What to expect

IMG_0105Plan to arrive a few minutes early to allow time to park, and to fill out your intake form. We validate parking at the Market Street Garage.  We are located at 3rd and Market.  The garage is located on Market Street between 4th and 5th.  Bring your ticket in for us to stamp!

Cityspa is located in a historic house, downtown Charlottesville.    We are located within walking distance of the Omni Hotel, South Street Inn and Court Squire Inn.  One block from shopping, restaurants and entertainment.  Leave your car in the garage and enjoy an afternoon, into the evening at Cityspa and on the downtown pedestrian mall.  Many unique boutiques and some of the best restaurants in the world. Cityspa is known for the talent it houses.  Our estheticians, massage therapists and nail technicians are very popular because of the consistency of a great treatment the deliver at Cityspa.  They love what they do and it shows in their customized treatments.

Our massage therapists are exceptional and experienced in many different modalities. They will customize your massage with these modalities to relax you and alleviate muscle tension and soreness. Range-of-motion concerns can be improved upon or resolved. Your massage therapist will use the pressure you request and you are encouraged to give feedback. They are committed to giving you a quiet, peaceful massage so you can attain ultimate relaxation, so make certain you speak up if the pressure needs to be lighter or more firm. You will remain draped and covered the entire massage. Your therapist will only un-drape where they are working. Hot towels will be applied to your feet prior to your foot massage and hot stones are available at no charge for under your hands and feet.

We use Pevonia Botanica products for our facials. Pevonia is a French ultra-premium skin care line that is sold in destination spas all over the world. It contains no alcohol, fragrance, dyes or artificial ingredients. It contains powerful and effective all natural plant essences and essential oils. You absorb into your blood stream through capillaries whatever you put on your skin, so natural skin care is essential to good health. Results are not compromised however, as you will see for yourself when you look in the mirror after your facial and see how luminous your skin looks and how soft your skin feels.

Your esthetician will provide you with a skin analysis during your facial and talk with you about your concerns and goals. She will give you an expert facial and make home care recommendations so you can continue to enjoy the benefits of your facial daily, and experience real help for your dry, devitalized, red, sensitive, or oily skin. If you have a perfect complexion with no concerns, our estheticians will teach you how to protect your wonderful asset. It is always easier to prevent damage and wrinkles than to remedy them. Our estheticians love skin care and love helping you look and feel your best.  Our estheticians are very knowledgeable and dedicate your entire treatment to the analysis and treatment of your skin.

We offer nail services by an experienced nail technician.  She offers natural nails, manicures (French also), shellac manicures, and pedicures available with moisturizing mask and paraffin dip.  She will give you home care recommendations and present you with a beautiful finished product – beautiful nails.   Every outfit is great with a great manicure!  Come see all the great colors we have to offer you and your toes.

After your treatment, you will receive an email from me asking for comments and suggestions. We love to hear the great reviews, however if your visit falls short for whatever reason, we want to know. Any suggestions are gladly received. Your perspective is very valuable to us! Thank you for planning a visit to Cityspa. We look forward to “treating” you.   All of us at Cityspa!
