I love pedicures by Tara here, up in her perch overlooking the creek and the trees. I do not like climbing steps, and they have an elevator.

My wife and I got a gift certificate for a couples massage at The Blue Giraffe...great gift to give or receive!!! The Spa is located on 51 Water St. right on Ashland Creek. The friendly and professional staff greeted us and directed us to the changing/waiting area where we changed into robes and ditched our belongings into a locker. This area was simply a changing room with no shower??--normally standard for a changing room/locker room. We waited in a pleasant and soothing waiting area and our therapists Laura and Beau came out to welcome us and quickly return with a warm-stone platter with plush towell for our feet. Great!!! We then were led up a spiral staircase to the therapy room with two tables for our massage. Laura and Beau did a superb job with all kind of extras like warmed neck pillows and face masks and warmed cloths for our hands and feet--all perfectly timed throughout the session! The hour went by far too quick and we were led back downstairs to shower in their steam/shower room, which we had been told ahead of time that the steam part was not working. Not only was the steam not functioning (not that big of a deal...they invited back to use it when it was fixed) but the dual watering-can/hand held shower head didn't seem to have enough pressure to power either head alone, never mind both at the same time...Not a major deal, but it's the last stop before you change and step back into the real world again.
Will I return??? Oh yes!!! It may not be quite as nice as some resort spas my wife and I have visited, but The Blue G is very nice!

As an Ashland resident, I can go to the Blue Giraffe anytime. If ever I seek a similar experience elsewhere, I find it pales compared to the really enjoyable visit to the Blue Giraffe. It's located a couple of blocks from the main Plaza, and quite near the Plaza Inn & Suites at Ashland Creek. So, whether one is visiting or a resident of the lovely Rogue Valley, it's a nice stroll.

Massages, facials, a therapeutic whirlpool bath and an excellent steam shower room, along with a hair salon and nail stations are some of the reasons to visit. The decor is a lovely mix of safari style with masks and statues, acquisitions from all over then world, plus local artist's work hung on the walls. The kind and creative owners, the Kolkers, continue to add services such as facial rejuvenation, acupuncture, reflexology and many high quality face and hair product lines.

Have no reservations about trying the Blue Giraffe. Their motto comes to me often in my day: Paradise is Within. Let us take you there.
