Simply put- it’s not just that Dinorah has magic hands, it’s that the whole of Dinorah is magical! I purchased a package which came with some massage. Because I already get superior bodywork from my beloved physical therapist to alleviate complex side effects from chronic conditions, I wasn’t that excited to receive it and inquired about a substitution or leaving it out altogether. I wasn’t given a hard sell to take the massage, but after the manager described Dinorah to me, I reeeeeally wanted it!! I’m not sure what to write about Dinorah- she truly defies description. Dinorah has a very generous spirit; a warmth that is difficult to describe. Her expert hands rhythmically soothe from the lightest, gentlest application to powerful, deep, expert touch. She has a keen gift for knowing which areas may be needing extra attention. I was so impressed by her perceptive touch, and no wonder! -She has a medical background! Dinorah is compassionate with her touch, and her overall warmth is immediately soothing! Trust me- you will love Vada. The manager is committed to providing an exceptional experience, and her skillful staff delivers!

Groupon Brazilian Purchase-
I purchased a groupon for 3 chocolate Brazilian waxes, this was the only spa available until 9PM. I was able to make an appointment for the night of and was serviced quickly.
I got my Brazilian done by a nice female she did a great job.
I also decided to get my eyebrows done and had the pleasure of meeting Lita. She did an amazing job with my brows and I decided to go to her for my second Brazilian. She was quick and efficient she recommended a great product that I will begin using and share updates.
I also had a session with the laser technician and decided to go with the 6 session package.
The staff here is amazing and very informative. I will leave updates on their laser work once I begin my sessions.

Olga did my facial and it was amazing! A woman did my massage but I didn’t get her name but she was wonderful as well, and to finish off my spa day America did my mani and pedi! The entire staff was amazing and I will definitely be back!
September 10, 2016

You can only use two groupons a year. The massage was not very good
August 15, 2016
It was amazing!!!!! Best way to spend my 18th Birthday with my family. The people were so sweet and tailored to your pain areas. The massage and Facial was amazing.
August 13, 2016

Oksana did an amazing facial and Irena did a massage that healed my over-exercised and aching muscles. I was relaxed the entire time.
August 4, 2016
Tried the shellac mani for the first time and I am very pleased. The color is very vibrant and shiny and it didn’t take long at all. Plus there is no dry time. I’ve been here before and the people are always friendly from the front desk to the manicurist. Can’t wait to come back for another shellac.
August 2, 2016
Lucy did a great job on my facial I was so relaxed. My massage was first and it was so needed. Sitting at a desk more than 8 hours 5 days a week can really put stress on the body
July 26, 2016
This was the 1st place I ever got any type of spa services and as long as Dinorah continues to work here it will be the last for quite some time to come. She is knowledgeable, genuine and makes everything an awesome experience. I always leave feeling extremely relaxed and elated. Shes one of NY’s best kept secret. Truly a Queen of her art. Thanks for the amazing experience as usual Dinorah. See you soon!!
July 18, 2016
This is a convenient and very accommodating Spa. I got an appointment the same day and even showed up early and was taken. And most important, the massage was superb.

Short story: Definitely go here and ask for Mayra if you’re looking into body waxing. Ask for the upgrade to the two less painful waxes (each is $20 extra).
Long story: I was in the market for a body waxing. I was referred to Vada by a friend, so I decided to look into it. Best decision ever made. I had an appointment at 2 pm, and when I showed up they were ready to see me. I was scheduled to see Tanya, who my friend recommended. However, I was told she was not available so I was told to see Mayra. I chatted with her for a few minutes to discuss the types of waxes (they have three), and to ask her questions about the procedure. She answered everything, and we went off to work. I’m a hairy mammal, so the entire process was quite lengthy. It did hurt, after all hair is being ripped out of me. However, she was very accomodating and when I asked to take a break she agreed. It’ll cost you around $130 + tip (be generous). Not awkward at all, and now that my body is healing I’m really appreciating how beautiful it looks without hair. Great job Mayra! Thank you Vada.

I came here after viewing a deal on Groupon. They were very flexible with fitting my two friends and I in for a shellac manicure/pedicure (I called three times to change our appointment).
I had Rosana as my technician – she was awesome! Gave me a beautiful manicure / pedicure and was quick and efficient. They have a punch card system so I will definitely be back!
June 5, 2016
For the Swedish massage, let them know where you want some focus on. They listen. Please be nice when asking.
May 16, 2016
Definitely worth it! I did the 60 minutes Swedish massage, facial, mani and pedi. I really enjoyed it all. The facility is clean and well maintained. There was no waiting time. And staff was polite and ensure I was having a great experience!
May 15, 2016
I got the Brazilian Wax, and will definitely be going back again! it was super quick and relatively less painful. The faciility was nice and an actual spa like environment. People did not even try to push you to book again, even the tip is provided through envelope so they don’t see how much you’re giving. It was a great non-judgmental place and apparently you can get everything done there from haircuts, to mani-pedis and even laser hair removal!
May 12, 2016
I’m giving 5 stars for the actual massage that I received today by Timmi (sp?) and not the overall spa experience. Vada needs a makeover as well as a designer to come in and reorganize the work stations. Having said that, I was greeted with polite and friendly staff who made every effort to not keep me waiting long when I showed up early. Thank you!
I used a 60 minute massage groupon and my only option, massage-wise, was swedish. Typically, I prefer a deep tissue or sports massage. I’ve read previous reviews and some of their criticisms I find harsh. Personally, I tend to prefer the no-nonsense Russian sensibility so this spa suits me. Timmi asked me if I had any specific issues or requests and I told her but given that I was not receiving a deep tissue, I didn’t expect much more than light to moderate pressure, let alone extended work on specific muscle groups. Boy was I pleasantly surprised to find out that she is extremely skillful in her biomechanical understanding of the spine/muscles/joints/tendons and based on my requests, spent much time trying to alleviate the pain and discomfort I was feeling. Some of the massage was painful because I needed deep muscle release and I will likely have muscle soreness tomorrow but I appreciated her deviating from the groupon and being accommodating. I definitely recommend Timmi and will book another massage with her.

This was such an amazing treat! I chose to have the mani pedi facial and massage all in one afternoon. The 3+ hours of pampering while sipping on complimentary white wine was divine! The friendly, courteous and informative staff were welcoming and did everything possible to ensure my comfort! This is a must do!
April 17, 2016
Got the whole package deal of facial, massage, mani, Pedi. This place is literally the best experience I’ve ever had. So clean, professional, but overall nice people.. Not sure of the woman that did my facial she was great. My massage therapist was named dinorah and she literally changed my back! She listened to all my problem areas and fixed it. a warm kind woman who attacked all my knots. Now I’m walking tall without any back pain. Mani pedi by Lisa (sorry if that’s wrong) was great as well! Loved this place! Will definitely come back ASAP!
April 15, 2016
