Classy place

This was a wonderful little spa. Exhausted after working and being a tourist this was a haven. Very clean, affordable. Great for a tourist when you can't tell if a "massage" is going to be a massage

Relaxing.. Rejuvenating.. just what I needed!
Jan 2013 • Solo
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 place smelled wonderful (lemongrass, i think) and put me in a serene state.. I was so relaxed that the time passed by so fast.. only regret was that I should have taken the 2 hour massage instead of 1.5 hours..

Great little Chinese spa in Shanghai!
Aug 2012 • Couples
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. They all felt good, the Chinese and Japanese massage both felt similar, did not find much of a difference. I was hoping for a real Japanese Shiatsu experience and not sure if I got one.
The spa is very serene, clean and has an old world feel about it. The massages and treatments are reasonably priced. The therapists are professional and it was a very nice experience for both my husband and I. We will be back when we return to Shanghai.

Small and quaint but excellent service
Aug 2012 • Solo
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.

Rejuvenating Elements...
Apr 2012 • Couples
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, relaxing and rejuvenating. Not at all like the muscle intrusive non-oil massages that are pretty common around Shanghai.

I enjoyed it so much that this is the first time that I've written a TA review for a spa.

A regular haunt for a nice rub down !

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

relax and enjoy
Nov 2011 • Couples
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.

master zhu is superb
Oct 2011 • Solo
i have heard good things about elements spa and decided to try it out myself during my trip to shanghai. i opted for the traditional acupressure massage from master zhu due to my recent sports injury. i was impressed by master zhu's superb acupressure skill for a whole body treatment. but i was more amazed that i largely recovered from my shoulder and foot injury the next day. master zhu pinpointed the injury points and skillfully applied acupressure treatment to the injured area. i highly recommend master zhu to anyone who enjoys a traditional acupressure massage.

Relaxing and friendly staff
Oct 2011 • Friends
i stopped by shanghai to visit friends on my business trip to Hong Kong. My friends took me to the spa they usually go to for everything (ie. nails, waxing, facial, massages etc.) to ease my jet lag.
we were greeted by the friendly staff and pleasant lemon grass scent at the reception area. I chose to have a 90 minute aromatherapy, the therapist was very tentative and good which made me so relax that i wanted another session.
I went back to Elements Spa two days later to try the express facial. Elements Spa only uses imported products for their facial therapy. The facial therapist was really professional and the treatment was excellent.
Elements Spa's pricing is so reasonable and the staff, although limited in english were friendly and helpful. I am really envious of my friends living and working in shanghai having such a nice get away close to home.

Worst Chinese massage I have ever had.
Sep 2011 • Friends
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. At some points it was not even a massage at all. I would never recommend this place or go back for even a foot massage.
