Super clean and a cool little spot. Quite friendly and professional. Regarding massage wood have appreciated more pressure for the deep tissue.

Hi Renata, Thank you for your review! I am happy you enjoyed our spa, but apologize the pressure did not meet your needs. We try to accommodate all of our guest's requests and had recommended a male therapist 'deep tissue specialist' with 20 years experience to better suite your request, but you had specifically requested a female (although you were...

I went to this spa with a persistent severe headache hoping a massage might relieve it somewhat. Much to my surprise, Stephanie was excellent at finding the spasms, relieving them and using perfect amount of pressure. I have had many headaches for many many yrs. These headaches were different and severe, assuming they might be migraines. I had this massage... More

Very disappointed with the massage quality and pressure used during the massage. I agree with the other reviewer , felt more like a skin rub. I added 15 min Thai foot massage for extra $15 to my 1 hour massage Thai massage, my massage started at 6pm and ended at 7pm. From my experience if you need a quality massage... More

First timer clients usually do not request Thai massage -as they are not too familiar with this authentic type of massage. I'm sorry to hear that perhaps a Thai Massage might not have been the best choice for you as it focuses on moving the Energy lines called Sen lines in the body with primarily a lot up stretching.

The massage therapist helped me with issues I was having with my sciatic with just the perfect amount of pressure. The facial... More

I tried the 90 minute special expecting a really great massage. I've been to a massage therapist quite often, so am experienced in what to expect. I'd classify my session as a very light skin rub. For $79.99 there was no relief of tension at all. The other issue I had was that in the summer with light clothing, if... More
