In response to Cary R.'S review from the owner: I usually don't "challenge" guest's reviews, but I felt it necessary in this instance. Cary R's information is correct regarding making her appointment. She's also correct in noting the fact that she didn't make her appointment. The point she didn't make is that not only did she not make the appointment, but she didn't have the courtesy to call and cancel, or explain the situation - she just decided to "no-show, no-call". We always charge full service price in these situations. It has nothing to do with us "hurting that bad for money that they have to rip off their customers" as she states in her review. We pay our therapist to show up and perform her service. Because we care about our employees, we pay them even if the client doesn't show up. If Cary R. would have at least called and cancelled or re-scheduled, there would have been a possibility that we could have filled that spot with another guest. Because she didn't, the spot remained unbooked and we paid the therapist. Our front desk staff doesn't state "you may be charged a service fee". Our policy is clearly stated in our menu, online and over the phone. It's why we require a credit card to book appointments. I'm very happy that Cary R. at least admitted that we offered her 50% off her next service (in fact, the price we quoted her was in excess of 50% off). It was a very generous offer that we usually don't extend to guests who "no-show, no-call". This obviously was not good enough for her, causing her to post poor reviews all over the internet. I'm sure most reasonable people will agree that my response has merit.

There truly is nothing better than going to Planet Beach River Ridge! Whenever I am stressed or just need a pick me up, I know right where to go! The first time I visited Planet Beach, I went in expecting only to see a bunch of tanning beds. Boy was I wrong! They have a wide variety of unique spa services! I walk into the spa and I am immediately greeted by a warm and friendly smile! While the staff if getting me ready for my services, I look around and notice how clean the spa is! Once it is time for me to enjoy my services, the girls walk me back to my room, which is set and ready for me with a towel and a mint on the chair. Now I get to relax and enjoy my services! The best part about my membership is how affordable it is! It seems so little compared to the results & service I receive! Not only am I getting a healthy glow from tanning and Mystic, I also get to relax is hydration while also moisturizing my skin! I have and will continue to recommend Planet Beach River Ridge to all my family, friends, and co-workers!!
I was staying at the Hampton Inn on Gravier. A great hotel that I use every time I'm visit NOLA. Recommended by the conceirge was Spa Atlantis for a nice deep tissue massage. The place was beautiful and tranquil. The staff was warm and welcoming, Zoe who performed my massage was incredible. I felt completely at ease as she worked her magic hands to take me to another place. I was incredilby happy with my service, and returned the next morning to have treat myself to a delux pedicure. Sylvia was sweet, professional, and warm. She was very detailed, went out of her way to make me feel at ease while she worked. She offered me wine or champagne, which was a nice touch. I didn't feel rushed as I did at other spas I visited on past visits. I found the prices to be moderate but well worth it and will definitely book ahead on future visits.
My chronic back and neck pain are always in search of a massage person with expertise. Thank goodness I heard about Anne Atkinson in New Orleans. I hesitantly made an appointment with Anne, hesitant because of past disappointments and even worse pain following former massages and physical therapies. It has happened all too often. It was a delightful day after my first massage with Anne Atkinson and the ones that followed were a continual relief of symptoms and pain. I became frisky, young and MORE importantly without pain after a long series of events! This women is a miracle worker worth much more than what she charges. I think I should schedule with her again NOW!
Anne specializes in personalized messages. Before the message she tries to get an idea of what your needs are. Such as, are you having pain in a specific area, are you holding stress in your neck, shoulders, back, head? This is not done as a quick conversation on the way to the message table; she discusses it with you until all your problems are addressed. I find her easy to talk to and I love that she doesn't talk during the message unless it is to be sure that the message is as you like it. Her message room is clean, quiet and relaxing to be in. In fact, I can feel the tension building up, think it's about time for a 90 minute message right now!
I have walked out of paris parker salons with nothing but beautiful cuts and color. I switch between about two different colorists, depending on who is available. I think that the training program is far above par and I would let any of the interns style my hair. I read a review about the "Paris Parer School" but I think that the person is referring to the Aveda Institute in Metaire, which I too have had bad expieriences. However, Aveda is it's own school separate from Paris Parker. I totally agree to never EVER go to the Aveda institute!!! You will regret it!!!
What I appreciate about Anne is her ability to tailor the massage experience to your specific needs. If there is a particular area or problem that needs attention, she is on it. If you need to talk while you are on the table, she is a great conversationalist and listener. If you want to relax and fall asleep while in her capable hands, that happens. Though the language of spirituality is not promoted, Anne clearly has a spirtual side which is evident in her attitude toward the individual who is in her care. I go away from each session envigorated and relaxed.
From the first introduction, Anne’s calming personality sets the tone for relaxation. Not only is she professional and highly skilled, she takes the time to really listen to any issues I am having and incorporates specific techniques for those issues. Her massages are ever changing, introducing the latest techniques. I see Anne for relaxation and stress relief as well as for chronic physical issues, as a form of physical therapy. I consider her massages part of my routine well being program and have been seeing her at least once a month for several years.
This is the first review I've written for a hair stylist, ever: Whether Paris Parker at One Canal Place in NOLA is on your way or out of the way, it'll be worth your while to visit JASON ASHFORD for a haircut and/or style. Jason has cut my hair 3 times -- and it's clear he's passionate about his work. He's patient, consistent and a good listener. And most important, he knows how to cut long layers so that they move just right. Plus I paid only $25 for a cut that was well worth $100. Give JASON a call today. His prices may soon be going up.
i have been a client of anne's for years and have referred others to her. She is professional , experienced and caring . She continues to study and learn new approaches to her field. She has an excellent knowledge of the body and how it works both physically and spiritually. She is committed to creating a positive result during her sessions and is also very personable and caring. i would and do recommend her to friends when they are looking to have a massage whether it be therapeutic or strictly indulgence.
