This place rocks! – I just wanted to post something for anyone looking for a great spa. I found this place on citysearch and I'd like to "return the favor" if I can. This place is awesome! I was late from work and they were totally able to accomodate me. Man, was I stressed out. As soon as I walked in I knew it was special here--the unique aromas, the friendly smiles and warm greetings from everyone. They even offered to make me a cup of herbal tea to "take the edge off." I felt like I was in someone's cozy living room. My therapist was so super and worked all the spots I'd mentioned were a problem. When I left I swear it was the first time I didn't have a headache in like 3 weeks! A friend of mine got a facial and a body wrap as a gift and said they were just as wonderful as the massages, so I think next time my boss makes me work a 60-hour week I’m going to book one of those along with another massage. Sounds like heaven to me!
Thanks for the Therapy! – Being out of work for the past 3½ months has me feeling crappy more times than not these days. So when my friend bought me a gift card for a spa package with the suggestion that I take a vacation from myself I took the hint. To be honest, the vacation I needed was really for my head, and was this ever the right place!
From the moment I walked in I started to feel calm. The atmosphere, muted lighting, hanging vines, amazing scents and nice people all came together to make me feel like I was in a faraway place.
As much as I enjoyed my massage and facial I really enjoyed just being invited to stay and relax after my services and talk to the staff (their listening to my ramblings about being out of work is probably more like it). Everyone here really seems to want to be here doing what they’re doing. Certainly NOT my experience in my last job. I especially enjoyed my talk at the juice bar with John about taking the opportunity to re-invent myself. It was really inspiring.
I’m not sure how soon I can schedule another massage or facial but I’ll definitely be back. Most likely I’ll be stopping by to relax in their lounge. Thanks for the therapy!
Unfortunately, I'm suffering – Ok, I have to say that the service at this spa is EXCELLENT! I got stuck in traffic, which made me 30 minutes late, but they still accommodated me and were super friendly and understanding.
The problem is that 1 day after getting a massage that was a bit strong, I can barely turn my neck. I'll have to call them and let them know.
Wonderful taste – Great atmosphere and amazing service. One thing i did also love was there was openings for me. I cant wait to go again
Philly's Awesome Place for Awesome Relaxation – This place is CHIC! In the scale of 1 to 10, I'd give it a 20! Customer service is excellent. Normally, I get really antsy spending long hours in spas but Terme Di Aroma made me feel like I never wanted to leave. The spa itself was very relaxing, the combination of the interior design, soft lighting, music made me feel at home. I love the bar they had in the waiting room full of water, juice, fresh fruits and even cookies! My thereapist was awesome! The facial I had was excellent. The front desk lady (Maria) was very helpful and knowledgeable about the products which I ended up purchasing. I will definitely make sure to refer Terme Di Aroma to all my family and friends. I already know what to get for a lot of them of Christmas (gift certificate!) I want them to have the same wonderful experience I had, and sure will continue to have. Terme Di Aroma is the place to get serious pampering!!
Best Kept Secret Spa in Philadelphia – After a few urging and coaxing from a lot of my friends, I finally gave in and made an appointment for a massage at Terme Di Aroma. I blame myself for not going right away. I didn't know what I was missing all these months! As soon as I walked in, I was impressed by the set up of the spa. It was very classy and it had immediately given me a comfortable feeling that I'm going to get my money's worth! The interior was designed tastefully, it was very obvious that the owner had invested so much to make such impression. The staff were very warm, cheerful and accommodating. Maria welcomed me with such a sweet smile that made me feel at home. The lounge room was very comfortable, quiet and relaxing. My therapist (Beth) knew exactly what I wanted done without me having to elaborate. When I was done with my massage, I looked around and checked their products. Maria was very helpful and knowledgable about the products and was very patient with every question I had. When I left the spa, I felt like a million bucks. Now I know where I need to be when it comes to pampering myself. I will be a returning customer and I am already planning on having a facial (on top of yet another out of this world massage) on my next appointment! Thank you, for treating me like a like a royalty! My experience with Terme Di Aroma is something I am looking forward to sharing with other friends and family members.
Pamper yourself at Terme Di Aroma - I did! – The ambiance was very classy and relaxing. The waiting room was very comfortable, complete with soothing music and lighting. The robe and slippers were very soft and obviously clean. I was greeted by a very friendly, yet professional staff. They made sure I was comfortable in any aspect of this special day spa treat for myself. The massage I got was more than I asked for. My therapist knew exactly where my knots were and worked on them with obvious care. The facial was very relaxing and gave my face a new meaning of "brand new me." I've never felt my face so much cleaner in a long time! After my massage and facial, the staff again made sure if I was okay or if there was anything they could get for me. After I got dressed, I walked around in the reception area to check out the different products they have in store and I have to say they have a real impressive product inventory that I wound up purchasing some. New Year's resolution: Spoil myself by making a trip to Terme Di Aroma once a month! It's worth it!
Nice place, and service - HORRIBLE FACIAL!!! – I liked the interior a lot. I went there to get relaxed and get a relaxing facial and massage. The massage was fine, but the facial - a nightmare. I had never experienced such a rough facial in my life. The person doing it was very inconsiderate in terms of being gentle and I felt almost like she is annoyed with me or something else. I couldn't wait when it was finally over, and came out with a terrible feeling of tension, instead of relaxation. I will think twice, before I go there again. There are a few other very nice spas, I had experienced a very pleasant facial in Mananyunk and in Bala Cynwyd.
Amazing Deep Tissue Massage – I had a deep tissue massage with Erin, and I can't describe the difference. My back and shoulders were a mess. It was my first deep tissue massage and I'm sure I'll be back. I haven't felt this good in a long, long time.
Excellent customer service!!! – After searching for the perfect spa, my mother and I have found a home here at Terme for almost 3 years! The services are similar to the "rittenhouse" type spa but I find Terme's speciality is in the customer service... From the welcoming smiles of the receptionists all the way to the owners- everyone makes you feel comfortable (something you can't find in an uptight pretentious spa). The facials from Jen B are ones that get noticed days after the service. The massages from Kevin are so relaxing that my mother and I choose our spa days around the days Kevin is at Terme.
I am pleased to give my recommendation to Terme for anyone looking for a great spa in the city!
