Just what the proverbial doctor ordered – Due to overwhelmingly positive reviews expressed on this website, as well as dissatisfaction with the spa that I had previously frequented, I decided to try Adagio's. I cannot adequately convey just how accurate the consensus is with respect to the quality of services provided at this facility. My massage therapist was Alicia. By her own admission, Alicia's style is not for everybody. If you are looking for a sedate, Swedish massage, you may not consider Alicia's invigorating approach to be your "cup of tea." As a bodybuilder, however, I found her depth and intensity, not to mention her emphasis on sports massage, to be more directly germane to my needs than the skills of any previous therapist. Because of her pace, she also gets more accomplished in less time than any therapist I have worked with. It is, admittedly, a disservice to reduce the benefits of therapeutic massage to dollars and cents, but you simply will never receive a better "return on your investment" than time spent in Alicia's capable hands.
Best Massage Ever - Ask for Kathleen – I was in town producing a record for a while. On the day I arrived I blew my back out. After seeing a Chiropractor almost immediately I had lots of soreness and pain. I went to Adagio because of its convenient location and reviews. I went three times during the week to try to minimize my pain and discomfort. It got better by leaps and bounds every time I went.
Alicia was the therapist for the first two visits and did a great job. Kathleen was the therapist for the last visit and was amazing. Her attention to detail was superb. She found the problems and just did away with them. I strongly advise to use Kathleen to cure any discomfort, or to just truly relax. Worth every penny.
I just wish I could have her work in L.A.! Truly the best!
Without Doubt My Favorite Spa In Nashville – The atmosphere is lovely, understated and relaxing, but really, here, it's all about the therapists. And it's so professional. I feel like when I'm here, my therapist actually wants to be working on me. And they work on what I ask them to, not just your 60 minute do the same thing every time massage. I've worked with Shelby, Shannon and Trey and they've all been wonderful. Yes, the building's a bit of a turnoff, but once you walk into Adagio's door, it's really nice. And who cares once you're in there anyway. Really good place!
Eyebrow sculpting is GREAT – Again, not to belabor the point--but the building is old and it is hard to get into if your appointment is scheduled after 5pm. Not to worry though, someone will be down to get you. I go here to get my eyebrows waxed. And it's one of the best in town (I don't trust my brows to just anyone). The staff is always very professional and friendly. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the smells (yes the smells) are great. HIGHLY recommended.
Just what I needed! A little heaven in an old office building – Just had a couple's massage at Adagio. After reading some other reviews, I felt compelled to weigh in. Yes, as everyone says, the location is a bit disarming. Getting into the building was a bit difficult as it is locked to the public. Once in, it reminded me of an old Doctors office building, but it was very clean, just outdated. We took the elevator up to the second floor and entered Adagio. Upon a lovely greeting, we were guided to a small but adequate changing room where we were given robes and sandals and a lockbox for our belongings. In the relaxation room, we were offered a menu of drinks but chose lemon water. Once we had 'relaxed' we were brought into the massage room where our therapists told us all the 'need to knows'. We had a 90 minute massage that was professional in every respect. I have a friend who is a CMT/PT and occasionally gives me a complimentary massage. I recognized some of her technique in Adagio's. The experience was soothing and wonderful. After the massage, we were treated to some more lemon water, chocolate brownie bites and fresh fruit. Not rushed out and allowed to relax at our leisure. All in all it was a wonderful experience. Kudos!!
GREAT couples massage! – My friend and I read the hilarious reviews about the building in which the salon is located and thought, "Glad this couples massage was a gift!" We received a couples massage at 10am on a Saturday. The building was not the most aesthetically pleasing, but we were prepared. We sat outside for a few minutes until one of the spa staff came to get us. We were escorted onto an old elevator, in an old building. When we entered the spa it had soft lighting and the staff was professional and friendly. We were taken to a changing room that was FREEZING! The restroom was just outside of the changing room, it was very small and again OLD, but had nice touches with cloth towels and nice handsoap! We were asked to step outside when we were changed and then guided to a private couples-only "relaxation room." We were offered mimosas, bellinis, white or red wine. We both chose mimosa's that were served with a slice of strawberry in it - Nice Touch!
The couple's massage room was right off of the relaxation room so it was a short walk. Now for the massages - They Were Awesome! The BEST massage I have ever had and I have had several! Definitely do 90 minutes! The massage tables were warmed, the lighting in the room was perfect! Our therapists (Amber and Deirdra) were very professional and VERY thorough! If you want to feel really good after a massage - This is the place to go!
I can't say for sure, but I think they were a little uncomfortable about it being 2 girls for the couples massage, this was a little disappointing. Also, since the "relaxation room" was attached to the treatment room, we had very little time to sit in there after the massage before people were coming through the room to get to the treatment room. They had all the lights turned on and were changing the linens for the next massage. This seemed rude and like we were being rushed out! Overall the massage was Great! They could improve on some of the small touches that would make the entire experience better.
Top spa experience!! – The staff was very professional and the massage I received was top notch! I have been to spas around the world and this was really right at the top! My friend and I had Alicia and Jen who were both amazing. I highly recommend Adagio!!
Not a soccer mom spa – I received a gift card for my birthday and came to Adagio last week. After reading all the reviews I wasn't sure what to think, but decided that good or bad, I'd write a review with my take on the place. The reviews are true. Not a great building, but once you walk into Adagios door it's really lovely. Flowers in the front room and the sitting area. Nice! Given what they probably started with, I'd say the decor was really comfortable. Not your suburban la-dee-da type place. Very contemporary and linear, but warm. My therapist was Deirdra, and I have to say it was the best massage I've ever had. Ever! She's amazing. I was achey when i went in, and without being roughed up, she was able to get to all the pain points. It was evident to me that she was a very experienced massuese. I did have a glass of champagne before, and a cookie and fruit after, which was a nice touch, but truly, I came for the massage, and that's what i got. The staff was very professional, nice robes, etc. Just an all around good experience. If you're looking for more glamour, this may not be the place for you. For a fantastic massage in a clean facility with nice touches everywhere, I'd say this is a great bet.
Great Massage, Poor Atmosphere Food & Drink – The spa wasn't in a great location - off Division Street near Music Row. You wouldn't expect a spa to be there. The ceilings were a bit low and you could tell they had done their best to convert it into a spa atmosphere; low lighting, chill-music and candles everywhere.
We were directed to the 'Relaxation Room'. There, they offered us drinks. We chose wine - a white and a merlot. My wife commented that her wine tasted like "throw-up". I tried it and it was okay, but it wasn't good. Mine was a little bit better.
We were quickly escorted into the couple's spa room. The atmosphere and mood in the room was nice. My therapist did a fantastic job. She seemed to have more experience than the other, younger one. Mine focused on areas I pointed out were sore. She did a particularly good job under my shoulders - pressing on specific areas for an extended period of time. WOW - did it hurt, but it hurt so good! She also worked on specific areas I pointed out needed some extra attention.
After our massage was over, we were escorted back into the 'Relaxation Room' where we were served a small dessert with strawberries and water. The pastry was pretty hard. My wife's pastry actually went flying off her plate when she tried to cut a piece off with the spoon they gave us. We were told these were fresh-baked. They may have been at one time, but not when we ate them.
All in all, for the price ($70 per person), I would rate Adagio on Division Street average. The massage was good. The rest of the visit was below average - we could have done with better wine, better desserts, better atmosphere and friendlier massage therapists.
We both agreed we would not go back.
I told my man I didn't want roses for Valentine's Day.... he got me a lil piece of Heaven on Earth! – We called an made reservations to have a couple's massage. We had a small problem finding it at first. HINT:Don't park out front. There is AMPLE parking on the side but if not looking you won't see it. We headed inside; the therapists were waiting on the steps for us. They guided us upstairs. She told us before we entered that they were remodeling so "bear with us." We stepped into the lobby and it was like stepping into a totally different building. She made small talk as she led us to the changing room. She gave us instructions, left us to undress and lock away our belongings. After we changed, we made our way into the sitting room where they asked us what we would like to drink: Organic juices, wine, or champagne. They left us there for a few minutes to talk. The massage therapists came in and led us to the room were we would get our massages. It was a cozy small room (but not tiny) with two heated massage tables. They gave us their names and told us which table each one would be at. You just choose the table you want when they leave the room. They told us to disrobe and lie face down on the table and cover with a sheet. They left the room while we got situated. They ask what areas you want focus on.. if any and also tell you that if it is too hard or too soft let them know and the can adjust the pressure to your liking. They work your whole back side: back, neck, arms, legs, and feet. It seemed as time flew by after about 60 mins she whispered it was time to flip, she held up the sheet and I flipped to my back. She spent 30 mins on my face, scalp, legs, & arms. She even massage my ear lobes! After we were done, they left the room and when you re-robe you go back into the sitting room and the brought in a fresh fruit salad, pastry, and H20. They leave you to finish up and you go back and dress when you're ready. All in all: We paid $200 (plus tip) for two 90 minute massages and felt as if we got the better deal. We will be back. Mother's Day is coming up! (Hint)
