Best message ever – I have visited Eviama for message 3 times. I work on my feet & have a very stressfull job I carry it all in my shoulders. So I first has the message done by the feet it was great. So i returnened again andhad the Cranio Sacral massage by the time it was over I was still waiting for it to begin. Months later I was desperate and called them again. This time I got The Myofacial deep tissue message.A woman named Emily was my messuse Honestly ot was the best message i've ever had no one has ever been able to get so deep into my knots. I have been getting message for years. This was worth every cent!
Life-changing – Made an appointment based on other reviews, and was a little skeptical after a bad experience elsewhere. The moment Penny looked at me, she knew why I was there and what I needed. I had a Reiki treatment along with a massage and eyebrow waxing. I've been to a lot of spas and salons in this city, but I've never walked out visibly looking like a new person. My confidence has been soaring, my face is blemish-free and in the best shape of my life, and I can't wait for my next appointment.
Best of Everything! – I love Eviama. The atmosphere is so relaxing and the people are so friendly and warm. The treatments are fabulous. I have been a client since they opened and have had every treatment they offer. I have never been disappointed. You have to go there if you want to be truly pampered.
Cure for those dark Philly days – Okay, "color therapy" sounds loopy and a litte weird, but it works! I have suffered for decades from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) that renders me a cranky arthritic shadow of myself by Thanksgiving. I usually "deal with it" through March. Hoping to ease some of the joint pain, I booked a custom herbal wrap. Penny also suggested the facial color mask, something I'd never heard of, and we added it to the wrap treatment. Ananda explained the principles of color and their physical effects during the treatment. Using the colors reflected in the rainbow, Ananda applied light to reflexive zones on my skin and I was able to feel a difference almost immediately. After the first peaceful night's sleep in weeks, I bounced out of bed the next morning as if it were the first day of spring! I've been back every week since for the color mask, and I recommend any one of Eviama's wonderful therapists. For anyone who suffers from seasonal anxiety and depression - or has had enough of the dark days of winter here in Philly - make Eviama's facial color mask a part of your weekly routine!
excellent deep tissue massage – I found the other reviews of Enviama pretty spot on - it's a great find in philly - but I think it's important to know in advance that the waiting area is really a little store that is used as a pass through area. Maybe because I was there around the holidays and they were busier than usual, but this is not the type of relaxing spa spot that I would usually prefer. Sure, they made me a cup of tea, but I couldn't really sit and enjoy it because people were bustling around me shopping. The treatment room is located right next to this busy area and I could hear people talking and conducting transactions throughout my massage. That being said - there are times when you want to go and really relax and then there are times that you want the best possible treatment. Ananda is a great massage therapist and gave one of the best deep tissue massages I've ever had. She was really warm and considerate and willing to taylor the experience to exactly what I needed.
A Perfect Experience – Today I had a facial for the second time at Eviama, this time with Penny. I really can't say enough good things. The products they use are just great... they feel good, smell delicious, not unbearably expensive if you decide to buy some for home use (which I did). I've had two facials there from two different practitioners and both were consistently of high quality. Penny sat and talked with me first, made me feel very comfortable, relaxed. The vibe in the entire place is very cool. I really can't wait to try some of the other treatments. I've been to several day spas in Philly for facials, massage, etc. and can honestly say that I've never left one feeling as satisfied, relaxed and "high" as I felt today when I walked out of Eviama.
*The* place to get waxed. – This snob-free but professional (read: capable) environment left me feeling relaxed just by stepping inside. Knowing that their hearts & minds are in the right place (fair-trade, environmentally friendly) is a breath of fresh air. The bikini waxing i recieved was thorough and expertley executed (minimally painfull) without the usual bikini waxing awkwardness*. Worth the time and money, pay a visit and you'll thank yourself immediately; i already plan on going back for my first facial.
* note: the waxing service here out-did the one i encountered at body restorations.
Amazing facial – I had a facial with Carla early this week, it had been about 6 months since my last one and I was really needing some help. My skin had been breaking out and looking really dull despite my home regimen.
The facial featured Dr Hauschka products, a line I had never really used before. Carla explained the products origin and the whole philosophy behind the brand ( biodynamic,organic, all natural, from Germany) and was kind enough to answer all my questions thoroughly and professionally. The products themselves felt good on my face and where fragrant without being overpowering, heavy,or greasy. Nice touches like heated booties and a warm water cushion helped keep me toasty warm and cozy while I got pampered.
Carla soothed my feelings of self consciousness about my skin and showed me a few products that could help my more problematic areas. Rather than being pressured to invest in a whole new product line I was given a few samples to integrate into my daily ritual and encouraged to call back with any questions or concerns I might have. Its been four days since my facial and my skin is still clear and smooth. I would highly recommend seeing Carla and trying out the Hauschka product line- the lip stuff was pretty amazing on my chapped lips i'm defintly headed back for more of that stuff!
Eviama Life Spa – This spa is perfect.- peaceful, calm, cool. the people are wonderful- no attitude! What a shock. And the treatments are really, really wonderful. I've had facials everyone in the city and Eviama's is the best. I can't wait to go back.
Spa that makes you say AHhhhhhhhhh. – This place is amazing. I had a bicycle accident the day before and was in a serious state of discomfort. I had been roaming the city looking for any place that had a last mintute appointment on a Saturday afternoon. From the moment I entered there was a distinct difference between them and the other spas I had been hurriedly shuffled out of. I was warmly greeted, booked with an appointment on the spot and promptly offered a seat and hot tea in the retail lounge area. A few minutes later I was led to the" library " for some reading materials and offer some bach's flower remedy to help ease my discomfort.. My massage therapist Johanna was prompt, sweet, personable, and amazingly talented. The oils for my massage where custom blended and organic, tailored specifically for my needs. The massage stopped time. The enviornment is natural and cozy- the products are natural, and eco friendly, the approach is holistic, this is not your average spa machine, This is THE a place to have a quiet ritual and truly unwind.
