Well done massage. I highly recommend.

Best brow wax EVER!
I can honestly say Tanya gave me the best brow wax I've ever had. She was sweet, fast and accurate!

Great new place!
I just moved to the area and my skin wasn't reacting well to the new climate. I needed a esthetician that could fix my sensitive skin and help me with my acne. When I called Metamorphosis to make and appointment, Steven, the front desk person was so kind and helped me make an appointment for right away. Kira my esthetician was great and the facial was relaxing and very effective. There was no sales pressure and she made me feel beautiful. My skin felt amazing and its still glowing three days later! I've never had a better spa experience.

Facial at Metamorphosis Day Spa
I have been going to Kira for more than 4 years to get my facial/extraction done. She is the only person I trust my face. I would highly recommend her. You are in a good hands with her.

Great Massage
My neck and shoulders were killing me from bad night sleep. I woke up this morning unable to move my head or neck much at all and called up the spa in desperation for last minute appointment. My body immediately relaxed during and after the massage with Karil and through the day I felt the tension releasing and my muscles softening. Now only a few hours later I feel like I never had a problem to begin with. This was an excellent experience and I look forward to going back.

UNCOMFORTABLE SPA with poor management
I can only warn you to AVOID THIS "SPA" at all costs. My good friend gifted me a spa package based on what he read from Google reviews. Sadly, my whole experience was UN-RELAXING and UNPLEASANT. First of all, the staff wasn't friendly or professional. I had scheduled my appointment, and when I arrived the staff didn't know what type of treatments I was receiving based on my packaged gift. I had to explain it to them. I had a body scrub, a massage and a facial, all of which were UNCOMFORTABLE and MESSY. The staff didn't communicate well and was very aggressive and harsh during all the treatments. The whole time I was so uneasy, I couldn't wait for the treatments to be over. To top off a DISAPPOINTING experience, I left the building to look in the mirror and find the staff didn't clean all the facial cleanser off my face. My friend, who gifted me the spa package was so upset at my experience, he called the spa to speak with the owner and discuss a form of reimbursement. After multiple calls, we were never able to get through to the owner. The staff always claimed she wasn't in the spa, but they did get a hold of her to confirm that they can not refund us in any way. You've been warned.

I love this Spa!
Metamorphosis Day Spa is the best spa in NYC! I've been going there for years! I've had their body treatments, facials, and massages. The services they offer are tremendous, but it's the expertise of their staff who perform these services that make this spa number one in my book! The best facials and massages I have ever gotten are at this place! Oh, and the ambiance - so welcoming, so tranquil, so relaxing, so laid back. Your mind, body and spirit will be transformed!

I had been going to Metamorphosis since 2006 and usually had decent service. I called up recently to ask for an appt when I saw a special with a new facial (90min). I was given an appointment that night so I rushed over. I was given another cheaper facial that was only 60 min...They acted like they confused the names but when I asked at beginning what was the difference, Marcy could've confirmed what she thought I ordered (instead she dodged question). Owner came out as I got angry saying I had been cheated. Offered me a gift certificate, which later find out is for the cheaper short facial (not the special one that was longer and had other features and add-ons included) which is why I went to the spa that night to get. I wrote a similar review on a NYC page and they deleted it -chicken The manager didn't return my call. I've already stopped two friends from going. You don't rip off customers and you don't make customers feel like they were cheated, especially regular customers. And, frankly when I look back, Marcy only went thru the motions of this facial, nothing special, so I'd avoid going to her. I also broke out the day after. Not going back. They lost a regular customer with this episode.

Exfoliating Facial
My skin was super dry from having gone on a vacation where I was in the sun and surf all day for a week. Not to mention all that sunscreen I slathered onto my face! So I went to Metamorphosis and got an exfoliating facial, just what my face desperately needed! My skin felt instantly fresher when I left, like there was a glow to it! The technician also advised me on some good moisturizers with spf.

Of all the spas I've tried, the best so far
The first time I went to metamorphosis spa, I received a gift certificate from a friend for the swedish massage. I had Liz as my masseuse and she was excellent. Knew what she was doing and where to massage me. Told me afterwards that i was a bit more tense and muscular on the left side (which is true since I am a left handed tennis player and I always carry bags on the left). I have tried other spas and I believe this spa is overall is the best bet for the price. I liked them so much that I booked a couples massage for my boyfriends 35th birthday. They were (like before) veyr easy to book with. The staff is amazing. Very nice and accomodating. I asked for Liz again and my bf had Jess as his masseuse. He generally doesnt like massages but he definitely enjoyed his. Thanks again, I (and the bf) will be back soon :)

Poor Customer Service
I purchased a gift certificate to this spa. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I was unable to use it before the expiration date. I called 2 weeks in advance to discuss this with the staff. They told me they were unable to make an exception and I had no other choice but to let it expire without use. I asked only for a one week extension. The certificate clearly states Expriation is the responsibility of the "Merchant". Their unwillingness to work with a customer earned this poor review.

Hot Stone Massage
I have gone to this spa for hot stone massages for the last 3 years. I always walk away very relaxed and with a lot less knots than when I walked in. That last two massages were with Elizabeth and she is amazing! She did a quick assessment of my problem areas and focused on those areas. She also asked questions during the session to make sure I was ok with the heat/pressure. At the end of the massage she gave me a lot of useful everyday tips too. I will go back and request Elizabeth for my next massage again. I highly recommend her and their hot stone massage for a very relaxing experience!!

Metamorphosis Spa
I've had massages and facials here and both services have been great. It's a small intimate spa, and very peaceful. The facial hurt (I was going through a major breakout) but the esthetician was trying to be as gentle as possible, explaining the steps/scrubs/masks she was using. I really like this place.
May 26, 2011
Peaceful and Relaxing facial/Micoderm.
I would come back again, I enjoyed the facial and I feel their expertise and knowledge is something worth visiting. The acne and blemishes cleared up considerably.
March 31, 2011
best for peace
had a good massage and loved the atmosphere

Microderm Facial is the Best!
I have been to this spa many times for facials and I have always had a great experience. I have tried a few different types and loved them all. The microderm facial is my favorite, as it really has lasting results. I recommend making an appointment with Kira for the Microdermabrasion Facial. You won't be disappointed.

Microdermbrasion treatment review
It has made a big difference with the blemishes and the scars. love the ambience here. very friendly staff, looking forward to try their other packages.
January 3, 2011
My first visit to this Spa and it was awesome from the minute I walked in. From the staff to my massage was awesome and refreshing. I have been to other Spas and the massages were done half way and nothing like the massage person she really worked my areas I told her to work on more and it was so out of this world. My facial (clean as whistle) was great. Walked in with a face of needed work and left the Spa looking awesome and with a Glow. I am already planning my other appointment to go in with my boyfriend this time. I will recommend everyone to at least try it once. Beautiful place and environment and the staff excellent.

Relaxing and Invigorating Facial
I have been to Metamorphosis Day Spa several times, During my last visit, I got the signature facial and it was a very relaxing hour, great head and neck massage along with the facial, great scrubs and lotions used there, and I left feeling re-energized! The atmosphere when you walk in is very nice as well.
November 28, 2010
Great Waxing
I'd highly recommend going to Marcy for waxing. I go every month. The service is great and everyone is very friendly.
November 28, 2010
cleo's the best
i went here for a facial and a stone massage. cleo was the one who did my facial and it was the best Ive ever had. she's very into detail and knows a lot of stuff about skin care. she also recommended some do it at home ideas that are really helpful. i will definitely go back.
November 23, 2010
amazing experience
I love the microdermabrasion treatment. it is by far the best retreatment i had
November 21, 2010
amazingly peaceful
I have been going to this spa for over seven years, and each time, I am always impressed by the staff and the peaceful atmosphere. I know that I can always count on the best service each and every time. I reccomend the hot stone massage and clean as a whistle facial.
November 9, 2010
My job sent me to this spa for a day of rest. I did the Sampler Package where you receive a 25-minute swedish massage, mini facial, "Playing Footsie" foot massage and "Head Trip" Scalp massage. Except for the "Playing Footsie" massage everything was great. I would have rather have gottem more of the swedish massage. I felt like I got a better foot massage when getting a pedicure.However I would go back to this spa and have even told people about it. The service was excellent and I even bought some of their products.

Squeaky Clean Facial
Great facial! Relaxing room, service and atmosphere better than most. Not pushy and very professional. I will be going back!
October 28, 2010
Best spa in NYC
I've visited many spas in NYC and have found Metamorphosis to be the best. It's small but atmosphere is so relaxing and calming. Everyone from the receptionist to the cleaning staff is pleasant and makes you feel comfortable. I fall asleep everytime I go and feel so relaxed when I leave. I can't say that about any other spa I've visited in NY. Try them. I know you'll agree with me.
October 11, 2010
Great experience
I had a facial and a massage this weekend at Metamorphosis and had an excellent experience. Although the spa is small, the services were excellent and the facilities were very clean. Ambience was great! If you are looking for a large spa where you get all the additional pampering, this is not the place. But the staff are very friendly, do a great job, and for the price - it's perfect. I would defiinitely return and I even might do so in the next week or so!
September 14, 2010
Great Experience
I always get my facials and massages at Metamorphosis Day Spa and its a pleasure each and everytime. I have tried several other spas throughout the city and keep coming back to Metamorphosis, because no other has compared!!!
August 13, 2010
Very Disappoiting Experience
My husband booked this spa based on the reviews of previous members and boy were we shocked when we arrived. This is NOT a spa, more like a converted 2 bedroom in mid-town Manhattan. There is no locker room to change, no showers/steam room, no towels, and no robes/slippers. The waiting room has old furniture and self service tea which you have to plug in the kettle to make yourself a cup and water from a plastic pitcher with paper cups. My husband's massage was less then average and my facial was lack luster. This was not worth the money that we paid and we felt so mislead by the website and reviews.
August 13, 2010
Really great experience
The staff were very polite and very experienced. I have been to this spa 3 times all ready and all have been "The clean as a whistle facial" If you are looking for a spa in New york to go to Try this sap its awesome. The only negative thing i can say abut this sap is the price of the products for those of you who plan to but them, they are pricy.
August 3, 2010
Great Scrub & Facial!
I've been to Metamorphisis Day Spa several times this year already. This time I took advantage of the "Early Bird Special" - I got a free "Sweet Escape" body scrub when I booked my facial. Both services were great. It was the first time I got a scrub and it was pretty nice - my skin was left with a nice glow and very smooth! Afterwards I had my facial, which as always, was amazing! =D Kira is just fantastic and so professional. Will definitely return!
July 6, 2010
Great massage!
I had a massage at Metamorphosis Day spa and it was excellent. The massage therapist was experienced and professional. The environment is clean and relaxing. I highly recommend this spa.

Spa Review
My Euorpean facial was wonderful and several different treatments were used which I had never experienced before (a brush and a white electronic instrument). My only complaint would be that my warming gloves did not work properly and the room I was in was extremely loud and not relaxing (I could hear cars honking and sirens). The treatment itself was good - I usually go to Mario Badescu but I feel that Metamorphosis was worth another shot.
June 28, 2010
love it
The best part in coming to this spa is the instinct relaxation you feel just from the aroma and calming music
June 28, 2010
Low key environment, no frills, SMALL but very clean. Staff is extremely professional. Every time, I've had someone different and still notice a huge difference after every facial. I ask for a lot of extractions and the high frequency and they make it happen without charging extra. I wouldn't go for a couple's massage or to spend the day with a friend, this is more of a solitary place. Highly recommend.
June 10, 2010
Treated like Royalty
The staff and services rendered were superior. The spa is clean, quite and attractive. You couldn't ask for more. It's only of the best day spas in the city. so go and enjoy yourself like I did. You'll be glad you did

Fabulous Facial
Went to celebrate a friend's birthday. Booked 3 appointments for a Saturday afternoon - very easy, quite welcoming. The staff seemed to enjoy that we were celebrating. The "Spa" itself is on an upper floor of an office building. People have commented that is like a doctor's office, but for me - that's what I want for a facial - amazingly clean, crisp, and quiet. You have a private room, it isn't huge, but you are lying down. I had a 60 minute customized facial for my sensative skin. Included a scalp and hand massage and two masks for $100. I left glowing and totally relaxed. If you want a quiet, good facial at a good price - this is your place.
January 22, 2010
Rightfully named
I went to metamorphosis spa for the first time last week because I really needed a deep tissue massage. I have some really bad knots in my back and I can never seem to find a masseuse who will really work my knots. When I got Liz as my massage therapist, I knew right away I was in good hands (hehe). She was uh-mazing. I told her exactly where it hurt and she made sure to do something about it. She even used hot stones to relieve my back even though my massage technically did not include that technique. All in all I would say that my experience was great although I owe most of it to Liz.
December 15, 2007
very friendly
I generally find upscale salons to be a little intimidating, but the entire staff was very friendly and made me feel right at home. I recieved a facial and waxing service. Both were done very thoroughly and with great care. I will definitely be back!
December 15, 2007
Relaxing Facial
When I entered the spa, I was greeted by a very friendly, helpful receptionist. I found the spa to feel very calming and welcoming. The deep-pore cleansing facial I had was fabulous - very relaxing but also very professional. I have had many facial treatments before, but I have never had so many comments on how fresh and healthy my skin looked as after my treatment at Metamorphosis. I will be back next month to treat myself again.
August 31, 2007
Very Disappointing "Spa" Experience
I went to Metamorphosis on Friday after a long week at work and was entirely disappointed by the experience. There was nothing "spa" like about Metamorphosis and the amenities were awful. There was no changing room, relaxation room or shower. The waiting room is tiny, cramped, hot and the furniture is dilapidated. You change in the small room where you're going to have your treatment, and the "spa" doesn't even provide a suitable place to keep your clothes/bags. The bathroom is awful, with a plastic makeshift bidet attached to it. The bathroom also failed to contain any facial products or means by which to remove make up. One would think that since they don't provide you with anything to remove your own make-up, that the therapist would properly remove it. However, when my facial was over I still had mascara on my eyelashes and face. The facial was mediocre. Admittedly, I needed a good extraction, so I got the Clean as a Whistle facial. When the facial was over and I was getting dressed in the small room, I happened to look in the small mirror, and see that I was in fact not "clean as a whistle." I had to wait 45 minutes for my treatment despite the fact that I got there early, and the facial did not last the full hour as indicated upon their website. There are nicer spas (true spas) in the City that are comparable in price, but significantly nicer! I definitely will not be going back.
December 4, 2006
Great Experience!
Metamorphosis Day Spa was a gift. Loved every minute. Great service and people and the facial was top notch. The place was beautiful and spotless. Can't wait to come back the first chance I get. Loved it.
August 22, 2006
What a fabulous facial!
I was given a gift certificate for a facial at Metamorphosis, and it was wonderful! Marcy was great, and it was a very relaxing and soothing experience. I look forward to receiving another gift certificate!
