My daughter worked there over the summer and had to chase the owner to get paid. She never got paid for her last week of work after repeated telephone calls. Disgraceful owner Colleen who takes advantage of college kids.

If you ever went there you would understand why this dump closed. It is/was dirty, rude staff and totally unprofessional therapists.\r
I can't belive they are considering re-opening with Tatiana doing facials. After my facial with her

Tatiana. Spa Viva closed. Tatiana is working with Rosa Martinez for Studio Artur, 728 West Avenue, Jenkintown, PA 19046, (215) 884-0004. They are upgrading and remodeling the spa area but Tatiana is at the same place offering her fantastic esthetician services: waxing, skin care, facials, microdermabrasion, paraffin treatments, eyebrows, etc. Tatiana does waxing and facials for both men and women. It was extremely hard to find a competent esthetician to do male Brazilians and when I thought Tatiana was gone, I was in shock. Not all estheticians will do male waxing and those that do often are not very good at it--Tatiana is absolutely the greatest! Her facials are wonderful. She recommended trimming my eyebrows a couple times, when I finally let her do it, I was extremely pleased. She also waxes the hair out of my ears--it stays clean for a lot longer than doing it myself or letting the barber trim it out. I am very thankful Tatiana is still available--it took awhile to find out what happened but it was worth the search.

After waiting for over 1 hour for the therapist (if you can call her that) to finally show up I was treated to the worst facial I have ever had. I tarvelled all the way here as a gift from my boyfriend-whose ex girlfriend goes here for her hair. This place is just terrible. The manager was quite rdue and uncaring and left me waiting in their so called waiting area without even a word of apology. I will never return here.

Spa Viva was a nice little spot, located in Jenkintown. I first went there about 2 years ago, after being given a gift certificate for massage, and was pleasantly surprised by the nice experience I had - quiet, easy to get in and out quickly, nice quality massage.

So, I decided to go back on my own, and have since gone back maybe 10 times - all for massage. Unfortunately, each time the quality of massage has progressively gotten worse. I overlooked it before, as it is a nice convenient location and they were always quite accommodating for last minute appointments.

But this last time, the expereince was so bad, I cannot overlook it any longer. The quality of massage was so poor, I seriously question the persons qualifications and if they have ever had ANY training. It was beyond bad. My husband rubs my feet better while watching sports center, than this person who I just paid good money for a massage.

And then to add to the poor experience, when I went to pay at the end, the spa told me the cost of the massage was higher than they had told me when I booked it. That is not acceptable. I would not have booked it at that higher price.

I cannot believe I wasted my money and my time for this poor experience. Instead of leaving the salon relaxed and happy, I left disappointed and stressed by being ripped off and then treated poorly by the spa regarding price.

Spa Viva, - you have now lost a returning customer. I will never go back to Spa Viva.

Tatiana, at Spa Viva in Jenkintown, PA is the greatest esthetician if you want a male Brazilian wax. It is hard to find an esthetician that will do male Brazilians and even harder to find one with the experience and skill Tatiana has. I had been to several other estheticians before I learned Tatiana had joined Spa Viva and was willing to do male Brazilians. Since I was extremely disappointed with the service and results from other area spas and estheticians I thought I would give Spa Viva and Tatiana a try. WOW! She did a fantastic wax. While I don't find the procedure either "pleasant" or "painless" she came as close as possible to making it a good experience. With other estheticians I often was left raw because they didn't get all the hair the first time and would wax the same area several times or they would leave a lot of obvious hair. Tatiana gets the job done very efficiently leaving the skin smooth and intact. My wife, knowing how bad other estheticians "butchered" me, always was amazed when I came home without a blemish or irritation after seeing Tatiana. I wouldn't go to anyone else!!

I have never been to Spa Viva, so I will not comment on the services or building, however, I HAVE been to West Ave in Jenkintown, and must comment on the parking issue several "reviewers" have raised. There is a public lot directly behind the Spa, so the only reason to park 5-6 blocks away is to avoid paying the meters. If you are that cheap, you shouldn't be going to a spa anyway. Jenkintown is a lovely quaint place to stroll and shop.

My sister hasn't spoken with me for the past several weeks after I got her a gift certificate to this place.
She told me it was by far the worst spa experience she has ever had.
The skin on her face (from an apparant facial) was sore and brusied. The massage she said was a horror and the place looked and felt like a brothel!
Sorry sorry sorry-I won't make this mistake again.

I had the most excellent experience during my facial today with Irene. Irene is a world renown highly educated esthetician who is experienced in all facets of skincare. I had a wonderfully relaxing and exhilarating experience during my facial which followed a one hour deep tissue massage performed by Nadina. Nadina is extremely knowledgeable regarding the anatomy and kinesiology of the body and its parts. Her therapeutic techniques have relieved my chronic back and neck pain. I would highly recommend this salon, its relaxing atmosphere and the incredibly skilled practitioners who work there to my closest of friends and relatives.

I guess some people have nothing better to do than write up "reviews" for places they have clearly never been. Spa Viva is a nice little place on a quaint shopping street. I have never gotten my hair done there, but I return regularly for massages with April. The massages are great and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. You cannot hear any noise at all from the salon up front and the spa overall provides a nice experience. It is worth going to and conveniently located right off of Old York Road. Try it out for yourself--I've had great experiences there!

I would recommend Tatiana to everyone I know. She is the sweetest woman and when it comes to her craft, she is untouchable. She's been doing my eyebrows for 3 years now and I would NEVER go to any other person. Seeing Tatiana is an experience all in itself and definitely worth the commute (I live in Center City). I followed her out to Jenkintown after she left the Body Klinic (Center City) and even commute down to see her in the summer when I'm living 2 hours away..

Tatiana is extremely thorough and gets every hair. She's professional yet incredibly warm and friendly. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT!!!

I made an appointment a couple days ago and i had Tatiana for a facial.
With her working on me it was practically painless and very enjoyable i fet competely relaxed in the working atmosphere with no pressure or any other rush of another spa. I thought the whole place was surrounding themselves around my schedue especially Tatiana to add on to her skills and cute European accent she was a darling and gave me a good pampering.

so going back!

I recently went to Spa Viva for a facial. I was scheduled with Tatiana and had an outstanding facial. I've been to spas all across the northeast (NY city, Connecticut, Philadelphia) and this was the best facial that I've ever had. I couldn't believe how meticulous she was. My skin has cleared up tremendously and looks great.

I'm not sure who's been giving this little salon such negative press, but in my personal opinion (humble, yet honest)-- you get superb service. I've already scheduled my next facial. Hope this helps for those of you looking for quality service!!!!

An abomination.
If these people can stay in business then I believe anyone can open a Spa.
The place is shaby and garish,the staff is rude and unprofessional and the services were horrid.
The noice from the hair salon is distracting and the smells well lets just say this is not what I had in mind for a Spa experience.

When I found out Tatyana was leaving the Body Klinic in Rittenhouse Square I followed her! I didn't care if she was going to be doing facials in her garage...
If you are looking to have a great overall skin care routine you must go to Spa Viva and ask for her. She has incredible knowledge about skin care. Her facials are a monthly must if you are looking for a great year round complexion. I have been seeing her for 2 years. She has helped my skin stay clear through two pregnancies, only enhancing my glow. Extractions are never fun at any facial, but effective. Pricing is comparable, service is wonderful. The Spa is boutique style and located in the back of a beauty salon.

Ok people, if you have ever been to The Body Klinic in Center City Philadelphia, you will remember the amazing esthetician Tatiana. Well she is NOW at Spa Viva!!! she started 10/1/07 and who cares about the previous reviews, she is now in the house. I was a faithful body klinic client only because of Tatiana. She can do the quickest and cleanest bikini wax around. Her facials are fantastic!! I found out just yesterday she relocated and had to see the new place for myself. The place itself is very nice. there is a hair salon in the front. You walk into the back where the spa is, the doors close behind you and its a completely different world. The lights are low, the couches and chairs are comfy. There are 3 rooms, each large and clean. They have a massage/salt scrub/treatment room with the shower heads overtop to wash ya down. Perfect! So go visit Tatiana. She is friendly, she is professional, and she has the biggest heart. I will drive the 35 mins from Center City to the professional because I know she is the best around!

For this place to advertise itself as a Day Spa is a disgrace!
This is nothing but a little hole in the wall behind a 3rd rate hair salon.
The servises were beyond awful as was the decor and the attitude.
Forget the fact that there is no parking and the nosie from the hair salon made me so nervous I was ready to scream!!

Well I guess you get what you deserve in life!!
I was told to stay away from here after Edith and Renee left,but being the know it all that I am I had to give it one last try.
Well what a disgraceful and deplorable place. It is loud-from the salon in front and the technicians were about as talented as a newborn!
My skin is still sore from the horrid facial and my back still hurts from the substandard massage.

I'm shocked at all of the negative reviews. I had my bridal trial there, and loved the service and the people. Rosa is truly fabulous & took her time doing my hair & worked magic. She & her staff at the hair salon are remarkable. The atmosphere is intimate, and what's wrong with that? I love that it's not loud and crazy! Great work people.

Pros: ambience, service

This was a total waste. What blatant lies this place espouses. After driving around for 20 minutes looking for parking we then were confronted with rude and totally uncalled comments by their staff. The facial my sister had was awful,the massage for me was like a bad dream.
How this tiny little place behind a hair salon can remain in business is beyond me!
Never again!!

It cracks me up that our competitor in Jenkintown, an old guy that wears makeup and a wig!, can still sit and write fake reviews about us, whats funny is, I guess he doesn't know that Linda has not worked here since January, yet he still keeps writing that he received a terrible massge from her, now how is that possible? Guess he was jealous she left him, like many others. So go ahead, keep up the obvious fake reviews, did you think noone was on to you? You really are stupid.

I had such a great experience, wonderful facial, taken on time, even given extra time! Not like some other production line spas in Jenkintown where you barely get the time you are supposed to! And everyone was very sweet, I will be back! Thanks Spa Viva!

This was perhaps the penultimate bad experience of my life with regards to a day spa. I have never had a worse facial,a worse massage,nor have I been treated more poorly than Spa Viva managed to shower upon me. After receiving this as a gift (from an ex boyfriend who obviously must have done this as a joke), I finally wandered into Spa Viva last week, only to discover a tiny little place situated in the back of a hair salon. After this rather poor beginnning I then found it only got worse. The facial was so poor that my skin is still dry and itchy. The massage,if you want to referr to a rubdown as a massage was awful. I am really not a very critical woman,but I need to say this is such a deplorable place that anyone wishing to pull a prank on someone should consider this-it is really that bad!!!

I am a 25 year old guy who if it weren't for spa viva i would have no self confidence at all. I go to spa viva every 4 weeks for a facial and a back massage. When i leave the spa, my skin feels flawless, and i am not afraid to show my body to other people. Before spa viva, i could never take my shirt off in front of others. Thx. Irene and Robin.
I never have any problem finding parking, and the front desk is very polite.

i do not know what you all are talking about but it is very odd that all of you have the same opinion on this spa. It seems to me that you all repeat the same cases without any concrete evidence. First of all, the size of the spa is perfect. It is the most well decorated and the most intimate place that i have ever attended in my life. If you guys are looking for a factory, go ahead around Jenkintown and you will find plenty of them. I guarantee you. I always go to this spa and to be honest, after a massage, a facial, a scrub, and a free lunch, i feel like a princess and i don't want to leave the place. Good job spa viva! Keep it Up.

Pros: best services and best attention

Cons: little intimate spa, is that so bad?

I do not know who writes reviews like the ones below about Spa Viva, but I assume it's just people's opinion. I frequently get treatments at this Spa, and to be honest, I leave the place very satisfied. As far as the owner's images are concerned, I do not go there to judge people, because I know that even if they were slimmer, the job would still get done the same way. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is used to being treated very well, and why not pampered as well. The girls do a wonderful job with waxing, but the facials and the massages are breathtaking. Go see it for yourself.

Took my finacee and my mother here after receiving one of their discountmcoupons. A very poor choice. The place is quite small, very poorly decorated,very small rooms with a minimum of professional equipment.The desk staff was quite "cold" and seemingly uncaring, and when I voiced our concern over some of the rather umprofessional treatments, all they could tell me was "try some of our products"!! I did not buy their products,nor will any of us return here. I do agree with some of the other reviewers comments and I wish I had seen these comments before we went here.But, I suppose one must live and learn.

I must agree with the other reviewer that this is not what one should encounter when going to a Day Spa. The place is really terribly decorated-actually quite loud and somewhat vulgar.The staff seemed not to care or to know what to do, and the reaction from the massage "woman" to my concerns was "well maybe you shouldn't have a massage"!!
I am not a spa expert ,but for sure this is not a place that must get any repeat customers.
I can tell you that this is one person who most definitely will not return.

My sister gave my wife and I some coupons that she had received for this spa and my wife and I decided to give it a try. It was a terrible choice. This spa is really just three-four small poorly decorated rooms behind a noisy hair salon. The location is really bad as the parking was non existant and it took us 20 minutes just to park 5-6 blocks away. The services were rather awful as was the attitude of the staff. I had a headache after listening to their constant sales pitch for their products.
I cannot aqdvise anyone to try this place-it is quite a bad experience.

If this is a joke it's really sick. This place is a small shabby little place stuck in the back of an out of business hair salon. When we first saw the owners we thought it was halloween. Just two very very large women who had trouble even walking. We left without the services as this cannot be for real.

PROS: IF YOU LIKE FAT WOMEN YOU'LL LOVE THIS PLACE
CONS: EVERYTHING IS AWFUL
