Please regularly wash your linens and make your rooms less smelly. Moreover, When people come for massage, they want to listen lighter music not some hip hop or pop

Business response:

Thank you for your response! I assure you that all of our lines are clean and are changed prior to each session. We’re currently under renovations to make our spa even better, which may explain the smell. Most of our clients enjoy the music and playlist as it sets us apart from the tradional spa but you may have the option to suggest other music during session. We thank you for your visit and hope to see you again.

Aurora was short and curt. I would not see her again.

Business response:

We appreciate your response! As one of our hardest working Massage Therapist and as Manager of the spa, Aurora is strictly business. This may explain the feeling of her "being short". Most therapist prefer less communication in session so that they may focus on the clients needs. Each therapist has a unique style of massage, there may be a therapist who is more fitting to the style you desire. Sorry for your experience.

I loved the music, the vibe, the comfy table, furniture and easy chic of the place. It was a little hard to find so a sign on the main Wash Ave sidewalk pointing down the ally and one pointing to the Spa doors would be helpful. Plus it was a little hard to know about so maybe some promotion on social media would be helpful. If I didn't bump into Aurora I wouldn't have known it was there.

The design of the shop is lovely, along with the scent. The massage rooms are also very welcoming. I really loved the discount for new members and I'll be back when I visit St. Louis again. One area of improvement was the music. It was way too loud to fully unwind. I was okay with the different style of music as most massage music is boring, but it shouldn't feel like I'm at a store but rather truly unwinding for a massage.

Angelica was great and really helped loosen up some tightness in my back. Not crazy about thinking I'm getting a 90-minute massage and finding out afterward it was only 80 minutes. A receptionist would help, rather than having the therapist handle intake and payment.

Thank you for your feedback! We absolutely plan on hiring a receptionist in the near future. Our goal is to have a full staff that is passionate & professional. Due to the lack of applicants fitting this description, we have been hiring slowly. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

I was pretty disappointed in the massage. Angelica was very professional and nice, but the massage itself was disappointing. It was very weak, even after I asked for more pressure. My muscles usually feel great after a massage, but i felt no different after this one. It wasn't BAD it just isn't something I would pay for again. The room was also cold, so every time the blanket was lifted to access some part of my body, I was cold.

Business response:

Thank you for the honest feedback Reese! We have worked out the temperature issue since your last visit and also hired a second therapist. Perhaps Christie may be a better fit for your needs. Feel free to schedule a massage with her and we will honor the new client special during that visit! Have a great day!
