I go for the yoga

I've been going here for yoga classes for almost 4 years. Some teachers come and go, but the best ones are still there. I like IO for the ambience of the yoga studio (hardwood floors, lots of light) and the class options, but also for the other students that go. I've met a lot of nice people at class. I also go to the spa for waxing, facials and - when I have the extra cash - massages. The spa is small, but I like the steam room in the Women's locker room and the deck out back. I've always had a great massage, but the services are on the expensive side. Sign up for email specials.

Ilya is the Best Massage Therapist!!

I was visiting San Francisco and had a Spafinder gift certificate. I scheduled a massage at International Orange and lucked out with Ilya. It was, by far, the best massage I have ever had. A real focus on relaxation and reducing stress. I will be back on every visit to SF!!

so so massage

After hearing all the hype about this place I finally made it in. I was a bit disappointed. The atmosphere was not relaxing at all, I felt cramped and awkward. The actual massage was just average. It was not spa like at all.

SF WEEKLY's BEST Spa & Yoga Combo 2008

I just picking up SF Weekly's BEST OF SAN FRANCISCO 2008 and saw that IO is rated BEST SPA & YOGA COMBO! I took some of my own medicine this week and am feeling more revved up than ever thanks to my wellness routine this week. Today, I had an amazing yoga with Rosemary at 9:15am and yesterday I had a truly pampering and shoulder-softening 90 minute massage with Christy. I am biased, but I love what we offer at IO and just wanted to share the good news. Try going during the weekday sometime and pray for sun on the deck...that is heavenly. :) AD

my boyfriend has been a client of IO for a couple of years now and has been trying to get me to switch where i go for my salon services{I AM VERY PICKY}. last week he surprised me with a massage for the two of us at IO. why did it TAKE ME SOOOOOO LONG to go there? From the time I entered the place, i felt GREAT things were going to happen. The staff at the front desk was really helpful and made me fell comfortable from the moment i walked in! after getting into my rob, the two us sat outside on this BEAUTIFUL sun deck! next, ... the message. WOW, best ever!!! Nathan was so wise when it came to all the parts of the body. I was very relaxed and at one point i even went to sleep because it felt so good!
Now, it looks like my boyfriend got his wish, I AM HOOKED ON IO and cant wait to have another service there! if you are looking for a clean, simple, YET amazing spa, IO is the place.
thanx, JORDY!!!

The Worst Spa Experience Ever!

The Worst Spa Experience Ever!

International Orange was disappointing from the time I tried to make an appointment, until the time I requested a refund.

The staff's attitude on the phone was the first red-flag. I have rarely been treated this disrespectfully when trying to book an appointment. The attitude was underwhelming and the staff was very disorganized and not friendly. The facility is minimal. The changing room is barely large enough for one person to move around in. The lockers are small -- my clothes were piled up on top of one another -- as was the steam room. Essentially it fits one, possibly two people.

As I am a large, athletic male I requested a man. Each time I showed up there was a petite female waiting for me. The staff claims they tried to call me, but I never received any calls from them. It felt as if I they had intentionally allowed me to come in and then tried to push me into something other than what I had requested. It was a total waste of my time and resources.

I suppose the staff's lack of understanding my needs and their unwillingness to even remotely try to accommodate them was the most disappointing, therefore on a scale of one to ten I would give International Orange a zero.

International Orange not for Men

International Orange is for Women only--- Men need not apply. I made several phone calls to make an appointment with a male for a massage. I re- arranged my schedule and inconvenienced several others in order to fit my appointment into the International Orange schedule. It was my Birthday. I am not from San Francisco. I am a former international diving champion. I have tone and muscles that only a man with strong hands can tackle.
After several phone calls, I was assured that I would have a strong man giving me the massage,When I arrived, I was shown to a very small dressing room, removed my clothes and put on the appointed robe with a pair of sandals attached. Unfortunately, the slippers were both for the LEFT FOOT. I had to go into another locker to get a right footed slipper to make a pair.

I then went to the waiting area for the therapist as several people walked by with robes saying ""PRACTICE SILENCE"".

Shortly thereafter, a little girl, perhaps 5'4"" approached me to tell me she was going to give me a massage. I looked at her with dismay. After several phone calls, taking off my clothes, trying to find a ""pair"" of slippers that matched, the final insult was this little girl that thought she was going to give me a massage.
i was not happy as i felt i had been lied to from the beginning, starting when I checked in as there was no mention that my masseur was to be a young girl.


Instead of wearing robes that say-""Practice Silence"", they should be wearing robes that say- ""Practice Honesty"".

Lastly, I have had massages in some of the best Spas all over the world. The sum of my experience at International Orange is that it is truly a rip-off for MEN!

A good friend of mine had a similar experience.

Massage Fantastico!

We went to IO for massages as a joint Christmas present. We both had the IO signature massage. Nathan (my masseuse) was great. He was attentive to my requests and quiet (not a big fan of the chit chat). I spent time before and after in the steam room and enjoying some tea and treats by the fire before showering with their great products and heading off to dinner. The staff was friendly, the ambiance was calming and unpretentious, and the service was great. I will be back just as soon as I can afford it! Here's what my husband thought.....

Joe, my masseuse was equally great. He gave me a strong massage and was responsive to the fact that I had had ankle surgery about 8 weeks previously. The environs were understated and comfortable. The steam room gave a LOT of steam and got good and hot. The shower pressure could have been a little stronger...but not so bad. I give this place a big thumbs up for the relaxing urban spa experience.

too granola for me

i like this place, it is beautiful, the service is pretty good and the treatments are great for what they are, but this is not my kind of spa. I like yoga, but do it to workout and wouldn't want to come here on a regular basis, it's part of my gym routine and there's no where else to actually workout pre or post yoga. Also overall it's more a fro-fro, hollistic spa which isn't what i look for in spas. I do think it's worth visiting as it's right up some people's alley, but i personally just didn't like my visit and will not be returning.
