Went here to get the top to toe massage, where in one hour you receive both a foot massage as well as a second therapist massages your shoulder and neck. Very relaxing after long flight and jet lag from the US. Spa is more expensive than regular spa's in shanghai, however advantage is people speak English and accept all major credit cards. Very clean and friendly staff.

Dear Gon,

Thank you for your wonderful comments. Top to Toe is my personal favourite and I would say our signature treatment. Our Oriental Foot Massage is extremely popular, but Top to Toe puts the icing on the cake. I am pretty convinced that for international visitors this is by far the most popular treatment.

We pride ourselves on having English speaking receptionists able to deal with visitors from all over the world, and of course impeccable hygiene is a must.

Hope that you can come again in the future.

The staff are good, waxist is good nail technicians are good, masseuses are good. Deco is lacking, paint is pealing and air conditioners are filthy. For the price you pay these are simple fixes that would lift the place. Their rooms are also small and cramped. Trying to get as many patrons in as possible, which doesn't do much for a 'spa' atmosphere. It's a place to get a wax and a massage, and shuffled out for the next appointment.

Dear Mcneiceaa,

My apologies for not seeing your review until now but I agree completely with your points about the need for clean air conditioning and fans. We did some renovations of this shop after you wrote your review and will be doing some more again shortly but in the meantime we have begun frequent inspections of all shops to focus on these details and ensure that this does not happen again.

Thank you for your frank comments. We take all of this directly to heart.

I'll just write a few sentences about Dragonfly. . .

My husband calls this our home away from home. Save yourself some money and buy a membership card. Definitely worth it!

Dear Bronze,

We have certainly heard from our lady customers in the past that Dragonfly is their "second place" or some ladies used to call our foot massage room "the womb" because it was so warm and comforting.

It is wonderful to know that husbands too consider us to be a "home away from home". What better recommendation could we have than this?

Thank you so much for sharing.
