I had just come back from my trip and my whole body was aching from too much street partying and what I needed was a relaxing massage. A lot of friends have been talking about Elements Spa so I decided to try it out. I wasn't disappointed... I had the oil massage and had the most relaxing experience.. the whole... More

This spa was introduced to us by our hotel concierge, Morgan at Renaissance Shanghai Yu Garden hotel and it came highly recommended. My husband and I went there for 3 out of the 4 days we were there. We enjoyed the massages. We tried the Traditional Chinese massage, Japanese Shiatsu massage and Oriental foot massage and also the Elements Massage.... More

I booked a manicure and pedicure at this spa and was quite pleased at the cleanliness of the facility, friendliness of the staff and little extras/attention to detail in the facility. I would recommend this spa to anyone who needs a break during the work day or just looking to find a new "home-base" spa.

Living in Shanghai, my wife and I have been to many spas, but from the moment one walks into Elements, he/she is treated with VIP care by the front-desk staff - who have excellent English, by the way. The building has a French Concession villa charm to add to the experience. We both took the hot-stone oil massage. Really nice,... More

Elements has great ambiance and this along with the competent professional massages is what sets it apart from the many much cheaper options available. Having said that it's not exorbitant and if you are in town long enough to benefit from the purchase of their discount card it becomes quite reasonable for a good quality spa experience

did the travellers special - 1 hour massage and 1 hour foot massage. awesome. the hour massage is not "theraputic deep tissue" but oh so relaxing. surprisingly it was the foot massage that almost put me to sleep. clean, relaxing and well worth the $. much cheaper than the spas at the hotel and just as good.

I love the chines massage. Three of us went and two of us have had many many traditional chinese massages in China and Singapore and other places. These girls did not know how to do it. I felt it was closer to a swedish massage. I asked three times for her to go harder but she could not do it.... More

This spa is highly recommended especially when you are in the french concession area. It was a real find when my husband and I walked by it after our stroll looking at shops along Nanchang road. The staff are very nice and well trained, speaks english and have magical hands that made our soreness disappear. We were totally revived after... More
