I have been going there for years and have tried others but keep coming back to them. Other spas might be more "spa like" but the massages/facials here are just a good if not better than the others and much less expensive. It's not a...More

I had compared prices for an Action FX treatment at various spas and medical facilities. Z Med Spa was almost 1/2 the price of all the places I had checked out ($1800 compared to $3,000), plus, a free microdermabrasion and a free second Action FX...More

The nurse, Gayle is absolutely terrific. The ambience is pretty good, but not a very relaxing spa to visit with girlfriends. The owner is cold and not at all service-oriented. I've spent $2-3K there and she still treats me indifferently. Other spas have much better...More

Z Med Spa has potential, but the problems outweigh the positives, especially when there are so many other options. The nail service is cramped into a corner of a room used for something else. It's basically an elevated chair, with rubbermaid foot bath at the...More
