“Fabulous spa!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

During a visit to Woodstock, my 15 year old daughter discovered this spa and suggested we go for messages. We did - and had an absolutely fabulous experience. Robes were soft and comfy, lounge was clean, relaxing and inviting. Best of all - the messages!! Reasonably priced - a great treat for everyone!!

“The spa of your dreams”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

I'm in love with the whole spa experience at River Rock. Whatever tension or stress you take in with you, is gone without a trace when you leave. The spa is spotless with lovely colors, sounds, staff and choices. I've had several types of massages and facials, and have been 100% satisfied. The dedication and love coming from the entire staff is palpable. Thank you River Rock!

“Knowledgable staff and healing experience”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

I have had several massages at River Rock over the past several years. Every experience has been wonderful - from the relaxing atmosphere to the excellent staff. This time I had a very specific request for my treatment. About 6 weeks ago, I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism - Graves Disease. In addition to losing about 15 pounds of muscle in a short period of time, a dangerous side effect of this disease is risk of heart failure with any elevation of the heart rate, I was instructed not to engage in any physical activity, by my doctor. For me, this was very difficult - I have always been an athlete and I have been snowboarding competitively for a number of years. So being unable to move my body around, combined with the loss of muscle left me feeling very uncomfortable and mentally down. I called River Rock to see if they could suggest something for my particular situation. In fact, they knew exactly what would help. I was told that several practitioners on staff could treat me with a muscle-healing massage that would address my exact condition. Based on my timing, I was assigned to Angel. After relaxing in my luxurious robe (and yes, treating myself to a handful of peanuts and raisins), Angel introduced herself and asked me to share the specifics of my condition and my concerns. She knew exactly what I needed and proceeded to use a technique (can't remember the name) that spread out and massaged what she told me was the fascia tissue around my muscles. After such a long period of inertia, this method felt so amazing. I had never had a massage like this before. I loved every minute of it and when it was over, I felt the way I used to after a long hot shower post workout. Through out the treatment, Angel answered all my questions and gave me information that I can use beyond the visit. I am going to make another appointment in a week. I highly recommend Angel and River Rock to anyone who may have a specific condition that needs attention. I have psoriatic arthritis in addition the the recent diagnosis of Graves Disease, so my case wasn't easy. I am thrilled with my experience and wish I had called River Rock sooner.

“Sweet, Quiet Zen”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

On a recent trip to Woodstock, a friend recommended I visit this spa and I was not disappointed. The first thing I noticed was the serene environment. Everything was so quiet and I started to relax immediately. I had an amazing hot stone massage followed by a sauna, then had a lovely cup of tea as I relaxed a while longer in the quiet room. The experience was perfect from start to finish and I know I'll return next time I'm in town!

“Not much for the money”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

I and my wife were there for a couples massage. I had a decent massage however the events surrounding it were very damaging. My wife and I were sent off to different locker rooms so I assumed that I was in men's locker room. Post massage I felt rushed back to the locker room. Whilst relieving myself in a morning fashion, I was shocked to notice a woman patron being placed in the room. I was completely nude and extremely embarrassed as I'm sure the essence of my morning relief wasn't pleasant. So I waited in the stall (manly feet exposed) until she changed and exited. I also tried to use to the one person sauna that was extremely cool as my burly body never broke a sweat. I brought up the cooler sauna to the front desk and they grew very defensive and dismissive of my claim. They stated it was set to a low temperature for safety reasons. Perhaps I have relative deprivation, but these issues I have never encountered at a nearby spa on route 28. OB
