Hidden away in Mission hills- truly a gem!! April 27, 2006 | 21 of 44 people found this review helpful
It was hard to find parking, and that turned me off, but as soon as I step foot into the spa, I knew I was as close to heaven as I was getting on earth. Great atmosphere, music, smells, all wonderful! I had a Swedish massage, which was great. The aromatherapy oils were expertly blended and the paraffin dip was just what I needed on my hands and feet. My facial was expertly executed! She addressed all my concerns, analyzed my skin, and prescribed products that would help my skin issues. She had the perfect touch! I will be back again!!I would visit this business again? Yes

Last night after work I went to Dr. Z's Chiropractic Spa for a massage. I booked a 1 hour massage for 5:15pm. I arrived about 5 minutes early (traffic was bad). Overall impression: Not favorable. Their retail area had some MLM juice/protein/vitamin hoo ha, Mary Kay and a brand of hair care stuff you could get at Walmart. They had no skin care to support their esthetics practice (the menu looked good, like they used dermalogica. I really needed to refill my cleasner and I was hoping they had) and no retail to support their massage or chiropractic services (not even lumbar pillows- which I need!!)
The massage therapist seemed really rushed. We started at 5:17 (I checked the room out for the clock). She asked if I had any areas of concern, and I told her that I had slept funny the past couple of nights so my right clavicle area hurt when I turned my head a certain way, and my traps were achy. And if she could avoid my sacral area, that?d be super. She was quiet for a minute and then cautiously asked how I knew those terms. I told her I work in the healthcare industry.
We ascertained that I wanted light to medium pressure and she dug in. Seriously there were a couple times when I almost jumped of the table. She slacked on my legs, expect the lateral (outside) edge of my shin, which on about 85% of the population is a very delicate spot. Youch. The arm massage consisted of her mostly doing a pinch like move on the fleshy (read fat) part of my arm. The hand massage- she pulled on my fingers. That was it. My 1 hour massage lasted 45 minutes.
The receptionist was clueless. I wasn't asked to rebook. I wasn't thanked, and as I was paying the MT put on her coat and went outside to leave for the day.I would visit this business again? No
