All you need to know about this place is one word: HODA. She gives the best facials imaginable. A little background: I signed up for a Zspot deal for a 3-hour pampering session that included a massage, facial and mani pedi, but in the interim they lost their masseuse and were searching for a new one. They were very willing to work with me, however, and offered me an upgrade in service. I initially refused because I wanted a full-body massage and told them I could do the other services and wait for a masseuse. So I scheduled my facial with Hoda. I had only had one facial somewhere else before and it hurt like the dickens, so I was reluctant to have another. Hoda immediately set me at ease. She was fantastic and it turned out to be one of the most relaxing facials I have ever had. I had a galvanic facial. She applied just the right pressure and strokes and made my skin feel sparkly clean after exfoliating and scrubbing. Honestly, I could've stayed two hours for a facial and skipped the mani-pedi because she was so good. I liked her so much that I accepted the salon's offer to upgrade me to a special massage/upper body treatment conducted by Hoda. I go back in today and honestly can't wait. If she weren't so good at facials, I'd recommend they hire her as a full-time masseuse. The spa is located in a tiny house off of Ridge Road near the Whole Foods Shopping Center and Wade Ave. Don't let the little unassuming home scare you away. Hoda is a hidden gem, and Lynae was very accommodating.

Recently I visted Skin Essence A Day Spa recommended by my best friend. I had really bad acne skin since I was a teenager. I've tried many different treatments, including antibiotics and other day spas, but nothing worked. When I visited Skin Essence, I was extremly impressed with my result from the first acne treatment I received. Everybody around me, my family and coworkers noticed the change in my skin complection, and the decrease in my pimples. I was so excited to see my new skin that has been hiding under my acne for years! Lina made me really comfortable by explaining to me the procedures, the price, the length of treatment and the result that I should expect after my treatment. She spent an extra 30 minutes with me on the first visit explaning to me the special cleansing technique she designed that I need to use in order to enhance my acne treatment. Not only did she teach me it, she even went through it step by step with me. She analysed my skin using the skin scope and magnify lamp inch by inch. Every product she recommended for my skin showed tremendous result. Lina truly cares about my skin and does her best to help my acne problem. Skin Essence staffs are wonderful and very friendly. I had a pedicure there and really enjoyed it as well. Their pedicure tub have ozne system that kills all bacteria and fungus. You can put your worries aside when you visit Skin Essence. They provide a very relaxing atomosphere with tasteful green tea!
I have lived all over the US and have received massages from various massage therapists in several different states, including North Carolina and the RTP area. I tried the Spa by Mitchell's at the Triangle Town Center location in Raleigh when a friend suggested that this is the best place to get a massage in the triangle area. She was so right! My massage therapist was Sherri and she gave me the best 85 minute Swedish massage I have ever received. I could tell Sherri was very knowledgeable about the anatomy, muscles, etc. of the body by her initial conversation with me, and then I was even more impressed with her skill once the massage began. She gave special attention to those areas I expressed were problem areas in addition to giving an overall outstanding massage. I will definitely be going back to Sherri. My friend sees another massage therapist there, and she says she is also excellent. I would absolutely recommend the Spa by Mitchell's for anyone looking for a great place to get a great massage. I did not get any other services (hair, pedicure, facial,etc.) so I can't comment on those although the people I talked with who were getting those services also seemed very pleased with this place.
