Oakland >Body By Melisa
Felt like a King!. Epic experience - changed my outlook on the whole week and made me feel like a king!
I am in Oakland for a job detail and I was looking for a place to have a massage. My friend told me about spaweekand that is were I found Body by Melisa. From the first contact with her - Melisa is the one who returned my call for an appointment - to the end of each treatment, I received nothing but wonderful and considerate care and professionalism. The location of the facility is in an older part of Piedmont, so it has an open breezy feel. (side note - lots of coffee shops and cute little stores in walking distance) I had a full body massage from Michelle that was to die for. Michelle followed my body's cues as well as mine in regards to the massage - I am a bit of a wimp and I need a more gentle touch than most. My second treatment was a fantastic facial with Melisa herself. I had schduled the facial with a trendy place in SFO but cancelled it and scheduled it with Melisa after I had such great treatment and care from Michelle. My skin has not felt so good in a long time. She explained each step of the procedure so I would know what was coming. She also did extractions - okay, they hurt a bit - but they were extractions. She took great care to let me know what type of products would help my skin - not just from the items she had in her shop, but store brand items that could do a good job as well. It was no sales pitch - I got the feeling she was very sincere in her recommendations.
I highly recommend Body by Melisa.
I know this is you and wanted to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for such a fabulous review. Michelle and I have really enjoyed working with/on you and your energy here was so good for us. We hope to see you again if in the area! To your good health my dear
The best experience I ever had. My husband treated me to a massage and facial at Body by Melisa, I was not sure what to expect since this was a first for me, all I can say is it was wonderful I am not sure I have ever felt so good. Melisa is a wonderful person and the atmosphere there is breath taking so calm and peaceful. I have had so many people say how beautiful my face looks since my facial. Celia, the massage I got from her felt so good I didn't realize I could feel so good. I had a wonderful time there and I would recommend Body by Melisa to everyone....I will be going back again real soon....Thanks again....Susan
Best spa in Bay Area.. I had such wonderful experience at Body By Melisa, Melisa is incredibly knowledgeable about skin, and products, I have been getting skin-bella facial treatment for several times now and absolutely loved it , my skin has improve so much with just 4 visits that I am move confident walking out of my house without foundation on. In addition, the botanical skin care products that Melisa has recommend me to use are so much better any other products I have use in the past. Celia and Alex are both very friendliest and helpful, I love getting massage from them, they helped me relax and distress. Highly recommended!!
Treat yourself well!. I had such a great experience at Body By Melisa that I went back one week later. Melisa and her staff are skilled and friendly. The place is cute and relaxing and clean. I tried the Infrared red sauna which was a low heat sauna to detox, then onto the awesome body scrub. I feel like I got a whole new layer of smooth skin. Today I went back for the Bella Skin facial, which took off layers of dead skin and again made me feel like new. Highly recommended. Look out for their specials online. Plus it's just a short stroll to all the cute restaurants on Piedmont Ave...so it's a perfect combo for a girls day out.
Best Facial. The best facial i have ever had, i have problem skin, but with only two visits to Melisa, my skin is almost perfect. I reccomend this spa to everyone!!!!!!!Great massages also.
Treat yourself to a mini vacation and visit Body by Melisa!.
Today I had a wonderful massage by Alex Lin at Body by Melisa on Piedmont Avenue in Oakland. When I first contacted Melisa she was very warm and showed genuine care and concern about meeting my needs. After hearing what my specific problems are she recommended I meet with Alex as his areas of expertise fit what is most helpful to me at this time. Just walking up the stairs and into the spa takes you to a different world. The smells are lovely - fresh, deep, pure - and heighten the atmosphere of rejuvenation and relaxation. The beautiful cedar sauna in the massage room looks inviting and also adds a warm scent and feel to the room. The sheets were beautiful and unique. Alex was excellent and I plan to get on a regular schedule with him. I am looking forward to my facial with Melisa herself later this month. Treat yourself to a mini vacation and visit Body by Melisa!

Tell your friends!. I had a wonderful experience getting a slimming body wrap from Melisa. This wrap is unlike anything I've ever done, and I never felt so physically and mentally invigorated after a treatment (lasted for days afterward). Well worth the time and money!
Great Experience. WOW! If the atomosphere, professionalism and attention to detail weren't enough to make me come back the 11.5 inches I lost in my hips-thighs-stomach area after my Far Infrared Sauna and Body Wrap session sure were. Melisa is wonderful and I cannot say enough about the sauna! Go see for yourself, Im sure you wont leave without booking a second appointment- Just like I did
The best skin care ever!!!!. Melisa is wonderful...and so is her peaceful spa. I would nap there all day if I could. I love the dermabrasion treatments and all her natural skin products...its amazing how my skin has changed with just a few visits. Definitely a must and top of my list for excellent, personal spa care!!!!
