My boyfriend and I each got a 60 min deep tissue massage and were very impressed by our massage therapists (I had Joe and he had Amanda). Whenever someone offered me something I said yes and I'm glad I did. So,... More

We went to Galena on our anniversary. We chose Galena Day Spa for our massages. The massages were verygood however I would've liked a relaxation room or some kind of transition room. It was massage over, walk out to the front room, here's a glass of water, we hope you enjoyed your massages,....... good bye.

We appreciate your feedback on our spa! We do have a small relaxation room for couples to enjoy chocolate and champagne after a couples massage. However, since we are a small spa and located in the hotel, unfortunately, we just don't have the space available for another seating area that is private. All other guests are more than welcome to... More

Galena Day Spa is a beautiful, quiet and relaxing spa. They offer a variety of services. Susan was my massage therapist and she was wonderful. If you're wanting to be pampered, this is definitely the place to go.

Top-notch experience from beginning to end! Upon arrival, the receptionist provided warm neck wraps and asked us to complete our paperwork. Our therapists then took us to private rooms to change into soft robes and put our clothing into lockers. The treatment rooms are lovely - warm, relaxing, and comfortable. The services provided (body wrap and hot stone massage) were... More

The good: Great atmosphere; nice and relaxing. Beautiful music. My husband had a GREAT massage with Mary. If you go with any of the specifically recommended massage therapists, I'm sure you'll love it. Unfortunately, this was one of the worst massages of my life.
