Great Spa, Highly Recommended
By janeismyname on 9/6/2008
I went there for my anniversary and absolutely loved it. The people really know what they are doing and they really focused on what I needed work on. My back and shoulders feel like new and my nails came out simply beautiful. The spa itself is very clean and hygienic, the staff is very nice and the prices are very reasonable for the caliber of service. The only potential negative is that they don't have showers but that wasn't a big problem for me. I would definitely recommend going.
Best Massage in New York. Period.

I was about to give up on massages just before I found Ohm. I had wasted too much time and money on frou-frou rub downs by illegals who had no business being in this country, much less touching other human beings for a living. I was clueless and had thought that's just how massages are. But then I found Ohm Spa. Sure, it was more money than I was used to spending but I had a gift card which covered part of the cost so I thought "what-the-hell." And now I've seen the light. I went in a burnt piece of toast. I came out an al-dente noodle. Best of all, unlike the places that charge $40/hour, everyone speaks English and they actually seem to care about what they are doing. I went to a place in Chinatown once where the woman was actually talking on the phone while she was working on me! Trust me, Ohm is the real deal.
Is this really a spa?

In full disclosure, I'm the type of spa consumer who hopes for great services, but longs for a lovely/comfortable spa setting. Sadly, entering Ohm spa is like entering someone's cramped nyc apartment. Sure the place was clean, but it was cramped, poorly decorated (bad lighting, cheap furniture), and hardly serene. The entire time I wondered if I was in the right spa because the reviews of this place have been so unusually positive. In terms of the actual services (we got massages), they were hardly remarkable. My particular masseuse wasn't particularly well-trained (would massage parts of my left side and neglect/forget the right side) and she spent a disproportionate amount of time on my feet (odd). Next time, I'll save my cash for a spa setting (perhaps one of the many lux hotel spas in the city) where you can truly relax, take in your surroundings, and get your money's worth.
ohm in love with OHM!

i love Ohm Spa. i received a gift certificate for a gamut of services, used them on different days over a few months. each visit is fabulous. it's one of the most tranquil spas in new york city. i even make it a point to get there a little bit early so i can sit in the meditation room, where there are snacks (fruits, cookies, crackers) and drinks (lemonade, water). the aestheticians are great, giving you advice on what products to use to what foods to eat to keep your skin fresh. the massage rooms are ultra-private. the employees are super nice. it's overall a serene place.

After a few really tough months at work, my body began telling me it was in need of some serious downtime. I only get 1 day off a week (I'm a performer on Broadway) so I went all out and booked a deluxe package at Ohm. First of all, they are the nicest people you could ever meet. Even when I called to make my appointment, the woman on the phone was really sweet and had the patience to answer all my questions - good start. After my massage, I could feel that my muscles had been worked. Not sore, but I could definitely feel the massage afterwards. Then I had the honey facial and I felt like I had new skin - really amazing! The manicure/pedicure is done in a really cool room with the most comfortable massage chairs you can imagine and the polish is still on 2 weeks later! Everything smelled so nice! I was there for about 4.5 hours and the total bill came out to about $380 with tax and tip - worth every penny in my book. I will definitely go back!

Having visited practically every spa in NYC, my favorite has to be Ohm. It's elegant, private and attentive - the perfect place for me to escape my crazy life. I've recommended them to friends and they all come back with the same reaction. Believe me, once you go, you'll wonder how you ever got by before they came along. - M.K.
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
