Had a facial with Devon and I loved it. Hadn't had one in some time, but afterwords, my skin was flawless and it still looks fab! "Very knowledgeable.."Thanks Devon.

Excellent Massages! 11/25/2008

I live on the Peninsula but was introduced to In-Symmetry years ago and have been going there frequently. I have to admit that, despite the odd location (more of a residential neighborhood), the place offers extremely great services. Joey is fabulous at deep tissue massages and all the rest of the staff are friendly and helpful. There's plenty of parking available around the place and the rates are very reasonable. I've never tried the facials, only heard wonderful things about them. Definitely worth a visit...even if only to try it for once. Pros: Courteous staff, relaxing ambience, great massage therapists Cons: none that I can think of more

Best massage in town! 9/23/2008

I have been going to In-symmetry for months now to get my monthly tune-up and I just have to say I love this place. The location, the affordability, and not to mention the amazing therapists they have on staff. Wanted to give props to two newer therapists I've tried recently, Rebecca for massage and Devon for facials. Rebecca is amazing at applying enough pressure to really get into the muscles but not too much that you feel your whole body tense up from the pain. She really worked on my hip issue and also made me feel super relaxed by the end. Devon is an amazingly caring esthetician who gives a killer facial, mixed with massage and hot rocks, it felt divine! I highly recommend this place, and the receptionists are super sweet too! Pros: Price, location, experience Cons: None more

Getting 'stoned' has never been this awesome 7/19/2008

why would you go downtown, having to deal with the madness that is, freak out over the lack of parking, when you could just as easily zoom (or take a bus) up to Potrero Hill , park (ample amounts of parking), be buzzed into a beautiful loft (that plays coco rosie!) lit only by the sun, greeted by a pretty girls who bring you water, then off to your own private room with great zen out music (none of that Enya b.s.) and settle in to the best massage of your life? The thing I loved about In-symmetry compared to other "hot rock" spas, is that they actually work the muscles WITH the rocks instead of just having you lie on them or whatever. While I was "getting stoned" with Katie, my girlfriend was having a facial with Devon. I asked my girl friend what she thought of her experience, and she said "oh Devon and I are going to be best friends soon." So I leave feeling drunk from relaxation, and my girlfriend left with brand new skin (and a bunch of products) and three more appointments each for the books. Seriously people, don't ever go anywhere else. We love in-symmetry! Pros: So Cheap, So awesome! Cons: none. more

UmmmmHmmmm 7/19/2008

Oh yeah, love this place. Best massage ever. I have been here about a dozen times and have seen three therapists and I can not remember names. Just know I LOVE THEM! They keep track of the therapists names for me. Atmosphere is really comfortable, clean and unique. Hidden Gem. Therapists are really really good. They use hot stones before they go in for the big knots. Delish! Price is just right. I can't believe you can still get a massage for $70 these days. I am one happy customer of this place. My friends get facials and love them too. I much prefer to get massage because I don't have bad skin, yet. I do buy some of the facial products and love them too. Pros: skill of therapists more

aesome people, great prices! 7/18/2008

So this place is a little out of the way, but i was stoked because there was a good deal of parking around. Everyone was super nice when i came in. I got a massage/facial combo as a gift from my boyfriend on my birthday. Man was this EVER a great way to spend my birthday too. Everyone said Happy birthday and you could tell they went out of their way to make sure i was having a good one. I would definitely recommend going to this place. I've had a couple massages before, but never with hot rocks. I am totally a fan now. They even used hot AND cold rocks in the facial, which made for an amazing feeling in my face. I felt so pampered when i came out. So if you ever need to relax, or your looking for a gift, this is the spot to do it at! :) Pros: awesome awesome services and prices Cons: a tad bit out of the way more

No Hesitation To Recommend 6/19/2008

I have been going to this place for years. It is not in the middle of things and it is in an area that is a little funky to find but it is a hidden gem. Hot stone and deep tissue massage like no other. I alternate between massage therapists (Jackie, Donna and Joey). They are all three deep and excellent! I only get my facials with Shana. She puts you into a state of mind that you never want to come back from. Then you wake up with glowing, hydrated skin. The price is reasonable and the service is above and beyond it's prices. Pros: Tons of Parking, Affordable, Friendly Staff Cons: Funky Location more

AVOID this place 5/25/2008

It all started out nice as a gift from my wife for my birthday after she had reviewed this place as the #1 best sf massage on city search. This place is in a gated residential condo/loft above the industrial thug area in between 280 and 101 in SF. They have no sign or safe parking unless you drive a cheap car or accept to pay one of the homeless outside to watch it for you. I honestly did not feel safe so I had to cancel the appointment. As a result the owner charged in full not only for the time slot as some other places might, but for all services scheduled. So if this sounds like a good time to you go for it but I will stick with the extra fee and get pampered as you should in the spa's downtown. If you are use to a full body private massage at someones home this is for you. . Pros: past clients like it Cons: no safe way up to the location more

great place 2/22/2008

After a hour of deep tissue massage u will feel relaxed and invigorated . their services and staff are great ..it is also a place were you can take your clients .After a tiring week there is no place i would like to go to but IN_SYMMETRY..i can go on and on about how great they are.i would strongly recommend them to any one. more

Great spa and service!!! 1/13/2008

I hate to give such a high rating because because this may make it harder for me to obtain last minute appointments in the future. I live down the penisula and not in SF. However, whenever I go shopping in the city, I drop for a facial and massage. Last friday, Joey and Cynthia provided the services. They were both great! Each took the time to explain what they were about to do and make the enviroment completely relaxing. Joey does deep tissue, not your spa-like deep tissue. Sometime when you tell someone that you want deep tissue, the massage ends up being a light weight session. I even had to tell him to lighten up a bit, which never happens but I felt completely relaxed afterwards. Cynthia's facials were great...the products were cooling and my face felt continue to feel wonderful afterwards. I haven't had a facial in years but not only are her products cool, she does a great massage on shoulders/hands. Again, she is sensitive to individual needs...I hate that steam machine...sometimes feels suffacating...so she doesn't point it directly on my face. This place is highly recommended because it has great people that provide outstanding service and is not like some of those 'chi-chi' spas that sometimes treat its clients like cattle to move people in and out. Pros: service oriented, relaxing enviroment Cons: none at this time. more

I love In-Symmetry and I loooove Wendy!! 12/5/2007

Wendy is amazing!! She has such great hands - she gave me a therapeutic, deep tissue massage to work out some very old knots in my shoulders and neck. Add the hot rocks and I was in LaLaLand. It was intense at times (a good kind of intense) and she checked in with me often to make sure the pressure wasn't too deep for my comfort level. Immediately after my massage, I was dazed and didn't know which way was up. Now, a very hot shower and a few hours later, I feel energized yet totally relaxed. Thank you, Wendy, and thank you In-Symmetry! more

Happy as a clam 10/29/2007

I just had a deep tissue/hot rocks massage with Katie and am happy as a clam. She has a flowy and rhythmic style which lulled me into a deep, relaxed, hypnotic state. The arm and hand massage were wonderful - I didn't want it to end! I will definitely be back for more!! Pros: Love the loft space, friendly attentive staff, more than reasonable prices Cons: None that I can think of! more

aaaahhhhhhhhh ..... 8/24/2007

wow - i feel so much better after an afternoon at in-symmetry. i just had a kick-ass massage with sonya t. and loved it!! her technique combines deep tissue massage with myofascial trigger point therapy. it was perfect for all the aches and pains i was having in my shoulders and arms. 5 solid stars for sonya and for in-symmetry! (there are 2 sonya/sonja's at in-symmetry. i've heard sonja is awesome too but haven't been able to try her yet. this review is for sonya t.) Pros: unpretentious atmosphere and super friendly staff! more

Best Massage Hands Down 7/27/2007

My husband and I went to San Fran for a weekend getaway and I found In-Symmetry on City Search. The best massage, friendly staff, professional therapists, relaxing environment. It was nice to get out of downtown and explore the city a little deeper. I'm ready to plan my next trip to San Francisco, just to go back to In-Symmetry for another Hot Stone Massage. more

My Home Away From Home 7/25/2007

I have been going to In-Symmetry for six years now. I have watched this business grow from just Candace and Corey to many AMAZING therapists and facialists. There are 19 total, to be exact :-) I have gone to each and every person that joins the team at one point or another. I feel like it is a fun mix of people that are extremely gifted. I am a nerd and keep notes on each person so I can figure out my mood and go to the appropriate person for the week. It feels like a smorgasbord of people to choose from. I LOVE IT! Not to mention I have seen a HUGE difference in my skin since using the products Corey spent so many years searching for. They work wonders on me. AND a big huge plus is the price that allows me to go every week! The setting is in a loft complex. So it feels just like a home away from home. The atmosphere is so relaxing. Only issue is finding the location. Tricky but once you do, you found a treasure chest!!!! more

Very Nice People, Good Customer Service 7/23/2007

I went to In Symmetry for a massage a few weeks ago. If you're looking for real deep tissue, leaning toward sports massage, this isn't the place, but for a nice relaxing hour of "ahhh" it's perfect. The hot rocks are a warm and fuzzy twist. Having enjoyed my massage experience, I decided to book a facial at In Symmetry. I read the raves about Corey, but couldn't get an appointment with her, so I set something up with another esthetician who works here. Though it was relaxing, I left with shiny, red skin that broke out later that afternoon. I've had facials before and not had any similar reaction, so I was surprised. I would recommend In Symmetry for a relaxing massage because the atmosphere is inviting and the people are friendly. - - - Update: Candace from In Symmetry called me, after seeing my review, to find out more about my experience, saying that they strive for excellent customer service. I was really happy to hear from her, and have gone from three stars to four. Like I said, very nice people. Pros: great prices, friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere, parking Cons: slightly greasy facial more

Best Deep Tissue Massage! 6/12/2007

I would recommend In-Symmetry to anyone who has never experienced a hot stone deep tissue massage. I went in thinking what's with the hot stone business? Just give me a deep tissue massage something that I know and need. Boy was I in for a surprise for of my life. The experience was out of this world! I left very relaxed but filled with energy. My massage therapist mentioned everyone has different experiences. I was happy with mine so much so that I am going back! Speaking of the staff, they were very friendly, professional and courteous. The price was sweet also for only $50.00 for a one hour massage not including tip! The price does go up after June 15 to $10.00 but I think that is still a great deal for the city. I have to add that this special price is on the weekdays (Tuesdays? -Thursdays)from 9am -9pm. I usually pay $80.00 plus tip for a one hour massage. I would highly recommend In-Symmetry to anyone who is new or not to hot stone deep tissue massages! Enjoy! Pros: Great prices for a one hour massage and lots of free parking to boot! more

Best Massage in San Francisco 6/6/2007

Okay, so this place is amazing!! Really down to earth don't get a snotty vibe at all. The price is awesome! The massages are always deep and find all your knots. The staff is so inviting and sweet. I just could go on and on.....I have been coming here for about 3 months and I have all wonderful experiences. It is the perfect getaway from all of your stress. Pros: PARKING Cons: None more

Great little find 6/2/2007

I happened upon this through citysearch. For the price, it's well worth it. We did the $50/1 hour deal. It's a little hard to find but parking was easy and the site provides very specific directions to help you out. The staff was very friendly and my massage was relaxing. At times she pressed on my muscles a little too hard. The place tries to look very upscale but in reality it's outfitted by ikea (I recognized a lot of the furniture *smile*). But overall I thought this was a good deal especially if you can't afford a really fancy massage at a day spa. Pros: Price, parking more
