I have been getting a massage at this place about every other week, since 2007! It's such a wounderful and relaxing place, especially after a huge workout.
Awesome massage, reasonable price, friendly staff, peaceful and clean. They serve drinks, juices, mild munchies and always soothing music to immediately start soothing my frown lines. Every time after my massage, I feels like a new energetic person.
Highly recommend this such excellent spa for everyone.

I know this place is known for its facials but I have to say it is my favorite place in the city to go for massage. The rooms and beds are so comfortable and whatever they are doing over there they know how to hire talented therapists. Every single person I have seen for massage has been off the charts good. And they go the extra mile with pampering including hot towels on my feet and back. You can get last minute massage appointments a lot of the time during the week, which is always good for people like me who are not good at planning. I love this place!
For my birthday my boyfriend booked me a warm lavender salt scrub, massage, and facial at Spa Radiance. The whole experience was divine. They are doing something right there...every single staff member was warm, inviting and professional. My scrub and massage were out of this world. They have a shower to rinse off in between treatments. My skin was absolutely smooth after the treatment and Leslie the massage therapist is excellent. After I went for my facial. This was not an ordinary facial. First, they do lots of massage on your face, neck, shoulders and feet and hands. I had an LED lightening facial using specials lights that literally made my complexion smoother. It really worked and I can be quite skeptical. All in all one of the best spa experiences I have had.
Ok, I go to a lot of spas and this one is incredible. While they do not have a large waiting area or relaxation room, their treatments are to die for. I have had problem skin all my life. After working with a number of estheticians at Spa Radiance, my skin has completely changed. I am not kidding you. I look like a different person. All my friends and family comment every time they see me. What I love at Spa Radiance is their Peel Bar. They have something like 30 peels to choose from. They really work. My skin is smooth and glowy. Oh, and I love their rooms and beds. Very luxurious. I feel totally pampered when I come here. You will love it. Definitely book a facial.

I got the organic facial and that was a HUGE mistake. I was warned that it was going to burn a little, which I thought was weird, but sat through the burning anyway. I don't even have sensitive skin. Regardless, it probably burned a little more than it should have because unfortunately it left me looking like I had razor burn along my chin and jaw line, so bad I took a day off of work. The following day I had a dry skin beard and little flakes of skin kept falling onto my keyboard at work (GROSS!!). I will never go back there again. You've been warned.

I have been to more or less every spa in the city since moving here 2 years ago. I will never go anywhere else after finding this place. BEST FACIALS EVER. EVER. Julia is amazing.
The products are great, service is great. Worth the $$ and it is usually (surprisingly) easy to book appointments.

A good bikini wax is hard to find but you can find one here! I won't say it was pain-free because, let's face it - ripping hair off your skin is not the most pleasurable experience ever - but Christina was quick and gentle. I highly recommend her!
Tremendously OVERRATED! Waited almost an hour, no apologies, and then the facial made me break out! I was better off with out the ""deep pore cleansing"" for over a hundred bucks. I have been to spas before when I have had good service (ie Jurlique,. Nob Hill Spa). I am sorry to say it- I will start writing about the good ones!!
Sad but true. Save your money and go somewhere else.
I just had a facial from Christina-I usually go to Kika but she was not avaialble so I gave Chrisitina a try--I am glad I did--don't get me wrong Kika is great but Christina was as well--my skin is actually glowing-she did full extractions for me-which some other aestheticians seem to be hesitant about--she also talked me through every step and expalined the benefits of each process--I am excited that I know have 2 great aestheticians I can see as Spa Radience!! (Just an FYI-I am in the skin care bsuiness myself so I know what a facial should be and the results you should get)
I discovered Spa Radiance by following my esthetician, Christina, there. What a terrific place! Not only is Christina a pro, but everyone I have come into contact with there is super friendly, helpful and professional. I've had my legs, bikini, underarms and brows waxed, plus a facial, and all services and treatments were great. I highly recommend it.
If you are looking for a truly fast, efficient and professionally performed Waxing Treatment, use Christina Fisher at the Radiance Spa in San Fransisco. She is so good at her work that I just had to share this info with you all. I have had many wax jobs in my life as most women in this city, and she is by far the best person to do the job to minimize the pain, discomfort and any complications that are often associated with this kind of treatment. She is also a pleasure to be around, and makes you feel like a VIP every time. My smooth legs thank you Christina!
A family member suggested that I get a facial as I had been having symptoms of dermatillomania, or picking of the skin of the face. As a peformer, I had been applying heavy stage make-up six days a week. Not only was my skin a mess but I felt ashamed that in tying to ""get rid"" of blemishes, I was in fact scarring myself!
Luckily, I saved my face at Spa Radiance. My esthetician Christina helped me immensly by making me feel comfortable and not ashamed. She told me that this skin condition was more common than I had though and set up a regime for me to follow morning, noon and night. Every time I felt like picking, I did something good for my skin instead!
She gave me a gentle chemical peel which made my skin glow and she explained everything that she did so I could mimic the spa facial at home. Her approach was sensitive and thorough.
People who haven't seen me in a while comment on how beautiful I look now and I am free to let my face shine.

I just had a terrible experience at Spa Radiance. I usually go to a different place but i read a good review on Spa Radiance in a magazine and decided to give it a try. I got a bikini wax. The esthetician, Christine, did a horrible job resulting in several bruises in my bikini area. My skin was so damaged that it started ble-eding, but she assured me that it was ""normal."" Well, it is not. I get my bikini area waxed on a regular basis and this have never happened before. I left in tears - i am going to a beach vacation in Spain in a week, and just pray that the bruises will start going away by then. The girls at the checkout desk were completely unsympathetic and did not even offer that I spoke to a service manager about my experience.

I used to visit spa radiance about 5 years ago. I now have children and can't seem to get around to it. My mother in law was treating us to a spa day in Marin and we had to the worst experience ever. We waited in the lobby for 45 MINUTES! and then were told that we were in the wrong lobby and missed one of our appointments. We drove into the city last minute and went to spa radiance. They were suprisingly able to take both my mother and i later that afternoon. My mother-in-law saw Caroline and I saw Cheri - both were skilled - amazing facials. Relaxing and I left with that glow I missed. My mother-in-law also got a very nice pedicure that looked polished and lasted. It's a little out of my way now, but I won't make the mistake again and go anywhere else.

I have been having my brows done professionaly for years. When a co-worker recommended Rebecca ar Spa Radiance, I thought I would give her a try...What a surprise!!! My brows have NEVER looked so good!! She spent time talking with me about my brows, and what I liked and disliked about them. She made recommendations on how we could reshape them to better suit my face. They are perfect now, and make me look younger! Thanks Rebecca!!

This neighborhood gem has staying-power, and here's the secret: its' consistently warm, friendly and inviting atmosphere, coupled with top-notch treatments. I consistently return for basic service such as their relaxing and private spa mani/pedi (with the nicest professionals, by the by), and their waxing services. And of course, the occasional massage, which never disappoints. There are plenty of places to go to in the city for these services, but what keeps Spa Radiance at the top of my list is the top-notch reception + service I always receive. Kudos to Dorette and her staff for running such a professional and FRIENDLY operation.

I booked a massage to help recover from a hard weekend workout. I was treated professionally by the front desk staff, Dorette who explained that I would benefit the most from a light sport massage that could help with my sore legs. The massage was excellent as was the relaxing atmosphere and decor. It was a very postitive and healing experience. I plan to make this my new routine.

I was greeted by the front desk representatives while entering the door. The Front desk representatives were very polite and professional. There were refreshments and they even asked me if I needed some tea. I had a facial with rene and was great! She knew exactly what to do when I told her my problem areas. No products were pushed to me but I received great recommendations from her. See Rene for Facials!
