Top-notch experience from beginning to end! Upon arrival, the receptionist provided warm neck wraps and asked us to complete our paperwork. Our therapists then took us to private rooms to change into soft robes and put our clothing into lockers. The treatment rooms are lovely - warm, relaxing, and comfortable. The services provided (body wrap and hot stone massage) were... More

Was very pleasantly surprised that this small town Day Spa gave us one of the Best Massages we've Ever Had. Both my husband & I attended this Spa for 1 hour massages & they provided all around excellent service the whole time we were there. First the atmosphere both in waiting area & in rooms were very warm, relaxing, peaceful,... More

We had the luxury manicures. The massage alone and heat wraps on the hands were wonderful. Please forgive me but I don't remember the young lady who took care of us but she was awesome. My mom had recent hand surgery and her hand felt better than it has in weeks because of the extra time and attention given with... More

The good: Great atmosphere; nice and relaxing. Beautiful music. My husband had a GREAT massage with Mary. If you go with any of the specifically recommended massage therapists, I'm sure you'll love it. Unfortunately, this was one of the worst massages of my life. The headrest pillow was so old and thin it literally hurt my face. I had to... More

My daughter and I visited the Galena Day Spa for their Massage and Facial combo special. We both have had many massages elsewhere, but the facials were a first for us.

Well the pedicure I got wasn't worth $50! ( not to mention the tip..) Outside galena I've had pedicures for $35-50 that include hot wax, decals, sea salt scrub what have you-but this time, I seriously could have painted my nails better myself. While I found the attendant to be extremely pleasant and lovely, she just did a very mediocre... More

I had Susan Tetzlaff as my massage therapist and she was amazing! Very nice, listened to what I needed and have the best hot stone massage. We had a couples massage and enjoyed it very much. After, we were given champagne and chocolates to relax in their beautiful relaxation room. I highly recommend Galena Day Spa.
