DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THE NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT!!!
It does not work. I went through the process, taking pictures at home before and after each procedure. The results lasted for about 3-4 days, that's why they want you to do them so close together. After all the procedures were done, I compared all my pictures to each other and there was not one difference. All that money down the drain.
WORST MASSAGE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Hello!
I am sorry to be negative, but my biyfriend and I visited your spa for the first time on 12/4/11 at 4:45PM for "deep tissue couples massages." We confirmed with the staff that our massages were to be "deep tissue." This was clearly not the case during the massage. We asked the massage therapists to put MORE pressure on us as we are both athletes and our jobs are extremely taxing on our bodies. After mentioning that we would like more pressure we still received the same poor service. I just moved here from the Poconos(Pennsylvania) and get massages ever 2-3 months. I was hopeful to find a great place to continue my massages upon my move. This was clearly not the place. Thank you for your time and patience in reading!
Wonderful massages! – I have back and hip pain pretty often and have gotten massages at a variety of places around Boston, and I must say Southwest day Spa has really stood out in making me feel better. In particular, after half a dozen massages with Mia I can sincerely say she was way ahead of my orthopedist and podiatrist in recognizing and pointing out some of the sources of my muscle aches and in alleviating them. She doesn't just follow a standard protocol for every massage, but really pays attention to where your tension is coming from on that particular day. She's very good at doing specific and targeted work - no two treatments I've gotten from her have been identical, but all of them have made me walk out of there with better posture, feeling about 10 times more relaxed than when I came in!
In terms of customer service, everyone I've interacted with has been very professional and friendly and helped me start relaxing even as I wait for my treatment. The waiting-room tea is rather good, and I always leave feeling well hydrated and well-cared for. Although I've never gotten a ridiculous discount there, SWDS's prices are all reasonable, there are some discounts for packages or repeat services, and the one time my appointment got canceled (due to to circumstances beyond anyone's control) I got a very nice voucher towards my next treatment. They take walk-ins, and I've had an easy time booking appointments whether it's days or just hours in advance.
This is definitely a place to which I'll keep returning as long as I live in Boston. Their holistic approach has made me feel wonderful every time I visit, and is actually starting to show long-term benefits for my health/well-being too.
Amazing Results! Microdermabrasion and Waxing – I've been going to Southwest Day Spa for the past two years to get my Brazilian wax done. Levina treats me wonderfully everytime and consistently makes me feel relaxed during what could be an uncomfortable situation. The wax is quick, clean, and done with relatively little pain.
As I've continued to see Levina, she's recently suggested a combination microdermabrasion and laser treatment for my face. The past few months I've been experiencing horrible breakouts, and they've been leaving red marks on my skin - leaving me feeling quite self-conscious.
In only three microdermabrasion sessions, and two laser treatments, the results are more then clear. My skin is like night and day - the marks have been dramatically reduced, and my breakouts have totally quit.
Levina is incredibly gentle and thorough and has given me a new outlook on my skin. After suffering for years with sensitive and combination skin, trying everything from ProActive to drugstore washes, and even mild prescriptions, and still fighting breakouts these past few months, I've finally found my answer to clear skin.
I could not be more thankful to Levina for giving me dramatic results, and allowing me the opportunity to feel comfortable with my face, and not having to cover it with make-up.
I would, and have, recommended Levina, and the microdermabrasion/laser process to ANYONE who is unhappy with their skin. It is one hundred and fifty percent worth every penny.
Great Massage! – I was visiting a friend in Boston and we decided we would take a day to pamper ourselves. My friend lives next to Kenmore Square and we didn't want to go too far so we we found SouthWest online and booked appointments for the end of the week.
After a short train ride we arrived at a nice condominium looking building. Inside was hidden the gem that is SouthWest. The spa is tastefully decorated and has an intimate layout. The atmosphere is tranquil, the staff is attentive and we were very happy with all of our services. The massage in paticular was one of the best I've ever had. My male massage therapist (first ever!) made me feel comfortable and gave a darn good massage.
I wish I lived closer so I could treat myself more often! Will certainly be dropping in on my next trip to Boston.
I could've stayed all day – Went here for a valentines day couples massage - the place was busy, but we were welcomed right in by the friendly ladies at the desk and brought to our room. I felt like a new lady after Martas handywork. Neither of us has had a massage before, but Mily and Marta made us feel comfortable and explained everything. They offer you tea, water, delicious baked goods, etc before and after your massage, and let you stay and relax in the waiting area as long as your want. Although the space was tight, their waiting area was comfortable and home-y. This is a little more pricey than other spas, but the convenience was worth it for me. Great staff, great massage, definitely thinking of heading back.
Southwest Day Spa – I have been going to Southwest Day spa for facials for over two years now and the results are astonishing. When I first went I had built up, clogged and oily skin...after jsut two facials my skin was looking better, smoother, clearer and radiant!! The ultrasonic facial is amazing, within a few motnhs my skin went from being messed up to being perfect! The people working there are friendly and professional. Levina, my facialist, gives very good advice and personalized treatment and she really cares about achieving good results for your happiness. The place is very clean, nicely decorated and the overall atmosphere is so relaxing, you just never want to leave!! You are never rushed and you feel like you are getting 100% of their attention and professional care....fthe feeling you get is that or the amount of time you are there, you are their MOST important customer! I warmly recommend their services to everyone!
Relaxing atmosphere – On a recent trip to Boston, I treated my two daughters and myself to a spa day at Southwest Day Spa . Since I live in another state, I chose this spa sight unseen from the testimonials. All three of us had massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, and we left there feeling relaxed and pampered. If you?re looking for a relaxing experience in a tranquil atmosphere, this is a good place.
Gift Certificate – I bought my girlfriend a gift certificate from this spa for her birthday. I am unfamiliar with spa services and the staff at southwest was extremely helpful. They walked me through a number of different services so I had a good understanding of what I was getting for her. The spa looked very clean and very comfortable, I'm sure she is going to love it.
Love this Spa!!! – I came in yesterday for a wax and I have to say that it was the best wax I ever got!!! The location is gorgeous. The girl who performed the wax was so nice (and patient with me!) and did an excellent job. She used two different kinds of wax. She explained that the hard wax was better for sensitive areas, and it was so much better than the regular strip wax that I have had in the past! I would definately give the spa a 5-star rating for aesthetic appeal, great service, and a fab wax!!! By the way, this is the cleanest spa I have ever been to.
