I treated my best friend for his birthday to this spa and here's how it went: a 90 minute session of massage along with a facial and some grooming from Louis was the best most relaxing experience ever. He is highly professional and will give you a few points on how to keep maintaining your skin with variety of products etc. I will recommend this place to anyone who wants to look and feel amazing about themselves, because after you walk out you're a 10!

I'm a morning person so the fact that I was able to schedule for 10:30AM on a Saturday was really a plus for me. My appointment was with Louis for a sugar waxing, esthetic skincare treatments and a body scrub massage.
Louis was easy to speak to and had a really good energy. I get waxed regularly, but this was my first time getting sugared. The results are excellent and it smelled a little like cookies while he worked with the paste. The body scrub and esthetic skincare treatments had some light massage and stretching incorporated, which I loved. Everything was so relaxing I almost fell asleep on him. Indeed, my skin is glowing from the services. I definitely recommend Louis. I look forward to coming back.

All the best, James.

Every single time I book an appointment, in my opinion, I get nothing but the most extremely professional and expert treatment in all of Manhattan. His personality is so welcoming that make me feel so at ease. I always try to book for him for sugaring and massages; he is fantastic, highly social (takes my mind off any slight pain I might encounter), excellent at his job and always a pleasure to deal with.

While I’ve been in New York for the past few of months, I booked with Louis for sugaring and massages. He was very friendly and attentive. He does a great job with sugaring and has an amazing touch with his massages. Highly recommend him for grooming and pampering!

I booked Louis for a massage and requested a body scrub as well. My meeting with Louis was very professional and pleasant. I enjoyed the massage session, he blended techniques with Swedish, Lomi Lomi and stretching; it is different than a traditional massage and I liked THIS method a lot!
The body scrub was really cool, the scrub was composed of raw sugar mixed with essential oils. After showering in the studio, my body was so soft and smooth... I was amazed by that!
We chatted briefly after that and it was all good! I definitely will schedule another massage/body scrub session with him in the near future!

I booked an appointment over the weekend. My experience with Louis was incredible and extremely rejuvenating. I would recommend him for anyone looking for a cozy, clean, and accommodating environment to pair with a thorough massage.

Because of my schedule, I usually go on the weekends to see one of my favorites, Louis (who is also one of my secret weapons when I have events or travel and need to look a little next level). I’m sure I’ve bragged about his massages in the past. I love how relaxed I can feel and how good the energy is, always. Louis has also an aesthetician now too. His facials must be experienced and his eye treatment is a particular favorite of mine. Even though he explains what he does, and I ask lots of questions because it fascinates me, I am still pretty sure he uses some secret ingredients he isn’t telling me about because my eyes are always refreshed and looking rested no matter how tired I am or how bad I have been about sleep.

Whenever I know I’ll be at an event where there will be lots of pictures, I make sure to pop in and have him give me an eyelash and eyebrow tinting. It just helps to make your eyes pop to have the color done a little because being in the sun can lighten my brows and lashes naturally but that can make them looked washed out in pictures. (I’m just giving away ALL my secrets now).

I really do believe a good massage is beneficial for more than just physical reasons. For that time, you can let your troubles melt away, and ease your anxiety. Plus, with trying to stay in some sort of shape, the gym can take its toll on our muscles and they need a little break from time to time. I do go for acupuncture treatments but nothing can get as deep into sore muscles and knots as a good massage from someone who knows what they are doing.

I take care of my skin regularly and I think pretty well but after a facial, my skin is always glowing, feels different, and looks more plump. Again, I am positive Louis uses some secret magic ingredient other than the ones I see! He also uses some light therapy that truly works wonders!

From the second I walked in I felt welcomed and was treated extremely weIl. I visited for the first time yesterday to receive a facial followed by a massage and I have to say it was absolutely outstanding.
Louis is really passionate and knowledgeable about his work, giving me a complete rundown of everything that would be happening. He did a perfect job; he made my skin look and feel awesome. The entire session was so relaxing, which is what I was looking for. I could go on and on about the service, all great things!

I received a massage, sugaring service and a body scrub from Louis and it was great! I feel so relaxed from the entire service. This was the first time ever receiving a sugaring as well, but Louis is very good at what he does. Quality service and will for sure be returning.

I’ve received massages and body scrubs from Louis, who really takes massages to another level because he has definitely mastered the art of energy work. If you are aware of energy, you will feel it for sure. I’m telling you, there are times where he just puts his hands over a spot that is troubling you and without physical contact, you FEEL the pulse of energy working through your muscles. If you’ve never experienced it, it may be hard to imagine but trust me, it is powerful. He also has this habit of infusing good energy into you all through the massage so you leave feeling extra good and ready to tackle anything. And of course, the body scrubs are so soothing, plus so good for your skin. We don’t usually pay enough attention to the skin on our body like we do to our face and hands. It feels good to let someone else do that for you. He’s also so good at answering any questions you have and since he’s a wiz with the energy, he tends to know what’s up even when you don’t remember to tell him.

Lou is a master at his craft. He provides a skilled massage that will leave you rejuvenated, relaxed and refreshed. His technical skill and knowledge of how the body works and reacts make his massages great, and always different. He continuously learns and improves his technique. If you want a legitimate massage, you’ve found the right guy.
