Best Spa Experience Ever!!! – All of the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the products that they carry and the services they offer. I just got my third 90 minute massage this month, and each time, I left feeling awesome. I have grown to love all of the therapists...they all have different little techniques that set them apart but also make for great services. This last appointment, I also got a bikini wax and a facial, and my esthetician was so fast at the waxing that I almost didn't even feel it. Plus she did such a great job with my facial that I couldn't even remember the waxing at all. The front desk sure knows there stuff too. They helped me with all kinds of skin products and I am hooked on the Arnica Oil that they carry. I am going to get the Arnica Friction Massage next time so the therapist can professionally apply the arnica to my sore areas. I never have to worry when I go to Natural Body that I will be taken care of and they always address me by name, I'm not just another number, like we so often are these days. I highly recommend this spa and I as long as Natural Body is here, I will not be going anywhere else.
Waxing Nightmare! – OMG! I've had several bikini waxes over 10 years and this was by far the WORST bikini wax ever! I was red and swollen for 5 straight days. I couldn't even take off my shorts at the beach the entire time. The lady that did the wax never pulled my skin tight or put any pressure over the waxed area at all. I thought this was protocol. Please do not get a bikini wax here. I left a message with the manager but no return call.
This spa is terrible! I went in for a hot stone massage a couple weeks ago and had Kelly. She was dropping rocks on the floor and coughing and there was just tons of noise going on - completely NOT a relaxing massage experience. After that time, I decided to try another service on Valentine's day and get a manicure/pedicure in hopes that it would be better. It wasn't. I had Angela and she was very nice and took her time, but the quality of the manicure was terrible. By the time I got home from dinner that night, the polish had already worn away from my fingers, the white of the french manicure was messy, and there were bubbles under the polish. The next morning I took a shower and the polish on my pinky nail was completely gone! For these prices, this spa is definitely NOT worth it!
Go to La Therapie in Cary, I've never had a bad experience.
Really bad experience – First time trying out this spa and received a 90 minutes massage. It was probably the worst massage I've ever gotten in the 10+ years I've been getting massages. There really wasn't much massage going on, more like poking and squeezing. You know it's bad when you are 20 minutes in and can't wait for it to be over. Not only was the massage bad, the room was overall cold, the masseuse didn't use enough oil on his hands and you could hear the employees talking so it wasn't a quiet serene atmosphere which is what you want (and expect) out of a spa.
Needless to say that was my first and last spa treatment at Natural Body Spa.
great massage.....LOTS of construction noise – I get massages ragularly and wanted to try a new place. The website looked fabukous as did the treatment I requested. My therpaist was great, did a fantastic job. The big con.....A LOT of outside consdtruction noise. not sure if it was upstiars or next door but it was so loud it was impossible to relax fully. The other therapists were also a bit loud in the hallways. Every spa I have been to has been church quiet beyond the lobby doors- not this one, lots of chatter in the halls.
GREAT massage but not the best "spa" feel.
Nightmare Spa Experience – I came in for a massage and pedicure and after seeing the spa I thought it was going to be a wonderful experience. It is a very pretty spa however the services aren't as great. They ended up doing the pedicure first...I had to wait 45 min. after my appointment time before I was even taken back. The girl was very stressed b/c she was so late, kept leaving the room, started cleaning her tools while my nails were drying (& was supposed to be relaxing) and then she fell hitting all of my nails and had to basically start over. By the time I got up she had painted gold leaves on my big toes that I had NOT requested. Then I got to my massage...by this point I am way more stressed out then when I walked in the door. During the massage my pedicure got completely ruined. When it was done my masseuse was no where to be found. I had to walk myself up front. What's worse is when I wrote into the web site about my disappointing experience I never even got so much as an "I'm sorry". It was the worst treatment I have ever received at a spa!!
Best Massage in the triangle – 9/29/07 - 3rd visit to Natural Body Spa... Natural Body Spa and Shoppe continues to deliver consistent, top quality friendly service, an excellent deep tissue / signature massage, at a reasonable / comparative price by skilled staff, in a very relaxing atmosphere. I've been very pleased with everyone, especially David. David listens carefully to your specific needs at the onset and with his hands /skill throughout the session. I'll continue to drive past several other spas to go to Natural Body.
great service and knowledge – I was very hesitant to get a facial and was scared that it would make me breakout. I kept hearing such good things from a group of women that go to a girl at natural body and i kept asking who to go to. I went to a girl who made me feel very comfortable and i could NOT believe how great my skin looked! So, i decided to send my teenagers with acne to Heather at Natural Body and she really cleared my kids skin up.....and even my son now begs to go get facials. She went beyond our expectations and took special interest in each of our skincare needs. It was great and we will be back time and time again. I now can say that i cannot believe i did not get facials for all these years.
green spa is golden – The storefront offers a wide selection of spa products, including eco-friendly lines Jurlique (I love their products!!!) and Aveda. The spa side is elegant and quiet. I have greatly enjoyed Jurlique anti-bacterial facials, done by Shelby. I also had an excellent massage in January, but that therapist has moved out of the area.
great massages, relaxing atmosphere, convenient – My husband and I have had quite a few massages here and have been, on the whole, very pleased.
April is great if you like deep tissue; so is David. Charity is also good, especially for less deep, swedish type massage.
Everyone at the spa seems nice, atmosphere is soothing and calm, and it's not too difficult to get in when you want to.
Haven't tried other services, but I do recommend for massage.
