Love this spa! 11/23/2010

What a great find! I've lived in New York for 10 years been to lots of spas but just found this one through a friend. I love it. The facial was incredible and unlike other spas you do not feel like tehfacial is all about selling you products. I will be going back! more

Best Day Spa in New York City!! 11/10/2010

Shizuka Day Spa is by far the best day spa I have EVER been to. The atmosphere is so relaxing and calming. The whole staff is very nice and accomodating. Their facials are also by far the best I have received and I have been to so many other spas for facials. I highly recommend this spa to anyone, especially spa lovers. Best in NY!! more

Very Nice and Going Back for another treatment 10/22/2010

I tried Shizuka New York Day Spa twice. Both time, I had very good experience. The place is very clean and relaxing. Also both time when I tried, the service was awesome. I felt my skin became much better than ever! Definitely going back again!!! more

Best Eyelash Perm 10/15/2010

Once a 2 months, I get the eyelash perm service at the Shizuka Day Spa. The spa is quiet and has very relaxing ambiance. The service is very good, and the best thing is that perm itself lasts longer than other spas I have visited. I don't live in NYC, but I visit to NYC just to visit the Spa. I mean, the Shizuka spa is that great. I highly recommend it! more

Simply the best... and the classiest! 10/12/2010

Shizuka NY Day Spa is absolutely the best. It's very clean and upscale, the receptionists very hospitable, and the massage therapists very professional and competent. A truly good value for all the goodness you get in return. I highly recommend it. more

Photofacial 10/11/2010

I totally recommend the Photofacial. My freckles and age spots have been removed by this treatment. The place is very clean & you feel really comfortable. more

Awesome! 5/17/2010

My girlfriend recommended that we go to Shizuka's Spa, I'm so glad that I listened to her because we had a? wonderful experience.? We only had time for a mani/pedi but the atmosphere was so relaxing and I was treated like royalty. All the details were thought of from the temperature of the water to the comfy cushions we sat on. They even had my favorite color. I will definitely be going back! PS: The green tea? and snacks are? delicious more

Old hair removal laer machine.. 4/24/2010

I did laser hair removal, but the machine was too old! They cool the skin with ice since the machine doesn't have the cooling function, which the new machines have. .so it takes a loong time and painful. Pros: not too bad customer service Cons: Machine is old! more

Loved It! 2/21/2010

Shizuka New York is a beautiful, serene spa. The staff is friendly and accomodating. I went with a friend a couple of weeks ago and had a manicure/pedicure with 30 minute reflexology and it was one of the best I ever had. If you book a reflexology appointment, you must ask for Takumi - fabulous! Shizuka also came over to us and offered us wine and chocolate for Valentine's Day. I felt the staff was very attentive and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. I would definitely go back to Shizuka's, and in the very near future. more

Best Facial I've had 11/23/2009

The first thing you notice is how clean this place is. I like the Japanese esthetic and I especially appreciate that you don't feel you are being rushed like at other spas I've been to. The technicians are knowledgeable and polite and no one pushes products or other services at you. It is peaceful and calm and that's just how you feel after a facial over here. Definite thumbs up! Pros: Facial, Relaxing, Top Day Spa more

Exactly What I Kneeded (Get It?) 11/19/2009

I recently had an awesome massage experience at ShizukaNY. I had never really had a professional massage, but boy was I in for a treat. I was greeted by a very pleasant woman at the front desk and was directed to go change into a Japanese-style robe and slippers. Very relaxing. The decor and lighting also helped set a very relaxing and mellow mood, which was nice. Next thing I know, I'm face down on a padded (very very comfortable) massage table getting worked on by one of their pros. The next half-hour or so were a blur as the masseuse took the tension out of every muscle in my body. I can't even remember what she did that was so good, you'll just have to find out for yourself! Needless to say, I felt like a human puddle after she was through with me. Most relaxed I've felt in a long long time. Little cookies and green tea afterward only added to the pampered feeling. The only down-side was having to leave. I was in a fog (a really really nice fog) for the next hour or so, so be warned: do NOT operate heavy machinery after an hour at ShizukaNY! Highly highly recommended. Pros: Best Massage Ever Cons: Having to return to reality afterwards more

Nirvana on West 51st Street 11/2/2009

I have found nirvana and it is located just off of 5th Avenue on west 51st Street at Shizuka New York. Last Friday, after an extremely stressful week, working for an extremely demanding boss, I decided to treat myself to a facial. A friend had recommended Shizuka?s and since I work in the neighborhood, I decided to give it a go. Pros: Relaxing, therapeutic, sheer bliss more

Horrible Service from Management, Decent facial 4/16/2009

My friend and I booked a Geisha facial during Spaweek, we both understand that things can get a little hectic during Spaweek but we were treated so poorly that I had to write this review. Our experience started with a very rude doorman who shouted for our names and shouted ""you sixth floor, you sixth floor too"" My friend and I had a 7PM appointment and we arrived at 6:40PM. We waited for about 10min until the manager finally approached us to let us know that they had double booked us and said ""sorry but there is nothing that he could do about it"" and that ""if we were him what would we had him do?"" He said that there were only 2 therapists available for the 7PM time slot and that he could ""accommodate"" us on another day (he did not mention free). We were both surprised because if they had booked 3 of us and me and my friend showed up first then doesn't it make sense to honor our appointments? FINALLY, the other girl with the 7PM appointment showed up and he actually LINED US UP on the sofa and said ""Sorry but I think we double booked an appointment, there is nothing that I can do right now but ONE OF YOU WILL HAVE TO COME BACK ANOTHER DAY"" Me and my friend could not believe he put us in such an awkward position but luckily the other girl offered to have her facial at 7:50PM albeit not without a little bit of attitude towards us. We just could not apprehend why they would treat their clients like that especially when they know that they were the one who made the mistake. Instead of rectifying the situation they decided that they wanted 3 unhappy clients. The facial tho rush was decent. I got Shizuka and she mentioned right before the facial that this will be a shorten version of their regular Geisha facial (which although was not advertised earlier) I was fine with. Pros: Decent facial Cons: Rude Staff, A-bit overpriced more

amazing facial with amazing facialist! 8/1/2008

i've been to several reknowned spas and this one takes the cake. i'm usually pretty particular about the places i go to, i'm a loyalist through and through. i don't mind spending the money, as long as the quality of work is what i feel is my money's worth. looking up on google, i came across shizuka as a new york mag best of facial. i immediately booked an appt with shizuka herself, and was excited from all the amazing reviews i had read about her. when i first showed up for my appt i was directed to change into a more comfortable robe and soon, shizuka led me into a room for a consultation. after briefly distinguishing my concerns from my problems, she suggested that i go with the micro facial. i had made it clear that i was willing to pay whatever i had to clear up the recent bout of congestion my skin had been suffering, but since she knew i was going to hawaii within the following weeks, she recommended that we hold off on the LED light or microdermabrasion. Pros: the lady knows what she's talking about more

Friendly place and good service 7/8/2008

I have had botox one time before, but thought I'd try this place because it is closer to my office. Dr. Silich was very patient and answered all of my questions. His botox injections were quick and less painful than I remember from before. While I was there I decided to have a manicure also. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. I also liked their green tea. I will probably go back next time. Pros: location, staff, green tea Cons: slightly pricy more

Wrinkle Buster Treatment is the BEST 3/14/2008

When I read an article about Shizuka?s Day Spa I thought ?An Asian atmosphere in the middle of our hectic Manhattan environment?. What a great idea! Since I enjoyed several vacations in Asian countries, I looked forward to the appointment I made at Shizuka?s. It turned out to be more than I expected. From the moment I stepped out of her private elevator to her 6th floor retreat, it became my wonderland. I was too early for my appointment so an attractive receptionist led me into the Lounge. She seated me in one of the upholstered armchairs and served me green tea with delicately thin delicious cookies. It was such a calm and soothing environment. Every detail was perfect including the soft lights and soothing music. When the aesthetician introduced herself, I was already relaxed. She guided me into a treatment room and gave me a comfortable gown to change into. S he examined my face with microscopic lenses and suggested a micro facial to rid me of facial whiteheads and a Wrinkle Buster treatment for the deep lines around my lips. I had a few minutes of discomfort while she did her job. After the difficult part, she gently massaged my face with several different soothing, yummy creams. The result of the hour long procedure was amazing. After I dressed, she took me into the make-up room where she analyzed the results. I was delighted. My complexion glowed!!!! The face in the mirror appeared ten years younger. I made another appointment for the following week and included time for the manicure and pedicure the spa offered. My total experience at the Spa was wonderfully uplifting. My honest opinion is ?two thumbs up?. Pros: Convenient after-work, midtown location Cons: Not even one!!! more

It was much better before... 3/6/2008

I had been going to Shizuka for a number of years and was very pleased with the spa's services and prices. It seems like the price point of services may have increased recently (or I may have noticed it more recently), relative to other spas that offer similar or same services. The business hours during the week used to be an hour later than is currently, which has also prevented me from returning. I think the receptionists and the aestheticians are very professional, pleasant and nice. I am not so sure if it is worth paying the premium to go to the spa, when I can get the same level of service at a cheaper price elsewhere. Pros: Highly skilled/trained aesthetician, location Cons: High price point more

Relaxed and Refreshed 3/4/2008

I had a Micro Facial at Shizuka NY and I totally enjoyed it. I have really oily skin and I get nervous about having facials but they really customized it to my skin. The technician asked a lot of questions to make sure that it was the right one for me. When she said my face was in need of hydrating, I got concerned, but she was totally dead on right. My face hasn't felt or looked this good in a long time. Pros: Knowledge of the technicians, service, concern for clients needs more

Sheer incompetence 2/19/2008

Seriously ladies, spend your money elsewhere. I am a frequent spa-goer (Ohm Spa and Thai privilege among my favorites), and I had a miserable experience at this spa. First, I was made to wait for 45 minutes for the facialist to retrieve me from the waiting area for my 5:30 appointment. I had dinner plans for the evening which I was getting late for, so when I asked to reschedule, the receptionist kept insisting ""she'll be right out"". Everyone seemed thoroughly incompetent -- once my facialist received me, she performed everything so hurriedly and awkwardly; she seemed pretty inexperienced, and did not make me feel the least bit at ease/pampered. There were also atrocious overhead lights on the entire time, and the entire place is much uglier than other spas. Pros: Midtown location - convenient post-work Cons: Customer service, poor value, chaotic/cramped, ambiance relative to competition, incompetence of staff more
