Rush over to La Casa Day Spa! – I had the good fortune to be given a gift certificate to La Casa. And I spent the most enjoyable day there I have had in months. From the moment I walked in, I knew the place was special. The décor made the front room (very spacious) seem like I was outside – in the tropics I suppose (as I understand the mother spa is in the Puerto Rican rain forest). I had come for a float and a colonic. The float was an experience like nothing I have had before. I floated atop water in a room that was the size of a walk-in closet. I was peaceful and energized all at the same time. I came out feeling utterly revitalized – mind clear as a bell. The owner of the spa, Dr. Jane Goldberg, says she tries to float every week – and attributes how fantastic she feels (and believe me – she LOOKs great – at 64, she looks 50) – in part to the anti-aging effect of the anti-gravity phenomenon of the float room. And by the way, she spent about a half hour with me after my therapies just chatting – gave me a free demo of a pulsed magnetic machine – which lightened my load so much that I felt I might waft away into the stratosphere. Then – onward ho to the colonic. Well – can you say a colonic is lovely? This one was quite lovely. Therapist seemed to know instinctively exactly what my body wanted in terms of in-flow and out-flow – gently massaged my legs and abdomen – made me feel like Queen for a Day. Want to feel like Queen for a Day? Go to La Casa Day Spa.
Best Spa in New York – La Casa Day Spa shouldn’t even be called a day spa. It is so much more. It is a true healing center with true healing therapies. I went in unable to even walk without limping – I couldn’t bend my leg at my knee at all. I met the owner – Jane Goldberg – and she told me – with absolute conviction – no doubt at all in her voice – that she could help me – and that she could help me quickly. She put me on 2 machines that seemed very Star-Trekish - she said one was a Russian device (called the Cem Tech) –and explained how far ahead of us the Russians are in doing energetic medicine. The other machine was bigger and apparently used magnetic energy (called the pulsed magnetic machine). After both treatments she made me walk around – and voila – no pain, I was walking bending my knee. Truly – nothing short of miraculous. She sent me out with a little disc that she told me to wear – and then told me to come back the next day to get it revitalized. I did all of the above – and – I have to say – I have never had an experience like this before. A painful inflammation in my knee – gone in a poff. The treatments took altogether 30 minutes. I am god as new. Really - I don’t understand it – but La Casa Day Spa is my new home. Also – the ambiance is quite wonderful. You do not know you are in NYC while you’re there. The sounds, scents, plants, furniture – all designed to give you a feeling of being in a tropical garden – and you do. Best healing experience I have had since I moved to NY from Israel.
Won't Go Back – This place is in my neighborhood so I went in for a Swedish Massage. My masseuse was good, she was nice and firm. But Too Bad I won't go back because when I got there the guy at the reception wasn't very nice. Later while I was in the waiting room I was in this part that was kind of behind some screens so I couldn't see him, but I could hear him talking on the phone and also to some of the people I think who work there. He had a nasty loud way and then didn't even look up or smile when I went to pay. My massage was good but I was glad to leave because the vibe was just bad and not even professional. I wouldn't go here myself again or tell a friend to go either.
Greatest Colonic with Cher – I've had mulitple colonics with Cher and she's very gifted. She gives the best stomach massage during the treatment to help faciliate a great release. I feel comfortable and relaxed with her and her knowledge of the digestive track is impressive. She has yrs of experience, which is what I want with this kind of delicate treatment. AND the colonic room is CLEAN which is important. I've had colonics elsewhere and Cher is the best.
Sharon Stone, Rockstar for your Bumm – I read about colonic's after wanting to loose a lot of weight and was referred to Sharon Stone from a friend. I was impressed with her determination to help me take steps to do it the right way. Her knowledge was so realistic and helpful that i was able to loose weight with out starving myself. The support that she provided was better than the Doctor I went to see. Now Im a much skinner healthier me.
Complete Relaxation!! – Both my daughter and I have visited this spa for services several times over the past few years and we have never been disappointed. We have consistently walked into the spa and immediately felt like we were in the tropics. We have always been greeted warmly and made to feel comfortable and at home with some herbal tea. Greg the manager and staff have always been flexible and eager to accommodate and please.
I have felt the stress immediately leave my body when I walk through the door. We have both experienced several different massage therapists and they have all been terrific!!
Dr. Jane Goldberg the owner does extensive research and is always adding cutting edge treatments. I recently tried the pedi-detox and was amazed to see all the toxins that were released.
Try this spa you will not be disappointed and you can feel comfortable knowing that all the treatments are well researched, have great benefits and totally reduce stress.
World Class Colon Therapist SHARON STONE! – The Most professional, understanding, informative Colon Therapist in the World is Sharon Stone. After a quite embarrassing situation, I was greeted with a Fantastic Colonic and real holistic knowledge that has changed every aspect of my life. Special doesn't say enough about this woman's unselfish drive to help people to get back into proper health, with all the support and love of a family member. Thank you, for all the comfort I can now live my life to its full potential as I hope you will as well!
best day since I moved to NYC – We went together for the Day of Detox. I am trying to quit smoking - and decided that a good detox might help. From the first phone contact we made with the spa, we were expertly advised on what treatments would be best. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the spa. It is filled with plants - and has a nice relaxing out-doorsey feel to it - a welcome relief to the urban-ness of NYC. My friend and I passed each other perdiocally - as we moved around - from therapy to therapy. then we re-met in the reception room to do what they call the pedi-detox -- which is a detox through the pores of the feet. now that was kind of scarey. by the time I was finished with that treatment, the water my feet was immersed in was almost totally black. My friend's water was much lighter. they explained to me that the darkness of my water indicated a lot of toxicity (well -duh - I am a smoker). OK - if that isn't compelling evidence that I need to quit smoking, I don't know what will be. the whole day was really quite wonderful. I loved the therapists I had. loved the staff. mind you - this is not a spa for everyone - it is not glitzy and glittery and definitely not corporate. if you want fancy with stainless steel and monochromatic colors, go to another spa. but if you want great service, profound therapies, a real sense of doing something amazing for yourself - then go to La Casa Day Spa.
best miracle place for healing in NYC – I went with my friend. it was a random choice. we signed up for the Day of Detox - and detox is exactly what we did. what amazing detox therapies we had. half the time, we weren't even sure what we were doing - at least in the beginning - until the various staff people explained - why what we were doing was going to work - and the real scienfitic principles and research behind all the therapies. Apparently the owner - Dr. Jane Goldberg - is a research freak - and has thoroughly researched all aspects of holistic healing. The spa reflects her knowledge and expertise. I have become a true believer. I felt lighter, almost weighless when I walked out the doors. Have decided to make this a regular part of my health maintenance routine. the spa itself looked like a graden -and had a lovely ambiance to it.
Outdated dÃ©cor & Dirty!! – When I first walked in the place smelled like am old mom & pops place, however my boyfriend and I brushed that off! We were there for colonics and floats, I went first to do my float, one, they ask you to use sponges that a million other people use...of course I did not! Second, the float area looked very rusty around certain areas and the water was cold & looked like it wasn't changed at all! Third, my boyfriend waited for his colonic by reception where a ups guy, and other people came in...he had on just a robe!! Everything seemed very unclean to me, I wish we listened to some of the reviews for I now have a rash on my arm. Please DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!
I am the owner of La Casa Day Spa. Our float water is maintained consistently at 96 degrees, the same temperature as human skin, & automatically regulated. The water is filtrated & ozonated, both highly effective methods of water purification. Sponges of any type are not offered. Rather, bath fluffs, sterilized after each use, are available. A rash anywhere on the body indicates toxicity in the body and should be addressed through detoxification therapies.
