was very present during the treatment. It felt like a facial and a massage in one treatment. I wish they had steam and sauna here too!I would visit this business again? Yes
Worthwhile visit December 22, 2006
I came here and was very pleased with the customer service of the staff and results of the treatment and I plan to come back.I would visit this business again? Yes
Visited here the other day...... March 14, 2006
I went to this place to find out more about having some work done. They have some speciality aesthetic services that I have never heard of for problems that I didn't even know Medical Spas could solve. It's a fairly big facilit, but despite all the people there, they are very welocming and attentive.I would visit this business again? Yes
Mixed feelings about my experience April 3, 2006 | 17 of 39 people found this review helpful
I went here with some friends. The staff was extremely attentive and sweet, even if they only know 7 words of English, always asking us if we wanted lemon or cucumber water, even in the sauna. I absoluteyl loved my massage, Nana, my hard - working therapist, really got out some deep tension I had in my neck and shoulders. One of the best massages all year I've had and I've visited quite a few spas this year only to be dissapointed with the result. Afterwards the manager was rude and snarly to me and my friend since there was confusion about how much to charge us and more confusion about how to process SpaFinder Gift Certificates. Otherwise, we probably would have given higher reviews. Despite her attitude, I would still go back since a good therapist is hard to find, even with all the hundreds of spas in this city.I would visit this business again? Yes
Customer Satisfaction January 25, 2008 | 42 of 74 people found this review helpful
Hi L aura,
I have to mention that your front desk staff, specifically Akilah, was extremely kind . She not only remembered me as I walked in but made sure that she came to find me to say good night as she was leaving for the evening. People like that really help with any experience, good or bad!
I also want to mention that the technicians my sister and I had were wonderful. Facials are always a concern for fear that blemishes are always the end result. No need to worry about that with Magda and Andrea. Both are very knowledgeable and professional. Its because of them that we will be returning quite often for regular skin care.
Thank you again for your follow-up with me. Good luck to you and hopes for great success in 2008!

Just had laser hair removal here......... March 1, 2006
I have had laser hair removal before and it was extremely painful and it burned. I had a treatment here and they have a special laser that cools it down, so it is more comfortable than other places. The doctor is very thourough and spends a lot of time with you to make sure you are getting the exact results you want. The owner, Colleen, is pretty cool and they go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable. Very pretty spa..some nice touches that make it feel very elegant. Great location right scross from the Cheescake Factory.I would visit this business again? Yes
Very cozy and sweet place.... May 9, 2006
Lenuta is such a sweetie! This is a cozy and intimate place. I really loved the results I got from my combo massage...a very good overall massage and i loved how bright and shiny my face looked afterwards. This is a good place to go if you don't like the pomp and pretension of a big spa and salon.I would visit this business again? Yes
Loved my facial.... August 8, 2007 | 25 of 45 people found this review helpful
I frequently go to spas in New York and this spa is typical in terms of the decor, amount of space, etc. As with most places here in this city, there are no amenities such as steam and sauna. You go here for the services and not the environment.
I had a facial with Eugenia, who has been here 20 years. She was very pleasant and did some great upper body massage. I was so relaxed that I fell asleep during part of it. The facial was MUCH longer, 1.5 hours than a typical facial (even though the prices are a bargain for the results and the amount of time you get) They believe in giving the masque a longer time on the face so it really penetrates.
I have to say, that this was the most beautiful my skin has looked in a long time.... clear and radiant. I normally won't leave go outside without makeup but felt fine afterwards. Very convieniently located. I look forward to coming back.I would visit this business again? Yes
Great place to bring a group of gals! February 23, 2006 | 38 of 82 people found this review helpful
I came here with my Aunt and we had a very intimate and bonding experience. We had tea on gold plated china. I had a facial by the famous Ingrid. I loved how warm and cozy I was with special gloves on for the hand treatment. The staff was so gracious and I felt so comfortable there despite the East 57th address.I would visit this business again? Yes
Thank You December 28, 2007
As someone that gets frequent aesthetic procedures done, I have to say that I was impressed with the staff, services, faclities of this place. Everyone was nice and sweet when we came in and we did not have to wait at all. We were offered some interesting flavored sodas. i had some injections to fill in wrinkles and it was not as painful as another place I went in aonther city. The discomfort was minimal and I am so happy with my results the next day.
My mom had some laser work done to get rid of sun spots on her chest and she liked seeing a reduction in her spots after 1 treatment.I would visit this business again? Yes

Very romantic and tranquil.... July 3, 2006
I went here today with my sweetie and it exceeded our expectations in so many ways. We started off with an exquisite private suite with a hot tub and our own steam room while we sipped red wine they brought us. Then we had our massages in the couples room together. Afterwards we slept in the big cozy chairs while wrapped by the staff in plush blankets for a few hours. We didn't even have to lift a finger to get lunch, the staff brought us menus and brought us a yummy lunch while we lounged about. I really love their tranquility room - the cozy chairs, the low lighting, the soft music etc.. I am a regular spa - goer and think this was one of the better spas I have been to in the last year, better than many in Manhattan. We wanted to move in it was so blissful and nurturing! Thank you for such a memorable day!I would visit this business again? Yes

I drive from Weston now to receive services..... December 8, 2006 | 27 of 56 people found this review helpful
Hi, my name is Lori Schutz and I want to share my opinion about JOHN GRIGG. I came to him at another salon and was mesmerized by his skill with hair!
But more than that he is thoughtful, professional, positive and fun! I moved to Westport Connecticut last year and continued to fly to Florida in order to have him do my hair every three months. I tell friends and family that john is a magician when you leave his chair you feel beautiful and its more than the cut and color it is the energy that he gives off when he is caring for you!
My husband and I were at the opening of Orion and we were so impressed! You feel at peace in the warm and rich colors, we cant wait to try out the pedicure chairs. The food was delightful with wines that complimented the atmosphere and champagne flowed. The people were a wonderful blend of old and new. You can see that John and Martin have brought there imagination and integrity with each aspect of the salon. I drive from Weston now to receive services and I can tell you the fully reclining massaging wash station for your hair are worth the trip alone!I would visit this business again? Yes

I went to this spa and salon that is located in midtown and I had some major pain and tightness in my shoulders and neck. I couldn't believe how much better I felt afterwards. The staff is very gracious and warm, even offering me a glass of white wine. The decor is contemporary and feels sort of like a cozy french resort.I would visit this business again? Yes

Had a series of spot treatments here.... April 16, 2007
"I am a blonde haired, blue eyed, freckled and fair skinned. I love the sun and the beach which usually produces sunburn and more freckles. For years, I abused my skin realizing too late what the consequences were. But using sunscreen and avoiding the sun has not erased the damage. The cute freckles from my childhood have turned into large ugly sunspots (I prefer not to call them age spots), especially on my hands and face.
After a series of IPL treatments the difference is dramatic. The dark spots are mostly gone and my skin is smoother. Friends have asked me if I am using a new makeup (I never wear foundation), or if I have done something "different". The most dramatic difference is my hands.
My skin was spotted, wrinkled, thin, and dry. Now the spots are gone and my skin is soft and wrinkle free. The whole texture of my skin has changed. My hands and face definitely look younger.I would visit this business again? Yes
Profoundly Healing Experience... February 12, 2007 | 43 of 86 people found this review helpful
I woulnd't classify this place as a Day Spa, but more of a holistic treatment center. I've been to many spas in this city and must say that I usually leave feeling that the therapist wasn't very "present" and that there was nothing special or unique about the service ( after I have already shelled our $150 or so, I usually learned this).
At Sphatika, I felt a deep sense of peace and tranquility and my therapist was truly present. There were a range of modalities that wree used to get me to this deep level, infra red sauna, healing crystals placed all over my body, soft tibetan bowls that were "sung" that broke up negative patterns in my body. I loved how you could decompress in the tranquility room, which felt so angelic.
I do wish I would have been invited to stay longer in the infra red sauna, but other than that, I have no complaints. Thank You for a very healing experience!I would visit this business again? Yes

I visited here the other day when I was in town on business and really loved how gracious the staff was. They served me yummy teas and the environment felt very open and luxurious. I then went into my treatment room and they did eyebrow threading, it was much more comfortable than waxing and really loved the result.
Thank you Pareen and everyone for a great treatment, I love how my eyebrows look now.I would visit this business again? Yes

Just got a Laser Procedure done here October 19, 2006
I wanted to even out my skin tone, so I decided to try out one of these high - tech laser procedures. The atmosphere is very upscale yet casual and location is right near Grand Central so it is very convenient. The actual procedure does not exactly feel good but it is tolerable. After all the laser zapping, the esthetician calmed my skin ( and pysche) down with a soothing facial... even massaged my arms, hands and feet, a very nice unexpected touch. I bought a whole series of 6 so I can get my results, but I must say I am very satisfied with the first treatment. I like how they call the next day to make sure you are doing the aftercare procedures. Desipite how busy they are, everything ran pretty smoothly and organized.I would visit this business again? Yes
Very impressed with level of Doctor Involvement October 3, 2006 | 125 of 276 people found this review helpful
I went to this cozy, boutique Medical Spa on the Upper East Side and was very impressed with how much time I got to spend consulting with Dr Greenberg. Often at Medical Spas, you don't get any time with a Doctor and sometimes it is an RN or esthetician that performs the procedures and injectibles. I felt very reassured that I was getting the best results since he took time to explain the technology to me and he performed the Laser Hair Removal as well. It wasn't too painful either. I like the modern and sophisticated decor. The office staff is very knowledgeable about all their offereings as well. They make the experience fun as well. I'm looking for an excuse to come back here. Don't be putt off by the front entrance, which could be spruced up a bit.I would visit this business again? Yes
Just had a facial here . . . March 7, 2006 | 1 of 2 people found this review helpful
I just had a facial here the other day. Their esthetician and gave me advice about how to take care of my skin that no esthetician had ever given me. As a result my skin cleared up in a few days. It's in a really cool and acessbile part of Chelsea and I love the Mexican restaurant (called Salsa, I think) that is right nearby. They are also pros with eyelash extensions and I'm coming in next week to get permanent lipstick so I don't have to apply lipliner every hour. Staff is very attentive, gracious and welcoming.I would visit this business again? Yes
I have my face back February 9, 2007
I had been breaking out pretty badly lately and trying all kinds of different things and wasting a bunch of cash in the process. I came here, pretty doubtful that anything would help. I started on a skin care regimen and had a few treatments and now am all cleared up. It';s a very nice space and Kaite and everyone else in the office made me feel very comfortable and they were very sweet to me.I would visit this business again? Yes
Thank you Anna for clearing up face scarring. February 22, 2007 | 76 of 145 people found this review helpful
A year ago I spent (too much) time in India and came home with 12 acne lesions/scars on my face. Through dermotological intervention and meds the acne is under control, but the scars remained. After 3 sessions with Anna G., she has all but eradicated the scars through deep microdermabrasion, a vitapeel and topicals used between sessions. I was going to a dermotologist cited in NY Magazine's Top Doctor’s issue for a year before and had not had this result!

As someone that goes to spas a lot I was not expecting anything out of the ordinary when I came here. I was so in awe of how nurturing and profound the massage was and how caring Aretha was. This is truly an experience for someone that wants healing on many levels.
If you are looking to go to a place that has tons of spa amenities like steam and sauna you should probably choose another place though.
I feel lucky to have found such a wonderful healer like Aretha!I would visit this business again? Yes
Review March 15, 2007
I have gotten a full body massage and numerous facials from the Spa at Bedminster. I am incredibly satisfied with the staff, the atmosphere, and the price. Sandy was very sincere and the secretary was more than willing to make me comfortable. My appointment started on time and felt great. I definitely recommend this spa to everyone!I would visit this business again? Yes

I had reflexology here with Laure, who is a master with your toes. I started to tell her where my problem areas where and she said," No, the feet will tell me" She was able to pinpoint pain in my shoulders, neck, headaches etc.I had a treatment in an interesting machine designed by NASA scientists which had a combination of infra-red, sauna and steam....very relaxing and I love their use of color therapy which creates an exotic ambience! They were so gracious and welcoming and the rooms feel very private..even for manicures and pedicures.I would visit this business again? Yes

This is a small, intimate, private place. Tony is the Esthetician and he has been doing this for a long time. He is very thorough and I got results with microdermabrasion that I didn't know I could get.....got rid of acne scars and some brownish spots on my face. My face is all glowing and shiny now! He is very personable and makes the experience fun as well. It's a stone's throw from the beach as well.I would visit this business again? Yes

I came here with my boyfriend and we had such an incredible experience. It's like walking into a little Italan Spa. Very Old- world feel to it! We were able to have a glass of wine, snuggle in chenile robes, go into the Co-ed steam room together.

Came here and was pleasantly surprised April 20, 2007
A friend of mine had been telling me about these wraps, where they wrap a bunch of stuff around you and you end up losing some inches so out of desperation came here. Staff was very sweet and I felt pretty comfortable with the whole way they did everything. Really liked the results of losing some stubborn flabby parts.... thanks guys!I would visit this business again? Yes
Great deal I got on a package here! May 5, 2006 | 30 of 65 people found this review helpful
I went here last night and was very impressed with how much value I got for the price. The staff is very gracious and attentive. I had a swedish massage followed by a body scrub. ( One of the better massages I have had in this city.) Then I had an aromatherapy bath in which rose petals and lemon slices were added. While I was in the bath, the therapist continued to massage my neck and shoulders. Quite an indulgent and pampering scene. I felt like a Diva.
Aftewards I sat in the massage chairs for awhile. I never felt rushed (like they do at other spas) and was able to really luxuriate in the experience. It has a modest and humble decor, with low lighting and soft music that creates a soothing and relaxing atmosphere in an intimate space. Don't be put off by the cheerless entrace to the place.
The Ritz Carlton it is not, but for those that are on a budget this would be one of the top places I would recommend in this city for a pampering experience.I would visit this business again? Yes
Great Value! December 12, 2006
I went here and got a great massage, rose petal bath with lemon oil and they were massaging me while I was in the bath, Very luxurious and for about 1/2 the cost of most other places in the city. Not many amenities here but one of the best inthe city in the "bargain spa" category.I would visit this business again? Yes
Exotic and Stunning Place.... December 4, 2006
I stopped by here and was amazed at how authentically Thai this place was. It really transports you to another place and time. There is a great amount of attention to detail here, even the trash cans are beautiful. There are lots of sensual, golden fabrics which lend an air of sensuality and luxury. I love how the staff is dressed in their traditional Thai garb. There is also an authentic Thai Pavillon in the center for Thai Massage. . A great place for small groups since there is plenty or "chill" space where you can sit together as a group or lounge on their big comfy chairs in the back while getting a foot massage or just read a magazine and drink their yummy Ginger Tea. Service was very gracious and attentive. A little pricey, but worth it, if you want something really memorable.I would visit this business again? Yes

I went to visit the Institute and was very impressed with the discreet and intimate nature of this place. I didn't have to worry about other people seeing me in the waiting room. It has a pretty exotic, yet luxurious decor. It's on a lovely street in West Palm Beach in a stunning building. Great place to get some services done and have a nice stroll afterwards. Everyone there is so gracious and fun! Thank you Donna and everyone!I would visit this business again? Yes
Very spacious place and great staff.... January 18, 2007

Exceeded My Expectations..... November 19, 2007
"As someone that regularly visits spas in the tri - state area and when I travel around the country, I frequently encounter less than stellar therapists and services. I have to say that my experience at Turquoise this Saturday was beyond what I would have expected.
Deanne was my massage therapist and the knots in body were all unkinked by the time the session was over.
Caroline was my aesthetician and this was one of the most pampering and nurturing facials that I have ever had.. I loved how she took a lot of time to rub my hands, feet, arms, neck etc...
I thought the front area where you checked in was a bit small, but the nice open relaxation areas in the back more than made up for this.
I also loved how there were toiletries in the bathroom so I could freshen up after I was all mussed up after the treatments since they had toothbrushes, combs and a hairdryer in the bathroom
Thank you everyone and I look forward to my next visit!"I would visit this business again? Yes
