Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The front desk receptionist is horrible. I came down at 11pm asking how long the wait is for a 60min massage. She said 20min. I said how about for two people, and she said still 20min. I said ok and sat down and waited. My husband came in time. Then the receptionist said I have to pay and once I pay I have to wait another 30min. I asked why didn't you say to pay to be waiting and she said sorry my English is not good. Her English was plenty good. Poor way of doing business! She could have just said next available slot is 1 hour away instead of trying to have customers just wait in the reception area then come up with this random pay to be waiting again.

my friend and i had a foor massage at the place. the place is inside sofitel, 4th floor. a bit hard to find if you didnt know it before hand.
the massage it self was good, but the staffs talked too loud with each other, and kept asking questions, so i could not really rest.
but will come back for the massage and make sure brings a headphone

They are now located at 505 Nanjing East Road 南京东路505号, level 4 of Hyland Hotel (part of Sofitel).

Very friendly and professional with firm hands. Prices are reasonable and they close at 12midnight daily.

There was a promotion while we were here.
If you purchase a coupon and make an appointment for a later time, or next day service, there is a discount on the body massage.

Couple. 31 y/o from NZ. I don't normally write reviews but felt we should considering this place is number 1 in shanghai? Massage style pushed on bones and areas in a bad way more than muscles and knots etc just didn't feel like they knew what they were doing. We have had many massages around the world and this was not very good so we are very surprised by the 5 star reviews. We also felt it was a bit of a tourist trap, maybe it's lost its charm as it sounds like they've also put their prices up. I would not recommend this place.

I have been here before so I knew about the location on the 5th floor in a kind of dicey building...don't be put off by that. Once you get inside - it is nice. Price was okay and the massage was fine...albeit for the smell of smoke on him and his hands. I did not see on the menu...but the client next to me was getting his feet callouses removed - from a guy with a scalpel looking thing and a headlamp. I would go again...just request a masseuse that is a non smoker

Our excellent guide Mary from Miki Tours set us up for massages following a hard day of touring around Shanghai. We sorta had directions but weren't quite sure where the door was. Just walk past the Sofitel into an alley where a mystery door in the middle leads to a rickety elevator and you head up to the 5th floor. It looks dark and mysterious and a rabbit warren of rooms leads to a welcoming lobby and professional reservationists. We had a brief wait while we giggled to ourselves about our upcoming venture and my friend and I (both mid-aged women) were taken to a shared massage room. The massages were a full hour and among the best I have ever experienced. We liked it so much we returned for a goodbye Shanghai Reflexology session at The Secret Garden and felt proud of ourselves that we boldly entered the secret spot without trembling.

Not easy to find, it is at the fifth floor of a building, locals used it and that is a first good sign. I have opted for an aroma foot massage that lasts 60 minutes for about 230RMB. It was very good and includes a brief neck and shoulders massage. You are put on this comfy armchairs in a room where are people are and the massage starts. I was lucky to find silent people enjoying the massage but this might not be always the case, it is a minor issue though. Overall, a solid choice for sure.

I found it here at TripAdvisor, it was hard to find thanks to google map! but I accidentally found it when I was walking through the Nanjing road to go to Apple Store, I like their atmosphere and they have private rooms for those who want, I got massage with no.29 she was good, I recommend their foot massage.
