Brooklyn >Providence Day Spa
“Providence Day Spa is in a great location and has a great feel so I decided to give their massages a second chance after a mediocre first experience.”
“Seems like a great place that hasn't hired the top therapists.”
“Great prices, great staff and fabulous massages.”
“Very pretentious and I will never spend my money there!”
“The facials have sooo much massage in them it's like you had a full 60 minute massage by the time youre done.”
The massage for two was the best!.
My girlfriend and I had a private steam shower followed by a massage in the same room. The steam was really nice because I don't like public steam rooms. The masseuses were great. We both really like massage but I hate going someplace new and getting a bad massage.
The front desk told us that if the people we had weren't deep enough we should let them know. When we were done, they asked us if the massages were what we needed. Oh Yeah! They were!!
I had a great experience!!!.
Hey, they don't sell croissants! What do you mean?
I was just sent there by my husband for a massage and facial treat! I had the foot scrub and the eye treatment.
I feel so taken care of. The front desk was sweet, and British (not snobby, just Brittish LOL). They gave me hot tea before I steamed.
The massage was done by a woman who really knew what she is doing. She wrote down her tips for me.
The facial was unlike any I have ever had, great for my skin and relaxing too. I have a lot of extractions that need to be done, so for a facial to be good and relaxing is rare for me.
You'd never know from the outside that this spa is the nicest in the neighborhood. Once your in the lounge it feels so homey.
Now that I found a place that is as good as anything in Manhattan and much less expensive, I am a happy Brooklynite!
great experience w/ one minor drawback. I had a lovely massage w/ 2 "mini indulgences" yesterday. My Masseuse, Christine, was great and I enjoyed the steam shower before the massage too. Only one thing prevents me from giving 5 stars. The massage was a gift from my husband. I arrived in plenty of time, gave the receptionist (very pleasant person) the certificate, filled out paperwork etc and all was efficient and fine. When I was all done w/ my spa treatment and ready to go, a different receptionist really "harshed my mellow'! She didn't want to let me leave before she checked that my certificate was in the system. Well the 1st desk person did that before I went in and they had over an hour to get their ducks in a row, but no. It was like she was saying - wait - let me make sure you aren't trying to con us before i let you leave - smooth - really smooth... not. By the way - all was in order. And the massage was fine - just unprofessional behavior at the front desk at the finish...
This place is not good!!. I walked into the establishment and asked for a brochure and the lady at the front desk informed me that there were no more brochures and I should check the website and but she never told me the name of the website and how could you assume. Very pretentious and I will never spend my money there!! Businesses are closing everywhere around them you would figure that they would be nicer!
This place bites- seriously. Why go to this place where the people will treat you like you are worth nothing... There are so many other spas around. Try the Art of Natural Beauty Spa, Tres Bella Spa, Smith Street Spa. Go anywhere but to this place if you actually want to relax and be treated with respect.
This spa hits the spot.. Here's a trick to save a little money! Get the facial and a 30 minute massage. The facials have sooo much massage in them it's like you had a full 60 minute massage by the time youre done. It's not like they are skimping on the facial either. The facialists use the downtime when you are steaming or masking to really rub your feet, hands, calves, arms and scalp. The scalp massage is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. So, book the massage first, end with the facial and it feels like you were there for hours, and you save a little money. I'm totally happy to have found this place!
Ehhh. This place is fine I guess. Nothing special but not awful either. qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq
Excepting, warm and friendly. I've had some odd looks and uncomfortable stares in other spas when going in for treatments with my partner. I guess even in NYC people are still ignorant from time to time. Not so at this spa. When we came in no one blinked. No one asked stupid questions obviously trying to determine if we are indeed a couple. Everyone was warm and gracious. My partner and I were able to relax without feeling like the "main attraction". We each had a massage and body scrub. The treatments were way better than most places I have been. The practitioners were professional and friendly. **I would recommend this place to anyone looking for high quality treatments at a fair price, done by true professionals.
Great concept--great practitioners--disappointing management.
If you're willing to have your needs as a customer/patient come last--this is the place to go!
I'm saying this after having given Providence Day Spa the benefit of the doubt for many months. The practitioners here are very knowledgable, the atmosphere is simple but pleasant--that's why I've held out this long. But unfortunately a professional attitude is sorely lacking.
Not only did my Spa Week massage get cancelled--the respective front desk employee fired--rescheduled, and then cancelled again--less than an hour before appointment time on a Friday morning because owner and therapist Providence did not "want to come in for a spa massage because she needed to prepare for Shabbat." (There is a 24 hour cancellation period for clients).
I had been coming in for accupuncture treatements with Laura Gabbe for about 9 months. At the start of treatment, I had been told that to be effective, treatement had to occur at least once a week. Then Laura had a family emergency, and two consecutive appointments were cancelled. Going through a family emergency myself, I was (and continue) to be very sympathetic.
What I would have considered appropriate professional demeanor is a call from Laura or the spa management telling me what effect the treatment interruption would have, if any--and provide me with the name of a practitioners who could continue the treatment--as well as the records of my previous sessions.
Instead, I was told by the owner and the staff that they felt uncomfortable contacting Laura, were waiting for her to call in, had no access to her records etc.--and was chided for not being sufficiently understanding.
I'm still astounded that a place designed to make you feel good can make you so bad.
I would have expected this course of events from a contractor or a company like Verizon--not from a place dedicated to wellness and healing.
Steam Shower rocks.. Not a fan of the place itself, but the steam shower is amazing. As in full on great. For $25 you can use it for like 20 minutes without getting a massage.
