I like coming here after a long week or series of tough physical or mental events in my life. The staff treats me well and I can wait in the sauna before my appointment

I have been going to Balensi’s Institute monthly for over two years. Taking advantage of their spa membership allows me either a massage or facial treatment each month. They also have a happy spa hour on select spa treatments fro 2-8 on Tuesday and Thursday. The spa environment is quite and the staff is very accommodating. I understand they have spa packages, but I’ve never tried them out. The spa is located close to downtown with public parking across the street. I’d encourage anyone interested to check out the web site to view all the services available. The services are tremendous, however, it is the staff that makes me feel welcome and wanting to return month after month.

Jean-Michel takes him time explaining the process and making you feel comfortable.
He brings you into a spa room where relaxing music is being played. He applies numbing cream and you wait ten minutes. He comes back in with a design template. He uses it to help ensure the design is perfect. He draws the eyebrows and request your approval. Then the tattooing begins. He takes his time while reapplying numbing cream as he alternates between eyebrows. When he was finished, my eyebrows were perfect. He gave me an instruction sheet and a few packets of Bacitracin and Vitamin A & D ointment. I made an appointment for three weeks when he will check for any areas that need to be touched up
I went to a party that night and my girlfriends loved them.
Highly recommend. 👍👍

I visited the Balensi Institute for a $125 facial, having noticed it when driving by a few months earlier. It occupies a converted private residence adjacent to downtown 3rd Ave Chula Vista.

The exterior was a calm, attractive space with an enjoyable water feature. The interior provided a welcoming, warm, and well-maintained waiting area. All staff were friendly and attentive.

A few minor issues: 1) Treatment table bedding was cold, I expected warm., 2) Music was overall as expected, except for a track of a high-pitched female voice in some language sounding like she was upset., 3) Massage was limited to a short, light massage of the center top of the shoulders.

I would try them again if I found a discounted price ($50-$60). For over a hundred dollars, the service was slightly too basic. It lacked the higher-end touches of a heated treatment table pad, complete neck/shoulder massage, and more thorough prep (e.g., direct steam).

But, the staff was professional and pleasant.The esthetician did each of the facial treatments in a caring and competent manner. There was no high pressure to buy product or upgrade your service. It may be the best bet in Chula Vista.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and expressing your concerns, but we're happy to hear your overall experience was positive and relaxing. Our team members always make sure you feel relaxed and welcomed as soon as you step through the door. As for the minor issues we apologize for the cold bed we usually do have it set to a warm setting, but we have now made sure all beds are warm and cozy for all our guests. The music however, is a preset station and tends to have instrumental and vocal songs put together. We also do offer Happy Spa Hour deals for massages so you can try a different massage which will better accommodate to your needs and they're only $60 on Tuesdays and Thursdays! Don't forget to check out all our promotions and deals online and we hope to see you again soon.
