Angie is fantastic but appointments are a problem. – I went to Andante for my first Brazillian wax. I was extremely anxious but Angie put me at ease immediately. She was so easy going and made me comfortable with what is a less than comfortable situation. I left the first time feeling sure that I would be back regularly. When I called to schedule my second session, I had no problems whatsoever getting in. I was so confident with Angie's services that I decided to schedule a microdermabrasion. I received a call one day prior to my appointment stating that my appointment was accidentally scheduled on a day that Angie did not work. When I asked if anyone else was available at that time I was told no. When I tried to reschedule, every date that I suggested there was no appointment available. I ended up telling them to just cancel the appointment and the person on the phone acted as if that was my problem, not theirs. When I called a few weeks later to schedule another waxing appointment , again, every date I asked for I was told Angie was unavailable. There was no effort to accomodate me with another person or to suggest a time she might be available. While I have found Angie to be delightful, I have found that the front desk staff has been deplorable. As much as I adore Angie I have not been back.
The best facial I've ever had – So I have to preface this review with some personal info.
Firstly - I have extremely sensitive skin. I also have the double "blessing" that it is also problem skin. I am a Latina with olive skin tone and so my sensitive problematic skin also has a tendency to scar after breakouts or rough handling. Lucky me!
Secondly- My view of facials is that it is a necessary evil. Why evil? My skin gets very easily congested and so extractions are a must to keep my skin clear and healthy - but extractions HURT!
So while the rest of the world gets to think of a facial as a pampering, relaxing experience full of herbs and steam and soothing masks....I get to look forward to it the way I look forward to a dental visit. I also get to look forward to exiting the spa with my face lloking like a red and swollen mess. Very embarassing!
Enter my review of Andante Spa and Angelia.
This was the very best facial experience I ever had. The spa itself was clean and quiet and soothing...all the regular spa features. I was greeted and offered a beverage. My choice was water. I was offered lemon or cucumber slice with it. I chose cucumber. Angie later informed me the cukes were from her mom's garden.
The facial itself was a standard European facial with a cleansing, steam, massage, extractions and mask. It was all done very thoroughly and best of all painlessly. (though I must note I took a couple of Advil before hand as I always do to combat pain and swelling - yes they're always that bad!)
The raving review is really about Angie. I have never ever ever in my facial history felt so at ease and so comforatble with an aesthetician. I have had facials in New York, San Francisco, Jersey, etc. etc. While I have my favorite (Mario Badescu in NYC) I have to still say that Angie is above and beyond any aesthetician in personality and her approach to her customer.
Where many aesths have made me feel guilty about the condition of my skin or made me feel like I had the worst skin in the world or huffed and puffed about how many extractions they had to do or huffed and puffed as if the senitivity of my skin was a character flaw in me...Angie did all the opposite. She did not force a blemish or congestion if it did not want to come out. This resulted in less redness and swelling and pain for me. Her approach to the extractions was a "us against them" attitude. She gave me tips on how to cleanse and how to moisturize. And lastly she never ever ever pushed product - which was a huge plus as other spas urge their workers to do this and generally they get you while you are in a very vulnerable position.
I am 100% confident that regular visits with Angie would result in great skin.
My only con? I'm moving! That makes the experience at Andante Spa and with Angie very bittersweet! But to all the other Nashvillians out there...take advantage!!!
Fantastic Facial – I had a facial with Jacqueline and really loved it. The location is fantastic and unpretentious, located just beyond a strip of antique stores.
Jacquenline has a thorough understanding of skin wellness. She coached me on which foods and products would be right for my skin. She also gave me tips on what not to do. Within one week my skin went from broken-out to clear.
If you are looking for the best of all worlds- price, product and knowledge I would fully recommend Andante. Andante is charming and the staff members were kind. Not to mention I received a follow-up thank you card from Jacquenline about a week later!
A quiet retreat – I have loved Andante since I discovered it. Angie is a teriffic facialist (the products she uses are great), and Lori is an exceptional massage therapist. I'm always made to feel welcome, from the cucubmer iced water on my way in to the person who asks how my service went on my way out.
It's honestly just a breath of fresh air. I always leave relaxed. When my mother comes to visit, Andante is always the touchstone of our girls weekend.
I absolutely recommend Andante to anyone looking for a quick but relaxing spa experience.
Best all-around spa – I first found Andante about a year ago or a little more.
Jacqueline is the only aesthetician I've seen there, and I won't go to any other spas after finding her. She is tremendous!! Her attention to detail and making sure you are happy with, and understand, your treatment, are quite unique. She has such positive energy yet it does not sap or take away your relaxing experience.
I have had the facial, brow wax, bikini wax, and the mini-spa experience with massage and sauna + body scrub. The massage was lovely but more of a relaxation rather than deep-tissue massage (and I am terrible with names, the masseuse was excellent).
It is never a problem to get in for an appointment or to check in or out; the front desk folks are professional and courteous. Other places seem rather pretentious or cold, but the staff at Andante are laidback and clearly enjoy what they do. I like the fact that I don't feel any pressure to buy products, as at other places I've had treatments previously.
Overall, an outstanding and relatively affordable luxury.
Finally I learned how to take care of my skin! – I have had the most wonderful experience getting a facial by Jacqueline at Andante Day Spa. I have had breakouts in the same areas and then dryness in other areas over the years and never understood why. I tried everything I knew to help my skin and just couldn't seem to find "that healthy glow". She took the time to educate me and help me with these areas of concern which was PRICELESS. Her knowledge of the skin and "magical touch" set a new standard for facials. I won't go any where else! For an exceptional facial Jacqueline is the one and Andante Day Spa is THE PLACE!!!
Great experience for a Spray Tan – I scheduled a last minute appointment for a spray tan, and they were so accommodating, making sure to fit me in. It was my first time getting a spray tan, and Ivana made sure to alleviate all my fears. She made the whole process very comfortable and made sure to talk through everything beforehand. I would recommend her for any event you may have. Overall GREAT experience!
THE ULTIMATE SPA EXPERIENCE!! – My first introduction to Andante day spa was during a ladies retreat. And all I can say is Wow! I had some incredible treatments but the facial with aromatherapy was off the charts!! This was my first facial and it felt like heaven. So I was hooked! I decided to have my 40th birthday party because I wanted something special and unforgettable. ANDANTE did not disappoint. I had a mineral soak, man/ped, massage, facial and body polish...I had an incredible time and had to visit again for the body polish...You must meet the owner YVONNE PATE....... She is dynamic, spiritual and passionate about delivering the ultimate spa experience. She makes you feel like you are one of the most important people on this planet in her spa. Did I also mention she brings you fresh baked chocolate cookies?? All I can say is GO-GO-GO to ANDANTE!!
Andante Day – My girlfriends and I went to Nashville for a fun weekend and spent part of a day at Andante. We had a WONDERFUL time! The staff is friendly, professional, and very skilled. We had massages, pedicures, facials and body polishing. All were excellent. Yvonne has made Andante a fabulous place to relax and pamper yourself. We even arranged for lunch to be brought in since we were there for multiple treatments. We've been to different spas and we really like the personal service at Andante and how they take such good care of the clients. The best part: no trying to sell products...truly a relaxing and pleasant experience. Thanks, Yvonne!
Wonderful Envoronment and professional staff – I highly recommend this spa. The environment was clean and relaxing. My daughter had a spray tan service done and we cant wait to take her back. The staff was courteous and professional. I hope you make it one of your stops while in Nashville TN.
