I am female. I’ve had maybe 7 spa massages previously, so not a newbie. At Clique,I had my first by a male therapist. As I have always done for massages, I left my “bikini brief” style undies on. That is MY COMFORT LEVEL.
When I flipped to my belly, the male therapist, w/o asking, abruptly yanked my underwear up into my rear end crack, essentially turning them into a thong and aggressively massaged my rear end. I am still shocked that I remained silent during this!!! It made me very tense and uncomfortable. On this day I had a thin pad on but what if I had been menstruating heavily and had a thick pad in my undies? I have never had any therapist disrespect my choice to leave my panties on and expose an area that I had obviously chosen to be kept covered. Previous to the massage, I had explained to the therapist that my neck/shoulders/mid back were the areas I wished him to focus on, so it wasn’t as if he were addressing a problem I had asked him to work on. In fact, he ignored my request and, just as he had on my friend before me, he spent the most time massaging my upper legs (including way high up on my inner thighs) and buttocks. My friend and I both had the same reaction to this therapist. She also had never before had a therapist act this way!
Other "cons" to this facility: Noise and hair chemical smells from the hair salon travel up the staircase to the common area of the "spa". Both my robe and that of my friend had tattered sleeves and each had 2" hole (mine on the sleeve, her's on the side) My massage finished 10 mins earlier than the 1hr I paid for. Water only is offered. Coffee and tea are available.... at an extra charge! Really? I saw a bowl of apples that looked like they'd been sitting there a week. Didn't even know if they were for eating bc they were dusty so I thought they were decoration. Previous spa experiences at other facilities had included little plates to serve yourself healthy snack choices (nuts, fruit, granola, etc) and a variety of teas and juices.

Save your time and money- Horrible service!!! – Cons- Customer services, facilities, equipment, time and money
Pros- Message (if you get the time that you paid for)
Please save your money and your time. The spa has terrible customer service and facilities are not the best. My friend and I went to the spa for messages, he made the appointment. We arrived about 10-15 minutes before our appointment and were asked to fill out forms (normal process). We were then escorted upstairs into a cramped, uncomfortable waiting area where fresh fruit (just apples) and water (probably tap) awaited us. We sat there for about 20 minutes and I said our appointment was at 1:30, it was about 1:50 at this point. The owner/salon manager (not sure) Krystal came up stairs and blamed my friend for not asking what their policy was, she then claimed our appointment was at 2:00 and that it's customary that clients wait 30 minutes. Most salons tell you their policy and process upfront especially when you are a new customer and are not defensive when you ask questions. She was very defensive and was lucky my friend has already paid the down payment or we would have walked out.
It was now time to change and get ready for our messages about 30 minutes later. We received frayed robes with holes in them and the message tables were bumpy and poorly made. In addition we paid for 1 hour and received about 40 minutes. The message was good, but don't hold your breath that they are licensed because the lady who messaged my friend was the wax girl!!
I would recommend that you save your money, your time and go to a place that has good customer service and takes care of it's customers. If you are up for a drive Terme D'Aroma in Olde City (Philadelphia) is great and worth the drive and money.
Horrible! – I started going there Summer 1999 (i think) after salon hopping & disapointment. After time went by I saw that the owner was losing her "LOVE" for hair, the owner was my stylist. I decided to one day try another salon because my hair was falling out from the root!!! My mother, and grandmother's hair was also falling out from the root!!!! My new stylist told me that my hair was constantly being over processed by Clique and not the excuses she gave me. Since I left in early 2006 my hair has been growing back great.
Lovely – Salon Clique is really nice!!! The people there are nice & pleasant. I also get my hair done there. They are really big on hair care. They only use Aveda hair products. I would tell anyone to go there to relax or to get their hair donel.
