I loved this place. I have been there many times over the years and always great service. There are many girls there and they are truly from Bangkok. I got great service last time,my visit was with two girls and they did everything to pleasure me.
I got a birthday gift with was the "queen's package" : massage, facial, Mani and pedi. Let me start by saying I don't think they know what that are doing here and I don't think they have licences. Facial: she was nice, but she put a bunch of stuff on my face and I left feeling oily and gross. Massage: she basically just lightly rubbed my body for a very awkward hour of my life. I asked for more pressure, to which she sighed and begrudgingly replied. At one part she started PUNCHING me!! (It's felt better than the nothing of before) But then she forgot? I asked again, but this time she had headphones in and could not hear me. Then it got interesting, I felt a plop! And then a tiny tip,tip,tap on my butt. "This is a weird massage" I thought? It happened over and over until I realized that it was her phone, and she was actually using my BUTT to text while rubbing me with one hand. I've never felt so disrespected in my life. But I was just laying there naked and she had headphones so I couldn't get up and say anything to her or anyone else. Pedi: same girl! She obviously had a matter at home to take care of, because texted, she rushed me, then she asked me to pick a color. but when i didn't pick in 2 seconds, she snatched the swatches and said "you pick later" and she was generally rude. other patrons in the salon were looking at me like I did something to her! Mani: I told the new women, what happened, she she just said "she probably has family problems." And tried to upsell me on gel. I said no with TEARS IN MY EYES because i was leaving not feeling like a queen, despite the $160 queen package that was supposed to be 3 hours of pampering. I left after 2 hours of oil being drenched on my face, awkward light rubbing, butt texting, being PUNCHED, asian women yelling at me and a free gel upgrade that was supposed to compensate for everything.
Went with my sister in law to get our girls nails done and ended up being kicked out due to my son who is 1 1/2 crying. We were greeted with an attitude from the nail tech. Who rolled her eyes told the kids they cannot touch anything although they only touched the pamphlet mints and hand dryer. My son cried only 3 times and not long. We were told that he was disturbing the spa guests. The lady said that they close at 7 and they are being nice by stay3 open even though we got there at 6 and was told we had to wait 30 minutes for service. The lady told me that I had to take my son outside in the heat and wait for the girls to be served. I told her I was not taking my 1 1/2 year old outside in the heat. She said well yall have to go. I said we are paying customers she said she hate to turn away money but you are disturbing guests . Mind you besides us there was only 2 other people there. Will never go back there and I will tell everyone I know not to go there.
Exceptional Carizma is an extremely talented and professional stylist. I'm always happy when I leave her salon
South Philly Day Spa is under new ownership and management. All previous complaints have been addressed. Definitely come back to visit!
For my bday present I chose to go with the swedish massage and it was OH SO GREAT! My therapist was very professional, helpful, and knowledgeable with the trouble area in my lower back. Hope to have them visit again soon and also will be treating my mother next time around:)
Lisa Cataldi and her staff at Handled with Care are absolutely fantastic. The spa is clean, professional, comfortable and very well run. I personally see Lisa, and she is amazing but my friends rave about each of their therapists as well. Whether you are looking for an affordable indulgence, or are in pain and hurting, or just want the perfect gift that everyone loves to get, you can't go wrong here! Love it!
Hands down, Thumbs up the best swedish massage i have had in a longtime. My therapist was very professional, friendly, and helpful in accommodating my needs. I truly recommend.
I can't say enough good words about Enigma, I go there primarily for laser treatments! I do bikini laser removal and had my veins on my legs done. I have done 3 sessions so far with Irina for my veins and the result is AMAZING! Honestly my legs looked bruised for a week, but it is worth it. My spider veins almost cleared completely. I need 1 more treatment. With my bikini no more ingrown hair. My bikini is so smooth after all this time. So far I have a Wonderful Experience!
This review is for a Revival Facial with Vitamin C Peel from Mylynn Nguygen. (I mention her by name only because my friend also received the *same* treatment from Porche, however, when comparing notes, we actually had completely different experiences.) I cannot say enough about the facial that I received from Mylynn. She was thorough, exacting, but gentle with her extractions. She spent an inordinate amount of time detoxifying my skin of all its impurities. (My friend did not get any extractions whatsoever.)Mylynn also gave me a deep tissue massage to my neck, arms, and shoulders. (Porche only provided a light touch.)Mylynn slathered my hands in oils and warmed them in gloves (Porche did not offer this service to my friend.)Mylynn offered sage advice about what to expect (a darkening of the skin and then a sloughing period). She also recommended that I use a generous application of both sunscreen and moisturizer. She then offered a small sample of vitamin C lotion. (Porche did not mention any of these things nor offer the said lotion.)As far as our notes compare, the only similarity was the actual vitamin C peel. Normally I would feel that $140 (but $110 with an online discount) would be a bit on the high for a facial -- but with Mylynn, it was worth every penny! Both my friend and I are already planning to specifically request Mylynn for our next appointments.
