I am a regular spa goer and Shizuka is one of several places I frequent. I started going to Shizuka in early 2005 am an avid fan of the Signature Anti-Aging Treatment Facial, which I receive twice a year in conjunction with GentleWaves Wrinkle Buster. The aestheticians, who are primarily Asian, are very thourough and gentle. They do take their time on facials and it is a relaxing experience. The rooms are just the right size, the lighting and background music is soft and soothing. I frequently regret the session has ended. The staff does not rush you out immediately following a treatment. You can spend as much time as you want sipping green tea and eating ginger cookies in the client post-treatment room, while wearing your bathrobe and straw slippers, courtesy of the spa. They give you a locker to put your clothes while you are undergoing treatment. The entire place has relaxing ambience with a Japanese theme- small waterfalls throughout the spa and soft, instrumental music. The staff is most professional and friendly. The prices are a bit high, but they are competitive by New York standards and the service is impecable. -- Christina Steiner, Queens, NY
