I've had a lot of massages and really prefer a firm massage. The therapist was excellent. Who would have thought that you could get a good sports/deep tissue massage in C'ville? Pleasant atmosphere. Will definitely do again.

My husband and I were in dire need of good massages after our long drive from New England. We were fortunate to find this place on trip advisor and they were able to take us in short notice.

Went for a Brazilian and pedi. Very relaxing atmosphere. Fast when it mattered. Best foot massage ever. Staff were so polite and was reasonably priced. Usually Spas are EITHER wonderful and ridiculously expensive or hasty and cheap. Not this Spa. Would definitely recommend!

I had a massage with Joanna and WOW! I had no idea a massage could be that effective in taking away my pain. I feel like a new person. She used techniques I had not experienced and I have had many, many massages. One visit and I feel fantastic!

I expected a lot more of a spa experience for my pedicure, which was not cheap ($35). It was an underwhelming experience for both me and my friend!
