They love us, and you will too!


This review is long overdue, but I have to rave about my experience at Riverwood! My first visit was in December with Patty, and she is absolutely amazing! Her technique is great and I was not sore leaving from my massage, like I have experienced with other masseuses. I was extremely relaxed during my treatment, and was so sad when it came to an end. I will definitely be a regular customer!

My husband and I got a couples massage at Riverwood Spa and there are no words to describe how amazing our time was. They were super friendly and asked all the right questions in order to tailor the massage to each of our needs. We both felt so relaxed and left the massage table like a brand new person. My husband already booked a second visit to Riverwood because of how good of a job Jason did to mend his constant backaches (due to his construction job). We are definitely recommending this place to all of our family and friends - you can't go wrong with Riverwood Spa!

Rachel and Patty are both one of the best massage therapists I have ever work with. They really tailor your massage to exactly what you need! I could not give them a higher recommendation. If you are looking for a massage OR facial in the RDU area Riverwood is the place to go!

I had my first facial with Rachel over a year ago. I came to her with super problematic skin. She has transformed my skin! Not only has she helped my skin in so many ways but it is also the most relaxing hour of my entire month. I always look forward to my appointment!

-Emily Bullock


Rachel is so warm and welcoming. The environment is relaxing and tranquil. Rachel asked questions and actually listened to my answers. I really felt like the massage was tailored just for me. I could feel the stress and tension dissipate. I would highly recommend her to anyone and I will definitely be back :)

Today was my first time going, I went In for a 60 minute deep tissue massage. I haven’t had a massage in over 4 years, and based on her reviews alone I had to try it. I am a hair dresser so, I carry all of my stress and tension in my shoulders and neck and I also suffer from migraines. I highly recommend Rachel she is amazing she relived all my tension, my body felt so relaxed and she also put me to sleep lol. I can’t wait for my next session!

I had my first massage (90 minutes) with Rachel a few evenings ago and had let her know in advance that my shoulder and arm were inflamed/in a lot of pain (to the point of tears) from a sprain weeks earlier and my neck/shoulders were extremely tight with knots. She did such an AMAZING job and worked SO hard to knead out all the knots. I felt SO much better after!

I am new to the area and had been so busy moving (and pulling all my muscles unpacking) I had not had a massage in at least a year. I have been going for massages on and off for about 30 years and out of all of the massages I have had (A LOT!) she was absolutely one of the best ever. Seriously. Even though she is tiny and it was after work at the end of the day she still poured all of her energy and STRENGTH into it. I was SO IMPRESSED. Her office is convenient to downtown Raleigh and CLEAN and QUIET and in a safe area with parking. I *highly highly * recommend her and I will be back!

I have troublesome skin (acne, dry) and have seen many facialists. Once I saw Rachel, I never wanted to see anyone else! She takes such a thoughtful approach-- She takes time to really look at and feel my skin at every single appointment to think about what it needs and what would be best. I cannot recommend her enough!

-Jill Katz


Rachel is one of my very close friends, she's practically family to me! She has always been very reliable and welcoming when I go in for my appointments, she's always very happy and chipper and its very comforting to know that I can be honest and open with my "skin care therapist" about my skin related insecurities. She makes sure that she has a full history of the products and previous treatments her clients have had because everyone's skin is different. I love how attentive she is to my skin and always makes sure her client's needs are met! Without a doubt, the best experience I've ever had when it comes to my skin! She's always telling me about the new techniques she's learning about so she can offer her clients more to choose from. If I could give her 100 stars I would! Definitely the best of the best when it comes to the individual clients skin care needs! HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!!

I saw Rachel a few months back for a facial. I loved it so much that I'm sending a friend here for her birthday! She was knowledgeable, professional, and created a very relaxing (and CLEAN!) environment. Can't wait to come back for a massage!

-Maura Reilly


I recently had my first (but hopefully not last) 90 minute relaxation massage with Rachel. It was amazing! Not only is she an excellent masseuse, she is a very kind, sweet person as well. You will be happy you booked an appointment with her!! 

-Tiffany C


Amazing! Rachel is very knowledgeable, likable, and she has magic fingers...literally the most relaxed I have felt in a long time! My skin was glowing and felt so renewed. I am definitely going back and sending all my family friends to her. Money well spent!

-Dianna Hummel


Rachel is great with facials! Super relaxing and very soft touch. I will definitely recommended her to my friends/family and I will come back very soon! 

-Gaia Sar


Rachel always does a great job with tinting and waxing my eyebrows! I love her new location - atmosphere is very relaxing!

-Allyson Garvey


I have very sensitive, acne prone skin and I trust Rachel completely. My skin loves it when I go visit her. She is knowledgeable and informative but never pushy. And I can't leave out how super sweet she is! She's the best!

-April Creech


Rachel is extremely attentive and professional. She makes sure you feel completely comfortable and informed throughout the whole treatment. On top of being an excellent esthetician, she is a wonderful person. She always made me feel welcome and relaxed! I would definitely recommend any and all of her services!

-Rachel Stuckey


I've had a few total body massages, after I got a Facial by Rachel... I will never get a full body massage again. The facial was so relaxing and cleansing. It even includes upper body massage and feet (Just what I need)! I'm looking forward to my facial next month! 

-Jessie Morgan


True professional. Very knowledgeable. Extremely relaxing facial... I almost fell asleep on several times... Both myself and my wife were very happy and skin looked great afterwards! will be back!

-Jordan Clark
