Worst massage ever. seriously. i am convinced the Staff are the only ones writing these positive reviews. – my best friend came up from charlotte to give me a massage for my birthday. we decided to do the couple's massage...
we were met at the door by 1 masseuse and led to a rickety dirty elevator and up to the location. she told us the dressing room was full - and led us to the waiting room - offered us drinks. came back with them and then told us the dressing room was ready and then asked us why we brought our drinks. they only had L and XL robes and S and M slippers - my friends feet were hanging out of the slippers and her robe hanging off her body. then they led us back to the waiting room and we were there less than 5 minutes before they took us to the room.
weak. that is the best way to describe it. it felt like they were Barely touching us. my friend said she kept getting the shortest strokes - like the girl would start at her elbow and stop the stroke even before she got to her wrist!!! WTF?
also Unsanitary. since the person massage my friend kept coughing on her. (afterwards, we noticed two taped gauze things on each arm - like she had just had shots... maybe it was allergies - but it's NOT the thing you want to see when someone is COUGHING on you during your MASSAGE!!!!!)
when it was over - they led us back to the waiting room - where we got to Finally drink our drinks. then 1 girl came back with a tray and said (and i quote:) 'Here are your OrganTic desserts" - my friend and i just looked at each other and said ' did she just...? wow.
about the OrganTic desserts: my friend described hers as: "a poppyseed muffin that was turned upside down and squished and spread with a dallop of glaze" if you are going to tote the organic dessert as such a selling point. know that it is ORGANIC - (no T) and make it look a Little appetizing please.
overall - i would NEVER go back there and i apologized profusely to my friend for spending $140 dollars on such a waste.
it was embarrasing.
I've never felt the need to respond to a review before, but in this instance, I feel I must. I am the spa director for Adagio and I can only say that the review was not only mean spirited and unkind, but preposterous as well. Old, historic office building, yes...dirty, no. As a consumer myself, what I can't understand is, if the experience was as bad as you say, why didn't you ask to speak with a manager? There's always one on duty. I stand behind every one of our massage therapists (they are not masseuses) They are all experienced, knowledgeable, professional and well trained. Gauze on a therapist's arms? Organ-Tic desserts? I don't think so. I will not even respond to some of the absurdities that were written, but simply thank our fabulous clientele who know they have a choice, and choose Adagio time after time. If the writer would like to discuss this issue, please call and ask to speak with me. My name is Bascha. Thank you.
Couples Massage is Best Around – I purchased a Couples Massage gift certificate for our Anniversary..... We were expecting to walk-in, lay next to each other, get a massage, and then leave.
Boy, were our expectations greatly surpassed!
We were greeted at the door by one of our massage therapists- led upstairs into a quiet candlelite room with a couch in it. They brought us wine and whatever else we liked to drink.....This allowed us to relax and get in the moment. - The therapists then came in the room after about 10 minutes or so, to learn about what massage techniques will suit us best. - We were ushered back into the massage room to find it candlelite as well, with rose petals everywhere! They gave us time to get undressed and speak to each other for awhile while just laying there. - Our 90 minute massage passed so quickly. Afterwards, they served more wine and served us dessert! We will absolutely come back to this place for our next massages!!!! They were EXCELLENT!!
Oh, and after reading some of the other reviews, I was initially worried that our massage therapists were going to talk during our massages- I asked them about that, and they said that they respond to the client- if the client is there talking, they respond back. If the client is quiet & relaxed, so it the massage therapists!
Great Service, Visually Lacking – I went to Adagio for the first time last week and had a very nice experience. I scheduled a Swedish massage, one hour, and requested a male therapist. Adagio is located in a convenient part of town, but located in a strange building (Young Executives) on the second floor. I had to call upstairs for someone to come down and let me inside the building (it was a Saturday) and then walked up the stairs to find it was located in an office building with several other businesses on the same floor.
Once inside, the attendants were very kind and professional, taking me to the dressing room. I changed into a nice, fluffy robe and locked my belongings in a personal locker. The accommodations were nice, but not overly spectacular or interesting. For the most part it was an office area with minimal decor.
But the service made up for it. I had a complimentary mimosa (tasty) and relaxed in the sub-par holding room. The chairs could have been a little more comfortable and the mood a little more relaxing, but still nice. I got a female therapist, even though I asked for a male, but it didn't really bother me. She was wonderful. She really concentrated on any area that I asked, and could be as deep or light pressured.
I have been to some very nice spas, and therefore may be judging Adagio too harshly. It was a lovely experience, and I would return. Moderately priced, great service, great massage.
Amazing – I was a little 'underwhelmed' when I got to the building on Division Street. I'd received a gift certificate from a friend, and Adagio was not the place I usually go, but I had the certificate, so I thought I'd give it a try. The spa is on the second floor, and when I walked in, I was just amazed. The place smellls like fresh flowers. It's not too bright, and not too dim. I've found that some spas are so dark, almost like they're trying to hide something. The receptionist was professional, yet very cordial. I was taken to a changing room where I was given a robe and some very cool spa shoes. After changing, I was ushered to a room where classical music was playing, the lighting was just right and again, these amazing fresh flowers. I was offered a beverage. I chose apple juice, although the choice of wine and champagne was enticing. My therapist, Taylor came to get me from the room and took me into a really nice, very clean massage room. Wow!! What a massage. He's very, very strong, although he didn't hurt me at all. He was very good at judging what I needed. The massage was wonderful, and when it was over, I went back into the sitting room, where I was given some melon and berries, a really good heart shaped fruit filled cookie, and some water with lemon. I think I sat there for about 20 minutes before finding the energy to go back to the changing room and finally to leave. When I left, there was a different receptionist who was equally nice and professional. All in all, just a wonderful experience.
Magnificent Relaxing Experience! – Lately , I have had trouble with my skin breaking out, acne, and blemishes. I set up an appointment at Adagio with their aesthetician. I came in with my own procedure in mine, but after my consultation I was sold and truly trusted her suggestion. The facial and peel she recommended was cheaper than the one I originally had in mine. This showed me she honestly wanted to do what was best for my skin type. During the procedure she explained to me my paticular skin problems and what causes them. She then recommended products from the local Walgreens that would help me. In the past I have gone to spas only to be sold on their expensive products and procedures not what is necessarily good for my skin. Adagio was nothing like this. The staff their went out of their way to make sure my experience was the unforgettable. It was relaxing, informing, and rejuvenating.Adagio your goal was accomplished. It was a Magnificent Experience! I will definitely be back!
Stay away!!!! – This was overrated. I actually went here b/c of reviews on this website. I checked out the spa's website, and all the treatments I chose were listed as "about an hour." However, only one of the three actually lasted an hour. My massage therapist talked to me the entire time, as did the person giving me the salt scrub. When asked why I chose the salt scrub, the therapist said "It isn't very relaxing..." The shower was TINY where I was asked to shower after the scrub and there were no hooks anywhere to hang my towels or robe (they had just remodeled, but wouldn't that be on a priority list?) I also had a facial. Originally I booked the least expensive, but they were out of something so I was "upgraded." It consisted of rubbing something on my face for a few minutes, setting a mask for about 10 - 15 minutes while the aesthetician rubbed my neck, scalp and arms - and lets just say she was NOT a massage therapist. Then the mask was peeled, toner sprayed on my face and I was on my way. All for the price of $85 ($105 value). I would never recommend this spa or ever go back there. The only good thing I have to say is they were on time and friendly ? but that doesn?t make up for a lack of relaxation and good services! They boast that clients are not hurried, you can relax in relaxation rooms, etc. - but my afternoon at the spa took two hours and 40 minutes for three services - and cost $235 plus tips.
Yummy – I live in New York City, so most of the spas I've been to have been enormous and brightly-lit, and even a little bit dingy inside, with people clamoring to sell their products. Not so at Adagio. When I walked in, I was in a lovely softly-lit room scattered with flower arrangements, and greeted by my therapist, Alicia, who was attentive and incredibly strong. After my 90 minutes were up (too quickly), she told me to take my time getting up, and she meant it. I was treated to a glass of water and fruit and cookies in the relaxation room after my massage, and no one asked me to buy a single thing. Best massage and spa experience I've had.
Adagio Massage & Spa – I cannot say enough GREAT things about Adagio!
Professional, educated, skilled, personable, attentive,
compassionate, and FUN!
There is no better place in all of Tenn to get a massage!
You will feel as if you've died and gone to heaven!
I guess that makes Bascha an angel then. ;)
Adagio is what all Great Spas should aspire to be!
Skin care experience – As a man I always thought that facials were not for me. Let me tell you that Adagio showed me how wrong I was. Debora is a combination of experience and a warm soothing touch that really took all of my stress away. Not only did I receive a wonderful facial but she also gave me a list of things that I should do to keep my skin healthy. Needless to say Adagio's massages are absolutely amazing and now that I know of their awesome skin care I will be doubling my visits. Men, if you are looking for a real stress reliever try Agadio's skin care center. You will come away feeling calm and relaxed. Thanks Adagio
Awesome Experience – I have traveled to get massages outside of Nashville. The experience at Adagio's was truly awesome....I was met at the door by my massage therapist and ushered into a room where the mood was set to relaxing. I was truly pampered on that day what a way to celebrate your birthday and they did not even know.
