Reno >Healing Wizdom
This is the only spa I will go to for any kind of salon services. I go primarily for a brazilian wax and I've had almost every specialist treat me; I have simply enjoyed every single person that works here. Healing Wizdom's staff and environment are top notch and exceptionally pleasant. I recommend it to anyone who's looking for a peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Amazing!!!. Healing Wizdom is amazing! I came in a few months ago for a Brazilian bikini wax. I had never had any sort of wax before, and after doing some research I was understandably apprehensive. Shirley June was great. The technique they use (I don’t claim to understand it all) involves using oils to help loosen the hair. While it was uncomfortable, it was not painful. It went fast, and within minutes after the procedure I felt nothing uncomfortable. There was no recovery time whatsoever, no bruising, or any of the horrid things you read about. They also use great after products to sooth the skin and prevent ingrown hairs. I liked this so much that I’ve started regularly scheduling waxing at five week intervals. These later appointments go SUPER fast. They give you amazing tea after treatment and everyone is friendly and welcoming. I’ve been recommending them to everyone I know.
Best waxing in town!. Healing Wizdom is a great place for waxing especially Brazilian waxing! They take great care in making you feel comfortable and easing the
Great Massage!. I've had a few massages here over the years and so have some of my family members and the service/product have always been great. However, I recently had one of the best massages with Matthew. I had called on a Saturday in June and wanted a massage that weekend (as it was long overdue). I typically prefer a female therapist, but Matthew was available and the receptionist recommended him; plus I needed a massage! Healing Wizdom has always had 'good energy' and been a pleasant experience, but this was perfect as my tight areas were focused on and some stretches were explained to help me keep loose. It was great and so I booked my next session in July (which I never do b/c I like having flexibility with my schedule) and that next massage was just as informative and stress reducing . Matthew is a natural healer and I would recommend him to anyone looking to deeply relax and stretch out the body! Thank you Healing Wizdom!
Not of Quality nor Professionalism.
After reading the amount of positive reviews, I had high hopes for finally finding that "special" spa that would replace some of our local hot spots that have unfortunately closed their doors - Healing Wizdom is NOT that place.
Because it was my first visit, I was unaware that there were two locations within the complex. I sat there for 30 minutes before they realized the mistake due to the lack of professional greeting. No apology was given. I was sent on my way and that was that. The massage experience was comparable to their greeting - I have never been so tempted to call a massage to an early end but it was so much of a joke that it was almost laughable. The masseur could have been new, she definitely was not familiar with their computer setup. Hopefully, she will improve with experience. However, the front desk reception was inexcusable.
Amazing Wax by Kindra.
I would highly recommend Healing Wizdom and Kindra to anyone looking for a great experience with waxing. If it is your first time do not bother going anywhere else...Kindra made my experience with the Brazilian Wax a great one. She was professional, calming and was able to help with questions I had. She made me feel so comfortable and the calming lotion that is used afterwards topped the whole experience. From the front desk, the staff, the calming wax, the prices and the great cup of tea at the end I would recommend Healing Wizdom to all my friends.
Thank you so much Kindra, I look forward to my next visit =)
I love this place! The entire staff makes you feel like you belong there for whatever reasons you are visiting. There is tea to start the process and smiles everywhere as the soft spa scents relax you. Kendra is my favorite, but then I've only been to her. I've been to other "spa"s for Brazilian waxes and never before had a tummy warmer pillow and a little mini-massage prior to a wax.
Kendra sets you at ease and makes you feel completely comfortable. She is wonderful at the art of distraction and is extremely quick as well as very thorough. The beds are of the highest quality and the entire atmosphere is designed to make you feel like you've left Reno and landed in a remote spa location. Healing Wizdom makes you wish that you didn't have to space your appointments so far apart and the staff makes you feel like a true friend.
Best in Town. I have to tell you, its really hard to find someone that is reliable, clean, reasonable in pricing and good at what they do. I have been coming here only for two months now. Erin is the best!!!!! She's very personable, and it was a pleasure sharing stories while she was removing my hair. I have been waxing for over ten years now and no one compares to her. Erin is professional, organized, detailed, and diligent.
Least painful brazilian EVER.
This review is long overdue. I moved to Reno from San Francisco eight months ago and was in search of a good waxing place (eyebrows and brazilian) and based on the great yelp reviews decided to check this place out. This place is really as amazing as the reviews say it is.
I've been getting waxed since I was eighteen and as I moved around a lot I've been exposed to a number of different waxers. I have to say that this was the least painful experience I've ever had...maybe even bordering on relaxing side (yes, i didn't think that was possible either!). I've gotten several brazilian waxes by Kendra, and once was seen by Bryna. Kendra is confident and knows what she is doing--she's quick, helps you coordinate your breathing so that you experience a lot less pain as she pulls the wax off and the best part is, I no longer have any ingrowns! The warm towel on your belly, the hot rocks to hold on to and the post-wax products that they use make the dreaded ordeal seem more like a spa treatment. My experience w/ Bryna wasn't bad, but nothing compared to the quick and practically pain-free session w/ Kendra.
As for eyebrows, Tamara is the best. I may have to come back to Reno just for eyebrow waxes once i move back to SF! Even my husband noticed that my face looked prettier lol. I have had some eyebrow catastrophies in past w/ aestheticians taking way too much off and making my already chubby face look chubbier. Tamara leaves my eyebrows looking natural yet very well groomed. Also, I expect it is due to a combination of her expertise and the products that she uses, but I never have any post-waxing redness/scarring (which has been an issue in the past).
They're also really helpful w/ trying to accomodate clients. I'm a resident physician w/ a busy schedule and the girls on the phone are always trying to fit me in one way or another. Just last month I was running very late and Tamara ever so sweetly did my eyebrows over at her hair salon and was really nice about it!
This Place Rocks.
I just had moved up to Reno from CA in July of this year. Finding a new place in a new town is uncomfortable for anyone who has to make this change. A few weeks after moving here I needed my hair done and I searched Yelp and had found the Spa and Hair Salon. I called up and THANK GOD Shirley from the Salon answered. She booked me the same day and my experience was awesome. I have since been back every 6 weeks or so for a new hair change. Shirley is very attentive and extremely easy to talk to.
After having my hair done with Shirley she let me know about the services at the Spa and I booked an appointment with Bryna to have my arm pits waxed having never done it before. Not only was it a perfect experience everyone at the spa made it a I have to come back in 4 weeks experience. Bryna is amazing and kind and gentle and sweet.
I could not imagine a better experience than I have had with the Salon and the Spa and would encourage anyone to try either one of them out.
