My Mom gave me a gift certificate for a colonic for my birthday. I couldn't believe what a terrible present it was and thought maybe she had started to hate me - lol :-). I decided not to let the money go to waste and made the appointment. I was surprised: the whole experience was pleasant and relaxing. The therapist was really friendly and obviously very experienced at making people feel comfortable. The hour flew by. After the treatment I spent a little time in their waiting room sipping herbal tea (felt like I was in the tropics) and picked up a flyer on a new therapy called the Metatron. I have a chronic circulation issue that's caused me to be on medication for several years and I've been looking for a more holistic approach to understanding the underlying cause. This afternoon I went in for my first Metatron appointment and was utterly amazed. The system scans your body and gives information about biological imbalances. It immediately picked up on the precise location of my circulatory problem and pinpointed specific pathogens that were contributing to the condition. In short, it confirmed a lot of what I already knew from medical testing, but in addition gave me information on the root causes so that I can treat them. I've had 2 great experiences so far. I wouldn't recommend the place if you can't do stairs (there's no elevator and the stairs are steep) or if you're looking for a high-end luxurious place. Guess what mom's getting for her next birthday...

I had problems with my skin since I was a teenager,For years I went to a number of dermatologist just to receive some temporary relief but never satisfactory. I found Le Cachet Day Spa on Line, made an appointment just for a skin consultation, they examined my skin and suggested the facials I would need. Honestly I expected a facial around $75.00 I was told that I would just waist my money, since the facial I need is a customized facial, specially designed for my skin with two different treatments, the price is $300.00 after thinking a bit, I agreed. I have to admit that I am glad that I decided to proceed with my facial treatment . I remembered my father used to tell me, you always get what you pay for in this life, he was right like always. The facial I received was an intense treatment like I never had in any doctors office nor other spas. The aesthetician cleaned my skin using some kind of European deep cleansing techniques, it was a little bit painful, I could feel how my skin is being really cleaned. After she begin with a second treatment using an organic papaya and apricot enzyme peel. My facial lasted over an hour, with relaxing music in the background. I don’t believe in miracles, but after the first treatment my skin had a tremendous visible improvement. It’s over a week now, at work everyone realized that my skin got better.I am looking forward to my second appointment in 4 weeks. O Yes, I definitely highly recommend Le Cachet day spa.
I am an African American women, who was always told, that since our skin color we cannot have a successful laser hair removal. I also seen some news report where African American clients have been scarred by lasers during hair removal, and that kept me a way from doing it. I am so glad that I found Le Cachet Laser Hair removal center, I knew that in order to perform Laser hair removal for our skin it has to be laser specially designed for black skin. It is my last treatment and I have no hair nor any scaring. As a young women I had a problem with facial hair which contributed to my acne problem. At Le Cachet I felt from the very beginning that I am in good hands, I had a strong impression, that they knew what they are doing, they made me feel comfortable and secure. I had 5 treatments and I am pleased to see such a wonderful result. My laser hair removal being done by Larisa who is using a special YAG laser for black skin. I already recommended Le Cachet Laser Hair removal to my girlfriend. I also like the fact that the place is spotless clean, the staff is professional, I found them very ethical since they told me from the very beginning that I will need at least 6 treatments. In many other places they tell you, that most is 3 treatments you will need, don’t believe in that , they just want you to start. I also very much recommend Le Cachet Laser Center.
Dear Dr. Lee, I had come across your “neck pillow” through a friend who had experienced a wonderful session with you, but had never gotten around to trying the pillow. What an amazing secret discovery! It gravitated toward me after being left behind in a corner. At first try I found it a bit stiff. Yet, something was extremely correct about it. My tension was melting away. I leaned back and absorbed the support of the neck pillow. After 20 min my sinuses began to relax and open for clear breathing. I could feel my blood circulation increase and my shoulder and neck muscle relax. I rotate the pillow to change the angle and find the most relaxing position with ease. This was all deeply moving. I've worked up to sleeping with my neck pillow most of the night. The more I use it the better I feel all day. I'm so impressed I had to share this experience. I've gifted the neck pillow to several friends and they all have had the same profound results. Please constitute to to make them and I will spread the word. The neck pillow by the Osaka Health Center is an essential support aid I think everyone should have one at home. Sincerely, Dominic Keyes Sous Chef
Bright Skin Care Salon it is great! Very clean and professional Estheticians, right on middle Manhattan! First waxing i ever had and first ever Brazilian bikini wax and I am extremely happy with the experience and with the results. Annie is amazing! She made it very comfortable and has painless as possible for me. This place is extremely clean. I was greeted with a beverage which was pleasant. She have super comfortable table that has a light aromatherapy to it which I loved. Annie also has all these extra oils and ointments that left me with an amazing looking bikini area. -- it didn't hurt! I had no rashes, or bumps or missing spots... I was simply flawless the rest of the day. I'm never going anywhere else. She uses a different type of wax that I'm used to, and there was really little to no pain at all! What I also loved is how knowledgeable and informative Annie is regarding hair growth and the waxing technique. It put my mind at ease that I was under the care of an experienced master esthetician. HUGE TIP...
Dear Julia, you were recommended by a dear friend of mine, I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoyed your facial. I have been going to other spa���s in New York City for years, but after receiving your facial I felt like this was my first facial comparing to other facials I have received in my life time. In the beginning I was a bit hesitant to have two treatments as you recommended after our consultation, you offered the Blueberry Enzyme peel and the special facial for dry skin. I thought it was a bit expensive, but after seeing the result������.., I am your client for the rest of my life. Please note, I recommended your spa to my co worker Caroline, after experiencing your facial she was talking about it the whole day. I am so glad that I find you, unfortunately when you reach 40+ we girls need people like you, to take care of our skin. The phone number of Le Cachet Spa is in my cell phone so I will not loose it. Thank you, and I am looking forward to see you again. Monica
I work around the area where Nina’s spa is located. I walk by it all the time, thought let me go and check it out. Had European setting, great dials throughout spa week. I was actually going there to see what can they do about acne scarring?!! I had consultation with one of the employees there and they offered me Laser Facial that will help with scarring. As a first time costumer I felt kind of special. After I paid for my service I was talking with my esthetician , I think it was nice of her to tell me more about my skin type and explain to me what my next step should be. [ By the way, Skin had really radiant glow to it, my scarring certainly got lighter] To EVERYONE that has been going through acne problems and left with dark scarring I suggest to get Laser Facial. After three treatments my scarring almost disappear .Another thing, Nina’s staff treats me the same way they were from the moment I walked in there. Same service no slacking.
I decide to surprise my husband with spa treatment. He never ever had a massage before so I was pretty nervous about his reaction because he is very picky. I got a special Valentine package, which was a very good deal for two people. When we came to the spa we was greet with very friendly Russian people. I haven’t been in Russian spa so for me it was exiting to try it. And I’m so glad that I did it. First we had an AMAZING massage, and I was so pleased with my esthetician that I bought 2 more massages for future. My husband felt like a new born baby!!!! After massage we had a face treatment, and Lady who was working with my husband suggest him a very good product for his face, and I was very surprised when my husband told me that he will buy it! He never used ANY product for his face!! I was very happy that I found Nina’s. I like everything about this spa, and I think if you really want to relax you should come HERE!
I love this place for many reasons; cleanliness, friendly staff and an environment conducive to relaxation and zero inane chatter. My top reason is Adrianna - she does nails like no one in Manhattan does nails. I know, I've had my nails done for over 20 years in various incarnations (tips, acrylic, wraps, etc.) and am now in my natural nail incarnation. Adrianna took my weird thumbs and transformed them into little beauties that I love to look and and flaunt. She soaked (in a big bowl of warm soapy sweet smelling liquid) both my hands for about 5 minutes and then got to work, shaping, buffing, paring away excess skin and then soaked them again and repeated the same process all over again. When it came time for her to polish my nails, she did something NO OTHER NAIL TECHNICIAN EVER DID FOR ME: she took her time, layering the color on so that it would set into the ridges and then went over them again and then a third time.
Really nice spa. I came there first time in need of good back massage,they had availability in half hour, so i decide to wait, since i had back pain for a few days.They where very nice, gave me some green tee while i was waiting. Michele was amazing, i think best massage i ever had,she worked every mussel in my back.Since i had no time for longer massage i'll be back for another one next week,they recommend to make an appointment at least few days in advance. Massage room was very warm and lots of candles,she suggest to get hot stone massage for next time,its better for sore mussels When you walk in you may think you are in hair salon, but their rooms are all over that you don't see. It was busy in salon but i did not hear any nose from my massage room. They also told me they have a shower in case i need to refresh before or after massage. Great place, recommend to visit.Very professional stuff.
