If you decide to get a facial there, make sure to ask a lot of questions before they start anything, because they do not inform you on what they are going to do. An extraction was performed on me, WITHOUT my consent. The esthetician damaged my skin and when I tried to be friendly, to focus on a solution to... More

Was told that no matter what, Dana would always save a place for her clients. Not true. Recently, she decided to work only three days and I could not get appointments with her. After our long association, she told me that if I could not get an appointment with her that I should make one with someone else at Rittenhouse.... More

I have been going to Rescue Rittenhouse Spa for over 2 years now and the place and service has been exceptional. Of course, such exceptional service doesnt come cheap but I think the service is worth the money. I usually go in for their classic rescue facial with Aneta. Aneta is brilliant and my skin really glows after her wonder-hands... More

Booked a Rescue spa package with a friend on a Saturday and spent 4.5 hours there. Used the sauna and shower before I left as well. Each service (Facial, massage and mani /pedi) was excellent. Plenty of complimentary beverages served and light snacks. Only thing that could be improved would be some magazines while you wait for your services. I'm... More

A very upscale spa. My massage was nice. What I appreciated most was their line of products. A nice dry sauna to enjoy after your treatment too.

Have been seeing Dana for about 5 yeas now regularly. She is the best. A must is the P50 toner which is like a facelift in a bottle. She never pushes products and tells you when you should try another service. Just go for facials every 9 weeks. Place is gorgeous, relaxed, calming and a perfect way to de-stress.

Have only done European Facial with Dana, the owner. Been going there for 5 years. Results are amazing and so is she. Have hear wonderful things about others. Space is lovely. The most deluxe cosmetics and make-up lines. Feels like a mini vacation.

I was looking for a spa in the Rittenhouse Square area for my Valentine's weekend stay. I was pleasantly surprised at the degree of professionalism and courtesy displayed by the entire staff at Rescue Spa. The facilities were extremely clean and the energy felt warm and inviting. My facial was superb, one of the best that I have had. However,... More

Every 8 weeks for two years now Dana puts the glow in my face. Her European Bio Facial is the best. She is extremely knowledgeable and honest and does not try suggest a product or procedure unless you need it. The spa is lovely and relaxing. The reservation staff is mostly helpful. A few could lose the unflattering attitude. Don't... More
