Great deep tissue massage! – This was my first time visiting a spa in Philly so I was a little bit hesitant to even booking the appointment. My massage therapist, Leonia, was amazing. It was one of the best deep tissue massages that I ever received. The receptionist was extremely warm and professional.
Pros: Amazingly powerful and relaxing massage. The massage therapist applied the right amount of pressure where needed, and took her time to tend to every problem area. She was also very pleasant.
Cons: Too much sunlight in the room. I felt like I was in someones bedroom instead of a spa. They are recently moved to a new location and I believe that they are still working on the decor.
They have great specials on their website. I definitely will return again!
Good Service! – Well it was my birthday when I went to this spa today. My husband booked a deep tissue massage for me. One I greatly needed being a mom of a youngster and a part time student. The massage was excellent! The girl was great and asked just what you needed. I loved the comfort and warmth the hot towels between massage rotations! Good work guys. Look forward to coming back.
Pure Hell....not BLISS – My original appointment was October 17th at 5:00. I bought my friend a gift card for her birthday and decided to come in with her. We were booked for Manual Microderm facials. We arrived at 4:50 and my friend was called back to get her facial at 5:10, I was told that LORENZO would be doing my facial and would be with me shortly. I sat in the waiting room until 5:36 and at that time Lorenzo came and told me he was giving me a complimentary massage for my wait which turned out to be a giant egg that you lay in and it vibrates. After I laid in the egg thing for a half hour I was then told by a different massage therapist that I was getting yet another massage (by a person) because of the wait. I declined because it was now 6:06 and we had dinner reservations at 6:30 and I didn’t want my friend to sit and wait on me while I got another massage for a half hour then an hour long facial. Lorenzo then told me that I could come back the following Saturday to get the facial that I paid for and he would personally give me a massage.
Second visit I came in at 1:00 for my facial, I sat in the waiting room for 20 minutes (Déjà vu) then was told to come on back for my facial. The esthetician was very nice and I began to think that maybe I misjudged the place. We talked about my skin problems and she then began to give me a facial. I never had a manual microderm before but something felt really odd there were a lot of creams and no microderm stimulation. As she was finishing she asked me how did I like the facial. I responded “what kind of facial was that” she replied “anti-aging” WOW that blew my mind. On my second try they gave me the WRONG facial. I was LIVID at this point. I asked for Lorenzo the guy who made my appointment and was supposed to give me a massage and I was told that he was out of town. So not only did I get the wrong facial but the manager who was supposed to give me a massage for my inconvenience was not even there. I walked out of the spa with a greasy face, no massage and no one to complain to. It was awful and if you can help it stay away from there.
Simply Marvelous-] – I had an awesome experience at this spa. The ambiance is perfect. The aroma is breathtaking. The music is mesmerizing. The staff are pleasant and extremely accommodating. The owner is hands on and very knowledgeable. You must try Pure Bliss. And Lorenzo does THE BEST MASSAGES his hands are magical. Did I mention the services are affordable. You get the downtown experience without the downtown prices.. SIMPLY MARVELOUS
Ecellence!!!!!! – There aren't many places in the heart of Center City where you can receive an uncompromising massage, but you can at Pure Bliss Spa. Lorenzo is a truly distinctive addition to what is a DR. and a massage therapist joined together, rather tan a masseuse. You can glimpse a bit of massage magic, through, as your body and mind circumvent in pure relaxation. As the atmosphere whisk you away, and Lorenzo treatments are at the peak of professionalism and good value. For the truly indulgent and new spa goers will love the TLC..
Absolutely Awesome!!1 – The Pure Bliss Spa and Wellness center is just that "PURE BLISS" From walking in the door the quiet, calm atmosphere was a absolute delight.. I experienced a Deep tissue massage, confidently given by a "master" surprisingly humble therapist Lorenzo, was excellent. He employed slow, firm strokes that released knots in my lower back and shoulder I had learned to ignore(almost). He asked (without being intrusive) if I was comfortable. The room surrounding quiet was more than sufficient to "make the world go away". I really loved the treatment it helped me feel better and more integrated.. I didn't want it to end.. My experience at pure bliss was absolutely amazing.. I highly Recommend there services... looking forward to my next visit.:}
A Gem On Walnut St – I decided to take advantage of the spa week promotion, and was pleasantly surprised. I would consider PureBliss to be a gem on Walnut St. I got a facial and massage and facial and i left feeling like a million bucks!!! I bought gift certificates for my friends too!
Traumatizing experience!! – I decided to take advantage of the spa week promotions and check out this spa. The reviews were mixed, but I thought it was worth a try.
The facial was awkward- it seemed as though the woman was just making it up as she went along. It basically felt like having my face washed for an hour-- The spa week had advertised a "60 Min Manual Dermabrasion Facial "-- so I guess that was it. It just felt like a waste of time and money.
The "60 Min Body Essentials Head, Neck and Shoulder Massage with Deep Moisturizing Hand and Foot Reflexology" was the traumatic part. I was cracked, twisted, and basically punched repeatedly-- when I complained of pain, nothing changed. Not to mention, the girl complained about her occupation and her financial problems throughout-- her cell phone also went off during the session. It was only about 45 minutes, but I don't think I could have handled another minute. I actually have bruises today!!
no wellness, no spa – last review right on. this place sold many years ago and should be condemned by the city and its criminal owner! DONT even walk in the place...........its insane to read the beautiful comments about Lorenzo......the owner, the Dr without a license, not a therapist. He writes them himself. The place is filthy, massage therapists are not licensed . There are no esteticians, beauty products or lines of quality. GO anywhere but here! There are real spas all over and real legitimate owners that care!!!
sketchy – not clean, uncomfortable feeling, just couldn't wait to get out
