The Best Massage We've have ever had in my life!!!! – My wife and I went to Spadyssey for massages on our 1 year anniversary!! Little did we know that 90 min later we would have experienced the best massages and the nicest therapists ever.. I went in with an achy head, neck, back, ankle and apparently misaligned legs, which my therapist very skillfully and gracefully fixed. I left feeling better than I have in a long time. My wife truly enjoyed her massage as well. The music was soothing, the atmosphere relaxing...Not only was the massage amazing, but we felt like we really connected with our therapists on a different level. After our massage, we got dressed and when we walked out, they had even made us a celebratory mimosa for our 1 yr anniversary!! Simply an amazing experience.. 2nd to none. We recommend it wholeheartedly to everyone!!
don't go for the mani-pedi – First for the atmosphere....pathetic! A little tiny shop that was so dark I had trouble filling out their masssage form. The bathroom was clean enough but had damaged ceiling tiles and the place over all was very run down and cheesy. No frills, no robes, no slippers, oh but they did offer watter out of little tiny bathroom sized paper cups.
The mani-pedi station was dismal. The foot soak (Walmart carries better) didn't even cover my ankles and was lukewarm with bubbles that did nothing and no massaging action. After I saw where the girl placed the tools I wondered if they ever were disinfected between customers and felt really disgusted. The girl stated the same exact information as she put each product on your toes and fingers like you forgot after the pedicure what each product did! She was like a robot, never looked at you or talked to you at all.
The massage therapist really knew her stuff and the sore back I went in with disappeared within 10 minutes and that was before she started massaging me. She did some little trick with pressure points and rocking my leg back and forth. No chiropractor needed this week! But boy could she TALK. She never shut up! Okay and that's my personailty too but the whole idea of a massage and calming music is to RELAX and she did not give your mind a chance to do that.
Glad I had coupons and discounts for this because if I had paid full price I would have flipped! Never again for the mani-pedi....maybe for the massage it was really good but I've had just as good at other places with better atmosphere and quieter massage therapist.
Very, very good – I've had really, really good massages before and Spadyssey probably just made it to the top of the list. A friend went there last month and was raving about her massage. Then last week I moved in an awkward way and must have done something to my muscles because I ended up with slightly painful knot running up and down my back.
After a day of discomfort, I decided to give Spadyssey a call. The receptionist was pretty knowledgeable and recommended the deep tissue massage. One the day of my appointment, I arrived about 15 minutes early. I walked into soothing music and pleasant aromas.
I was welcomed by the receptionist and invited to have a seat. She gave me a form where I could indicate the areas I needed extra attention. I must have circled five areas.
While I was waiting to go in, a couple was leaving and they had smiles on their faces and said they loved it and would be back. That only served to make me want my massage even more.
My therapist greeted me and brought me into a massage room that had a beautiful Asian decor. I was asked about my trouble spots and ensured that they'd be addressed. After getting onto the table, the therapist came back in and began warming up the muscles on by back which felt heavenly (I don't why I don't get massages more frequently).
The pressure gradually increased and my muscles began to feel like butter. I could literally feel my knots melting away. I would classify my therapist as I learned about knots that I didn't even know I had and how various knots caused other knots in other places.
I was on the table for no more than 10 minutes before the pain in my back was completely gone. I couldn't believe it. The rest of the massage was icing on the cake! The scalp massage was just as good as my hair stylist. halfway through, I asked if I could extend my massage to a 90 minute, but was unable to do so. After the massage was over, I was urged to do some gradual deep breathing and to stretch. There was a bottle of Figi water waiting for me at the receptionist desk, which was a perfect punctuation to a perfect massage.
I have already booked a massage for next month and this time I'm getting the 90 minute. The staff is great, the massage was great, and I would have given spadyssey 5 stars if it were a larger space (the massage rooms themselves are spacious, which I liked). Overall, it's a great little spa in a great little city.
Don't waste your money here – I went to this spa with 2 friends after viewing the website expecting a relaxing spa experience. I was concerned as soon as we walked in the door and saw the tiny area for the pedicures and manicures. We waited almost 30 minutes for the staff to get off the phone and begin our massages. Before my massage began I identified the key areas I wanted the therapist to focus on, apparently he didn't listen or forgot this. My friend was to receive a 60 minute massage, her therapist rushed thru a 30 minute massage then left with no explanation. The pedicures were done in a tiny area by the reception desk, the area was not calming or professional. They used cheap foot baths anyone can buy at Walmart, they filled these tubs with a bucket of water. Electrical cords were exposed and I nearly tripped climbing into the cheap chair on a pedestal that was used for the pedicure. There was no "warmed multi-vitamin cream" massage or "strawberry soak". No beverages were offered, in fact no mention of the importance of drinking water after the massage.
My friends and I were completely disappointed in the experience at Spadyssey.
Best Massage in Rhode Island – Spadyssey gets 4 stars. I know a lot of people say this, but it really was the best massage that I've ever had. I had Alicia for my massage and she has the magic hands. Very thorough, detail oriented and yet at the same time very floaty and dreamy. Every minute that I spent on that massage table felt like a week that passed by.
I also had a Europa facial with Meryl who is very good and she did well with the extractions which I really like. Melanie did a great job on my manicure during which the staff surprised me with a delicious red velvet cupcake from my hubby.
Spadyssey has a friendly and well trained staff. Parking was close by and free, which is big for downtown Providence. They've been around for six years which says a lot to me. Our anniversary is coming up and I'm going to surprise my hubby with a couples massage in their couples room + plus a couple of those cupcakes.
Love, love, loved it! – I just had the most amazing massage and facial of my life. I really can't even describe the feeling that I have right now, I just hope that it never wears off. :)
The massage was spot on and detailed. I learned about knots that I never knew I had. The girl that did my facial had amazing hands and did a great job with the extractions!
Spadyssey isn’t a huge spa, but it’s a great one!
Great place for a great massage – My hubby got me a gift certificate for Christmas. It was actually for a couples massage. We loved it. I was going to wait till Valentines day to use it, but my shoulders were really aching, so we went last week.
It was the best massage that either of us had received. Ever. The place is cute... not a huge spa at all... and we loved the couples massage room.
My husband said that his massage was incredible too... not just good. I felt like i was sooo relaxed and in space or somewhere. I don't think It will be long before our next visit.
The staff seemed busy, but still friendly and attentive. )
Decieving – I'm must say I encountered a rather bitter experience at the local spa. Beautiful women, poor service sums up how I feel. I left feeling discontent, and wanting to ask for my money back. Bathroom cleanliness was also poor. I would recommend some of the other spas located in the city, honestly.
Epic Experience – My husband and I just returned from a trip to Providence to visit our daughter who is in school at Brown. She surprised us with a wonderful package to Spadyssey and without exaggeration, we had two of the best massages and facials ever.
Prior to Spadyssey, the best massage that I had ever received was at Parrot Cay. Spadyssey was better than that. I'm sitting here wondering what words I can use to describe experience without sounding effusive.
We were in Providence for just under a week and I had two massages at Spadyssey during that time. I really wanted to make sure that it was really that good and both massages were out of this world.
I get massages fairly regularly and now I'm wishing that we lived closer to Providence! My husband and I are going to return the favor to our daughter by surprising her with a gift certificate to Spadyssey for the holidays.
If you are looking for the very best in massage, your search is over.
Ok, I just had to write this. My services were soooooo good! I left feeling like I was in heaven.
I asked for the 90 minute massage, Europa facial and eyebrow threading and was in the same room for all of my services. I came in because of the great special they have for a massage and I'm very glad I did.
The massage was the most fantastic one that I've had in a long time. I've been to some of the spa's with bigger names and their massages didn't come close to spadyssey. The facial was wonderful. My face looks years younger and I feel great!! I didn't know that there was a place to get eyebrow threading in providence. I am super excited about that!
Thank you for a relaxing experience. I felt as if I was on vacation. I really, really needed a break from the world of go, go go!. The music played softly and it felt like I was falling and falling into the deepest sleep. It was over too soon. I will be returning for another visit next month with friends and I will probably pick a gift certificate for the holidays.
